Well, if this hasn't been something. I was writing away on my previous post and all of a sudden my screen went completely white. Very scary. Whenever anything weird happens I yell for Dick, and he came running. The upshot of the whole thing is that our aol is not working properly and I was just sick because I thought I had lost the whole thing. He sat down at this computer and has been working for the past hour trying to save what I had written and get things working again. He finally did save it on to our word perfect. At first we couldn't get it pasted back on to this because every time he would try it would come up "Error 400" When he went on to look at Error 400, he found many places to get it fixed and he was afraid to even try one because he was afraid it might be a virus. I can't really explain it all because I am not smart enough to really understand myself, but anyway the end result is that he was able to get it on through Internet Explorer. I don't know what happened to aol but am not going to worry this any more. Funny, I was in the middle of a sentence when it happened. I finished it and then went ahead and posted it really thinking it might not post, because we had tried many times before and it wouldn't post, but it did . I was pretty shocked and upset that I hadn't even had a chance to edit it. I do make errors when I type so fast. Oh well. Now I am just going to try to write the last paragraph I had written on the end, which never did get saved.
Last paragraph, here goes:
A strange thing happened to me ealier today. I got scammed by a telephone call. At least the guy TRIED to scam me. He had me convinced at first that it was my grandson, Todd. I started to think maybe it wasn't him, even before he tried to get me to wire him money to fix a rental car in Madrid Spain, if you can imagine. I knew that Todd was taking finals so I didn't think he would be in Spain. These things happen all the time and I had read about these guys that try to scam Grandparents into sending money, usually out of the country. He finally hung up when I refused to send him money. Crazy day, all in all and I won't be sorry when it is over.
Sorry about not being able to edit prior post today. I think once a week is about all I can take. I don't know why but things happen to me when I try to post anymore.
