Back in the chair, Bessie Anne and Celeste took their self-assigned positions. Who is warming whom here?
Biting the bullet, I called computer support in the afternoon. I'm old school when it comes to computers. I go back as far as COBOL and FORTRAN and learned DOS. I became administrator of a complex UNIX system. I'm not computer illiterate, but Windows and the mouse are unfamiliar territory to me. I knew it would be an easy fix for Celeste's faux paw (pun intended); I just didn't know how to do it. Sixty dollars and TWO KEYSTROKES (yes, I'm shouting!) later, my computer is back to normal and I'm a penniless happy camper.
Another log on the fire and cat and dog on my lap once more. As I've said, it was a good day.
