visit from a cousin, and GRRRRRR afterward with the stupid wireless router

One of my cousins, Pauline, is researching the geneology of my mom's (and her dad's) family.  She and her husband came by here to look at some of my mom's old pictures and letters, and I sent a lot of them home with her.  I'm curious to know the family history, but I'm not patient enough to do the digging.  God bless her in her efforts.

Once she and her husband left, I decided to try hooking up to my wireless router.  Sure did sound easy when I read the instructions, but after trying three times to get it to work, I gave up.  My son said it was easy; well, it isn't for me.  I'm not sure what my next move will be.  I wonder how hard it would be for me to contact my grandson's friend, Lee.  He's a real computer nerd; I KNOW he could figure it out.

I love those old pictures!!  They make me think of my mom...  She grew up in West Virginia and was born in 1921, so those pictures look just like the ones I've seen of her.  The clothes, the hairstyles... just everything.

Thanks for sharing them, Donna.. :)

Mosie... I find that often the wireless router problems stem from booting all three systems up in the correct order... First your router from your cable/DSL, then your wireless system, then finally your computer.... Anytime we are having a problem that seems to fix it!

I love the old pictures.  Have you noticed a lot are taken standing beside the house.  I have many like that.  I guess they thought they needed a solid background.
