Friday, Saturday and Sunday were hectic days with the Holiday events during Bayview Daze. Today, it is so quiet you can hear a pin drop. The loudest noise in town is the fish swimming by. This is typical for the day after.

No lines at the Bayview Mercantile, the restaurants or anywhere. Parking is available everywhere. The carnival that played during the weekend sits forlornly packed up waiting for departure for the next destination.

Yesterday the RV parks were full. Today empty. All is well except my phone won't work. My Time-Warner package quit on me over the week-end. I took the modem back and exchanged it for a new one. The trouble began with the new one not being anything like the old one. Where there was only one phone jack there are now two. Where there was only one Ethernet connection there are now four.

As you can see, I finally got my Internet working, but my phone just sits there ignoring my efforts to get it turned on. There are two jacks. Neither work. I would call tech support, but then you have to have a phone to do that. If anyone out there is acquainted with this type of equipment, I'd appreciate some enlightenment.

PS: Tuesday noon my phone rang. Apparently they sent Internet to the new modem and forgot the phone. Fortunately, 24 hours later it works. Now all I have to do is figure out how to set up WiFi. It mentioned a gateway without an instructions on how to set it up. How is an old fart like me that learned to type on a Manuel Underwood, supposed to know this stuff. Oh well, maybe there is a 12 year old living close by.
