        There a lot of folks in the DFW area. It would be strange if a few were not physical neighbors as well as virtual. Virtual: there is a word worthy of discussion. I don’t think I ever used the word prior to 198X when I started fooling around with computers. But I must be standing alone, because my iPad dictionary traces it back a few centuries. Sometimes my lack of education is more obvious tha I wish it was :-/.

        late 14c., “influencing by physical virtues or capabilities,” from M.L. virtualis, from L. virtus “excellence, potency, efficacy,” lit. “manliness, manhood” (see virtue). The meaning of “being something in essence or fact, though not in name” is first recorded 1650s, probably via sense of “capable of producing a certain effect” (early 15c.). Computer sense of “not physically existing but made to appear by software” is attested from 1959.

        Thanks for asking about Barb. She’s on the mend, on chicken broth. Thursday night I was on the verge of calling 911, but going to the emergency room is a good choice. They send you back to your own doctor, and not much has happened, so we suffered through the night and crowded in at the family doctor’s office the following morning.

        After the second visit in two days she began to rally and she’s on her computer games in short spirits this morning. That’s a good sign. We’re in tall cotton this morning.

        She’s 73. I’m 78. We give thanks every morning for one more day. 🙂 We’ve been together 53 years. Life is fragile.
