I Wish I Could........

I wish I could......

publish my post about a typical meal around the table as a child

describe my childhood home as the first "Stories From The Road" entry as I had described earlier this month

scan in my next entry regarding the Civil War service of Lemuel Tucker as I work to fill in his life and search for ways to break through that wall

be part of tonight's "Saturday Night Fun" and explain how ironic it was that it led to further records in my tree

But alas, the technology gremlins have entered my household and stolen my abilities to enter photos onto my blog, disrupted the scanner to such an level that the poor girl refuses to work even though the rest of her all-in-one parts are cooperating, and even Microsoft Word has decided to enter into the party just for fun.

As I write this I am waiting for my laptop to return from an amazing technology marvel who blessedly enough is actually a "cousin" that holds my genealogy world (yes, it is backed up on external drives I can't use right now), and am using a newer desktop that is doing all the fighting I am referring to above that now is about to be worked on remotely by same blessed man.

All of this at the same time that I am trying to prepare for a courthouse trip for a couple days.

Thank God that I am one who still believes in keeping some of my work in paper form or I would really be up a creek.

I'd put a picture of that on here right now, but, well, ............ you get the idea.

Soon the moon and the stars will align again in my universe.
