We are back from vacation. Before we left our technology issues are finally in check. New router thingy has been installed. I have spent the last several trying to catch up on computer stuff and just general household stuff. I am thankful that the router thingy was our only issue. So I am back ready to do a couple of posts for you prior to us leaving on vacation. My goal is to write a few posts that you can read while we are away, but please do not hold me to that. Life is a bit too unpredictable right now for me to make any promises.So Hoss and I spent some time talking the other morning. He and I discussed how things had been lacking a bit, what with the busyness of life and all. So back to early morning maintenance. Do you hear the excitement in my voice, folks? Really, I knew we needed this. The consistency. The connection time. That is not sarcasm either. I was fine with it. Up until Hoss mentioned Bertha and I wanted to make a beeline for the nearest exit. I'd have made a run for it, but I don't believe in running unless something is chasing me, so there's that!
Actually, Hoss is just a smart man. He knows what I need and when, most of the time, before I do. So Bertha came out. For those of you who are unaware who or rather what Bertha is let me explain. Bertha is a wood bath brush. So bigger than a wooden hair brush. More vicious. A bit more of the swing-ability factor. But alas, Hoss and Bertha are great friends. I, on the other hand, believe she's my second greatest nemesis second only to Loopy (we won't even go there, but her name is very accurate). The thing with Bertha is, I'm sad to admit this, she works. Like the release I get with Bertha, I do not get with other implements. Trust me, we've tried many lighter, easier, gentler implements. We've tried a few harder implements like a cheese board. Nothing works like Bertha.
