Adding a sentence to the top of this post. That's Rebecca with the cats, not Elcie. Confusing because I started off by talking about Elcie.
Elcie says the kitten's name is Princess but to me she's another Dipstick. About the same level of intelligence but a little more lively. Dipstick I has become a speed bump lately. Or a doorstop. He and Fidget keep sneaking into the car. I discovered Fidget when I stopped at the bank a couple of weeks ago. He thinks he's a dog.
Today was much better than yesterday. (Still Thursday even though title says Friday). Headache still gone.
Rebecca, Rochelle, and I did a couple of errands and picked up their Uncle Tim for lunch at Long John Silver's. Brought home fish for Ray and Elcie who suddenly decided she didn't like fish. Too bad. Hungry Elcie until she found something she would eat. She was just bent out of shape because it wasn't McDonalds and she'll get over it. And if she had gone with us in the first place she could have chosen her own lunch (at Long Johns - they have chicken as well).
Later on he came over and fixed my printer somewhat. (He unplugged it and plugged it back in to a different port - genius). I may have to replace it - the paper feed isn't working. Anyone have any ideas about a Lexmark? We have to push the paper one sheet at a time until it catches. No problem now but it will be when the girls go back to school. I've been trying to justify buying a combination printer/scanner/fax if I can find one on sale that will do what I want as simply as possible. I've always had some problems with the printer and scanner speaking to each other. Sometimes they do and sometimes they sulk.
Rebecca managed to open the car door too quickly somehow and ran it into her nose and mouth. No damage to her nose but she cut the inside of her upper lip and it'll be sore for a couple of days. We applied ice inside a wet washcloth quickly so maybe it won't be too bad tomorrow. Poor kid. She moves too quickly sometimes with disastrous results.
Right now she's decorating a small cabinet we picked up at a yard sale some time ago. It's just sat around waiting for a proper home. It's now covered with stickers and shiny beads. It helped take her mind off her woes.
We bought some ice cream, the cure for everything including a fat lip. Even Elcie ate that. Denali is a Savemart brand and it's not bad. Has flavors like Caribou something or other and Moose Tracks. They make an good cherry chocolate chip. We bought that, some type of carmel, and mint chocolate chip (for Rebecca - she's the mint person). Ray and I will have some of the cherry and carmel later because I don't expect it to be here tomorrow.
Here's a tip for Blogger folk. It took me months before I knew that I could click on my username in the email copy of a comment and it would take me to the specific post. I'd been searching through post after post until then.
Another friend mentioned in an email today that she was having problems tracking comments back to the posts. I told her about my magic cure and then thought someone else might not know either. Now everyone reading this does - if you didn't already.
I'm catching up on reading posts somewhat and on adding to the blogroll. If you don't see your name, let me know. Unless it becomes totally unmanageable, if you visit and you're not a troll or a spammer, you go on the blogroll. (On the other hand, if you're there and would rather not be, let me know.) We aim to please.
Thanks to all for the comments and good wishes; especially those I haven't replied to personally.
Take care everyone.
