I would like to apoligize for not posting more tuts. It has been pretty crazy here. My father-in-law passed away very unexpectedly. Was a shock to everyone. He wasn't sick at all. He got up that morning and got dressed and while he was putting on his shoes he said that he was going to do some work around the house then he would be in. My mother-in-law got busy and didn't think much about him not being there, but when noon rolled around she was hungry and then wondered about Dad. They live about 12 miles out in the country, way off the beaten path. You can't see their house from the road. Mom wasn't too concerned at this point but as she got closer to the house she could see that Dad was laying on the ground. He was perfectly straight with one arm by his side and the other one was across his chest clutching his phone. He was already cold by the time Mom got there. In February they were in a car accident and Mom broke both her arms and Dad broke his knee cap. We thought that that was all the damage done to him. But apparently that wasn't the case. He died of a ruptured bowel and I believe that it all started with the car accident. Carl's family is very close and it hit everyone really hard. Carl and I are divorced but I still feel like part of his family. Carl and I are now just roommates. We were in Colorado a little over a week for the funeral, which had to be done on 2 different days. He was buried in the military cemetery and we could only get in there at 11:00am, noon, and 1:00pm. Since the service was held at 2:00pm we had to wait til the next day to do the graveside service. He had a full military funeral with the 21 gun salute and taps played. Was a very beautiful and moving service.

Also I fell again here at the house and I broke the bursa sac behind both knee caps. It is very painful to walk at times, and standing up is even a chore. I go back to the doctor on October 3, so wish me luck. I hope that I won't have to have surgery to repair them. Hopefully they will heal on their own.

So I will get some tuts up as soon as I can. Again, please accept my apology. Thanks.

A note

I remember what it was like when just starting out in Paint Shop Pro. There are lots of wonderful tuts out there, but most of them are for experienced taggers. It is hard to find a tut if you are a beginner, so I will try to write all my tuts so the beginner can learn and follow along. There will be lots of screen shots to make it easier on you. I apologize to the experienced taggers, but I think that it is good to help out the beginners all we can. Thanks for understanding.
