Broken laptop screen
This was actually sort of pretty, with lots of thin lines of different colors. S could not believe I was taking a picture of it. Apparently, the local computer guy can put on a new screen--there are even very good illustrated instructions at Screentek,com about how to do it yourself. I toyed with the idea briefly (I like to try to do everything once, just to prove I can--once I tailored a man's suit for S from some gorgeous soft gray flannel--I had had it professionally pressed to preshrink it, but it wasn't shrunk enough and the beautiful work was ruined by dry-cleaning. Still, it was very handsome until then. Flannel was beautiful to work with--I fastened the horsehair interfacing with tiny stitches into the fabric, but probably too soft to wear well. But I made everything, even the buttonholes.)
We left the laptop to be repaired and came home to a beautiful afternoon and a pink-cloud sunset. Good night.
