We’re baaaack….

Dear me, photos are urging enough to get to walking and drop a few pounds.

We are safe and well. We went from Spokane to Buffalo WY (where new pet policies at our hotel (15.00 a head) make it certain we will use another routing)—then on to Sioux Falls SD, where we stayed the night, […]

Back’s been killing me. I got a new chair…

with lumbar support. And I’ve got a real find, a ‘laptop cart’ from Office Depot, rolls right up to the chair at the right height, and better yet, the top can lift off and become a lapdesk. Best little laptop support going. laptop cart

Did I mention bashing myself in the eye?

Bent over to get something from my purse, hanging on the coat tree…bam! right into one of the metal arms. That hurt. A lot. I don’t quite have a shiner, but I do have a very red eye.

The hard drive crashed. Bigtime. No warning.

After nearly six years Jane and I treated ourselves to some repair. I now have my rings wearable again, […]

Worked ourselves to exhaustion: I cooked a special dinner…

And just as we sat down, we saw a huge puddle coming from under the entertainment unit, emanating from the freshwater fish tank in the corner, and soaking our new living room floor.

We mopped, we moved things, we fixed stuff, we swore in ways Bet Yeager would approve, and we put a fan on […]

Kobo glitch now fixed.

Had the word from DAW.

Good news on Kepler glitch.

Glitch unglitched, apparently. Huge sigh of relief.

Kobo glitch to be fixed.

DAW is aware and working on it. They think it’s a code missing in something.
