We Blame Spectrum

Spokesdog Roscoe apologizes on our behalf the missing post yesterday, but we blame Spectrum for the trouble.

We blame Spectrum

Spokesdog Roscoe P. would like to apologize for missing our regular posting schedule yesterday. Typhoon asked that we clarify that no dog caused this outage (for some reason, he expected to be blamed).

Our internet went down at noon on Friday while Hu-Dad was in the middle of revisions of his next novel. That isn’t nearly as important as our post, of course, but he seemed to be concerned. Anyway, they promised things would be operational by 2, and then they suggested the repairs might take longer than necessary. We went to bed Friday night, we still didn’t have service.

So that’s our excuse and we’re sticking to it.

    Good to know that it was Spectrum. I’m sure no dog fur was in those connections. Did the boys enjoy a photo-free day?

    Glad it was only the great Spectrum problem and nothing else. If Roscoe says no dogs were involved then I believe him.
