Happy Monday.

I’ve managed to go wireless on the key board and the mouse. There wasn’t much choice I’m afraid. The stores were about out of wired mice and key boards. I’ve reported on the Morse code emitting key board. Some time before Christmas if I recall correctly.

The puppy decided, Sunday afternoon, to play with all the wires behind the desk and pulled the tower computer off the three foot height book case shelf. The fall pulled most components along with the PC tower. My key board gave up the last vestiges of activity there after. The PC lives – unfortunately so does the puppy. The PC lost its top, which is a trick I’m sure it will never again perform.  So its wireless I go. Thank you, puppy.

The puppy’s trick was performed at the 9,000 word point of the current story and the ruddy thing froze the screen. I’m not sure how, or what, happened inside the programing of the PC, but it required a reboot and I had to run the diagnostics for Windows Seven. They told me Windows could do nothing for me; although it gave me three options. Try the repair program, notify Windows or turn everything off and then back on.

I tried the latter and sure enough it re-booted and my concern was the short story. That is where my personal Christmas miracle occurred. I found the story. Every word to the current incident. I cannot lay it at the doorstep of clean living. But thanks.

About tenwhiskey

User tenwhiskey is also the author of this blog. He currently lives in small town Kansas in a semi-retired condition. His kids are married and gone (thank you). An empty nester. Divorced. Very happy with life as it is. Ten Mile maintains a personal blog here, writing of events as they appear to him; commentary, and opinions abound. He deviates into fiction as the mood strikes and creates flash fiction stories and short stories. He will not warn the reader when he drifts from fact to fiction. He feels adults are, generally, smart enough to figure out which is which. He does, however, attempt to make his fiction sound as true to life as possible. You have been warned. He, as time permits, writes and occasionally sells writing. More often than not he gives it away to various non-paying publishers of Ether Magazines, forums or for entertainment on a wall for in need of a hand friends. He likes candy, pies and a certain amount of strife. In the matter of strife - in his yourth on the farm, he became embroiled in a slinging fight. The fight involved lath as a launcher, fresh cow patties as ammo and it was a six way free for all. A little mud only adds (Umm?) a certain taste to life.
