Laundry, Writer's Guild, and Error Screens

Sorry, I haven't been around, but laundry must be done. I wanted to get here after the pool this morning, but I needed a nap first. Two hours later, I was on my way to my son's to do laundry. Brrr, it's cold outside. The wind chill is in the teens or was, I haven't seen a current forecast since this morning. But that's what we get when the skies are blue and the sun is shining in winter. Has anyone experienced error screens? I'm getting them often it seems. I got it a couple of times yesterday, when I posted the Daily Bible Study, and when I logged in just now. I hope it's fixed soon. Tonight is Writer's Guild. You might remember that last month I didn't write anything because I was fully involved in NaNoWriMo. So, after getting the laundry folded and somewhat put away, and hearing from my friend she would pick me up tonight, and letting my new friend know Debbie would be here at 4:30 to pick us up, I'm now sitting at my computer for almost the first time today. I was here for a short time this morning before the pool. I now have the short story written for tonight's meeting. Here are the words and my story. I couldn't keep it to 100 words though, it's a bit over. Savoir-Faire Bon Mot Nom de Plume Savoir Faire – Knowledge of just what to do in any situation; tact. Bon Mot – A witty remark or saying; clever saying, witticism Nom de Plume – Pen name Marjory could make you angry, make you think, make you happy at any given time and sometimes all at once. She had a certain savoir-faire about her that made people wary because you never knew what to expect. She had a bon mot for every occasion, whether it was good or ill. For that reason, she never told anyone her name, but always used a nom de plume. Marjory was my friend. Therefore, it was a shock when I read about her death and saw her name in the paper for the first time with her picture, so I knew it was her. No more witty remarks, or knowing what to do in any situation. She was gone and life would not be the same without her. That is my offering for tonight and my day so far. How is your day going? Thanks for reading.

I haven't seen errors, just a bit of slowness at times. I'm truly sorry for the loss of your friend.

That's a nice story. We have our wind-up this Friday but I don't think I'll get there. I have a bad cold which isn't showing signs of clearning up any time soon.

I would think it would be hard to upload a photo from your phone.

I had an error opening one discussion yesterday, I found the site a bit slower than usual. French use the phrase "savoir-faire" in the sense of ability and knowledge to solve problems with tact.

Yes, that's what the definition is that I found. It seems the error problem is gone.

I was getting error screens, but not on here. It was DNS errors. Now I think it's fine now that I got a new router. Nice story. I always go over when I have a set amount of words to write. It's been cold here too.

I'm sorry you were getting error screens for something else. I don't usually go over the word quota, but this time I did. I'm glad you like it.
