From now on, I'm going to post all of my problems on the Reader website to see if anyone out there in cyberland will solve them. Last week, I posted that I thought my computer had a virus, and lo and behold, an old friend that reads my blog contacted me about coming out to my place to fix the problem.
I wasn't sure he was serious, after all, why would he do that? We haven't seen each other in a couple of years, and I made no promises about giving him anything in return.
He showed up and not only fixed my desktop, he helped me connect my new e-reader and even let me choose one of two laptops so I can go to the library to write and not put up with the many distractions around my house.
His help was a nice surprise. I haven't gotten a break in a while and his generosity was very much appreciated. It's great having an IT guy around the house.
Thank you, RJ, and be safe on your trip. I wish the situation was different for us.
