Playing Around!

Hey Crystal! The blog looks different!

Well, you know the old line from the Wizard of Oz: “Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain!” πŸ˜‰

I’m just playing with a new look – doing a little tweaking. It will all look familiar again soon! (I hope) lol πŸ™‚


So Near and Yet So Far

Are you missing me?
I sure am missing you!!!

Do I have my computer back?

NO! (Loud sobbing, sniffling, and general wailing noises, here)

On Tuesday afternoon, the repair place said things were looking good. I figured I’d have it back Wednesday for sure. But when we hadn’t heard anything by Wednesday afternoon, Sir Beads checked in with them and they said that things had suddenly “gone south”. Now they’re not sure if it’s a virulent virus or if there’s a problem with the hard drive! They were in the process of backing up everything. (Gulp!)

“Lord love a duck” is the phrase that comes to mind. (Where did I ever hear that? I don’t remember anyone saying it . . . Was it on some TV show?)

Anyway, I’d like to request you cross not only your fingers but also your toes that I don’t lose everything on that old ‘puter. I can’t imagine starting from scratch and losing so much info and all the photos. (Yes, I know I should already have done my own complete backup but I hadn’t done one lately. Boo me!)

So, what are you Kids doing? πŸ™‚

I’m on a friend’s computer at the moment. If I don’t get mine back soon, I will be borrowing one for next week.

Talk to you soon!



It’s Always Something

As Gilda Radner used to say on the old Saturday Night Live sketch:

“It’s always something!”

The computer virus that I wrestled with for much of the day on Thursday isn’t gone after all. It was apparently just resting before the next skirmish would begin.

Some would say that I’ve led a pretty charmed life in that I’ve rarely had any computer woes. I guess I was overdue!

At this point, I’m going to let the experts have a go at fixing the problem, which means I’ll be without my computer for a while and it may be a few days before you hear from me again . . .

In the meantime, be good! πŸ˜‰

Lots of hugs to all,


Time for a Staycation . . .

Hi Kids! πŸ™‚

Besides wishing you a wonderful weekend, I wanted to let you know I’ll be on vacation from the blog next week. . .

Have fun while I’m away.

Miss me a little. (Please?)

And let’s get together again, right here, on the 26th, ok? πŸ˜‰

I’ll have a brand new giveaway. (Gee, I miss you already!)

You can still leave comments or even send me an email by clicking the “contact us” button in the sidebar.

I’ll be checking my computer daily. πŸ˜‰
