Mumpower communication report #1As I reported here yesterday, it seems that both Tennessee House Minority Leader Jason Mumpower and I are trying to get in touch with each other. Two days ago, Mumpower called my cell phone twice to try and reach me there (as it would happen, State Representative Stacey Campfield gave Mumpower my cell number). Mumpower calling me at my cell phone is normally a fine thing, but the one fact that I am sure he is unaware of is that White Pine, which is where I make my home, is in a reception "hole."
By "hole," it should be understood that this does not mean that I can't take calls anywhere in town. Quite the contrary is true, in fact, there are many places in town where my phone will pick up just fine. Unfortunately for both Mumpower and myself, my house is not one of these places. The Norfolk and Southern Railroad runs right through my backyard, and the tracks and radio communication from the trains interferes with a good cell phone signal.
Realizing that the Leader had twice attempted to contact me Thursday, I then tried his number twice yesterday (in his second message, he was kind enough to leave what I assume is his home telephone number). I was not able to reach him directly, so I left two messages and made sure to include both my home and cell numbers, and did the same in an e-mail I sent him the other day.
I called his number again this morning, but could not reach him. I will make another attempt this evening.
