Therefore, my internet connection has been sporadic at best! I've had to make all messages short and sweet....lol
Monday, I called repair service to report this crackle on my line that sounded like bacon frying. Now, I live about 750' back from the street, down a little country lane. My house was built back in the 50s so the phone installation is pretty old. The phone truck came out, and he and he ripped out all the old lines (we had had two phone lines here when DH was alive), he reinstalled a new one (for just one phone) and a 'state of the art' new phonebox on the house.
A couple hours after he left, I picked up the phone to make a call, and heard this horrendous roar and no dial tone. So I called rapair service again to report this, and when the installer came back the next day, he was surprised that it was not working. He located the company bucket truck to come out again and work on the poled out on the street, but by nightfall last night the problem was not fixed.
Hopefully it will be repaired by noon today! Somehow, I keep hearing the phone ring, I try to answer and just get that terrible roar, and when I let the answering machine pick up the call, that part works, however, it does not record any messages left. I do have a cellphone to use, but I'm still curious as to who is trying to reach me on the house phone. I just hope it is not some family emergency and they don't have my cell number.
I'll post this while I still have a connection, and try to come back later on today with good news that my phone is finally working!
