Did you know that problems are spring loaded? You know, like the old Pez candy dispensers that our parents use to have (wink)? Remember, you...er, they took out a piece of candy and the spring at the bottom pushed the next one up? Well, I here to tell you that the adage is correct. Problems are spring loaded.
I spent the last six or seven days connecting my newer computer and by George, I dood it. So, I noticed the other day my printer didn't print and when I checked the ink cartridge, it needed to be replaced, which I did, today. So, now my computer won't print. I know, I know, I checked the connections, ran the trouble shooter, looked for paper jams, nada, zero point shit, zilch, el zero!
So here I sit, making a late entry and thinking yesterday went so well! I saw my friends, picked up a couple of items at the Al Qaeda Seven-Eleven....I even bought a $2 scratch-off and won six dollars. Life is good...was good, yesterday. Today, the damned Pez dispenser of life kicked up a new candy. Back to square one.

That's it for today, my little Pez dispensers. More tomorrow.
