My Georgia buddy Rick "Doc" Agel gave up chopping people's chests apart
as a vascular surgeon to now sticking needles into people as a acupuncturist. Doc is a smart dude and will always be at the top of his game. Since he has this pension for inflicting pain he has dragged me kicking and screaming into the 21st century. Doc bought one of the nicest jugs I have ever made. I told him to send me a cheque. He said if I was going to teach students how to be potter's in the 21st century I had better learn to be one. Since I always listen to my medical professionals except when it comes to flu shots I spent yesterday signing up for Paypal
and getting finally hooked up to The Square for my IPhone. I can now
swipe credit cards on my phone and the money is in my account before you
can say Zirconium Encapsulated Cadmium. I have already sent out 6
invoices and it is easy peasy. Now my customers don't have to buy an
envelope, a stamp, write a cheque and drop it off at the Post Office.
Then when I receive the cheque I don't have to drive a couple of miles
to our nearest bank. So the moral of this post is never trust a medical
professional with a needle in their hand when they say this is going to
hurt me as much as it's going to hurt you. It was a painful day of
dealing with the computer. I think I am feeling much better now.
