Then -- I have the computer at our house now. Thank you so much Fran and Bud. You are the best! And, Fran, those jokes are priceless. My husband will help to connect the wires and I have to talk to AOL about transferring their service to the new computer. I have talked to the satellite people and they said I may need to do some configuration after I plug them in. I can call them and they will help with that. I'm a bit more worried about AOL -- I have no idea why. Hopefully, soon, soon I can read your blogs again. I have gotten used to living without a computer, but I miss reading blogs so much and staying connected to my blogger friends and email my friends as well. And writing and taking photos too. I have a ton of photos to share once I get connected.
To answer the Samson question: Yes, Samson does howl, but only if he feels left out or left behind. He's got a great howl, actually. He leaves the protection to Angel and Soldier with their German Shepherd genes and barks when he is happy, excited, and also not so pleased with things. He is the only dog I have ever had who actually goes: "Woof, woof, woof." Sooo cute!
I can't believe how much people talk in the library these days! And now there is a woman opposite me who is talking on her cell phone -- about a complaint, no less. I just told her to shut up and now I'm trying to not get into an argument with her. Ewww!
OK, all is well, I guess she didn't want to make more noise either.
I haven't seen any more turkey vultures and wonder how they are affected by all these windmills. Thanks for the info about them, Rachael. I think they are just wonderful they way they soar in large flocks like that. So beautiful.
For Bobbi: Samson misses Gracie too. He still chews on Gracie No.2. FYI, other readers: Gracie No. 1 is his blogger girlfriend and No.2 is his toy dog -- amazingly they look just so much alike.
Nothing much else to report. I'm off to see if I can find some good books while I'm here.
Have a great day everyone!
I do hope you are out in the blog world again soon. I have missed you!ReplyDelete

Du ar mycket valkommen! Jag alskade idags bilder. Jag vantar mig du att sanda mig din forsta e-post!!
Glad to hear you are doing fine. And that you are getting a computer for home! Yay!!ReplyDelete
I agree about the noise in the libraries. There was a time when it was very quiet, but now there is so much chattering and just plain noise that you have to remember you are in a library and not in a coffee shop.
Ach...cell phones! The bane of my existence! I do use mine, a lot. But I try not to use it in the grocery store, or the department store, or the library! Sure, I'll get calls while I'm in there, but I merely say, "Hold on a minute" and go out to the sidewalk to do my talking, or I let folks know I'll call them later.ReplyDelete
The light in your first to pictures is beautiful!... Oh, and in the third, I love it when you only see the sun shining in some areas. Pretty!
Good luck getting connected. Hope to hear that you are on, at home, soon.
good luck to you and your hubby on getting the new computer up and running! i can't wait to hear from you more regularly again!ReplyDelete
I absolutely love the light in your photos.ReplyDelete
Hello Ingrid! Nice to hear that all systems work...ReplyDelete
Nice photos you show too. In Sweden, here in Bohuslän, we had -2 this morning. So the winter is coming....
But the mornings could be really great then, if you managed to get up that is...:))
Best wishes from your "home land"!
Good luck in getting your computer up and running at home. Sometimes that can be so frustrating! I hope it goes smoothly for you.ReplyDelete
Glad to see you are getting back to a home computer, my new computer (named Baby Hal), has been serving me well up to this point. As far as people on cell phones, it is so bad in this area, people are told they won't be served if they are on cell phones when they come up in line at stores, and our library asks people to leave if they have a cell phone call, in fact, they ask that cells be turned OFF when entering the building.ReplyDelete
Very nice pictures. I have read your blog, your story is very interesting.ReplyDelete
Have a nice weekend
