and Ice Cream Castles in the air...
(Good thing the Bag Lady didn't write that song, eh?)
The Bag Lady had a very busy day yesterday. Between yet another round of phone calls with her ex-satellite provider over the erroneous bill (which almost made her miss the inauguration), and the delousing of calves (which went very well, and very quickly) and going with the Rancher out to his jobsite (yes, even on his day off!), the day flew by.
She is hopeful that things are now straightened out with the satellite company, but only time will tell. She never did hear back from the supervisor, as promised, but did get a call from the Collections Department! She almost went ballistic, but called the billing department yet again, spoke to another supervisor, who, after almost 45 minutes on the phone, succeeded in cutting the Bag Lady off! Rather than call back immediately, the Bag Lady sat down and watched President Obama's speech. She found it very inspiring.
She then called the satellite provider back, spoke to yet another supervisor (the third one) and thinks everything is finally straightened out. She hopes.
She and the Rancher herded the calves into the barn where the delousing took place in record time. The product that they used is a liquid that is poured along the animals' spine. All of the calves should be parasite-free, and the Bag Lady and the Rancher, too! Actually, the Bag Lady managed not to get near as much on herself as she has in past years, so now she's wondering about that itch in the middle of her back..... nah, can't be!
When they finished the chores, they had to go out to the Rancher's jobsite and fuel the machines and do a few little maintenance-type chores. The Bag Lady took her camera and (if her computer will allow it) will put together a video for you, if you are interested. Let her know in the comment section if you want to see a little bit of what happens in the logging sector.
