Technological Penitent Prayer

Computers can be
An intricate mystery
Serving us quite well
And with almost no complaint
Until they suddenly stop.

Our world is then thrown
Into depths of confusion
We cannot escape
Without the aid of gurus
Who guard their expert knowledge.

We mere mortals are
At mercy of specialists
Who we but seldom
Understand and only hope
Will repair our dear machines.

When programs rebel
Leaving us in quandary
We must consult those
Who can rectify all our
Diverse computer problems.

We beseech every
One of those authorities
To exhibit grace
Toward those of us who need
Their generous assistance.

I am grateful:

1.   Richard, my mentor, called this morning and helped me get Outlook working.
2.   I was able to call the editor of the CHN&V and get the Sweetwater Camera Club meeting date for February changed before the magazine goes to press.
3.   I called the church and talked to Mary.
4.   I was able to figure out a minor problem with Outlook.
5.   Hoke Smith, the new president of the SCC, liked the page I sent out today and responded with a comment I wholeheartedly support.

    Yay! for the continued writing, Yay! for the wonderful photos. My suggestion? Just keep being honest and switch to Cheerios. You can take or leave the second suggestion. I love your writing.

      Thank you Loni… Cheerios are not one of my favorites. One day I will get tired of the Oreo cookies, but for now it is only four or five a day, and it is better than nothing for breakfast.
