Fun With Ducks…….

Fun With Ducks…….

Right now…..I should be doing paperwork to renew my National Athletic Training license before December 31st……. Procrastinate much?????????? But honestly…….I’ve been attempting to do that all day long…….with very little success……. I’ve put out a loud/pathetic wail to my older daughter to help me with all of this necessary cyber-garbage……. …….I’ve got scraps of paper and xeroxed certificates floating all over this house…….and if DaVinci pee’d on them sometime throughout the year…….who knows what I did with them…….?… …..I sure…

My computer is back… Now I don’t have to use my daughter’s iPad anymore…….that touch-screen was brutal….. …..while I was trying to touch the one-dimensional letters with my fingertips, I was inadvertently dragging my knuckles on the screen too….. …..my over-sized finger-joints were very busy….. …..I’m closer to a knuckle-dragging ape than I ever realized… …..while I was “touch-typing” with my fingertips…..my knobbly joints were simultaneously deleting whole paragraphs while changing back and forth from Pinterest, to News platforms, and…

~~~Sick Ram~~~

  I am on my younger daughter’s iPad, typing on a touch screen……. …..this is going swimmingly…………..HA! My computer died suddenly… I had to take it to the Apple Store for diagnostics……. …..on the eve of the “roll-out” of their new, next, bestest phone… They said not to hold my breath for a quick turn around……. …..sigh… …..my poor baby had to be sent to Kentucky for repairs….. …..”kernel panic” was mentioned…….(?)… …..all the Genius Bar people shook their heads…

Neither Snow, Nor Rain, Nor Gloom of Night………

  Well that might be the beginning of the U.S. Postal Service’s creed… However I’m here to say, that a speeding/weaving pick-up truck can really put a dent in the U.S.P.S. motto…………..and our mailbox. But we got it all on surveillance camera video……………heh;  heh;  heh…………….(before the poor thing was annihilated). (I don’t like surveillance, it flies in the face of a lot of my innate/organic philosophies on life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness…) (But recently it appears that some…

Cat Catastrophe Contained

Cat Catastrophe Contained

I just got my recharger-cord-thingie in the mail. The scraps of the torn, padded envelope still litter the kitchen floor. The cats are already plotting their next attack. My older daughter has given me a protective case for my computer and its new, pristine recharger-cord. Tonight I’m camouflaging my computer in its new case on the cookbook shelves in the kitchen.  It should look like a fake cookbook on the shelf.     Take That, Cats!!!        …

The Cat Conspiracy

The Cat Conspiracy

    I have to type quickly.       I’m running out of computer juice. My cats have conspired against me and chewed through my computer’s recharging cord.   I have to Amazon-Prime a new one………………… I have Amazon-Primed a new one……………………         Pascal, please bear with me………………….(remember Pascal?   I named that cloud-thingie that I blog to Pascal—————he’s my friend). I’d like to say this hasn’t happened before……………………………………………………but…              

New Computer!!!

New Computer!!!

  Well, I was successful in whining adequately. I now have a new, shiny computer………………. It’s one of those interest-free deals where you better pay it off in monthly integrals or else they wallop you with all of the interest you missed for the past twelve months in one fell-swoop at the end (if you don’t keep up your end of the bargain). All I’ve got to do is divide the total bill by twelve and that’s what needs to…

Ex-Computer

I am sitting here with an i-Pad Mini with a multiply-fractured screen (I didn’t do it)…………. The minuscule mini has been taped to this little, itty-bitty keyboard (I didn’t do that either)…………………I think they (my children) did it to keep me safe…………………kind of like computer-training wheels……………….or maybe like my own-cyber-sippy-cup…………… I have to use a stylus to move around from place to place……….I’ve been told by the same children that I have fat fingers that don’t work on computer-screens. I…

World Perspective

World Perspective

Over the years I’ve become more open-minded while at the same time more intolerant……………………….if that is even possible. As I’ve mentioned before, my husband is a Londoner.  I am from rural Ohio.  We’ve grown, coped, & grappled with a lot of differences over the years.  His upbringing and mine are so totally different.  He even lived in Italy for the first few years of his life and spoke Italian as a toddler for his first language. He can read train…

Steam & Hot Air —– Turbine Force

Steam & Hot Air —– Turbine Force

My thought process needs pruning. It’s something that I should work on.  My thought “flow” is more like our “sheeting swamp” in the back pasture and less like the determined, directed flow of the mighty Mississippi from the top of the map to where it drains at the bottom. My thoughts are constantly hiccuping and gaging.  They meander, and then get hypoxia & lost and then find their way back home again along with the high-tide debris that my ideas…
