this is proving to be a very good summer. But thankfully I think it is coming to an end. September is my signal that summer is ending and the weather that this area is famous far is approaching maybe with that to look forward to some of the piddly things that seemed to make me whine so much these last few month will not seem so whine-worthy.
The latest whine-able thing in my life happened two days ago as I was searching online for the next author and a series of books I wanted to read, is my trusty lap top died, well the motherboard did. I shouldn't have been totally surprised. I've had it and thoroughly used it for five years. The space bar was not working and the tracking ball was temperamental. Good thing I had the sense to copy everything to backup disc a couple of weeks ago. So all I will loose is the most recent stuff, unless I choose to have everything downloaded from the internal hard drive to an external one.
It looks like I will be shopping for a laptop over the weekend, HMMM maybe there will be some sales. For now I am in the business center using one of the four computers they have on site for the residents to use.
Update on car. I found a used Toyota Corolla, one owner, well maintained, silver in color. A far cry from the Yellow VW Bug I saw myself tooling about in. I am NOT whining about this. My requirement for a car was only that it went forward, had air conditioning and stopped when I needed to stop. This one does a whole lot more than that, so I am pleased.
I hope all who read my blog, know that I whine in jest. Watching television this past weekend and seeing all the damage so many people incurred as a result of their encounter with IRENE I know they on the other hand have big problems, not piddly ones like I do and are truly justified to do more then whine. My thoughts and prayers are with them.
I will get back to you all soon.
