In Case I Disappear for a Few Days

Do Not Worry

My computer has been acting up and I may soon take it to Staples for an overhaul.

I do have a laptop but I am not sure I can properly load the Internet connection.  I have the software, but one never knows.  I do get kind of lazy about stuff like this as it means a bunch of disconnecting things and carting things, etc., but if my software keeps behaving badly, I will have to do something.  Theoretically, the laptop should work fine, but theory and practice are sometime elusive partners in the world of cyberspace.

It's to darn hot to do anything anyhow.  I managed about three hours at the picnic, sitting under the shade of a big tree with a breeze blowing before I had to surrender.  As I have gotten older I have become less and less tolerant of the heat and today was no exception.  But the food and company were great, so it was fun while it lasted.

The duet was quite good at church this morning. We do have a recording of it, so it will be interesting to hear it from afar.  I wasn't 100% satisfied with every note I sang, but I am a perfectionist when it comes to that, so it's hard for me to judge fairly.  The congregation gave us a round of applause after we finished, do I guess it must have been good for them.

We sing the duet again at my church this next Sunday, so I get a second go.  It's nice to be able to do a performance more than once like that.  It makes the time and rehearsals worth it.

The Boys are hanging out in the barn again, taking advantage of the fans in the aisle.  There's not much more I can do to keep them cool, but I think they tolerate the heat much better than I do.  Animals cope--I complain.


  1. Computer issues must be going around. I've been having my own issues with that. Things like tiny fans to keep computers cool just do not like the dust that lives on a horse farm......especially when there are as many horses moving around churning up the dust as here. LOL

    Good luck with your puter. If it needs fixing, I hope it's something cheap.

  2. I have some trouble with computers too, luckily my son is an IT guy and he will talk me through troubles and help me out. Half the time I don't understand him anyway. Give the laptop a try, you never know it may work out just fine.

    This heat is miserable I hope it breaks soon. Glad you enjoyed the picnic for a while and were in good voice for your duet.

  3. I agree - that the animals tolerate the heat better than we do, the cold as well. But horses tend to hide their discomfort as we well know.
