Oops-Trish Spilled Water On Her Computer

11/12/13 Tuesday at Fair Play, SC (Carolina Landing-TT)

At 9:30 am we visited Greg and Marcia to get their photo for our phones and say goodbye.  We hope to get together in Florida.  Another golfing partner for John!

This morning, as I was writing my blog for Monday, I was holding my plastic water bottle over the keyboard when I relaxed my hand, it slipped out and spilled the little water in it over my keyboard.  I attacked with paper towels, then texted Justin (our son).  He said turn it off and take the battery out before you do anything.  Water alone won’t hurt (good way to clean a keyboard is putting it into a dishwasher) but when any electricity is present the water can conduct it, creating shorts in the power stream.  He suggested I let it sit overnight, at least to help it get thoroughly dry.  Some hair dryer would be okay.  John and I spent the afternoon in the lodge cruising the Internet on HIS computer.


About Patricia Elser

I've always loved the loose, flowing, transparent look of watercolors, of Chinese paintings and their calligraphy, but alas, no watercolor classes were available when I was in school, so that interest remained buried until my children were grown. Even then, I was afraid that I couldn't really paint, so upon my sister's advice, I actually started to take classes. I signed up for every class available, determined to learn no matter how afraid I was. I came upon a teacher, Stan Miller, who inspired me, who opened the door to success in watercolor. I love to look at beautiful images. I want to capture them forever. All my life, photography was how I gathered images of the beauty I saw. Thanks to all that photography, I enjoy composing pictures, especially up close. Watercolors allow me to add more of me in their translation of that beauty. My paintings reflect my love for music and dance, with their rhythm and flow. I am fascinated by the play of light, so it appears in my pictures as drama for they are filled with darks and lights. Maybe it's the challenge, maybe it's the beauty, but now, when a work comes together, it fills my soul.
