It's that time of the year....

I have come to the conclusion…

that I don’t know how to spell anymore.  I spent years typing this or that in my AF career.  Back in the days before the computer corrected our mistakes for us, alerting us by the hated red squiggly line beneath the word.  Back in the days when I had to be an expert on the usage of whiteout.  Now I type faster than I can think when I am making a comment on someone’s post and after I have added it I see the typos I made.  Sometimes I will delete and retype but usually I am too lazy and just leave it be.  Sometimes a day later I will check my favorites and read the comments.  That is when I see the mistakes I made typing my comment.  I do notice, however, that I am not alone in this.  LOL
I have my laundry in the dryer already as I am trying to beat the excessive heat of the day which is to reach 95 today with heat index of 110 in places.  I have done my workout for the morning which I try to do faithfully each day.  Next, I think I will crank up the AC full blast and do a little bit of cleaning with the emphasis on the word little reminding myself again that it is not going to matter one little bit 100 years from now.  However, today, I have to live here and I can’t stand a messy house.
Don’t forget your mail person in this heat.  If you are home have a bottle of cold water ready to give them.  My mail lady says that pop just makes her feel hotter and she appreciates the water.  I had a  missed paper again the other day.  The person who brought it this time was not my handsome old fellow from the previous time.  :-)
Time to get busy.  Catch you all later.



  1. We get a major cool down that may bring severe weather here. There's been several microburts and even some tornados which is very rare for our state but I guess at least we're not sweltering. I sure hear you on the spelling end of things...that and speed dial so we don't actually have to memorize phone numbers has got to have caused a major brain drain!

  2. We are in the same situation with heat and humidity. No one seems to be getting a break in the eastern half of the Country.

    I LOVE it if you make a typo. You KNOW I do, each day in every comment no matter how I try not to. My eye doesn't see it till I come back to visit again. How embarrassing but how like me. :-)

  3. The air here is so thick you could cut it with a knife. Weather guessers say we may get a cool down tomorrow.

    I find, after 16 years on computers that I can now type with TWO FINGERS ON EACH HAND! and my spell check needs remedial education.

  4. What really bothers me is when I misspell a word, but it's actually another word and spell check doesn't catch it. Wish it could read my mind.

    I'm really looking forward to the end of this summer. I've never been a fan of heat and as I get older, I dislike it even more. Hope you get some relief soon. Enough is enough!

  5. My situation was I don't know how to write english untill 2005 (my hubby and I speak half Japanese & English) which I joing on MSN LOL!
    At the time few people has post to about my writting...BUT few my friends encourage to said "Don't worry you are just blogging keeping your post:-)
