Dear Lake Blackshear and Mackinac Island Blog friends. Here’s the deal. It’s almost midnight. I have been in Albany all day – doctor’s appointment, bank, Office Depot, drugstore (twice – don’t even ask), the printer’s, Kohl’s (trying to find some jeans that will fit and not sit so far down my hips that they fall off), two assisted living facilities to watch therapy dogs work, and last (but certainly not least) the computer store. Oh yes, they called to say my computer was “fixed” – again. And I could pick it up. So I did.
It’s too late to go into detail, but suffice it to say that IT IS NOT FIXED. Ted and I have spent the last five hours trying to GET IT TO WORK. I can’t access any of my stuff – no email, no facebook, no blog (I am writing this on my little notebook we bought in Michigan). I am mad, frustrated, upset, and basically ticked off. And now that we have finally convinced ourselves that it’s not going to work tonight, I haven’t even begun a post to this blog (well, actually I HAVE begun one, because you are reading it). I know you will understand when I tell you I do not feel inspired to write anything worth reading tonight. So – I’m going to just close this little notebook, go jump in the bed with a book (because I am so wired there is no way I could fall asleep right now), and pray that in the morning my guru in Atlanta (who is also my friend with the cooking blog-Lana) can give me some words on wisdom to kick start that dang computer into working again. If she can’t, there is a very good chance it’s going to be at the bottom of the ri’vah by 10 o’clock Friday morning!
I will try my best to post something later in the day on Friday. I do want to tell you about the visits with the therapy dogs – totally cool. Sorry you had to listen to me vent – just think what a fun night Ted has had!
By the way, the header is from my trip into Albany this morning. We call that stretch of road “deer alley” because so many vehicles have hit so many deer there.
