  1. Today’s Post — Brought To You By The Letter “A”

    October 6, 2012 by myeye

    I live up on the mesa and we have dust — wind storm dust and everyday dust.  It coats EVERYTHING in the house.  My home office desk is in the family room near the sliding glass door so it gets more than its share of dust.  My laptop is docked on that desk — also gets more than its share of dust.  You may recall that I bought a personal (3.5 gal.) shop vac.  It has a nice little brush and it sucks up dust.  I used it on the laptop and — it sucked up the letter “A” — right off the keyboard.  I normally use a full size wireless keyboard with the laptop while at home, but at seminars and in court the missing letter A is terribly obvious and not in keeping with my occasional professional appearance.

    So, I went to Dogpile.com, typed in “replacement keys” and found Laptop-keys.com.  The letter “A” arrived yesterday in my Post Office Box.  I’m going to vacuum the keyboard again (hoping no other letters are sucked up) and then install the new A key.  Where would I be without the internet — and PBS?
