Convention Maybe?

It was a hot day in Dallas, (in October)
when I spotted this group huddled
around the monitor!

Phones and cameras were snapping
shots like crazy!

I'll bet these people were burning up!

Don't they know Rudolph doesn't post his
flight schedule?

LilaOctober 127

The early morning fog was so pretty! The silence called me outdoors to snap a few shots. It hung around until mid morning and then the sun broke through. Another 70 degree day and tomorrow 80!

Those of you that know me well will not be surprised to hear what I have on the agenda for the 80 degree day.... I think I'll mow. Just one more time.  A day outdoors cures what ails you!!

Maybe it will take my mind off my sick computer! I am still taking it to Staples every other day for one problem or another!! Today they installed a new version of IE and it has fixed the current problem.  I have decided if I get infected again the easiest route might be a new system......(not necessarily the cheapest route though)    The tech and I had an interesting conversation today while waiting on the update to install.  He told me HP is now the best system to have, beating Dell by a long shot.  Dell has outsourced to other countries and lowered their quality and HP just the reverse...... food for thought, folks.

Traveling Tuesday

Big D!

As the move gets close for my daughter and family, I managed one more trip to this wonderful city called, Dallas!  On this last visit we took the opportunity to visit The State Fair.  A first for me!

Corn dogs,french fries, cotton candy, ice cream (yes, we tried it all) were delicious. The show stopper was this ear of corn......

Butter bean enjoyed every kernel of this and wouldn't move on until it was all gone! ha

We fed the goats, petted the baby pigs (wanted to take one home), watched the dogs perform and even rode the four wheeler:

Next on the visit was a trip to the Pumpkin Village at the Arboretum. You really must put the Arboretum on your vacation list of places to see. The grounds are manicured to perfection and every season brings such beauty.

Dallas will always hold a very special place in my heart. I have many, many wonderful memories of the city and spending time with my family there. My daughter became engaged, married and had a precious daughter in this city.

And now as they move to Arkansas to start a new chapter of their lives.....guess what? I'll have another wonderful grandchild born in Arkansas....yes, in May!!!! Life is good!

Have a great day all!

Virus Alert

My computer at the office is very, very sick.

I was so impressed with the commencement address Steve Jobs made and wanted to print it to read and reread!!! I googled it and as it printed.....virus attacked!  I think that is just awful!  People with way too much time on their hands wrote such a program.

So I pushed the button:

They removed the virus....I worked with Century Link to log on again, (hours), installed new virus protection, (more hours), restarted computer and BAM, virus attack!!!

Presently pushing the button again!

Warning.....don't google Steve Jobs....and don't print his impressive speech! I'll mail you a copy if you want!
