Getting to know you getting to learn all about you.

I don't know why that tone keeps bouncing through my head other than the fact that that is what I will be doing when I get a new computer in the next day or so. Getting a new one is by no means a decision of choice. I wish it were. Not unlike getting a new sewing machine when you keep the old one just in case you and the new one doesn't jell, you can always fall back to the OLD RELIABLE. With computers this has never happened. I've never had an old reliable. They just DIE ON ME and there I am with this new thing that I have to learn all about when I would rather be doing you know what. Computer's never die a convient death it is always when you are in the middle of something else. And it always seems to happen just when you have gotten completely familiar with it.

It was the mother-board the repair shop man diagnosed. D******!!!!! So you know I might as well buy a new one as to have it repaired. Right? Right! I went off to look at some models on the way home but gave up and went to dinner with my daughter and grand-son instead at a newly opened fish the specialty restaurant named Joey's. Can't give the place a good score because of the poor service andn the temperature of the food which was barely warm when it arrrived. The manager was apoligetic , and offered to make it right, but by that time I had lost my appetite and I chalked it up to the fact that they are new and it was really crowded. I don't plan to eat there again until after Lent and maybe by then with all the practice of serving a full house they will have gotten their act together.

I am blogging from my daughter's work-laptop today and checking my e-mail. And now that I know how to do this I am not totally cut off from the outside world at the moment, this will only last until she goes back to work on Monday. So it is computer shopping for me tomorrow. It's been so long since I set up my e-mail account that I had to rack my brain to remember what my pass word was. Still haven't figured out how to get my e-mail address book. I hope that information was down loaded onto an external hard drive by the repair shop and that I will be able to retrieve it when I get my new computer. I was too frazzled last evenig and distraught over the demise of my computer to think straight so I know some of you who got my telephone call to say if you want to contact me quick the best way is to telephone, well it still is despite me using Lyn's computer until further notice.

It was snowing again when we left the restaurant last evening. We got about 2-1/2 before it stopped this morning. I don't know what to say about this Winter here in Missouri other than it has been strange. Since January there has not been one day that the snow has completely melted in our yard before more snow falls on top of it.

But for today, the sun is shining, I am working on a new flower quilt, listening to a book on CD and I am just about to make my way to the kitchen for a hot cup tea and honey. Stay warm.
