Aw, gee, cut it out!
I seem to be the victim of a vengeful HP. First, I was scrupulous in putting out my trash bins (I just paid that freakiin' garbage company their exorbitant fee, which other old folks, who live the CITY, get for 1/3 the cost), and they skipped my yard waste can. Really indignant here. I need it empty! I am planning on major yard work this week! Then, my new phone, the one I just love and adore, locked itself up and refuses to unlock. This means a trip to Best Buy to bother those sweet guys in the cellphone area, again. Nuts. And, after enduring many months of very irritating reminders that popped up EVERYWHERE, I finally renewed my RegCure license (they had a sale of RegCure Pro, real deal), and it refuses to load on my computer. Now have to call them and trudge through a plethora of steps so I can correct all those errors on my disk that the now defunct program said I had. Give me a break. And my new camera, a Samsung, like my phone, came with the manual on a disk, and needs Adobe Reader to decode, and that is not working, either. I think the technology fairy has taken a dump here in the little yellow house. So I said hell with it, and painted for a while. Not sure I like him, but he was fun to diddle with for an afternoon. He will wind up in the pile soon, the one I keep for paintings that I need to review before I finish them. My mentor calls that the "second easel". I just call it the pile. Tomorrow will be another day. Maybe I will get my phone back. Maybe the bin will be emptied. I don't know. It's always a surprise.
