First let me say a belated Happy Birthday to my friend Kyra. I've been so busy concentrating on my own woes, that I've been late with all my birthdays. Shame on me. This was a very special milestone birthday. Kyra is now at the big 60!! Yeah!!!!! This is a very good age my friend. Kyra, I hope your birthday was a beautiful day filled with love and happiness.
It's 1:19 a.m., and I'm sitting here blogging. Crazy, huh? Well, to be honest, I got so sleepy earlier, that I finally just lay down and went to sleep. Unfortunately, that means that I will probably be bright eyed and bushy tailed through the middle of the night. But hey, that's okay. It's just me and Pogo, so it's okay if our days and nights get turned inside out.
Well, I got all my braves gathered up yesterday afternoon, and downloaded Firefox. All by myself! I was feeling pretty good for all of one whole minute, then whammo! There it was again. A bunch of questions about what I should, or want, to do with the program. I unchecked everything, and put in an emergency call to Wayne.
Of course, he forgot all about me, and I had to call him back a couple of hours later. He helped over the phone, and promised to come over Thursday after work, and clear all the extra crap out of my laptop that gets dumped in when you download a program.
The first thing I did was to look to see if my browse box was now available on my blog so that I can upload photos. Yeahhhhhh! It was there! It was after that, that my eyes got so heavy that I had to lay down and go to sleep. All those frazzled little nerves trying to finally unfrazzle.
I felt pretty good until just a little while ago, when I tried to download a freebie. Well, it seems Firefox has done the big no no and taken over the rest of my laptop functions. I downloaded one file, a bit differently I might add. Then the fun began. I spent the next half hour trying to find the newly downloaded file. It was nowhere to be found. I even downloaded it again, but got the same results.
Finally I thought I would check my download file (comes with windows) only to find that this file was also missing. Now what is going on here? I knew I should have waited for Wayne! After much frustration, I finally located my downloaded file, and put it where it should have been. Yeesh! I am just too darn old for all this excitement!
Debby, thank you for that suggestion about using the html. I had thought about doing that, but the way my brain has been going lately, I just knew that I would just dig myself an even bigger hole. I think the better half of my brain has gone on vacation to a nice warm sunny place, and has left me to fitzle along on my own. Not a smart thing for it to do!
I have just finished drinking my Alka Seltzer Nighttime cocktail. Yuk yuk. This is just one of my precautions to keep from catching the dreaded flu. This year seems to be an epidemic year for the flu. I wonder if a lot of folks just did not get their flu shots back in the Fall. If you did not get your shot, it's not too late to get it now.
Speaking of the flu, my friend Nani, from The Chronicles of Nani, landed in the hospital because of the flu. Thank goodness, she is finally back home now and feeling much better. I've missed her a lot.
Enough of my babbling. Here's a cute cartoon that my friend Rhoda sent to me a while back.
Ain't that the truth? If any of you finds the medication bottle that has this printed on it, please please let me know which one it is so that I can buy some too! Although I have to tell you that one day last week, a gentleman did give me a nice smile . I remember thinking "Why the old coot is flirting with me!" Then I realized that I, too, am an old coot. Now how did that happen? lol.
I have a photo to share that I took a few days ago as the sun was setting behind the houses across the street from my house. By the time I ran back into the house and grabbed my camera and got back outside, the beautiful deep colors were already fading. However, it's still a pretty sight.
Gosh, it feels so good to be able to post my photos here. I was really getting worried there, because it's almost time to start posting new freebies. Of course, if I hadn't gotten my browser box back, I would have asked Su to post my previews on her blog, and put the link here on my blog. See? I can be very creative when I have to be. lol.
You know, I think Microsoft needs to update it's spellchecker. I just clicked on it to make sure my spelling was okay, and it did not know what to make of the word "fitzle". Amazing. Doesn't everyone use this word? Or is this another left over from my youthful human days? Hmmm.
On this note I shall leave you. Perhaps I will try to get some more sleep. Sounds like a pretty good idea. So till tomorrow, Y'all have a fabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
