Mom's 92nd Birthday and New Laptop
I called Paul this morning. Remember Paul at Accent Marble in Sherman, TX -- the company that is bulding the countertops for my kitchen in Kingston? They have been working on them for several months already, and it appears it will be two or more weeks from now. UNbelievable!!! Since they made the mistakes that screwed up the FIRST set of countertops, and what they are doing now is a make-it-over, and they have already been paid, they are not in any rush. Nothing we can do about it but wait. Thank goodness, I have another home. My kitchen there has no plumbing, no sink and no countertops.
Jerry said I could go pick out my new laptop computer all by myself today (remember mine got stolen out of his truck Monday night). That is a FIRST, I assure you! I guess he knew he could always take it back if I screwed up the task too much. My brother, a computer tech, texted me a short note to get a Lenovo which I had never heard of. Evidently, they were formerly IBM. It has Windows 7 on it, but you can use it with XP also. Jerry was excited about that. Here's a picture I found on the internet. I would have preferred BRIGHT RED, but it only came in black.
Let me say that it took me a total of THIRTY SECONDS to pick this computer out. If Jerry had come with me, we would be out until every store that sells computers is closed tonight! Of course, my brother said to get "Lenovo", and Best Buy had only this one to pick from. Kind of narrowed things waaaaaaaay down for me.
Gotta go. Jerry has taken over the new computer, and I need to fix him some supper. All is good in my world today!
