ON THE BACK BURNER

March 12

Twice a year I go through the same routine. You'd think I would either print out the info or remember. How to adjust our electronic clocks to the change of time. The manual clocks are no brainers. The clock on the stove is a nightmare. i push, hold down, kick the stove and still I just get the flash of numbers. I''ll goto the internet, put in the name of the stove and get the directions for changing the time. This time, I will print them out and file them in a folder that I labeled,"Things I want to save".This is an important folder. I really do use it the most of all of our folders. I have in it, used passports,a few special old pictures, a story a kid wrote in high school. These are important to me. I sometimes throw in a special receipt, like our Homesteaders postcard.When I can't find what I want in another folder , I go into the "Things I want to save " folder. It's not the same as my junk drawer. In my junk drawer, I keep things like the pieces of a flashlight,and a pair of pliers and cough drops. This is the second most important place in our house. If it isn't in my special folder, it has to be in the junk drawer. I also have a safe deposit metal box, but I won't tell where that is, or what is in it. Well OK. In it is Bob's Little Orphan Annie's special decoder button.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.
