Life is improving slightly. The kitchen now has light, Susan's printer is temporarily happy, she has a new battery for her keyless car key, and my back is getting better. Some people have recommended a chiropractor but that's not my preference - accupuncture is, and that seemed to really help me so I'll stick with that (and massage). Different strokes for different folks.
I had to get a new keyboard for my computer. It was just my bad luck that I took Susan with me and just my worse bad luck that Fry's Electronics is located in the same shopping center as Harbor Freight, Half-Price Books, and Dollar Tree, some of our favorite stores. That turned out to be a three-hour trip.
How could we turn down Dollar Tree buttons like these? The classic question non-art people have about items like these is, "What do you plan to do with them?" The classic answer, said very innocently, after a long pause while looking intently at the items, is always, "Beats the hell out of me."
Susan adds: I have no idea why this video of "How To Make A Button" is so enchanting but it just is. She is so earnest about explaining it all that I want it to be true!
