Oh No!

This is not a good idea! :-) I took my rings off the other night and set them on the paper in my printer! Yes, you see what's about to happen. A while later I hit the 'print' button and out of the corner of my eye saw my rings heading into the guts of the printer. Oh no, Oh no, - dang it, too late! I managed to pull out one set but the the other ring was lodged inside - now what??? - I opened the printer and could see the ring but could not reach it - dang it - then I shook the heck out of the printer and managed to shake it out. Whew! Catastrophe averted!

Life has tossed a few minor challenges my way so I need to take a mini-break away from the computer and blogging! I'm too addicted to stay away completely so I'll pop in and out over the next couple of days but I need to focus more attention on a few other things for now.

See you in a couple of days!

Thanks for visiting!

In Friendship

EEEK! I would have panicked too! In fact, I probably would have gotten my fingers mashed in the printer trying to save my rings.
Take care Darlene, we will miss you while you are taking a break.

Don't stay gone too long. We will miss you if you do! Glad you saved the rings!

Belvie said...

Darlene...just glad those rings weren't still on your finger when the printer tried to eat them!

Take care of you first...the rest will all fall into place.

Carole said...

Gosh, I'm already going through withdrawal! I need some chocolat! No wait! I can't! Okay, a glass of wine! Oh... but it's not the same as chocolate! ;o) Now I'm on two diets; the South Beach and the Darlene blogless! lol Alright I'll quit bugging you! Enjoying your break? Take care!

Oh dear on watching those rings go into the printer!

After doing Pottery for a living for so many years, I stopped wearing any rings, LOL but once before I gave up wearing them I lost one in a bucket of slip/mud lol... I did find it :O)...

Rhonda said...

What a close call. Usually I nearly push my tea glass over onto the keyboard. LOL

Hanne said...

Unless you can get more diamonds by running them through the copy machine / printer it sounds like I have to be sure to keep mine away from the thing ;-)
Please take care - and please be back very very soon.
If you need a shoulder I am here.

Pam said...

Have a nice break Darlene. We will miss you, but everyone needs a little R&R once in awhile!!
