Our 4th of July~Finally

I did get my computer back Friday evening. I'm having some issues...the printer won't work and the only way I could download pictures was to put my memory card into the printer/scanner.  It wouldn't work by attaching the cord from the printer to the camera.  And I'm getting an error message on one of the programs they loaded.  Apparently AOL's virus protection leaves a lot of garbage behind so they cleaned that all out and installed Nod32 anti virus protection.   It will take awhile to get used to the regular keyboard and monitor, again.  My entire laptop is not much bigger than this LCD monitor of mine.  When I first powered it up & the AOL Welcome screen came up, I wanted to move back about 15 feet...everything was so big.   I actually got a headache after about 15 minutes so I turned it off for the night.

I've included some pictures from our 4th of July day & evening.  Linda

It doesn't matter what you do with a computer Linda, it always involves lots of trials, tribulations and headaches!!!  Loved the pictures of your 4th celebrations.  What a lovely looking girl Meghan is!

Great pics!  TY for sharing.
Hate to hear you're having such trouble with using the computer, call & have them fix the issues for you.
When I unhook mine & rehook everything is large too, but Gdtr came down & fixed that in a couple mins.
Hugs,
Sugar

Cool pics!
I thought Meghanne was a grown woman (like married with kids or something)!  Didn't realize it was grand daughter Meghanne!
So, did you finally have an elephant ear?  I have never had one, either.
We are always "Warm" at work; even in kennel room A...one of my fav's, too.

Was life Easier when we didn't have computers? Something is always not working right.  My printer is not taking the paper.  Gotta keep my cool and work on it.  Elephant ears are so good.  Real light pastry, the kind that crumbs all over your shirt when you bite it.  We call the smaller ones Pigs Ears. Enjoy your weekend.              Marlene

I enjoyed the photographs and now wished I had spent part of the day at the Freedom Fair.  I was determined to get my work done first and I did before we had to leave for the "sailing".  Next year I'll have to go down there for sure.
