Technology, My Old Nemesis

As usual, Janette is having technical difficulties. For some reason I don’t even try to figure out, my last blog posted twice. I thought I could delete the post, but no, I couldn’t find that button on New Blogger. I hand deleted the typing, hoping New Blogger was installed with psychic powers and would understand what I was trying to do—but well, you see the result. So now I’m being philosophical about it and have decided this is the computer’s way of saying it wants to hear more from me about the conference.

Okay then, one more point of interest in my last trip:
I did a book signing in the BYU book store where I worked twenty years ago. It was sort of a surreal experience. Even my old boss was still there. I’d like to report that while I worked there all those years ago in my spiffy blue vest, I had some sort of premonition that one day I’d be back as an author. But I wasn’t installed with psychic powers either. Once, when Orson Scott Card was there for a book signing which hardly anyone came too, I did think, “Boy am I glad that’s not me.”

Oh, if only I’d known how many times that would be me.

Luckily though, it wasn’t me at this particular book signing. I sold a lot of books. Hurray!

Actually Josi she accidentally posted "My New BFF's" twice. Just this one didn't have the cool sledding picture.
