One, I have a VERY understanding girlfriend - the one in B'ville I mentioned to you - that I now owe ONE more thing to her! (And, YES, she does keep score!! I was quoting the message to her over the phone while she entered it. I tried to work my computer yesterday AM and the Geek Squad guy figured that there must've been an electrical spike that damaged my motherboard - I guess that's something important to the computer the way he was talking!
Geek said that it would take about 3 days to transfer my info from my old to my new computer and guess what - it took them less than 24 hours (and yes this is me typing) - I can't afford any more favors right now!!
Guess what! This new computer is a piece of, well I think you know!! I have had it AGAIN for 24 hours and it has locked up on me twice and self shut down 3 more times!!!
I am returning this so the store can give someone else this thing and give them headaches. This means that I will be without a computer AGAIN and probably for a week to 10 days or so this time. This means I will not be able to confirm receipt of your flies the same day that I get them or answer any of your concerns by site or E-mail contact. I am SO sorry! In almost 11 years of hosting swaps I have never had such a frustrating time and I do feel bad for any affect that this has on your swap experience!
Im glad I came back here to check on things and let you guys know what I tied. I almost sent out 15 flies out of the 20 I tied. Maybe I'll send all 20, so you each can have a spare.
Anyways what I came here to say originally, is that I tied a variation of Cal Bird's venerable Bird's Nest that I call the Ugly Grizzled Bird. I'll get them in the mail soon.
