A Month Off, The 4th, A Call From The Vet, And Mistaken Identity…

How did your 4th of July go? (For my American readers). Things went great here–grilling, corn on the cob, sun, getting gifted a couch (not kidding on that last one).

I know you haven’t seen me post for a while, and there’s a good reason. I’d run into some problems with my WordPress dashboard when I was running Google Chrome and couldn’t get in to see my blog, let alone post.

I’d found a workaround, but then for some reason, that shortcut stopped working.

And then things got really weird, the posting box would jump around, and other crazy stuff.

Between sitting down to try to solve the problem for good, writing some emails for a client, and getting an editing gig plopped in my (virtual) lap, things got pushed to the back burner (that’s bad for personal projects, no matter what they are).

But I’m here now. And accessing my dashboard with no problems on Firefox (something Internet Explorer was having trouble with, too).

I’d like to thank WordPress for their blogging platform. Honestly. It’s done me well for about 8 months now, with no major hiccups. And I’m glad to have it available. Things have come along that I don’t personally know how to fix, is all.

Okay, that’s enough of that.

And by the way, the new-to-us couch is super-great, and it’s got two recliners–one on each end. Had to get rid of a leathery love-seat and a broken red recliner to make room.

Which leads me to a strange call I got from a vet the other day…

(The animal-care kind, not the military-service kind)…

A receptionist called here, wanting to confirm an appointment for a checkup for two dogs.

Which would be great, except…

We don’t have a dog. Not even one.

Apparently the guy before me, who had the phone number we now have, DID have two dogs.

So I called up the place, and told the vet folks that whoever that guy was didn’t have the phone number anymore.

That’s the way things are with writing, life, and everything else. Sometimes the only solution is to just deal with things–somehow, some way.

Like strange calls about dogs you don’t own…

Plots that don’t work out, consultations that go flat after a few minutes…

Or unexpected free couches.

Have a great rest of your day.

Until next time,
