Because I am not only a control-freak, but also a perfectionist, I wanted to make it clear what just happened with my posting.
After I posted the "hate it" post, I found the one I had tried to post. So I posted it. But, the draft saved automatically by the blogger site (great feature, by the way!) has the date stamp of Thursday Dec. 6.
I just realized that today is the 6th! It is Lynn's birthday today, if my mind works correctly. I tried to change the date to one in the future - no wonder I was told it was "illegal"!
Anyway, I'm going to post this one as the 7th, so it will go on top of my other two posts. Then I'm going to change the time and date stamp back for my next post. If I remember.
