I think I’m going through a purple phase right now. The socks I just finished are purple-blue; this pair is redder purple; my current spinning is purple too with orange and bronze highlights. I’m currently wearing a red-purple long-sleeved t-shirt with a purple cotton cardigan over it. Hmmm…I see a theme. Maybe it’s the foggy weather? I’ve been listening to the ships in the harbour complaining about it.
Speaking of spinning, I finally took Tori out of her backpack and took a look. Almost 2 weeks ago I took her to my spinning class and when I got in my ride’s car afterward I dropped my pack out onto the curb. I’ve been afraid to look ever since. I guess Louet should have thought about putting at least a little padding in the pack because now poor Tori has a deep ding in the top of her upright. There is nothing between this part and the hard cement except a single layer of nylon fabric. Ouchie. I feel kind of like when you buy a new car and get the first dent or scratch on it. Life’s not perfect. I’ll get over it. Tori will get a little wood filler.
Further thoughts on file storage: In a comment from Silk (yes, I remember who you are!) she suggests a Zip drive to solve my backup problems. Well hon’, that used to work in the Old Days. I’ve had a 100 mb Zippy (that’s his name) for many years but now the disks don’t hold a fraction of what I need them to hold! Plus they are slowwwwwww and I only have just so many of the zip disks. They used to be around $13 EACH! Can you even get them anymore? A re-writable DVD which costs about a buck and a half holds 47 times as much and it takes 4 or 5 of them just to back up my critical stuff. You do the math. Guess I collect files like I collect books and magazines — too many! That’s why I want a portable hard drive that can be a complete copy of my computer’s hard drive, just in case. It’s really cheap insurance if you think about it.
Just for fun:
