Still No Computer


When I was a young girl I always imagined what having a computer would be like. Would it be like Star Trek? Would be cooler than Star Trek? When I actually got one of my own I was thrilled, mostly because I could write and correct typing mistakes with such ease.

Later,  with the development of the Internet and World Wide Web, the world was literally open to me. From that moment on I have not felt tied down or in an information cage. However, each and every time  my computer goes down or gets wonky, the feeling of being separated from the rest of the world hits home.

Not only do I use the Web for research, and for looking things up in my daily life in general, there are some Internet friends I’ve made and dearly love  playing Rummy 500 with and other games. There are mastiff chat rooms I visit on almost a daily basis and now can’t,even with my smart phone.

I really miss my computer world. 😳

About Henrietta Handy

I am a Kentucky mountain girl far from home, perhaps far from the girl years. I am an aspiring writer with a wonderful husband who puts up with this writing and reading addiction I have. He also puts up with all of the yarn and knitting. I have four canine children and a ton of friends I love dearly. I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at the age of 2 1/2 and have still managed to have a good life despite all the pain. So, I invite you to join me in this journey and just possibly have fun along the way.
