Help.

I'm going to try posting this in html on blogger to see if it will take.

This is what is going on.

Over a week ago, the phone company sent a pulse through my phone line that took out the internal modem on my beloved Mac G3 Blue and White. I spent my last 40 bucks to get a replacement for it. It arrived three days late and was delivered to the wrong address. I've just tracked down the part and have installed it to find that it does not work.

The laptop is only capable of email and playing blogshares.

I need help. If anyone has a USB cable modem they are not using, I'd be most greatful for the loan of it. Email me and I'll tell you where to send it.

It's sort of embarassing to me, but I live off of less than 1000 dollars a month. Not much for all those years I spent busting my tail in the entertainment and media business, but those are the breaks. If you run off and join the circus and then contract a life threatening chronic illness...then you takes you chances.

I just want to write again. It's my one little indulgence. And other people seem to enjoy it, so that's not so bad.

There are a few other ways you can help me get out of my current predicament.

1. Donate to the blog using the button on the upper right hand corner.

This provides me with the gas money to make jaunts into deepest, darkest Appalachia so I can then come back here and tell these stories to you.

2. Buy from the Rosie's Cocker Rescue Referral Store. You get some of the best fudge you ever put in your mouth and provide funds for my efforts in Cocker Spaniel rescue. This goes toward vet visits and meds for my charges, gas money for transports and long distance phone calls to secure placements for cocker spaniels in trouble.

3. Order digital art from Angel Dogs Pet Portraiture. These funds mostly support the dog rescue as well. If you know someone who has lost a pet, they really appreciate these as a gift.

I have no idea what this post is going to look like once I send it. I hope it is legible.

Basically, unless some deus-ex-machina arrives in the form of multiple fudge orders or something, I will be largely off-line and home-bound until the 20th, which is when I'll have a few extra dollars to get a cable modem for the computer.

Believe me, I'm jonesing to write as much as you are wanting to read.

Cross your fingers...I'm hitting "publish post" now.

    Rosie, I can read your thing just fine. I guess we've all been wondering what happened to you.

    Insanity. You sound like me. My cellphone (and only phone, at that) was just turned off, I'm $50 short for my past due rent, and after that I will have about $18 to get me until next Friday (payday), but, rest assured, I will be buying some of that fudge, and whatever else I can manage, because I sooo know where you're at, and it blows, big time.
