Hi, gang. As you can tell from the previous post's date, I started that story about 1,000 years (or at least several weeks) ago. But, what with one thing and another, I haven't had time to finish it 'til today. What is wrong with me? I have no idea, but I have the feeling that we're going to need to make a list.

One way or the other, when you start a draft and then publish it later, Blogger attatches to the post the date the draft was started, rather than the date you got off your lazy hiney and actually got around to posting it, already, sheesh! I am some kind of posting deadbeat. I clearly need a beating. Or maybe a doughnut. I can't tell which. Those are almost the same, right? Beating, doughnut. What difference?

(Strangely, this reasoning does not help me when the techs want doughnuts. If you offer to substitute a nice beating, they glare at you. What gives?)

At any rate, I have discovered that it is best just to give the techs doughnuts and skip the beating, but the jury is still out on me. I'll try to stay caught up better. This plan may meet with varying degrees of success, some of which may fall under "good" and some of which may fall under "You suck, AKDD!" And, there may be levels in between. Just sayin'.

Meanwhile, I have nearly ceased to cough (just an occasional bout for old times' sake) and have for the most part subsided to a more reasonable temperature. Oh, and I also no longer have to sleep propped up in a sitting position. I would claim to be back to normal, but there are way too many people who know that isn't where I started, so we'll just have to go with "better". :)

I'm okay with snakes, though also not so fond of rattlers. so it was an interesting story, well written.
But I just wanted to let you know that you *can* change the date of a post started long ago... At the bottom left corner of the editing box, click on "post options" and change the date there. This is also how folks can set up a series of posts to publish while they're away on vacation or some such.
Glad to have you back.

Normal..? Yah, you called that about right. But we can say "Normal for certain values of 'normal'" and be in the ballpark.

Ahh, yet again my complete computer illiteracy rears its ugly-ish head! Thanks! I'll try that next time.

Also I learned a trick also.... Just have to write something ...... DUH BRT

Glad you are ok -- you were pretty sick before you disappeared!

You can change the date/time on a post.

At the bottom of the "edit" screen, there is a "post options". If you click on that, you will see a choice between "automatic" and "scheduled".

If you choose "scheduled," you can enter whatever date/time you like.

Thanks, guys! I'll try the date-changing thing.

Also: @MM: yeah, yeah, bite me! :D
