Yesterday morning around eleven o'clock Tony came inside the trailer and told me that Matt had gotten zapped, again but was fine because the voltage is so low. So I went outside to tease Matt and to say hi to Lisa, Meghan and Steve. They were standing out by the barn. "Hi y'all!" I said. "Where is Matt-the-Ready-Kilowatt-Man? I heard he had another light (up-the) bulb moment this morning. Matt came out of the barn smiling and all of us laughed and teased him about it. "Where did you get zapped this time?"
"Well, Miss Nancy," Matt said, "in Nellybelle and Hank's pen, again but this time I reached up and accidentally touched the wire with my hand. I'm fine. It happened because I was tired and it sort of jump started me."
Around four-thirty later in the day UPS arrived with my new Bose 10 iPod Docking System that I had ordered last week! When the friendly driver handed the big Bose box to Tone, Tony looked at me and said, "This thing weighs a ton, Nance! Are you sure you ordered the right thing?"
When he set it down on the chair so we could open it I looked at the box and said, "It says it only weighs twenty-three pounds. T. our portable Boses don't weigh more than five pounds each. Open it up." When Tony pulled the Bose out of the box it was huge—at least four times the size of our smaller Bose portables." Here's a picture of the big box that it came in.
I had a lot of fun doing The Harley Show and visiting with Harley this morning! Dusty was his Pet of the Week. When I told Harley about me taking the beginners drum class at Club Ed he teased me about it. When I told him about Donna Schloss, Lisa and Sara signing up for the drum course with me, Harley teased me more and made me laugh. So I decided to tell him about my pink drumsticks that I am still decorating, painting my dull gray drum pad lavender, and secretly taking a free drum lesson online so I wouldn't make a fool out of myself when I attend the class.
After doing Harley's show, I called the Bose Corporation and spoke to Donna, a very friendly customer service woman. "Donna, I love the Bose 10 but it is gigantic. I am old and can barely lift the thing." Donna laughed and she told me that there was no problem about returning it, and she agreed with me about it being much bigger than the other Bose iDocks. After she gave me the instructions for returning it to Bose I thanked her and then started making breakfast.
At eight-fifteen before T. got back from Medina—the electricity went out, and it came back on eight minutes later when Tony walked inside the trailer. I wasn't surprised because he always lights up my life.
After lunch Buttermilk took us to Kerrville so I could ship the big, boxed up Bose back to Bose. It was raining when we parked two doors down from the UPS Store. Before I got out of Buttermilk I took these two pictures of Tony holding the Bose box.
