TESTING 123 TESTING
Morning folks. Well, here I am on the maiden flight with the new 'puter. It's taken me a while to get this far because this mouse pad is so sensitive that I keep messing up. I've got a spare optical mouse here, still in the box, and I think I'll use it while I get used to this #$% thing.
The young fellow (19 yrs old) I hired to set it up was a marvel to watch. So very talented, especially when I learned that he is mostly self-taught. Also a nice young man that I had to insist that he be paid for all of the time he was here (3 hrs). When we finally finished and I paid him he was still doing things, so I told jokingly told him to leave or I'd toss his butt out the door, without opening it. Suffice it to say that we got along great.
I'm having him back today to show me how to record over pictures. See what you've started Jude? Oh, by the way, I'll pay him for that and send you the bill, along with administration fees, carrying charges, interest, etc. Oh hell, just send me all your money and I'll call it square.
I'm still not confident enough yet to post a picture, but that will come. I leave 4 weeks from today, so I've got lots of time to practice, because if I'm going to post from the road, and I am, I want to do it right.
I may have to see an optometrist today, because after reading this it seems I have an "I" problem. Damn it man, find something else to natter about. (Oh, bite me!) As my Dad used to say, "If you don't like my gait, don't swing on it".
The above is the result of my being up 22 hrs yesterday, having 4 hrs sleep, then back at this thing. Can you say obsessive compulsive? I can, except that I pronounce it "anal". Don't try to make any sense out of this, because I'm fried.
I'll see those of you that I have'nt completely alienated later. Have as good a day as you feel you deserve. (No cheating!)
P.S. This is the last time I'm going to edit to get the paragraph breaks in. Must be Blogger, because I don't know what I'm doing differently. Here goes.
