First things first.
I was going to enthrall all of you with my pictures of my trip to the hamfair. (Which oddly enough, doesn't have that many ham fair photos, but nice photos, anyway. At least I think so.) However, I don't seem to be able to convince Blogger that the photos are on my NEW computer.
Yes, folks, I bought a computer. It was one of those 'it was meant to be' type things. I had enough to cover it, and it is one snazzy thingy. More on that later, except that it's an Acer TravelMate C200, and while it cost a bit more than my Petty ticket, it was WAY less than I could find it anywhere else. Now if I don't drop it or some stupid thing happens, I should be good to go. Literally. Except it is sure a battery hog. Oink, oink... I sort of am superstitious, and with all these things going well for me, I am beginning to get a little spooked, waiting for the other shoe to drop... Isn't that horrible? TRUE, but horrible, none the less.
I also had the in-laws show up 4 days early. So, we shall see what happens. MIL wanted to go walking with me in the morning, then went out by herself because "it was raining, and I didn't think you could walk in that." (Um. I am an Oregonian, not Spun Sugar Woman, last time I checked. Eh. ???) She also wants me to teach her to knit, although she's made it clear she thinks that's only for old people that can't do much.
Hmmm. I try and not follow her logic too closely, trust me, try it and you can start getting amazing whiplash, or a headache. Or even both on some occasions. It's truly a thing unto itself, her logic...
So, the next couple days are getting ready for the concert, and when I get back, I get to take a class for the Sheriff's Office, and it's a "webinar", so I will see how the computer does. I am sort of getting into the swing of how it works, so I am hoping I won't look too much the fool when trying to set up and go.
This trip I managed to meet two cats, one that I kept, play peekaboo with a seagull, listen to music near the beach, take a picture of socks, and some other stuff, that I really want to show you. Hmph.
Watch this spot for further details. Meanwhile, I have to get the animals fed, and get ready to help at the substation. Off I zoom again, I guess. June. Wow. Busy...
Oh, but before I leave, a funny, I am taking a refresher course on my CERT classes, and last night we had to do a full body exam, one on another, I didn't tell the lady about my missing kneecap, to see if she would pick it up. She lightly, feather lightly touched me. I said, well, I think you need to touch a little harder, you didn't pick up my 'injury'. She looked confused, and asked what I was talking about. I told her to check my knees again. She touched my knees, blanched, and said, "OH, SH*T! What is THAT?"
I told her, and she just shook her head. But man, she sure as anything had a reaction to that!
