Glad This Didn’t Happen The First Time . . .

Feeling much better, I was back at work today, with a lot of catching up to do after being out two days this week, one my fault and one the calendar’s fault.

Getting home about 4:30 Jan and I were back on the road about 4:45 with our first stop at Pho20 right down the road for dinner.

But I’m glad this wasn’t our first time there, or we might have never gone back. Or even worse, if we had taken some friends there after telling them how great it was.

Now don’t get me wrong, the food was as delicious as usual . . . when it finally showed up . . . over 45 minutes later. And even then it dribbled out in bits and pieces over the next 30 minutes.

Jan, still working her way down the Chicken menu, had the Chicken Teriyaki, which she like so much that owner, who showed up toward the end of our meal, gave her a jar of the  sauce. And we notice the food started coming out of the kitchen a lot faster after she arrived.

Then it was on to the Wal-Mart across i-45 to pick up some stuff before we headed back home.

When I got to work this morning my new Amazon Alexa Wand was waiting for me. But since it had to be set up on my home WiFi I had to wait until I got back to the rig before I configured it.

Alexa Wand 2

And the setup was Easy Pesy, and only took a couple of minutes. I just had to install the 2 AAA batteries, go to the URL www.amazon.com/wandsetup, press the button on the wand until it turns orange, tell it to connect to our rig’s WiFi, and about 30 seconds later it was done.

The Wand is magnetic so that it can be stuck to a cabinet, or using the stick-on hook, you can hang the wand with the loop on the end.

Otherwise it acts just like a full size Alexa except you have to press the button before you say, “Alexa.”

I’ll have more info as I fool with it.

The Word of the Day is:

Thought for the Day:

Old age is not as bad as I thought. It’s a good feeling when you just don’t give a damn anymore and you feel lucky just to wake up in the morning.
