Nothing funny today, folks

Okay, it rarely happens, but this is one of those times. Anyway, sorry folks, but there is absolutely nothing funny happening in the world today. Makes it hard if you’re supposed to be writing a column that attempts at humor.

Don’t touch that dial!

I remember it like it was yesterday. Well, it was almost yesterday – more like a couple of days ago. I was here at my computer. Alice was in the living room, but the computer room door was open, and I could hear her solving the puzzles on “Wheel of Fortune.” More about that later.

I came in from a beautiful day in the 70s (F.) on Monday, and sat down at my computer. It didn’t take me long to be reminded that this time last year, it wasn’t much different, maybe a little cooler. However, on that particular day a year earlier than that, I was bewailing the loss of my ice scraper.
