Halloween gremlins creep in to finish off our Florida vacation

Posted By on October 26, 2021


Let’s start with "we had a great time in Florida" this past week" (more to come) … but the cleanup weekend ended with a couple gremlins. I blame it on the "uncarved" pumpkins left by the granddaughters. HA!

Actually there were no unexpected problem while they were in Delray Beach with us, but after they left the streaming/cable box crashed. At first I thought it might be just a service issue since 2,500+ in our HondaOdysseyTire211024area were having problems, but by Sunday morning it was apparent that our box had malfunctioned. After a L-O-N-G wait on the phone, I looked around and found an open Xfinity office and headed over to wait in the long line. They did not have the same box, but gave me on that would work.

On the way back … BOOM … a front right blowout on the 2002 Honda Odyssey van. Ugh … just before our flight and on a Sunday afternoon no less! So decided to make my way back to the condo, hook up the TV and watch some football. Next trip down I’ll deal with the tire issue …and it is probably time to replace all four.
