Contortionists


Just made this collage for mail art project in Bexleyheath of all places. This morning we had to wait in for the PC chap to come again and fix the PC which he mended (new motherboard and processor ) but we had trouble loading games and there was no sound. So luckily after an hour and half of muttering and tweaking he got it right again ( touch wood ) and so Archie will be glued to Roller Coaster Tycoon for the next few days i expect. Sadly we have lost a bundle of stuff that was on the hard drive which was like "mashed potato " apparently so will have to aquire them as and when we need them.
Afterwards we went to town with Audrey and narrowly missed being hit by a lunatic who bounced of the kerb and lurched towards us giving us a fright! The library sale was still on so got two more CD's - Sophie Tucker and Al Jolson. The "Help The Aged" had a sale on- fill a bag for a pound! The shop was packed full of people stuffing clothes and books into bags. We managed to fill three between us. Got Archie some guitar tutor CD's and a Beano mini-comic amongst other things.
Its the school open evening tonight and Archie has been asked to go and play his guitar in the music block. He was only too happy to oblige.

it's awful when computer's die. Like a death in the family. My backing up practice is still negligent, in spite of losing stuff that way.

No , I don't back up files either despite having an external hard- drive which is in a drawer somewhere.

I've got floppy discs of all sorts of info from previous computers... letters, business stuff...
but who can access a floppy disc these days ??? You'd need a functional antique !!!
