App Issues. I Blame The Russians. Or The Chinese? Or Maybe It’s Those Murder Hornets. Or Now The Zombie Storm.


Darla, my app wont let me log in. SHUT UP Betty, I am posing

Yes you read that right. A Zombie Tropical Storm. As in a storm that had died off in the M’s earlier this year is back. Swirling away on its way to us? And if you think all that is a wreck, guess what? The App is not working. And I have ignored it this year. Apps are like old wood boats, they need never ending love and attention, and this one is way past due for some varnish and a refresh. Sorry to kill a day of classic boatness. For an APPDATE. But it is what it is. Go back to yesterdays story. That one was a wonderful reminder of all the good this year.

Has anyone seen my phone? I dropped it right here.

Of course you are not reading this on the app, which means you don’t know I know that the App is down. Kind of like the power company doing a TV ad about the power being out, when you don’t have any power? It’s a loop of communication hell.

What’s an app Gabby?

Bob, you were so much more interesting when your app worked. Take me home.

Hello? Hello?


Stay tuned for APPDATES, and sorry for the issues.

    It’s 2020, expect the unexpected, plan for Armageddon and hope for the best. Hey, half of my family survived the infernal equinox and there’s only the fourth quarter left. What could possibly go wrong?

    The news on my phone says “I’ve been wearing my Apple Watch wrong all this time”. Maybe that’s your problem.

    I was beginning to wonder if I was the only one using it and having problems. Usually, the rest of Woodyboaterville is the first to complain. So hAPPy app day. Here’s something to take your mind off it.

    Just an FYI for you old goats out there …Remember 1989 that “brick” cell phone cost $500.00. Bag phones were $400.00. The Motorola “Flip Phones” cost $3000.00. (The next year the cost of the Flip phone dropped to a $1000.00)
    Cost per minute use was forty cents plus, unless in a volume buyers group.
    Roaming charges were a shocker driving from Wisconsin to Florida back then. I saw roaming charges over $3000.00. Adjustments were made.
    Life is good.

    I demand a refund!… I am entitled to the app! You should now pay off my student loans, (wait , those got paid off 30 years ago),…then you should uh… US for this thing we got for free, that you developed at your own time and expense! Mobs are heading down to Reedville to protest and smash your mailbox, tho they may get tired and forget what the real issue is on the way…

      I’m up for that rally. But not too early. I get up at 6 but after having to get up 3 times at night to pee I’m still tired and really don’t get moving until after 9. Also make sure there are some clean restrooms along the way, maybe we can use Matt’s when we get there. Also I’m pretty sleepy by 10pm. An afternoon nap might be good too. And food, will there be something good yo eat along the way? No junk food please I want to watch my carb and sugar intake. Can I hire someone to protest for me?
