Computer Works!

11/15/13 Friday at Fair Play, SC (Carolina Landing-TT)

Super news, my keyboard was cleaned and the computer works. Off to Seneca AGAIN to pick it up. When we arrived he explained that he cleaned the keyboard and put a blower to it. That’s all it needed. Plus since this was only water, it was easy to clean. He said there was nothing that went past the plastic layer just under the keyboard (to the motherboard) Justin had noted yesterday that he found when you wash a keyboard in the dishwasher you need to give it several days to dry. So for $65 (it included the $45 diagnostic fee) my computer is fixed! According to Staples I needed to order a new keyboard and pay them to install it: 5 or more days and $130 plus tax. Yes, I’d say I’ll choose an independent computer shop from now on! Plus I’ll turn off my computer the instant I spill anything on it.

With happy heart I spent the afternoon completing computer projects I needed my computer for, ever so grateful for this quick fix by Ross Computers in Seneca, SC. I highly recommend them, if you’re in the area.

Rain tonight, but it should be dry for our trek to Yemassee, SC tomorrow.

To celebrate I’m sharing this photo of umbrella trees at the Biltmore Estate:

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.
