I seldom am embarrassed by the usual come-and-goes of life. One of King Solomon's well spoken quotes is that there is nothing new under the sun. A lot of this nothing-new-stuff happens to me on a familiar basis. We won't talk about how after leaving the market on my Labor Day outing ( 'Worth Speaking About' below) that I managed to lose my money card in the process. I discovered my mishap right away and with-in minutes, my faithful bank took action to preserve the remainder of the funds I had entrusted to them I didn't get embarrassed.
Ever go through one of those periods? The last voting day here, it rained. I hopped from my car to retrieve an umbrella kept in the trunk, and zing--I got me. My keys were still in the ignition. I had to call a friend, an ex military police officer who struggled; and finally opened a door for me. I called him with words of gratefulness until I got the hint that Bill was kindly asking, "Could you stop the thank yous now?"
OK, here's what embarrasses me. After all of these years, I still have problems learning what my computer can and cannot do. Six days have elapsed since my last post. Not because, I did not come ready with a daily post for my blog, but because...
Let's just say, the security I have on my writing is greater than that on my car, no matter all its whistles and lock downs. My blog's fascinating security--which I am still learning to appreciate--locked me out. The experience over the last few days taught me much. For one lesson, just keeping my awareness always on the alert is a virtue in and of itself. For another, being locked out of any of life's come-and-goes is way outside of my comfort zone.
