like a lot of places in the rest of the nation
here in the middle of the country we have had endless days of heat indexes in
the danger zones.
extremely high dew point and high triple digits temperatures that won’t quit.
add to that the fact that nights have not been cooling down either and all that
combined has made the last dregs of summer here unbearable!
on tuesday my computer decided to disconnect me from the internet.
i called and no one seemed to be able to figure out why.
the modem and router were working just fine.
FINALLY! today a very sweet girl geek squad member from utah helped me!
i have a sneaking suspicion that this little computer ‘ just don’t like me! ‘
there’s a sweet family story about that last phrase in the sentence above.
he is now special operations force that is highly trained and frequently deployed
in extremely dangerous situations.
he’s six feet tall and thanks to special PT training every morning at 5am when
he’s not deployed he is in the best shape of his life.
i’m not sure he would appreciate my telling this about him . . . but it’s sweet
and he doesn’t read my blog anyway!
SO . . .
when master sgt mike (my nephew… the marine’s son) was a little boy of three
his mother and i took him to the easter egg hunt at one of the local parks here.
we got there a bit late. there was a HUGE easter CHICKEN . . .
don’t ask me why it was a chicken instead of a rabbit.
maybe all the rabbit suits were taken.
well . . .
looky here! here’s one mowing a lawn!
anyway . . . the easter chicken was handing out candy to put in the baskets of
all the many children.
little mike . . . being only three was quite a bit smaller than all the other kids.
most looked to be about four or five and on up. he had his little basket.
he kept trying to get close to the chicken. and yet the chicken never seemed to
be able to see him. he was down too low apparently.
the parents were to wait in a separate area . . . giving the children and the
easter chicken time to interact with each other.
mikey came back to where his mother and i were sitting. we asked him if he
got any candy.
his reply . . .
” no. that easter chicken just don’t like me! “
of course you might know that his mom and his auntie tam remedied that!
but ever since then . . . when something goes awry without a reason . . .
that saying comes to my mind! LOLOL!
SO . . .
perhaps this computer likes me after all. it’s just possible it can’t SEE ME!
and . . . as to the REAL NEWS of this post . . .
please keep your fingers crossed for us!!!
we are expecting possible thunder showers tonight and maybe tomorrow as well.
a cold front ( temps in the high 80’s!) has moved through.
hey. we’ll TAKE IT! it’s so nice to be under 100!
and the temps next week will only be in the low 90’s.
it’s practically a miracle!!!
i have a little catching up to do on your blogs. i’ll be around.
i know one thing. being without this computer is so strange now.
it’s part of my world. when i’m without it . . . oh my!
PLUS . . .
after the last problem with it i elected to pay for the plan that allowed me to call
the geeks for any reason for a whole year. i think it’s already paid for itself!
this will be me soon!!!
i’m not a boy!
til soon old bean!
