There is an evil and sneaky key on my laptop that when even lightly tapped will cause everything I have written to instantly disappear and never to return again. I have never been able to catch it in the act because it always happens when my attention is on the screen, on my notes, or glancing at something on the television. I sure wish I knew which key it is so I could tape over it or mark it in such a way as to alert me if I am drawing near. If anyone else has this problem, please advise. I would hate to think it is exclusive to my laptop, my home, or heaven forbid, a problem with the operator.
Look what happened to my Mama's cat eye glasses when I tried to wash them. They must have been held together with dust and grime because they began to completely disintegrate when the cloth and water touched them. The rhinestones on the frames and the rims rising into an upward peak on the edges were very fashionable in her day...not so much so in mine. You probably cannot tell in the picture but the lens were tinted like sunglasses. They did not tint glasses then like they do now. Hers were discolored by the nicotine from her cigarettes. Although I hated that cigarette smoke then, I now feel it was just Mama.
By the way, a future post of mine will be about home remedies. The first one to be mentioned will be how my parents blew cigarette smoke into my ear to soothe an earache. I think nowadays we realize second hand cigarette smoke is a frequent cause of upper respiratory problems in children. Oh well, water under the bridge now.
