PLEASE DAD…..CAN I DRIVE THE JEEP
MAYBE WHEN YOU ARE A LITTLE OLDER OK
Not always easy saying goodbye to an old friend. We first met OE back in about 97 & have remained in almost daily contact since that time. OE's departure & sad farewell this morning marks the end of an era for us. I'm talking about Microsoft's older email program, Outlook Express of course. Easy to use, reliable, clean & simple with no advertising. Only disadvantage of course is that it wasn't web based. Other than that we liked the ease of it's filing system & address book.
DOGGY DAYS AT OUR HOUSE
A few last minute things this morning before shutting down our old computer for the last time. Wires & cables were disconnected & soon the computer was sitting in the front seat of the Jeep. A quick walk around the Park Pond with Evie & Kelly headed off to work. Closed the living room curtains so the Motor wouldn't see Evie & leaving in the Jeep & off we went to the computer place in Goderich. Kelly had preloaded a couple of Kongs with cheese & peanut butter to keep Evie busy in the Jeep while I took our old computer into the Continuit Business Computer place. Evie did climb into the front seat but when she saw me coming she quickly hopped in the back & put a big innocent doggy smile on her face. I didn't say anything & just simply told her what a mighty fine girl she was. Same thing when I made a Bank machine stop. Good girl:))
LOTS OF ROOM FOR EVIE IN THE BACK OF THE JEEP
Remembered the Hamburger Grill place where a great bacon & egg breakfast including coffee can be had for under $5. So, that's where we headed. Found a parking place right in front where I knew I could sit inside & see how Evie did being by herself in the Jeep for awhile. Enjoyed my breakfast & was pleased to see Evie taking everything in stride. As expected, she quietly sat in the front seat watching people walking by. No ripping up the Jeep interior & no frantic behavior. It was probably 25 minutes before I left the Hamburger Grill & the instant Evie saw me she scampered into the back of the Jeep with that big innocent doggy smile on her face again. What a Sweety Pie she is. Because she had been so good, I let her ride in the front seat with the window half way down all the way home. I could tell she thought that was pretty swell:))
MY BREAKFAST VANTAGE POINT FOR WATCHING HOW EVIE GETS ALONG IN THE JEEP
Chris at Continuit figured he would have the computer transfer done sometime in the early afternoon so I stayed close to home waiting for a phone call…...for the rest of the day. As expected, there was a problem with the transfer so I didn’t pick up the new computer until about 7:30 Saturday night. I put together tonight’s post on our Win 7 laptop earlier. So, now I will ‘Publish’ this & go wear myself out trying to get the new computer fired up ready to whir, whine, whiz & blink.
THE LAST PARAGRAPH: Only reason there was no Last Paragraph Friday night is because I forgot to write it.
GROANER’S CORNER:(( Life is like a dogsled team. If you ain't the lead dog, the scenery never changes.
