Before I tell you about the ‘plunge’ Terry and took I want to tell you that Fuzzy and Boomer were featured on PeaceLovinWhisker’s blog on the 30th of January.
She does a really nice blog featuring furry friends from all around blog land. If you get a chance to hop over there I think you will find your time well spent.
Yesterday Terry and I decided it was time to ditch the house phone and just move the house phone over to his cell phone. He doesn’t like to use the cell phone so it sits in his truck, or in his coat pocket, or out on the tractor seat usually dead.
Lots of people (our ages) have moved their house phone number to a cell phone and just take it with them everywhere.
Now you and I know that we don’t ever really GO anywhere, but we do go around our place, sometimes to Grand Junction or Montrose, but really we don’t travel.
The move was to save money. These fixed incomes seem to have a way of making you always looking at ways to save money. So we took the plunge. No more house phone bill, the same cell phone bill, and I have to get used to having a phone close by at all times.
I rather stopped that when I retired…my phone at the office sat right next to me and rang it’s little bell off all day long. When I went home at night the ringing phone was NOT something I wanted to deal with.
But that was three years ago, so I think I can deal with the random call we get now. Just a call here and there…nothing like work.
So we did it! We are now a cell phone only family! My 6th grader grandson’s comment was: “Cool! Just like us!”
Terry and I looked at each other and smiled…we have ARRIVED!
Off to help Terry with the furnace. We work a little bit every day. He is at the point now whereby he can get the Baso valve off so he can see what the problem is with it. Everyday we are little bit closer.
After he is feels confident about the furnace he wants to take a trip to Minnesota to look at a tractor there. A 4040 John Deere–I think it would be nice if he could find one much closer. He found this one through a tractor site and at this time it’s still for sale. (I’ll bet we don’t go, but everyone needs to dream).
He is also wanting to go over to Brush, Colorado to the tractor sale there to see if they have a John Deere 4040. That one would be ever so much better and easier to get too. Still he knows there is one in Minnesota as he talked to that guy.
Well, off to actually get the house cleaned today!
