Hmmmm, seems like a big furry dog squeaked it's way up onto my bed in the night. That's OK because I don't mind at all. I have a big bed and there's always lots of room for a big old slurpy dog or two:))

Not even a leaf stirring in our quiet forest this morning as I caught glimpses of another fiery sunrise through the Pine trees. Thermometer at 6 a.m. stood at 67F and how nice is that for beginning another beautiful day here in Southwestern Ontario, Canada. When I read other RV blogs about the summer heat and traffic congestion along with crowded campsites and scenic areas it just reminds me how fortunate we are to be where we are, when we are. Boy, have I changed my tune eh:))
OH OH, HOW DID THIS BUZZARD IN OUR SIDE YARD KNOW THAT I AM A SENIOR NOW!! (NIKON D40 AT 200mm)
Another nice morning walk & Evie helped me with some more trail maintenance. We're coming together as a good team. I later needed to check out a couple things at Home Hardware so loaded the Girls in the Jeep & off to Goderich we went.
Just so happens McDonald's is a couple doors down from the Hardware store so figured I might as well slip through the Burrito drive-thru and see how we make out. Motor was in the front seat and Evie was in the back of the Jeep.
I did manage to get one shot off when we got up to the window but I was kinda getting doggy mobbed at the time and missed everybody. A bit hectic there for a few minutes. We didn't do too bad though and we did manage to work out a reasonably responsible 3 way Burrito split on the way home. Both Evie and Motor were really good about sharing with each other & nobody got hurt....not even the driver. Jeeps a mess though!!
Our AMD Sempron desktop computer is about 5 years old and has been slowing down for quite awhile now. We upgraded it with additional memory, etc. last summer but it is barely keeping up anymore. Very frustrating putting the blog together each night as I have to keep stopping and waiting for my keystrokes to catch up. Very, very slow and when we check the properties we can see our aging desktop has run it's course. The old girl has served us well over the years. Because we are down to the bare bones of power and memory we decided we had better make a change before the computer sputters and fumbles any further leading to a crash.
OUR OLD COMPUTER SOMEHOW REMINDS ME OF THE FRANKENSTEIN MONSTER...I SEE SIMILARITIES
Saturday morning our old puter goes in to have everything transferred to a new Lenovo business grade desktop unit with Windows 7. We are familiar with Win 7 because we have had that in our newer Toshiba laptop for the past year & a half. Our older Toshiba laptop will remain with XP. Why a Lenovo? Because the Boss said so:)) No matter to me what make it is, as long as it works well, guarantee is good and we have local tech support. No point in me telling you how many horsepower it has or how many turbo charged ports and cylinders it has either. If it does the quarter mile in 4.7 seconds then so be it. No matter, as long as it gets the job done fast & efficiently......10-4!!
CHOPPY WATERS OFF THE BAYFIELD BEACH (CANON SX210IS)
Kelly is working and Evie is not ready to be left home alone yet so I will load our old computer into the front seat of the Jeep & Evie in the back first thing Saturday morning. Motor will have to miss this trip but Evie & I might bring her back a wee snack to smooth the troubled waters:)) We plan to be at CONTINUIT BUSINESS CORP in Goderich early & then return in the afternoon to pick up the new and ready to rumble computer. Well, it all sounds good in theory anyway, but you know how things go. Saturday night's blog may be very short as I struggle with Frazzleization from trying to get things all hooked up again. I'll know where the power cord goes but after that it's just a tangled Spaghetti Factory for me. And, then there is all the software to install again. Ohhhhh woe is gonna be me:((
