We’re off this weekend – going to nephew’s wedding in Alliston for a couple of days, then to our friends’ cottage for one night (yes we live in a cottage in cottage country, but it’s different going to someone else’s 🙂 ) and then back in time for grandson’s birthday party Sunday evening.
So have been trying to get everything possible cleared out of the way before we leave. Lots of calls in and around Midland, Honey Harbour and Tay Township; many new, plus a few follow-ups (damn wasps!). All of which was going according to plan. Until yesterday afternoon, that is, when he got to the right road for an appointment in Port Severn and went to double-check the address on his phone. No phone!!!!
It is most definitely not anywhere in his car, and our attempts to re-trace his travels were completely and utterly unsuccessful. We even toured between here and Kirkfield (yes, we do go over that way on occasion, although it’s not really in our area) looking along the side of the road through a stretch, because according to the google maps timeline, he (or rather, the phone) went up to Kirkfield, then part way back and then it stopped transmitting. The PLACE were it stopped transmitting was nowhere near either of the two places he stopped along the way though, which was very weird. The trail stopped at a corner pretty much out in the middle of nowhere. *sigh*
Anyway, no phone. And several hours (for both of us) lost to hunting for phone. For some unknown reason, it wouldn’t show up in my phone locator thing-a-ma-jig – got to hate it when THAT happens!!! For about the first half hour after he noticed it missing, I was calling it and it was ringing – but then whoever had it apparently turned it off and it started going right to voicemail. Me, at that point, I was pretty much convinced that the trip back to Kirkfield was not going to be successful, but he wanted to try so try we did.
Which meant that the 3 more jobs he had been going to get done yesterday have now been added to today. And I got to stay up late last night to get my marks finished and submitted and write a cover letter for a job I won’t get (but I’d LOVE to get it and I’d be AWESOME at it).
So now he’s out doing two days work in one (with my phone) and I should get off my butt and go find a big-enough box and wedding gift wrapping paper but I’m tired and clearly am going to need more coffee before that happens!
ANYWAY… how’s that for long, rambling & nothing much to do with solving your pest control problems? But of course, if you’ve stopped by because you do have a pest (other than the sort you married or brought into the world your self), we will be happy to solve it for you.
Just not today, and definitely not this weekend cuz Alex & Michelle are getting married!
We do have a friend staying here this weekend to watch the mutts and give the chinchillas their treats, and he will do his best to take phone messages, but chances are that phone calls likely won’t get returned until Monday, sorry.
However, I will have MY phone and will check and respond to email when I can. No reception at friends’ cottage last time I was there though, so that might be an issue. ANYWAY… I will do my best – and rest assured that by Monday we’ll be back and ready to solve your pest issues.
Have a great weekend!
