Anybody Want My Mouse?

April 6, 2009

Today was rather wet, actually very wet - windy and rainy. Lots of rain! My little plants are quite water logged, the yard is full of large puddles, but the ducks are happy. I suppose that's all that counts.

I did get a few little things accomplished on the computer though. Not much, though I'm getting tired of fighting with this stupid mouse. I go here - it goes there. I move it - it sits put. Nice little invention. And I really must get my nails chopped off. I have to re-type over and over to get rid of all the unwanted letters that get typed along with my words.

I do have a picture to share with you today. It's not a great photo, but interesting. Last night as it was getting dark outside, the deer came out into the field way across the road. It was time for dinner I guess. I grabbed my camera and rushed outside. Had to stay close to the house so the deer wouldn't see me. Needless to say, there is a bit of blur in the photo, but still you can make out the deer.

Along with my new camera, I think I need to invest in Image Stabilization lenses. My hands just aren't as steady as they used to be. Don't know why, but that's life. Anyway it's a great excuse for Meema to buy herself some new goodies.

So, Wayne came by yesterday to fix a few things on the PC. We decided that my laptop could be updated to a bigger hard drive - 360 GB, so we ordered one for me. Also some more memory - up to 2 GB. When he's done, it will be as good as a new laptop except that I will still have my XP in it. Thanks for that little blessing.

Tootsie has been so good these past few days. I keep taking breaks to play some ball with her, maybe that's why. She brings such pleasure to all of us here.

That's all my news for today. I need to get my creativity level up again, lots to do. Y'all have a great night.

Hugs, Edna B.

Hi Edna! Like the music! It's the same artist who sings Laura on my blog! :D

We had that rain last night! We got a little in the basement, but thankfully not like last time! The kitties haven't been run out of their bathroom!

From what you describe about the mouse, it almost sounds like a wireless mouse with a dying battery. Mine does that when it wants new ones, gets a mind of its own!

Love the deer pic! we don't see them much here, once in a while, but there aren't a lot of city deer!

Give Tootsie a scritch for me!! :)

Hmmm, perhaps you should really try my computer spell LOL! What about your mouse??? I had such a one too. Then I bought myself a wireless one from logitech! GREAT. I love that thing! Typing the wrong letters?? Hmmm. I know it. I have SHORT nails, but happens to me very often too. I think it has to do with the new keyboard. Oh well,as long as we notice it isn't so bad yet. Means at least the mind works still rather well.! Have a great day! Hugs

LOL. I have the same problem with my nails! I still haven't cut them off. Maybe, I'll go do that. LOL

Love the deer. There is a highway, not far from me, where, after dusk, the deer come out in droves. I used to have to take that way home when we lived out in the country. I counted 13 or 14, once, in about a 2 mile distance. They aren't afraid, either. People have to watch for them as they come right up to the road side.

Like Nani said, if you have a wireless mouse, it may need a battery. I had the terminal pulled too far forward one time and the wireless mouse wasn't working. You would not believe what all I tried before I realized the terminal was 'blocking' the signal from the mouse to the USB stick. LOL

I enjoy reading your blog. I should get busy! Yeah! Right! LOL
