no 's

It is somewhat mortifying to try and write a b og without that etter that comes between k and m. I have been on the phone with over the ast few days, more hours than I have taught in the ast 2 years. et's see - how much is my time worth of being on ho d? Network prob ems previous y - but today, my keyboard (as you might have guessed) is giving me prob ems. No L's, un ess I hit the etter umpteen thousand times. No thank you. My 4th finger on the right hand is getting repetitive motion syndrome. So, you can either strugg e through this, as I am doing, or give up, as I am about to do.. They say they wi have a keyboard to me tomorrow or Friday - but I am not ho ding my breath. In the meantime, since I can't write on my aptop, I have to stay home. I stopped at the studio tonight and picked up a bunch of fabric that I need to work on - so I wi do it at home. Enough of this torture.

Once you get past the first two sentences it's actually pretty easy to read! Very funny!

(from my desktop computer) I have to say that Dell's customer service has improved. The tech will be here this afternoon to replace the keyboard on my laptop.
Meantime, I am home. My car is in the shop to the tune of $$$$ - it's just one of those weeks.

While you're waiting for your keyboard and car, pick up a copy of "Ella Minnow Pea" by Mark Dunn. It's a cautionary tale about letters of the alphabet being taken out of use and how people coped with their absence. You'll be ab e to re ate!

I was laughing at your entry in the presence of DS1 and computer geek that he is, he suggested using a keyboard that comes up on your screen... not sure how that works, he muttered something about it being in the control panel... being a teenager he only offers vague grunts now and again...

ahhh, so it was you who posted that anonymous message last night on my blog!! At the time I couldn't recognize you, but now I see a distinct familiarity in the penmanship! LOL
Poor you. As frustrated as you must be, you still keep plugging along!

My N was missing last week. I just turned the keyboard upside down and banged it a couple of times. I felt better and the N actually began to work again.
Hmm. Musta been a crumb in there.

Rayna, I just went to your BLOG after reading your post on the Janome forum. I had to laugh at your missing "Ls". When I first got my Microsoft ergonomic keyboard, I had to do that with the letter "O." It was so funny when I wrote an unedited note to the people I bought it from (online), with the Os missing. They were Johnny-on-the-spot about getting me a replacement keyboard.

Anyway, I love your work, and hope I can take a class from you someday. I live in a suburb of Seattle, but my daughter just moved to Shelton, CT, so I know I will be on the east coast a lot in the years to come. We lived in Massachusetts for a couple years a long time ago, so I am familiar with how close everything is to everything else back there.

Hope to see a lot from you on the Janome forum.
