I bought a new computer a short while ago. It is lovely and I like it a lot. The devices I need to hook it up to, however, seem to be a little surly. Or is it the other way around?
Do my old devices not like this fresh-faced interloper and its new ways of doing things? Or does my fancy new laptop think it is too good for all of my old electro-mechanical friends? Between recalcitrant software, a difficult scanner and networking issues it has been a rather difficult week and nobody is speaking to each other. Electronically, anyway.
I had hoped to get these issues sorted out in time to bang out the kind of original content you are used to seeing here. But . . . yeah.
I am sorry that my world travels have gotten in the way of my blogging. I have been to India at least three times today alone. I think I was in New Jersey for a bit as well. The kinds of trips you take for telephone tech support, anyhow. The food and the scenery are not as good with this kind of trip, but there is at least no jet lag.
Fortunately I finished a piece over on Curbside Classic for this week on a delightful 1957 Ford Thunderbird that I stumbled across one recent evening. In addition to giving you a little backstory on the car’s development I conclude that it is the most perfectly styled car of its decade. Perhaps you will agree? Not everyone over there does, so I guess I failed at staying away from controversial subjects.
I normally give you all first priority when time gets tight, but the best laid plans and all . . .
Anyhow, I hope you click on the link and jump over to CC for a chance to luxuriate over one of the most beloved cars of its decade, and one that turned out to be quite important in ways that nobody really understood then.
So now I have some counseling sessions to attend in an effort to build a little teamwork among my gadgets. The therapist will soon be calling. From India. Cheers.
