What a great ending to the day, if it has truly ended. I plan to move to the lake for the summer next week. Unlike previous years, I am going to have cable installed so I can use the computer during the summer. No, not so I can watch football next falll. WHY WOULD YOU THINK THAT? Yes, the NFL exhibition schedule came out today but who noticed?
I wanted to write the family history this past winter. When my computer crashed for over a month and my left hip acted up, writing fell by the wayside. I was unable to blog at all for the entire month of February.
My stepson, Randy, installed the computer I am now using. It is a bit different from my regular computer but I've used it to get by. I plan to take my regular, repaired and upgraded, computer to the lake with me so I need another computer at home. Randy Lee wished me a "happy birthday" and said this computer is mine, although he does need to swap out one part which he says I'll never use anyway.
What a charitable, and timely, gift? I have a spare printer as Randy and his sister, Jackie, gave me an advanced printer for Christmas, advanced like in I don't know how to use it yet. Supposedly it will brush my teeth, er, something like that. It sure prints nice. My old printer works just fine and I'll take it to the lake.
Hey, Grandson Jon, got a rusty, working monitor for a destitute old codger. Anything flat schreen, over 19 inches and thin will do. No, No! I didn't really say that, did I? I gotta be nice to Jon, he is going to do some electrical work at the lake for me. Un Huh! Of all Mark's children, Jon is my FAVORITE grandson out of the whole pack! (Well, yes, he is the only boy).
This has been a great birthday, capped off with dinner with my pretty bride of 30 years at the Longhorn Steak House, my favorite. Thanks to one and to all.
Uh, MARK YOUR CALENDARS, THE GOOD LORD WILLING AND THE KRICK DON'T GET TOO HIGH, I'LL BE 80 IN A SHORT 12 MONTHS. You won't want to miss it. UMMMMM
