Ghost in the machine--so no photos for this one.

I don't believe in ghosts. I do believe in machines. But something weird is happening around here lately because I have "experiencing technical difficulties" with lots of my favorite little gadgets. Here are the happenings in the last two days:

First, it's the light on the garage door opener. It stopped coming on when you open the door.
Then it's the door on the car, which gets stuck every time we've driven for the past two days.
The magnetic strip on the credit card is unreadable (okay, not a gadget, but you get the idea).
My ipod says "okay to disconnect," and that's all it does now.
The card on my camera is shot, and the excellent photos I took of the leaves this afternoon are gone.
The printer fights me with almost everything I send to it.

Is there a ghost in the machine? Probably not. But I'm counting my blessings that the heat works, our modem continues to function, and that our fridge seems to be running strong.

Sorry I couldn't share those great photos of the leaves--I'm chalking it up to an exercise in fleeting beauty.

Yikes! That is a whole lot of technical difficulty. Hope you get the bugs or ghosts, or whatever they are,out very soon.
