I'm Alive

Well, it's been over a month again, but yes, I am alive!!!  My computer had a meltdown, or so I thought. You all should know that I'm computer illiterate, so when it crashes I toss my hands in the air and holler, "HELP!"  I have used the same computer guy ever since my first computer. The last few times it has had problems he has been in California. Same thing this time! Someone at church recommended someone else to me and I took my computer to him. He got it fixed fast and was MUCH cheaper than the guy I had been using. So now I have a new computer guy!

Blogger has changed the looks of things. Hmmmmm..... I'll have to try and figure it out. Remember...illiterate! I don't see anywhere to post photos....hmmmmm.....No photos this time folks!

What have I been up to you wonder???  Well, not much really, just life things. The usual things. Housekeeping. Fighting cobwebs and puzzling over where all the dust comes from. Taking care of my husband. Last night he called for help and I went in to see what he needed. He said he needed "Attention." I asked him what kind of attention he needed. No response. I asked again and got no response. So then I stood up very straight at attention and I gave him a salute! That did get a smile from him! It was finally determined that he didn't know what he wanted. I told him to just try and relax and think relaxing thoughts and go to sleep. He did. Well..I don't know if he had relaxing thoughts but he did go to sleep!

Ohhhh...I do have a new great nephew. He was born last week and came into this world weighing in at 11 lbs. 9 ozs!  Needless to say some of his newborn things will not fit that big fellow!! I was surprised at his weight but shouldn't be really. His parents are both 6 feet tall. I have not gotten to see him in person yet. Only photos! He is cute and very alert!

The other day I was eating at one of our downtown restaurants and I had a piece of pecan pie. I can't recall the last time I had a piece of pecan pie, so it was really delicious.

A friend of mine had one of their barns go up in flames on Saturday. It was the biggest barn on the farm and had all the hay stored in it to feed the cattle this winter. It also had their biggest, best, and newest tractor, as well as a hay roller they had gotten last year in it. Luckily no one or no animals were hurt. The fire marshall is investigating to try and determine what caused it. She was very upset but also grateful that no one was injured, as material things can be replaced. I go buy meat from them since they raise their own beef. It is so much better than what I buy at the grocery.

Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay
My, oh my oh what a wonderful day!
Plenty of sunshine heading my way
Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay!!

Just thought I'd best check in and let you know I'm among the living! Ya'll come back now, ya hear?
