A Few Glitches

Guess boring would be the situation if not for a few glitches here and there. We face a couple that give cause for concern.

First deals with Immigration typos that require reams of paper to rectify. We're in process. No trips to Canada for yummy Vietnamese til a green card is returned. We must remain within the confines of US borders until the requisite card is in hand.

The second has to do with bureaucratic dilemmas in the power industry of Dacotah. We checked with our local electricity provider about regulations concerning rewiring our home and were given the go-ahead to proceed. A noon raid by a local electricity company employee put an end to that process. Looks like we will be without power for the ensueing two weeks - a circumstance that causes us no problem in the mountains but one that creates an entirely different reaction here on the prairie.

Updates to follow when they occur.

In the meantime, work with a local committee to complete a new look for the local municipal hall took most of the morning yesterday - rake and shovel in hand, I felt very proud of the final product - pics to follow.

Hope all is well in your world and that we find enough electricity to stay on line for the next two weeks. Should I not, I'm sure you will understand.
