It was one of those days where I had nothing to do at work. Now that is a golden opportunity to whip something up to blog about – but I couldn’t think of anything for that either. It doesn’t really work when you just sit there waiting for inspiration to strike. *sigh* It doesn’t.

Details, details. I’ve never been detail oriented. Ron was always good at that and he was the one who took care of all that kind of stuff.
And then of course there is the whole laptop computer thing. I’d love to be able to blog from
