A south Georgia girl who lives on Mackinac island in the summers once said, “Always give the bad news first – it makes the good news even better.”
The bad news is my computer’s mother board video chip is toast. No need to go into long-winded details. Have no idea how long it will be until it is fixed – IF it is fixed. It is probably going to be shipped back to Georgia (where a new mother board was put in back in May – right before we came north). It lasted 3 months – I am not a happy camper.
The good news is today we went to WalMart and purchased a teeny tiny Acer computer like I have been using of my neighbor’s. I am going to attempt to blog from this until I get my laptop back or we buy a new one. This little baby cost less than $300, and a very teeny tiny person is obviously supposed to use this keyboard, which is about the size of a paperback book. Maybe I will get used to it. I did find out that there is a camera card slot on these things (they keep it covered to protect it from dust, and I had no idea it was there).
Right now it’s almost 11 p.m., and Ted just got this one set up and running. You know I love each and every one of my readers, but starting a blog that late at night would not be a good thing. There is just WAY too much to talk about.
So – here’s the deal. On Saturday morning, August 15 – good Lord willing – there will be a new blog up and online.
I CANNOT WAIT to tell you all the news about everything that has happened since we last talked (I mean REALLY talked, not those updates). You will never know how much I have missed having a way to do this.
Love you all, and see you Saturday morning!
P.S. Thanks so much for all the kind comments. They meant so much to me! God bless.
