I’ve completed installation of all my programs on the new laptop — that is a colossal pain. For now, the computer operates on VISTA so some of the programs won’t run, but some run a little better. The Windows 7 upgrade is ordered. I lost all my email addresses from the lobo.net address (which is home/the laptop). There is probably a way to sync my phone to the new computer — with the phone overriding — so I can get my contacts back. I have a new cordless mouse and keyboard — they even came with digital speakers — WalMart — I checked out all the office supply places then went to WalMart which was $15 less expensive than anywhere else. The printer came from WalMart as well. It’s just a little multi-function model. I do most of the heavy photo/design lifting at the office with the bigger printer.
Tom spent lots of time on the phone with me today and the wireless router is back up and running. Some of its settings had inexplicably changed. They are all back to normal for the time being. Thank you, Tom — and thanks for sparing him, Carolyn.
So, on to more pleasant things. Adrienne was here yesterday. Santa gave her a new RED purse that is her pride. The dogs crowded the garage door to greet her.
Once she’d had a chance to settle in, and the dogs were settled down, she helped me photograph Holmes. It’s difficult to believe he is 14 weeks old. The time has gone so quickly. He’s in a “rumpy” stage, but I still really like this little guy.
He knows how to sulk (like his aunt Molly). Look at that rotten little kid!
