When It Rains . . .

Well, I guess this was coming . . .

The good;

I had taken a bit of advice from The Silver Coyote and started on a Chondroitin and Glucosamine regimen. Well, It actually did help things! My paws don't ache on a cold morning and my knees don't sound like Rice Crispies when I stand up. Thanks for the tip, SC!

The bad;

I am losing either the display inverter or the back light bulb for my trusty Dell Inspiron 1501. It's okay for a bit, then it just blacks out. I'm running it right now with a monitor backup, waiting until the screen blanks again. If I can shine a light on the screen and see images on it, the back light is bad. If it's entirely black, that would be the inverter. Just waiting now.

Anyway, still plugging away at chapter 15, some fun stuff happens in this one so maybe I'll have it hammered out soon. On a sour note, I've been called for jury duty again. No surprise, it's been thirteen months. Summons was right on time. Random selection my @$$!

Sorry for the rant.
