My rubber ducky got all tired out
The NEWSJournal called for news of any problems we had on New Years’. And I had a couple I’d like to share with you.
First of all, you can’t very well fill your bathtubs without a rubber ducky, can you? Well, that poor dear is still swimming around to this day. I think he is getting tired and out of sorts. Guess the water wasn’t needed elsewhere.
Whatever will I do with all the extra ice? I cannot (and will not) drink water or any beverage without ice, so I bought some ( a lot.) Email me if you want some.
My computer said "January 4, 1980" on New Years’ Day. That maybe took a good 10 seconds to change.
My quartz clock, which starts blinking every time a Marine helicopter passes overhead, played it cool and stayed on time. I was kinda counting on fixing that after Y2K. But my helium "Happy 2000" balloon on my front fence dropped over and died. Y2K or the rain? My back fence, loaded with 1,000 white lights, died also. Y2K or a wet GFI switch? It’s been a tough transition at my house, as you can see.
But I knew at 1:50 early Friday morning that the glitches would be minor. Good grief, if Tonga and Kiribati, Rumania and the Ukraine went through Y2K okay, how could San Diego mess up? This is a rhetorical question.
And the January, 2000 lucky winners are……... Roger Wolfe and Fritz Wolff. Both have received two free lunches at Coco’s Café and Bakery, Rancho Bernardo’s most popular family restaurant. Roger and Fritz are major players in the RB Neighborhood Watch and Emergency Preparedness Computer Services Division (computer programming, data entry, and mapping.)
Other good news. NHW and EPP will soon be Online with a new computer and software. We are joining the 21st Century, thanks to our successful Giant Drawing on July 5. We thank each and every one of you who helped us by buying over 8,000 tickets. We will publish exactly how this money will be spent by Neighborhood Watch and Emergency Preparedness in our Newsletter.
