|My trip to New York City 1958|
Thank you folks! I finally achieved my goal of 100 followers. I was stuck on 99 for so long I was beginning to wonder if I was actually getting "out there." And yes, I do need to have verification that you all are reading my blog. I appreciate all of you!
Well, this morning has been rather busy. I just got off the phone with Apple Support. My iMac has been getting hung up the past week or so. This morning while I was patiently waiting for the rainbow spinning wheel to finish doing it's thing, I got the Blue Screen of Death. Hey, what's that? I thought the Blue Screen of Death only showed up on Windows based computers. So I put a call into Apple Support. Since my maintenance contract is up with Apple, I now pay $19.00 per incident charge, good for thirty days, which is a good deal for me. I get to talk to someone who speaks English as his (or her) first language and actually listens to me instead of reading from a script. Without boring you with the details, I think we solved the problem. It was an errant 2.4 GB disk that was hanging in iPhoto waiting to be copied to a DVD. Some long ago DVD copying of an old family reunion that I was doing for my relatives. I'm not copying any more reunion DVD's because of all the ones I copies, not once did I receive a "thank you". A little "thank you" goes a long way. All too often one is taken for granted and rarely receives a "thank you." What's with that anyway?
The Photo of the Day at the top of this posting (which has nothing to do with this posting) is one I took of New York City. I won a free trip to New York when I was fifteen years old. I was a paper boy and the Philadelphia Bulletin had a contest to see who could get the most new subscriptions. Born salesman that I am (not), I won. I took my Kodak Brownie camera with me and took a roll (eight photos) of New York. I never thought to have a picture taken of myself or the other paper boys who won the contest. What was I thinking? I'll tell you what I was thinking, I was just too damn shy to ask. Not now though. If you know me I'm always asking "Here, take a photo of ME!"
Time to end this rambling missive that I'm going to pass off as a thoughtful blog post and get ready for work at the hotel. Lunch, nap, shower and then off to Expensive Botique Hotel in Lower Slower. Tomorrow at 8:15 AM I have my stress test. I think everyday I have a stress test.
The photo below? Taken of me when I was 16 years old by one of my brothers. I wanted some photos to share with my 67 pen pals. Pen pals, how I stayed in contact with my world wide fan club before the Internet and blogging.
It's all good folks! Have a great day!
