As a prize, he thinks we should offer a train. “Sixty thousand is a big deal,” he explains, “it deserves a big prize.” But I don’t think I can afford a train.

My knee is still a mess, although not as painful as it was two days ago. I appreciate your prayers.

I’ve just discovered I have these little “^ ^ ^” symbols on my keyboard. What are they for? In fact, just looking at it now, I have a lot of keys whose purposes are unknown to me. And if you think I’m going to press any of them, away wi’ ye!

Unless it simply can’t be helped, I don’t plan to cover any nooze today.

Special to “TheWhiteRabbit”–Burt Kwok has nothing to do with quokkas. You could’ve knocked me over with a feather.

    1. Ah, but consider the Quokka size scale. I’m sure he’d love riding a Quokka-size train! 🙂

    2. Actually, it could be a tiny train with a BIG track setup. Ooooh, would I love one of those … if I had any room for it in my tiny apartment. I always loved toy trains and cars when I was a little girl. Also when I was a big girl. And also when, as my grandma would have said, “A girl she’ll be again in the next world.” 🙂

  1. I’m not sure, either, as to the purpose of “^” on my keyboard. I suppose I could ask my daughter. Or my supervisor who is a computer nerd. If you do discover the purpose, please be certain to advise the rest of us. Hope your knee feels better. I’ll be praying.

    1. I could tell you, but I’d get kicked out of the Union for divulging trade secrets. 🙂

      It’s called circumflex, or sometimes a carat. It comes in handy for certain programming tasks, but is seldom used in everyday tasks.

    2. It’s used as a diacritical mark over a vowel in a pronunciation guide (which may have been changed to total unintelligibility lately), but I don’t know what it does on my keyboard. Maybe makes novels disappear.

    3. You get to the point where you make up words because they sound so cool. You can make money, doing that for a college.

  2. I would stay away from keyboard symbols you are not familiar with. Who knows what might happen? Could they possibly open up some kind of parallel universe where you could be lost for decades^^^^^^^?
