Been an interesting week, in the terms of the Chinese curse kind of interesting ...
Monday, I broke the ill-designed battery cover door on my new hearing aid -- second time in three months. Had the old one for six years, never did that. This time, they didn't have a replacement, so they had to send it back to the factory. So I get to say "Eh? What's that, sonny?" a lot until it gets fixed. Fourth of July weekend throws a monkey wrench into the idea of getting it in any kind of hurry.
Thursday, I was pulling out of a driveway in my spiffy little Mini convertible and managed to hook the end of a ladder that was tangled up in a pile of junk under the front wheel well on the passenger side, the result of which was to peel the bumper cover, a nice plastic fairing with my license plate and parking lights, off. Made for an interesting drive home, with it on the front seat. Fourth of July weekend, nobody in the car biz is open, and it'll be at least Monday before I find out how much it is going to cost me.
I cannot imagine it will be cheap, and I have a high deductible on my insurance.
Today, my computer started doing funny things, and not funny ha-ha, but funny, Aw, crap! I have run TechTool and rebuilt file structures, but I fear it is a hardware problem, and, given how old the sucker is, probably the hard disk drive. I have made double back-ups of all my work files, just in case it goes ka-blooey.
Plus, my wife has an upset stomach ...
Never a dull moment.
