OK, you know what they say, third time's the charm.......this is the third attempt to post this entry. I screwed up twice because I'm on the Creeches' computer. Even though it's a Mac, and I have an iMac, Alan's got OSX, which operates a little differently from my OS9 setup. The reason I'm doing this here instead of blogging from home is that I came home Friday to discover that my telephone line has been "temporarily disconnected." This is Alltel's way of saying, "Pay up or no more access for you, little missy!" I, of course, knew that I was behind in paying the phone bill, so I don't really blame Alltel for cutting me off, but funds have been extremely scarce this summer, and I figured the car was more important than the phone. I have tried to negotiate with Alltel to make a partial payment, but was told that that was not acceptable. I hate having to pick and choose which bills to pay. I want to pay every bill as soon as it arrives, but I haven't been able to do that for a couple of years now. I'm mainly saying all this to let everyone know that it may be a while before the next entry and why. Also, if you email me, it may take a while before I receive it and answer it. I can pick up email and blog from the Creech house (they are very cool to let me do this), but I don't plan to be stopping in on them every night. That would be just rude. Anyway, as I said, this is just to let everyone know that if you don't hear from me for a while, I haven't dropped off the face of the earth.
