IT ONLY TAKES A MINUTE ....
One system (Windows) shutting down your PC to "protect it from further damage" with one blue error screen, you soon realize just how much of an online life you had - because it's now on HOLD! Yeesh.
I CAN'T VISIT YOU AND LORD HOW I WANT TO!!! WHAT ARE YOU UP TO? I'd so love to know .....
But here I am at the library terminal, one of 25 to be used by the 100 people waiting for one. Finally, it's my turn and after checking mail, I came directly to my Land of J.
~~~~~~~~~~ * ~~~~~~~~~~ * ~~~~~~~
Just a few things I got all mixed up as a kid:
"It's a dog-eat-dog world" .... came out by me as:
"It's a doggie dog world."
"The short end of the stick" ... came out by me as:
(Well I couldn't FIND the short end of a stick, no less knew why it was bad luck. So I said:)
"The sticky end of the shorts." (Now that's bad luck!)
"Everything but the kitchen sink" ... came out by me as:
"Everything but the chicken's ink."
"Liar, liar, pants on fire" ... came out by me as:
"Lie a lie, your pants expire."
Now that I've revealed my childhood idiocy, the knucklehead I once was and may still be, let me relate a wonderful story about 3 little puppies. They were born missing their front legs, no paws, dragging their little torsos on the ground. It broke someone's heart enough that this kind soul got to work. He made these little "half skateboard" wheelies and strapped them around the pups front where their legs would've (should've) been. NOW these guys go zipping around the neighborhood like the happiest cutest most "doggie dog" pals around. Doesn't that get you???
Speaking of which, they're getting to me here, the head muckety-muck is on her way directly toward me - time to get off this terminal. PLEASE FORGIVE MY ABSENCE FROM YOUR DELIGHTFUL JOURNALS!! I miss you all, want so badly to read what you've been doing, and intend to when that PC is well. Hopefully hopefully soon.
