When you have some time (and there's no hurry), would you be able to come over and look at something for us? We have something going on with a series of outlets in the basement. If you plug a digital clock into any of these (I'm assuming they're all on the same circuit), the clock will run fast, picking up about 10 or 15 extra minutes each day. The same clock runs just fine on all other outlets in the house. So something is definitely off.
No hurry, but next time you have a chance to swing by, I'd love to have you take a look at it.
I told her I would be there in a couple days. In the meantime, stay out of the basement because her aging process would be accelerated.
