After my husband left for work yesterday...

...I received a call from his boss telling him not to come in because all communications were down. This is IBM, all communications are never down.They have backups for their backups. I thought 'Whatthehell?', but called Daiv and told him to just come home, so home he came. He actually was able to work from here, just not from the job site.

Turns out it was sabotage, AT&T underground cable lines were cut just south of here-- fairly close to where that little earthquake was last week or whenever & to where IBM is -- and everything went...llandlines, cell phones, 911, police and fire stations, even hospitals. They sent firemen to the tops of the hills to watch out for fires!! The hospitals had to use runners to carry messages from room to room. The south valley -- Santa Clara countiy which is us -- Santa Cruz and San Benito counties were all affected.

This is messed up.

On-the-other-hand, it's been raining for two days and there's just nothing so beautiful. Water!!!

    herefordroad actually has a life and so, was unable to beta this one. Any and all mistakes are my own.
    Story throughout contains excerpts from The Brian Kinney Operating Manual including commentary from the Editors
SUMMARY FROM THE EDITORS: ‘“It’s been six months since our friendship began and I was just thinking that maybe we should y’know  celebrate or…something, Hummm?”’
    We learn, we teach, we help each other along the way and we become better people for the journey
AUTHOR‘S NOTES: This story projects 59 years into the future and reflects all that that entails, many of the loose ends are tied-up. I dance with POV, I dance with time, in essence, I just dance to the song Brian & Justin sang to me.
    Contains: Brian_others, Justin_others. They grow old, they are always together for just as long as time allows, but, ultimately, they will die.
    As someone wise once said, ‘In the end, it’s all about Brian and Justin’ and I can only agree
