Yes, at long last the Centurytel techs found the right cables to replace in order to get our connection working again out here in the boonies. It went out Sunday night at some point between 4 and 8 p.m. and it’s been a long stretch without it. I have loads of emails, lots of catching up to do on comments. I glanced over a few of them and let me assure you all I missed you just as much as you may have missed me. You’ve become an important part of my life over the last three months.
If they hadn’t gotten the cable repaired by early this afternoon, I was seriously thinking of heading to town later to borrow Benny’s work wi-fi and an empty office space and try to “reach out and touch someone” as the old telephone company commercial jingle said. With the price of gasoline and my back still troubling me from Monday night’s excursion to the Photoshop class (had one of those long, sleepless nights after that), I am so very glad to see all those connection bars without a big red “x” over them. Well, that and the simple fact I was going slightly nuts without my email and Internet.
I’ve done a lot more playing with Photoshop, trying a few new things with mixed results. I am wondering if I may have to switch to having the mouse in my left hand for more precise use of some of the editing tools. In the meantime, here’s some of my newest stuff. My gosh, but that Richard Armitage is a fine-looking man!
