One of the best features of our current dwelling is that the services of a gardener are included in the rent. This is fabulous as we don’t lift a finger for yard work. A welcome change after 5 years in Seattle.
But, it is not without its perils. Ends up that when the gardeners trimmed the vine this fall they snipped our phone line, which caused the DSL to die a slow and painful death, getting slower and slower until it ceased completely, as the water got in and corroded the line. We finally got back online on Thursday after almost 3 weeks of disconnectedness.
Despite the invonvenience I think I would rather give up DSL at home in exchange for not doing yard work.
