Monsoon rain brings such refreshing relief from dry, dusty terrain and water restrictions.
The monsoon also plays havoc by way of waterlogged telephone lines - or so I thought. However, our dead as a doornail telephone resulted from some hard working trench-diggers installing a very nice new fence around next door's swimming pool.
It just so happens that our telephone line travels right along the fence line before branching off towards our house! Ho-hum, ho-hum.
We checked out the batteries in the cordless phone, inspected our waterlogged yard for the possibility of rain soaked lines, rang Telstra on a mobile to report a fault but did not think for a minute that the line could have been cut in a couple of places - neither did the men dismantling the old fence and putting up the new one!
All is well that ends well. Our line is now restored and some of my emails have been answered this evening. Will get around to more tomorrow. Meanwhile, I do need to acknowledge a very important person.
Thank you Megan for posting notices on my site. I am most grateful.
Talk to you all again soon.
