Thanks, Thief. My original plan was to buy a new laptop from some of my Medium riches, but we know how that turned out. It may simply need a tuneup, but the nearest repair shop is 30 miles
away and I haven't fEly like driving even that far. Getting old sucks .

I'm writing this in my doctors office waiting for him to come in. Back problems, sciatica and pain that keeps increasing. I hate that I'm getting so little done. I am too young to feel this old. TMI. for a subject you never even brought up. ;))

Later, and shorter.....

Writing on whatever strikes my mood, from politics to humor (or a combination of the two), to spirituality, or whatever else shows up. Retired, not in retreat.
