What a shock I had this week when my practically new computer (built in 1984) conked out on me.

I then turned to my trusty electric typewriter, (Probably built by Ben Franklin), I turned it on and it nearly blasted me out of the room. My neighbors are probably still wondering what that terrible noise was.

So friends, don't expect much from me very soon. My handwriting isn't what it used to be and neither is my brain.
