Long, long day today!
I volunteered at the Stuart House until two and got to meet a few more blog readers! I love, love, love it when ya’ll come by!
After work I sprinted (walked very fast) to catch the 2:30 Shepler’s to Mackinaw City, then drove to Cheboygan with my sick laptop. Someone had recommended Hiper Computer Repair to me, and that’s where I left my computer for surgery. Seems there was a glitch with Windows 7 (imagine that), and it’s going to require a little rehabilitation. I really, really liked the people in that shop. They didn’t make fun of me when I called all the parts of the computer “thingys” – in fact, they kept asking me to say stuff over and over again. On second thought, maybe they WERE making fun. I really don’t care though – if they’ll just fix it before I go blind, I’ll talk Southern to them all day.
My laptop will probably be ready by Wednesday, but it might be Friday before I get back to Cheboygan. Maybe I can put up with this little baby keyboard and screen until then.
Ted Gets a Camera
When Ted returned from kayaking that first day, he walked in the door saying, “I’ve got to get a camera so I can take photos from the water.” So he went to the Cheboygan WalMart and bought a camera (less from $150, 12 megapixels). Perfect except for one thing – NO VIEWFINDER! Anyway, he hasn’t taken it out on the water yet, but he did take the next two photos, and they came out great! Hmmmm . . . watch out, Jill, he’ll take your job!
Ted and I are going to St. Ignace tomorrow to pick out new flooring to replace what our leaky dishwasher messed up. Oh dear. Ted and I shopping together. I better go practice up on my silly names.
See you tomorrow!
