I'm glad I got the upgrade to the Magic Jack. There's always room for improvement. In the past, I would sometimes hear an echo of my own voice when calling friends in Broward County (the next county up). But I've had few problems with calls to Canada or St. Louis, MO.
I didn't get the gumbo made but I got my grocery shopping done. (The chicken is still thawing anyway.) Later I'll do some laundry--I have to wash the throw rugs that got soaked last weekend, among other things. They've been drying out on the terrace this past week.
There was a fly outside the door when I got home from the store, so I let it inside for Lucky to play with. He'll chase it for hours.
I think I'll go for a tea across the street.
