FreddieP.ca has been stagnant for a couple of days for two reasons. One is my responsibility, and the other is not.
On Tuesday morning, I went golfing with a few trailer buddies. Eighteen holes at Katchiwano Golf Club near Lakefield in the Kawarthas.
I didn't drag my wide ass out of bed until 8:10 so I didn't have enough time to update the website prior to hitting the links.
We didn't tee off until nine o'clock and as you know the heat was punishing. By the time we were finished, I was exhausted. I really can't explain it.
I've walked 18 holes before, but on the heels of a road trip last week and a very busy day on Monday, by the time I was finished golfing my legs and arms felt like cement. And by the time I got back to the trailer it was so hot I really didn't feel like dealing with a slow internet connection, so I took the day off.
What a stroker.
Yesterday, it wasn't my fault. My server or provider or platform or whatever else Mike Boon calls it let me down.
I couldn't access my site builder. All day long, I kept trying to log on and I just couldn't do it. It was aggravating and made me feel quite forlorn.
It meant FreddieP.ca would be down for two days straight and it wasn't even the weekend. It made me feel cheap and inadequate.
Anyway, it's back up today and I'd like to thank all those people who kept checking in.
Funny how things work, on an average day when I update the site I get about one thousand unique visits. When I don't update the site on a weekday I get more than that.
Obviously, people check in several times a day looking for an update, and they stretch it over several hours which drives up the uniques.
Admittedly, about five hundred of the visits are my mother, who gets downright ornery when I drag my ass and fail to write anything.
