|Maggie in progress|
If I hadn't gotten up at 6:15, another day would have past where I didn't get any work done on Dame Maggie Smith. But I did. It was Monday. I wanted to get my computer into the shop when it opened at ten.
Maggie needed an eye lift--and from what it looks like here, I'm not finished yet. Measurement lines are very important to getting a decent drawing. I keep putting them in as I notice strategic points. Today, I noticed her left eye was too low and had just brought it up where it should be when my Sun Torch light went off signalling time's up. Too bad. I was really getting into it, but my computer needed serious attention.
The rest of the morning and part of the afternoon were spent with the Geek Squad, who got it all wrong, and with Dell arranging for the repair of my LCD--the monitor screen of my laptop--and then getting some sort of picture program going on this laptop. While I don't like how this program works, I'm not complaining. I do have a stand in computer while my touch screen is in the shop and I'm sitting in a heated house. All is well at Roth's Roost. I wish that were true in the rest of the world.
[If any of you ever have a Dell hardware problem, I have the phone numbers to call--but be prepared to sit on hold. Dell would much rather you went online for service. They keep telling you that over and over and over again as you hold because you don't have a computer that turns on! firstname.lastname@example.org]
