What the heck; I have no idea what I'm doing on my own computer. So glad I didn't pay a penny to that H-P technician; I still can't print a line, let alone a page. In a snit, I stormed off to Staples and bought "the least expensive printer you have for a Dell computer." It was $68.00.
Oh, but an extra cartridge because the factory installed...
The printer is hard wired. I bought the cable.
At the counter, for $20, I bought the four year warranty. Someone is going to walk me through setting up this printer and uninstalling the H-P, which will go to the curb.
The seventy dollar printer cost me one hundred and eighty one dollars.
One day this week I had an unexpected call from Beth, squealing in excitement over an unexpected bird in her yard. I helped her narrow it down to a Baltimore Oriole. Here's a picture she sent me (through two windows):
Staples is in the same strip mall as Wild Birds Unlimited, where I used to drop the above mentioned sum with no qualm. It announced closed, except for curbside. On a whim, I called, and Bonnie answered. Long story short, they carried a nicely packed spike Oriole feeder to my car, and I will ship it to Beth's back yard tomorrow.
It has quit raining and I'm over my printer snit, so I will go carry my Staples purchases into the house and probably exercise my "Protection and Tech Help Package" setting up the printer.
