The funny thing about teaching some basic computer skills to my friend, Barb, is that it reveals some basic holes in my own knowledge. Especially because Barb never fails to ask, “Why? Why does it do that?” “Why–why did that happen?” I am satisfied knowing procedures, and she wants to know why they work! She’s coming along great!

Well–she’s immensely creative. Spending the morning at her house is like opening the door into Wonderland.
She fed me a lovely lunch out on her back patio, served on good china, and the sun was shining like crazy–a perfect spring day.
