i am getting this age bit down pat--- yesterday i decided not to go anywhere- giving me a chancew to tackle some very annoying problems.. name ly the TIME CLOCK
WEEKLY WE POUR OVER THE MASHED IN DATES AND TIMES ALL MUSHED TOGETHER IN TH MIDDLE OF THE TIME CARD- IMPOSSIBLE TO READ---I DIDN'T WAN T AN "OUTSIDE JOB" -- it was TOO HOT--- i decided time had come to fix teh time clock... mostly because .....
IT IS A/C IN HERE (THANKS TO WASHER'S PARTNER'S HUSBAND WITH THESE A/C HEAt exchanger things I DON'T UNDERSTAND) ..
i find fixing things has fallen into a perfect age related storm---
* get an idea
* take something all apart
* sit around lookng helpless
* til some younger brighter person comes along and fixes it for you...
in the case of the time clock- it was amy who could not resist the cahllange.. and immediately got into all the buttons like "change" and "set" and "laqnguage" ( english, spanish or portuguese???? an odd choice???) i was so impressed as she altered everything --- time date seconds and what country we were in-- both upside down and right side up.... amy was "very adept" with those buttons while i haD THE INTENSLY CRITICAL JOB OF HOLDING THE FLASHLIGHT----but she cdoudl not get it to move the print action to the correct place ON THE TIME CARD WHERE HOU COULD ACTUALLY READ IT..
TYPICAL OF " THESE YOUNGSTERS" SHE TURNED TO THE INTERNET AND SHE GOT OUT HER TRUSTY PHONE AND HAD TEH TROUBLE SHOOTING ANSWER BEFORE I HAD EVEN SOLVED THE PROBLEM OF THE PASSWORD TO MY PHONE. SO After all the analyzing the changing of teh settings bb aa dd -----IT SAID TO move the print head, turn the machine over and push the little white lever... .
i was ashaMED OF MYSELF FOR NOT TRYING THAT AN HOUR AGO... I WAS ALL SET TO BE CONFUSED BY THE WORDS LIKE "CHANGE... SETTINGS... SELECT AND SAVE" WHEN IN FACT THE SOLUTION WAS A MIKE ROWE KIND OF THING... LOOK IT OVER AND WIGGLE ANYTING THAT LOOKS WIGGLEABLE.
..---- THE COSTCO RUN...... IF THERE IS NO ONE TO GO WITH ME,, PAM IS INCLINED TO TAKE HEAVY THINGS OFF THE LIST-- LIKE ALL THOSE 3 BOX CONTAINERS OF CHLOROX.., OR 50 POUNDS OF RICE,-- YOU KNOW- HEAVY STUFF.. I KNOW THAT BY . STANDIN G NEXT TO SOMETHING HEAVY AND LOOKING OLD AND PATHETIC AND SOMEONE WILL HELP....
THAT IS WHERE IT GETS TOUCHY.. BECAUSE-- I AM VERY CAPABL;E OF SOLVING ALL THIS MYSELF-
THOSE BOXES OF 3 JUGS OF CHOLOROX CAN BE BROKEN AND LIFT JUST THE JUGS INTO THE CART PROBABLY 18 SECONDS MNORE TIME... ... THE 50 POUNDS OF RICE CAN BE BOUGHT IN 2 BAGS OF 25 POUNDS FOR 38 CENTS MORE. YEARS OF HAY BALES AND 40 POUND BAGS OF DOG FOOD HAVE MEANT.... I CAN LIFT PRETTY HEAVY THINGS... WHAT I CAN NOT DO IS WALK AROUND WITH THEM. I CAN PICK UP THE 50 POUNDS OF RICE, BUT IF THE CART MOVES 6 INCHES AWAY I CAN'T MANAGE THAT 6 INCH MOVE.
JUST STAND BY THE REAR OF MY CAR-- SOMEONE ALWAYS COMES ALONG TO HELP.. IT IS GETTING THE PATHETIC LOOK DOWN PAT WHICH IS TEH KEY TO GETTING HELP..
HERE'S TEH KICK...98.4% OF PEOPLE LOVE TO HELP - THEY LIFT AND THEN GO AWAY SMILING AS OPPOSED TO THE VERY FEW THAT DO NOT MAKE EYE CONTACT AND JUST SLITHER BY.
REMINDING ME OF THE GUY IN THE MENS ROOM WHO WALKED PAST JANINE AND I ON A TARP[, ON THE FLOOR IN THAT MENS ROOM CLIPPING FUZZ OFF THE REAR OF A SHEEP- HE WALKED BY TO AND FROM AND NEVER SMILED OR ACKNOWLEDGED OUR PRESENCE.**
HOW DEAD IS HIS HEAD? THERE ARE A FEW WHO JUST DO NOT PARTICIATE, RECOGNIZE, - OR HAVE ANY RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEIR COMMUNITY--- OR WORLD FOR THAT MATTER..
IT DOES GO Bck to individuals--- i notice from afar... someone will go get a can of soda from the fridge and turn to the group "anybody else need one ?" them is teh givers... they aint "takers."
a quick "goldie" for those of you who think " the ghost of the left hand drawer" does not exist..... janine was here 2 days ago carrying all her icecreaqm and frozen dinners because her fridge had just broken... she put it all in our fridge.... yesterday deb-- our neighbor called tehy had an extra fridge and freezer in the garage if i knew of anyone....... that is a goldie moment--- there must be 100 of them now...
** from the book about the start of sdp... dogs donkeys and circus on amazon. janine wrote it... funny book.. all stories are true-- except the boyfriends names... :)
