Sudden Death

September 28th, 2018

Many of you know that I work from home, which has many benefits. One of the biggest annoyances is dealing with computers. My trusty computer died suddenly this week. Since it’s my main work computer, all my photos were on it. There’s a backup, so I didn’t lose any data, but it’s a big inconvenience for a week until my new computer arrives.

Until then, perhaps you’ll be seeing photos from my phone in my blog posts.

Have you had any big appliance fails this season?

    Yes! Same as you…my computer! What a pain! What did you use to attach your photos, etc. to the wall there above your computer? Not everything I want to display is framed and that looks nice and clean!

    Susy, yes, my refrigerator quite while I was out of town for a week in March. I cam back home to a ugly mess and ruined floor. I’m now in the process of replacing the floor. The new refrigerator was first and sat in the living room for a few days until I replaced the floor where the fridge needed to go. It’s a real inconvenience when our technology fails, don’t you think.

    Have a great computer replacement day.
