Moving In Slow Motion

I don't know if it is my WiFi connection here at the campground, the internet in general, or the site, but everything seems to be downloading, uploading, or just plain happening in slow motion on the site today.

I tried to interact on the site earlier this morning and kept getting error messages that the page I was trying to get to was unavailable or the action I was trying to take had timed out. The thing was, the action had just started so I don't see how it could have timed out.

I tried several times to comment on a post and kept getting error messages. The same thing happened when I tried to respond to a comment on one of my posts.

Why is it that sometimes working remotely can go so smoothly and other times it can be so trying? Right now things seem to be going swimmingly. Maybe it has to do with the angle of the sun.

I wrote this at the campground two weekends ago and saved it to my drafts folder, and then forgot about it, duh! Also, why is it that whenever I recall an article from my drafts folder the photo always disappears when I post it?

I cannot seem to save anything to my draft folder. Hmmmm....

I have yet to experience any difficulties but I would not be surprised.

Internet is a touchy thing. I am exceptionally fortunate, because DSL barely made it to me, but made it it did. I have really decent internet, pretty consistently.

Have fun camping. I always thought that going our to the country meant disconnecting from the electronics for a while. It's a needed thing.

I was thinking that yesterday the site seemed rather slow. Must be happening quite regularly

I have never used my draft folder but the weather seems to mess with all of these air carried signals easily sometimes

Were you standing on one foot?

And don't forget to wear the right color.

I blame Donald Pennington

I can only save to my draft folder if the time check has passed since my last post. I thought the draft folder was there so we could go ahead and write another post right away and save it as a draft until the time hack. But it clearly doesn't work that way.

Sadly, my wife has to be able to log into work even on the weekends when we're camping, and I usually spend time writing, either online or working on a new book. I can't hand write anymore due to my arthritis, but I can type as much as I want.

Standing on one foot and holding my mouth just the way they show in the diagram.

I did forget to check on what the suggested color was for the day.
