I'm back yet again

My number one computer suddenly refused to boot up for me, and after the third attempt, it more or less told me I wasn't getting any more tries.  So, I'll have to find a trustworthy hospital for it.  My daughter suggested I simply reformat, but I'd lose a lot of precious stuff if I did that.

I have this spare computer, and figured it would be child's play to put it in here temporarily, hook it up, and scarcely miss a beat.  Alas, it wasn't so simple.  The cable man made it out today and got me back on line, so life is at least halfway normal.

We sold a Farmall M tractor earlier this week, and a man is on his way now to pay for Allis; these two sales together will make up a big part of the price of the Gold Wing.  Cliff will deliver Allis to her new home in the next day or two. 

We've taken a motorcycle ride almost every day this week, and I've had a couple of nice long horseback rides.  Life is good, in spite of a couple of Internet bumps in the road.

Mosie!  Yaaay!  You're back!  I really did miss you, but I honestly thought that you and Cliff had taken a little trip on Lightening, and so I didn't worry too much.  Sorry about your computer.  I hate when mine goes down, because it's like my best friend sometimes.  Sad, but true! lol
At any rate, I'm glad you're back!!  I missed you!

And here I thought you were just out enjoying the fall weather on the new bike. Sorry to hear about the computer... I just recently backed up all of my newer digital pics off of this computer. I try to do it often enough that my loss would be minimal if I crashed.... but, like all things I don't do it as often as I should! Hope you find someone who can save your stuff!

Life is grand !  I'm home from my day with the kids that are camping and it was a beautiful day !  Isn't it frustrating when those computers don't work !  I feel like I lost an arm or some part of me... Hopefully you'll get it working without loosing too much !  'On Ya' - ma
