I actually did lose my phone line for a while! Our connection had been awfully bad for months, and it had got a lot worse suddenly. We have a dial-up internet connection, so when I could get online I had to crawl around at a snail’s pace.
But, our phone line is back and is much better than it was before. I can zip around the net now, well, by comparison anyhow. In other news, my drawing space is secure! My drawing time has been reclaimed! All is well.
Funny how even the most complicated problems seem manageable as long as The Art is being taken care of properly.
