I've Got a  Secret  Puzzle

A nice day, although it ended with a puzzle.

After breakfast and dog-walking, we removed the items from the broken shelving to move that out of the way and then replace with the new shelves. This was ticklish because one of the things on the shelves is that finicky router which is the bane of my life. Once the space was vacuumed and dusted and the router and the modem up on the top shelf, I felt much better. Then it was printer and paper and the USB floppy drive (yes, we still have one of those) and various stray network cables. Only...James' printer wouldn't work. We were very careful to shut things off before unplugging them, but last week the printer was working and now it is not. However, when I plugged it back in I noticed that the "B" plug was bent. We figured that was the problem and that we would go get a new cord.

First we went to Ollie's Bargain Outlet with a 15 percent off coupon. We picked up some cute gifts and some mints; otherwise it was mostly junk food which we passed on. From there we went to MicroCenter to pick up the new USB to "B" cord and managed to avoid a million temptations.

Finally we had supper at IHOP. I had pot roast with corn, mashed potatoes and a salad. James had an omelet. Neither of us were satisfied. I should have had the French toast, and he is still getting a bad taste in his mouth when he eats since the nasal spray Dr. Prout prescribed for him. Everything tastes bad, even vegetables and plain meat.

Came home, walked the dog, and have been watching I've Got a Secret on Buzzr all night. Some of these are still hysterically funny.

The printer, sadly, even with a new cable, does not work. James downloaded the newest drivers, we have the new cord in, he rebooted everything after reloading the drivers...nothing. Tis a puzzle.
