Patience is needed, tonight, folks, for you and for me. You see, last night, our computer gave up the ghost. At least... we think it did. A friend is going to look at it, and failing it's restarting, take all the pictures off it for us, so we don't lose them.
I did have a couple of warnings over the weekend that the drivers were going, and I suspect we could have done something quickly... but.... we're human. So Keith went out tonight and got a new computer, got it all connected, and went to bed. I am trying to get the protection in (We use Avast professional and have found it to be superb at keeping unwanted trash out) and the printer and camera programs loaded.
Bear with me, please.
We had planned a story about something we saw over the weekend, but I have already taken it out of the camera, and it is loaded in the old computer, so unattainable.
I'll try to get another picture this weekend to show you.
So, guess what? ALL MY FAVORITES ARE GONE. Yes, three years of saving sites and referring back to them... gone with the wind.
On the plus side, my Hannah is here at my feet snoring away. I ran out while Keith was gone just after work to do chores, and left her in the house alone. When the other dogs and I came back, she was sitting on the pad in the kitchen throwing her head back and HOWLING... we have never, ever seen her do that, and she must have been scared stiff and wanting someone to come rescue her! She and I have had a quiet evening on the couch after dinner, waiting for Keith to finish. She did not have her medicine today, she did not get anything in her stomach this morning, and did eat only a little tonight. We'll try again tomorrow. The incision, though, is healing fine.
I can't figure out where to find the pictures I just loaded (only three or four that were in the camera) so this will be a pictureless post, I'm afraid.
What did he get? A Dell, our first.
Hopefully, tomorrow night I'll be able to figure things out, until then....
(Guess what? I just realized all my downloaded clip art and artwork is in the other computer, as well).
