Yikes ~ Missing My Computer!


Usually my computer and I are at loggerheads
over its refusal to do what I want it to do.





But this time my frustrations 
are entirely my own fault!

No I didn't lose my power switch.
I lost my computer!

Actually, I left it behind on a chair 
in the Fireside Kitchen at the Ameristar.
Arrggghhhh!!!!!

And realized it as we pulled into the driveway
after an hour long drive.
Arrggghhhh!!!!!

Fortunately, Ameristar Security has it,
and is Fed Ex-ing it back to me
the slow way.
I didn't really want to spend $150 
to have it delivered overnight.

It took Security some time to search in their warehouse
to find a box that fit, but finally Security did!

In the interim,
I've managed to get my old Mac up and running
with its way behind operating system.

And of course, my backup external drive,
along with my car keys and house keys,
are in the briefcase with my computer.
Arrggghhhh!!!!!

That means no photos either ~
or at least none newer than 16 months ago.
Arrggghhhh!!!!!

I never do anything half way!

I've got to go overboard!
That's what the Ever-Patient calls me:
Overboard Louise!

Just letting you know,
in case you happen to notice
I'm behind on visiting, commenting, and posting.

    1. Hey Linda! It's amazing how many kinds of cat cartoons there are. And Grumpy Cat was on American Idol this week! You have to laugh to get through life. That's one reason I enjoy your Laugh Gags so much! Take care!

    1. Hi Ron! I think Terry would like me to lose it ~ but he's worse. Our friend Jon from San Diego showed me a new game online where I can earn comps in Vegas just by playing. Terry is now sneaking on my computer and playing it. Another time-suck! I hope you are feeling better and better every day, my friend! Can't wait to see you!
