Hahaha....not what you think. It is the first time in several days I've been able to get on Opera and it has nothing to do with my being a caretaker of a little munchkin during the week. It is mainly due to pc problems. I believe it is the wireless network. Wish I still had my secure, high speed connection like I had in Phoenix. I almost don't want to try to get on the pc anymore because it takes a full minute or more for anything to come on the screen. Or, I guess I should say, upload? Whatever I click on it 'hangs' for over a minute. That's when it DOES finally download to what I'm wanting. Very frustrating and depressing so I just don't go to the pc hardly ever.
Thank you dW for your return email. I read it over a week ago, then the pc kept going off line and I couldn't answer you.
It was hot and humid here in Fargo the last couple of months. Almost felt like home....except for those darn mosquitoes and the tornado sirens. The sirens went off three times July 4 evening. We could see the huge thunderhead clouds coming closer and the lightening. We were on the deck watching some of the fireworks the first time the sirens went off. We gathered all the dogs and ourselves and went down into the basement. What was funny, sort of, is that we could still hear people letting off the fireworks. Must have been the locals who don't bother with sirens.
Now it's been a nice, breezy 75 on average. That I don't mind at all because it is cool enough to keep the swarms of mosquitoes away. But one or two will still get to you somehow.
Mia is growing like a weed. She is so much fun. At 17 months, would you believe, she is driving! LOL!
There are more photos I'd love to show you but I'm still unable to get my new printer/scanner to work. I have a feeling I must have Windows 7. Soooooo, I think I'll give the new printer to my daughter who gave it to me and just take their old one. An old printer will go better with an old pc I think. If I don't get it to work, I think I'll start having all my photos put on a disc rather than printed out. That way I can at least get them in my photo folder.
Here's another of when her parents took her to the Fargo Zoo while I was in Chicago in June.
Now here is what I was treated to for my birthday in June. My daughters bought me a ticket to Chicago. Suzy and her boyfriend took me to his lake home. Very beautiful and relaxing.
p.s. The only way I have the above photos is that I'm getting them from my daughters' FB pages. I'll do my best to get back here to respond. Just not sure how the pc will be.
