Well then, that last post worked. This is not rocket science...it should really be almost as easy to work from the road as it is from home, but maybe the iPad isn't quite the right tool. (I'm posting this from my cousin's lapdog.) But having never done it before I feel like it's like Wallace and Grommit's attempt to build a rocket ship. (Although theirs worked, if you've seen that particular film.) I'm not a dolt; I just do a good impersonation of one every now and then.
So anyway, the photographic item I forgot to pack is the little doohickey that permits me to download an SD card to the iPad. (Told you it was something.) Not that it matters anyway since I can't seem to post from the iPad. I'm not going to download my pictures to my cousin's MacBook Pro, so you'll just have to imagine that this post is illustrated with a photograph of the glassy surface of a bacalmed Lake Michigan taken from high above the prow of a speeding catamaran, and a characterful shot of a row of 1890s cottages high atop the bluff over Sylvan Beach. (This is my cousins' house—theirs is #9, and the picture is about 80 years old.)
Looks like a proper lapdog is in TOP's future. I really do want to travel and work at the same time; there's no reason why not. I want to go to Paris, and England, and Colorado, and....
We'll be back to normal soon; and as you can see I'm still posting comments.
