Hiya,

Getting my magic necklace next week. I'm happy my parents, 64 & 67 respectively will finally be able to do what they want, when they feel like it rather than structuring their entire lives around me/my wants – still very nervous though, you read so many bad reports of care homes.

Dad's just booked up for Steeleye Span next year for me. It's just a shame I/we have to wait 6mo. Who else is going ?? & Maddy's cd from her other tour's out soon. Not as soon as I'd like, of course, but at least it's coming out.

Usher's Well has arrived – for those who know, that's the reason I wanted a well ornament for the garden, & that's what we call it.

I was teary all morning, reading through the old 9/11 threads and watching coverage online, then I got my grandson, Morgan, this afternoon. He's going through an even sweeter than usual phase. I had to get up to go to the other room. He said, "Wait, Mama, I'll hold your hand and pull you there so you won't have to use your cane." (I've had a sore foot.) Just a little thing, maybe, but it meant the world to me, as does he.

Friends. I know - big deal, but it don't take much! Aside from the basic necessities of life, there isn't anything I can think of more important to me than friends and music.

I also got a weed eater/brush cutter yesterday, so once I put it together and buy gas, I can go find the ground surrounding my house.

Bruce, I forgot to send you the photo of which I was just reminded: 'Still Life with Underwear and Flyswatter' (Guy has a novel way of drying his unmentionables--not THOSE unmentionables but the ones you buy in a store.

Linn needs a Mac keyboard. Otherwise, I have a couple here she gave me that I'd happily give back. I think keyboards for Macs cost about $600.00, but I'm not sure.

Now if I could finish this stupid song, I'd be turning handsprings on the front lawn...

Today I solved a computer hassle that's been annoying and getting worse for the past several weeks. The mouse would go into squirrelly mode making it almost impossible to get anything done. Then it wouldn't move at all. Sometimes a reboot would help. Sometimes it made no difference at all.

Turned out to be the obvious -- my keyboard is partially fried. Other than one day last week when the whole keyboard refused to work for about a half hour, they keyboard part of the keyboard is currently working okay, but a mouse plugged into it works barely at all.

So...since I can't afford a replacement keyboard (G4 USB) right now, I've got pleas out to friends in hope someone has one in their pile of techno crap that I can use/barter for/promise money at a later date. My workaround is working but a bit awkward -- I've got my spare non-Apple mouse with the longer cord (operative term here is "longer cord") plugged into the hub (which is on the wrong side of the computer).

So that makes me happy, too -- a workaround that works!

I updated my resume this morning and will send it off to a staffing agency I've been working with right after I put the plaintext version together and make sure the line endings don't cause problems. That makes me feel better, too -- first step in the search for another job, one that will (unlike my current job) actually pay a living wage.

Oh! My first by-lined article in over 30 years is in NH To Do magazine -- on the stands today! It's not that I haven't been writing for the past 30 years, it's just that I've been anonymously keeping my clients from embarrassing themselves in print.

Took a breath this morning and realized that the festival was over and we did good. Jacqui and I enjoyed it thoroughly as did most of the performers. The audience was happy; the museum people are happy.

The only person who wasn't happy was the bride who tried to get us to pay for half of her wedding tent. She was told that her tent was in our way and we could insist that she take it down. LOL

So today I am celebrating good friends and good music and taking another deep breath.

Sinsull, Your ring story was great. I too had a ring I commissioned that had a dna twist on the main body and a full moon made of silver with a small creseant of platinum. The silver would slowly tarnish and make the moon look like it was going through its phases. Then I would polish it again.
I lost it in a location where several bad things happened like my car dying etc.   I don't go there anymore

Back in the 60s I had a silver M-ring - a Magician's Ring - which I loved and wore all the time. As I got older (and presumably more sophisticated) I put it away until it resurfaced many years later. My son, an amateur magician, coveted it and so I gave it to him. True to form, he lost it.
So for about 20 years I have been haunting silver jewelry stalls at fairs and silver jewelry shops in various towns. I have contacted Magician suppliers and even tried to make one myself. I have shown the design to many silversmiths but no one had the time to make a single ring.
About a month ago I discovered a place that carried the ring - SOLD OUT! Every day I check their website and am disappointed. Still OUT OF STOCK.
Today, they had it and I ordered it - the last one! Now I can't wait until it is delivered. I am so happy. It is rare that I want jewelry. A painfully simple silver ring but I am very happy.
