You would think I would have scads of pics after all this time between posts, but alas, I am getting to know a new computer and the recent pics are on the old computer. The pics will be transferred by the local computer wiz along with some other crap. I am likely in the minority. I have gone from having a Mac computer for the better part of 20 years to a PC. I simply couldn't stomach the cost of a Mac Pro laptop decked out as I would wish combined with an almost ancient operating system. Over the years I have grown to dislike Mac's security BS and changes to my favorite part of Mac ownership, the photo program. So for under a grand I have a brand new Dell laptop with a decent HD 15.6 inch screen, an SSd card, 8GB memory, lighted keyboard and more USB outlets than 3 Macs put together.
So far, so good. As the years have gone by, OS system and Windows have sort of met in the middle.
In other news, a little nice sewing has gone on, some blanket weaving and I have taken one of my mother's cats back to her to enjoy since she keenly missed him and he was making a jerk of himself in his new home. Sigh....cats.
And bigger sigh...horses. Dandy decided to turn up a week ago last Friday 3 legged lame. I could see no swelling nor feel any heat in his leg but he would barely put weight on his left rear foot. The vet did a hoof test and said she thought it might be an abscess working it's way out on the hoof. Soaking, poultice packing and stall rest so by Monday he was walking comfortably. Tuesday was our scheduled farrier appointment. Steve couldn't find anything. We can only guess he might have bruised himself on a rock or ice but he was put out to let nature take its course.
I of course, will be tuning in to all the Superbowl TV festivities. Wishing my Dad was here so we could take bets, drink beer and collectively swear and/or cheer during the game. I'm glad a young team made it, and had the Patriots NOT been the AFC winner I would probably be rooting for the Rams, but once a Pat fan, always a Pat fan, and all you haters can just stuff it! ;-)
I'm hoping to catch up with you all next week with a MUCH better post than this one, but for now...
