A Bad Luck Day

by Maggie Sefton

Kelly Flynn # 14 is a June release from Berkley Prime Crime.  Check out Kelly and the Gang's new adventures.

Apologies for the late post, everyone.  Today has been unbelievably problem-filled.  My always reliable Macbook laptop froze late last night in the middle of a complex new update from Apple.  I had to wait till 10:00am today to take it to the Simply Mac store in Fort Collins so the Apple techs could tell me what's up.  Their advice was to re-start that update while sitting at the store.  Come back hours later.  It was a huge update, new operating system, etc.

Sorry to bore you folks with the techno babble, but  it's a sample of the world we live in.  Our systems that we depend on to keep in touch with all you folks can have problems sometimes.  Meanwhile, other weird stuff started happening this morning.  First, there was a leak under my kitchen sink and water on the floor.  Ackkk!  Towels helped but a call to the plumber was in order.  He was able to come in early afternoon & problem is disposal is cracked.  Old age.  :(

So, once I've posted this, I'm off to Home Depot for new disposal that he can install tomorrow.  Meanwhile, other weird little things happened, like the lawn treatment guy coming at the wrong time when dogs  were outside in backyard.  Because he didn't call before he came, I was still at Mac store, I couldn't put doggies in garage.  Yeah. . .these are little things and annoying as the daylights, but not earth shattering.  But it does make me remember  my friends who follow astrology.  Whenever a weird screwed up day occurred, they would say "Mercury was going retrograde."  In other words, backwards in its orbit.  I never quite understood the connection, but they always swore by it.  Who knows?  Not me, that's for sure.  It does make you wonder, though.  :)
