….that I don’t know a lot about the way a computer works. Most of the time, I just hope it does. And when it doesn’t, my first reaction is usually blind panic–my life is inside that machine!
Over the past three weeks I had to take the computer in to have a power source replaced…and I was without it for a week while the part was ordered, the Columbus Day holiday delayed receiving it, and finally, getting it back home. When I tried to access my blog, however, I found myself unable to access my dashboard functions, couldn’t write a new post. I was treated like any other visitor to my page and invited [via a blue-flag that popped up in the lower right corner] to become a follower. Not exactly what I was aiming for! Obviously, I overcame the obstacle. That I did so without having to call our local computer guru [again] is a source of some pride….although I did ask a trusted friend’s opinion. And….since I sort of blundered into the solution, it remains to be seen if I can duplicate my success. Stay tuned….
Meanwhile, I leave you with this image of a yard windmill, shot in September (this year) while visiting my sister in Cedarburg, WI, for their annual Wine and Harvest Festival. I have a small windmill in the yard here at home–this one was a monster! As was the price tag: $1,200, generously reduced to $500 in hopes of a quick sale. Assuming I’d wanted it badly enough to pay that amount, the next problem would have been getting it back to Iowa. I don’t think it would have fit in our Jeep!
I hope this latest post finds you all well, and busily perfecting your various crafts. I look forward to catching up!
