I'm sure by now many of you have noticed that our friend DB (Vagabond Journeys & Vagabond Tales) has been missing in action. I knew he was having serious computer problems and yesterday I got a second letter from him. He hasn't been able to get online since October 13th and says that so far he's spent 37 hours on the phone and over $200 on attempting to get the problems fixed. He's done everything they've told him to do including buying some sort of new cables. His final words were that he didn't know what else to do until he can save enough money for more repairs or buy a new computer. I feel bad for him because his computer is sort of his life line. Hopefully, he'll back online soon. I'll be sending another note out to him on Monday, I'll let him know we're all still waiting for him to appear again.
It's a beautiful sunny day here in western Washington and in just a little while, I'm going out and use my leaf blower again. Those big old oak trees still have leaves but I'm sick of them all over my porch and in my carport. The park has a riding street sweeper type thing and I don't know why, they haven't come thru the park and sweep up the leaves that are accumulating. Maybe they are waiting for the very last leaf to fall.
It's hard to believe that it's the first of November already. Wasn't it just Thanksgiving and Christmas a couple months ago? There are Christmas displays in the store already and Christmas catalogs are in the mailbox almost everyday.
My son and his fiancee' continue with their March 12, 2010 wedding plans. She even scheduled a manicure for me the other day~it's March 11, 2010 at 4:30pm. She had requested that the two mothers wear dresses within the colors she has chosen. One is a chocolate brown so a couple weeks ago I Googled "brown dress" and found the most beautiful deep chocolate brown dress on sale for $41.00 (regular price was $85). It arrived last week and I love it. Now I just have to find shoes to go with it. I just can't wear anything with much of a heel anymore so am hoping to find some attractive low heeled shoes. Perhaps I should Google "brown shoes."
The picture of the white church in my header is a little church over in eastern Washington. Once I finish the Olympic Peninsula in my travel Blog (http://packyourbagsletsgo.blogspot.com/) I'll move on to our trip to eastern Washington and Roosevelt Lake that we took in September. Eastern Washington is so different than western Washington. We drove for mile after mile thru rolling wheat fields......you don't see that over here.
That's all for now....please don't give up on DB, he'll be back as soon as his computer is either fixed or replaced. Until next time......Linda
