Just One Thing After Another

I was on line this morning...then logged off AOL while Bob & I went and had buffet lunch at a nearby Casino (no I didn't gamble).  After that we stopped at a couple garage sales, then he went to Wal Mart...I sat in the car with the AC going.  I came home,tried to log on and got nothing!  The monitor screen was blank, the PC was powered on so I turned it off hoping it would re-boot the unit.  Then it wouldn't turn back on. So after sending Robin a text message (like she could help me all the way in Florida)  I put out a frantic call to my son in law & grandson and after their dinner they came over. They tried in vain to get it to come on.  So they finally disconnected the millions of wires & cords going into the back of the unit and we hooked up my laptop.  Monday morning, I'll be at the P.C. repair shop and hopefully it won't cost me an arm & a leg.

My intention was to show you all what I got at the last garage sale ~for free.  The nice lady there even helped me "gather it" together.  I have pictures and will show you, when my computer is back in working order.  

It was very warm here today, too hot !!!  But don't let Bill know I was complaining...ok?   

So that's what's going on here....it's hot & my 'puter is broke. It's a sad state of affairs.

I had alsmost the same thing happen last night when I did an entry! I got kicked offline and AOL refused to open for me. After a frustrating half hour I added a new location for my broadband and it worked. Computers are such temperamental things. If mine goes wrong again I'll get rid of it! Send that heat over here, I want it! Jeannette xx

Linda, gald to see you aare enjoying some summer heat.
My computer went on the fritz on Thursday. I tried for three and a half hours to get it back on line and finally gave up. Of course I had disconnected all the connections and reconnected them. Drove me nuts and I lost sleep over it. Powered up the next day and did a restore and all was fine since. I suspect that Verizon had a down time or was revamping their programs. Wish they would let me know when they are going to do that.
Only had tow problems with them in three years so i guess I should not complain, Bill

Don't you just hate when that happens?????  At least you have a back up.  We tend to go into withdrawels when the puter is unavailable.  Hmmmm.  That sounds a lot like an addiction...lol.  Hope it doesn't cost an arm and a leg.
Hugs, Joyce

What is going on with the weather, I got told it was almost 100 in Portland? Yeeks...seems like the heat followed my son from Florida up there. You all do not have air conditioners either do you?  Hope your computer woes get fixed soon I hate that when that happens...try to stay cool...love, Sandi

You are fortunate to have a laptop. I don't have one, so if my computer breaks I'm SOL. Hope you get it fixed and it's not too expensive!

Oh dear, hope you are able to get it fixed soon and that it's not too costly!  I could not live without my computer now.  I have come to rely on it far too much I think!

How frustrating for you, I hope they can get it repaired for you quickly and you are up and running again.  Sounds like you made out good at the yard sale!
