#SOLSC23: Patterns

Technology has definitely not been my friend lately with errors in Word Press and the printer refusing to scan the alignment page. Today, it was another machine.

I’m feeling a time crunch with a gift I am working on. No, not the grandson one. T’he celebration in April. I waited …. not very patiently as it seemed to be shipping from the moon. Self-pressure. I could revert back to the original plan, but I don’t want to … not YET!

But ….

Strike 1

Strike 2

And . . .

And Strike 3.

That would be an “out” in baseball.

In all three cases, the piece with the “woodgrainy” look, needs to be horizontal. It was a fairly quick fix for Jack. Jack the Ripper. A bit of time, three new blocks and it was time to have another go. The pieces were not hard to replace, just a bit time-consuming.

Another “go” today. Hopefully no errors this time.

When has time not “been on your side”? How did you handle “righting the errors”


Thank you, Two Writing Teachers, for this daily forum in March. Check out the writers and readers here.

  1. Hope it all goes well!!

  2. It happens. I hope things work out well.

  3. I really get this! Technology is usually the culprit that eats up precious time when technology should be saving me time. Other culprits are the Welsh Corgis who sometimes refuse to come in from the backyard on a fair-weather day when I am already a little late for an appointment or outing.

    1. Oh, my, I bet the Corgis exactly know which days are the shortest on time!

  4. Although the “fix” might be simple, it is frustrating when you have to do it. Good luck.

    1. Still working on it. Some days are just two steps backwards and only one forward!

  5. Your scrabble word message was perfect for your post!

    1. Thanks, I loved it as well!
