Petty annoyances

We're hanging around the house some, for lots of reasons, several of which involve South by Southwest. First, one of the car windows just dropped into the door. Evidently, it's sits on one or more plastic brackets, which can be depended on to deteriorate in the summer heat. This has never happened before. It's amazing the number of people who don't think that they're driving too fast and too close to the curb and who have no consideration at all for pedestrians. One splash from a filty puddle is all it takes to spoil a day. In addition, the downpour has rendered the telephone land-line useless. There was a premonitory buzz, then some faintness, followed by static, and then nothing at all. What a nuisance! This used to happen whenever it rained, but months ago a technician did something and the problem has not recurred in the meantime. Until today. There have been some adventures in accessing the Internet.
