until the Good Lord and Verizon bless me with internet again. Today is the last day I will have internet access in this house. The new house has no telephone lines as yet, so I do not know how long I will be gone from here. I do hope you all will behave in my absence, especially Irishfrndly65 I do hope that no one gets their feathers ruffled if I do not reply to comments that I receive after today. I don't want to be answering in the middle of January things that say Merry Christmas Since I will not be here, I'm sure, before the holidays I want to wish you all the very best. I hope that whatever days you celebrate are filled with love and laughter and great times. Just remember...I shall return!... I just have no clue as to when What is the longest you have ever gone without internet? How painful was it for you?

It was for over a month and it was so horrific. I felt like i lost my way because i had no connection with my daughter and my friends. Everyday felt so frustrating. Surely, losing something that you have accustomed to is so painful, i missed mylotting a lot..... my computer got busted, so i have to have my internet cut off temporarily. Merry Christmas to you too, you will be missed on here.

The holidays were very nice, thanks Internet is back on and was sorely missed. I had a backlog of jobs to write and, even though I missed the deadline date, I wrote them all and the company still paid me. That was a very nice Christmas gift

I thoiught I answered your discussion earlier tonight but I don't see it. Mystery??? Could you go wireless? Are you oving to a remote place where there isn't reception? Just a thought, that wireless might be the answer for you. Good luck, I have had to go without internet for three or four days and it was crazy for me. I think all my friends really are in my computer....LOL...............

All of my friends seem to be on the net as well. And my grown up kids. But, I am sure I'll survive No mystery, my friend. You did answer the discussion earlier. Somehow I managed to post this discussion twice, once without actually asking a question and on with a question. I thought mylot would delete one of them but I guess not

Hey fwidman! Oh, I am so sorry to hear that you won't be around for the Holidays! I was so looking forward to seeing what shoes you would be wearing for Christmas and of course New Years Eve! No Phone Lines! Where are you moving? Some place in the woods or uninhabited lands? Well, I just want to say that it has been a pleaure sharing laughs and other sillys with you! And of course viewing all those wonderful shoes that you come up with! So come back as soon as you can! And here's to a wonderful Holiday to you and your family and a very Happy and Healthy and Joyous New Year! Your Friend, Opal

My reply got eaten somehow The house we are going to is only a half a block away. But, it's a new house. There is what appears to be a phone box going to the house but no farther. I will have to get Verizon over there to wire the house and put in phone jacks and such. What fun! With the holidays fast approaching I have no idea how long that will take. As far as the shoes go, everything is a mess now and probably will be a mess when we get it all moved. I may be barefoot for Christmas!

The longest time I have gone without an internet connection was four weeks because of changing the landline connection provider. It was very difficult without an internet everyday so I had to buy and use a mobile broadband. We will be looking forward for your return here in mylot!Wishing you good luck to have an internet connection again very soon and Merry christmas in advance and have a great New Year. Blessings.

Thanks, suzzy I don't think moves are ever smooth, but we are trying. Fifteen years of living here means I have way too much stuff. But, what to keep and what to toss? Happy Holidays my friend
