I Was in Control! (Briefly)

 
Do you remember this picture? It's the main control panel at the newspaper stuffing machine.

I got to be the one who operated it for a while today! It didn't last long. The machine was running horribly. I was there for less than an hour, and I got shuffled to watch the papers on the moving table and clear the belts when they jam. That was ok too. Now that I know how to run the control panel, I know they might let me step in there from time to time.

I leave for New York tomorrow morning. Am I ready? No. Am I too tired to care tonight? Yes. I think I have to go to bed early and get up early.

Now that the blog networks that rewarded daily posts are gone, I won't be going out of my way to schedule posts ahead of time. If I am able to make a post on the road occasionally, I will. Otherwise... just be confident I'm having a good time, and I'll update you when I can. I expect you'll see something tomorrow and Sunday, but after that... who knows?

I've run many machines with control panels like that. The picture takes me back in time.

Have a wonderful, safe trip, Joan.
I'm not too good with machines...the newspapers would be flying everywhere.

Have a safe journey.

And so lucky that you do not have to carry the machine around.
