Do you have problems with key boards? This one came off Sherry’s computer, would not work over there. Seems to be working okay here. I must have 5 or 6 keyboards around. It was probably just a bad connection.
My biggest problem is that my finger nails eat the letters off the keys. I type with my eyes mostly on the keyboard so there are times I go a line without knowing I am not actually anything on the screen for some reason or the other. I never took typing in school, I learned looking at the keys, I still do.
I can bounce back and forth with my eyes, but I must force myself to do just that. Typing… do you use the finger pad or the tips of your fingers? I have watched Sherry and Shirl type and they use the pads and barely touch the keys, I hit them like I am typing on and old manual typewriter where you had to put some ‘oomph’ into the key stroke. That is what eats the letter off my keys. Hahaha.
Speaking of typing, Isn’t the word processor just marvelous. You no longer have to use white out, correction tape or worst retype a document.
I still get a kick out of this one:
(WE know this ain't Betty, that is for danged sure!)
That realization hit me hard a few years into the building business. When selling a house I noticed something wrong on the contract. My attorney, Vickie, simply went to the computer hit a couple keys and a new corrected contract came out of the printer. I could remember when that would have been an hours delay of closing, because the whole page would have been retyped, no white-out or corrections allowed on original documents.
Do you remember the days before the word processor? ;-)
ps: My best friend Sonny used to say about a farm implement or an old car: That can't be an antique, I used one or drove one of those!
