New Computer

In my last blog I mentioned that my HP computer had died.  Well I tried everything, even put in a new HDD and the computer would not even recognize the new one.  So, I figured that it must have been something other than the HDD like the motherboard or memory.  I put the computer away for later giving it to Goodwill or something like that.

Beautiful Weekend

Up at the Northern Neck for this beautiful weekend.

Susan is in Charlottesville helping Jenn with the kids.  Tom had to go to Dallas to work on Wed.

Beautiful day here in Heathsville.  Lots of birds singing out in the trees.

I love sitting out on the deck in the hammock. I have to be careful and not stay too long as I'll get a sunburn.

Well, it has been one full week since I got that damn norovirus.  I am still not feeling 100%  I'm having lots of trouble with vertigo.

Having trouble getting motivated.  I have the mound of bills to go through from being away over New Years week and being ill.  I also need to start to order the parts for Tom's computer.

I called Tom to ask him for more specifics about what he wanted on his computer. He told me that he had changed his mind and I could forget it. Wow! I'm so glad. I know I could build him a great computer but did not want to worry about follow up.

Computer Died

Sept 1, 2012

My 2 year old HP laptop has been acting up for the last few days and this evening it froze up completely with an indication of it being a HDD problem.

This is the second HP laptop to bite the dust in just a little over two years.  No more HPs in this family!

When I pulled the HDD and placed it on the desktop, I was able to see the three partitions and was able to save my files and photos.

Mom is still in the hospital. Susan say that they will evaluate her again today to see what happens with her breathing. She may come home with O2. The cardiologist said that she has severe aortic stenosis. Nothing is going to be "fixed" do to her age.

I went to LAFB today to drop off an Rx and pick one up for Susan.

I wish I could remember to do this more often.

My feet have been killing me! First it was the heal - with the bone spurs. Now it is the ball of the foot area. Doctor say the condition is called Morton's Neuroma. It is very painful and unlike the bone spurs, it is with me 100% of the time. I have to walk down the stairs on my heals. Yesterday the doc injected my left foot with about 10ml of stuff. So far hit has not done any good. Next step is a small incision in the area and a cold prob goes in to "deaden" the nerve.

Hampton's 400th Anniversary celebration starts today. Just so happens it coincides with the annual Black Beards Festival. I am going down today to listen to the CalypsoNuts.

Jenn and Tom arrived yesterday and they brought Billy Rae and Miley.

Eric and Elizabeth came and we had a big dinner.

Tom played Blazing Aces on Wii and surpassed me within two hours!! I will have to work on that game.
