Default Off Planet

Well, it felt like being off planet, anyway. And it wasn't my antique compy that was at fault! Over the past couple of weeks my phone service has been, well, let's call it intermittent until, last week, it didn't work at all. At last I now have a new phone line and hopes of staying connected. It's been pretty strange, living in a very rural location with no contact whatever with the outside world. I can't stay online long right now but I will soon be able to read and post to my hearts content!

Sandi....So very glad to have you back again...and very happy to hear that it was only a faulty phone line that was causing you problems this time. I was really starting to worry that it was finally the end of your Old compie.

Thanks, y'all. Funny thing is my compy seems to be working better now, too. I suspect that line had been going dodgy longer than I'd realized.
