My friend Felix has had his surgery and apparently the El Salvadoran doctors did not kill him as I received a text from him today: “Hola, Susie. See you Sunday.” I had texted him twice over the past few weeks and got no response until now, so my mind was starting to go places it shouldn’t.
How spoiled I am. I type a few words into a piece of plastic in my hand and become impatient when I don’t see words on it from a person over 1,300 miles away. And I’m someone who remembers using a party line like it was yesterday.
Granny, git yer gun!
Tomorrow I finally go for my gun orientation and safety lesson. It’s two hours, one-on-one. Be sure to check back here tomorrow to see if I made a fool out of myself.
Poof! There goes another comment into nothingness!
If you read my message attached to yesterday’s post, you know I’m aware that the redesigned reply box has some problems. You may have tried to post a comment yesterday or today and it did not appear. I want you to know I didn’t censor it. I apologize if you went to the trouble of typing a message only to have it disappear.
You have to scroll down quite a bit to find the Post Comment button. It is white to camouflage it against the white background of this blog. You may have to click on it more than once. You can ignore the twitter, facebook, and guest buttons. WordPress has been notified of these problems and hard-working WordPress bloggers are hopeful they will be fixed (not the bloggers, silly, the problems!).
You know how you don’t appreciate something until it’s gone?
That’s the way I felt when I had zero comments to my blog for HOURS. I realize now that I’ve become accustomed to your feedback and friendliness. No, it’s more that that. I NEED your comments. I’m ready to admit that I’ve devolved into a total comments-addict. I can’t seem to get enough and I’m powerless to change.
