Thank you for all your comments on my computer problems. 

I did make a phone call to "Computer Patrol" and they will be here 
Monday morning.  
Hopefully they'll be able to get my beautiful new 
MAC computer to fall in love with my work programs.  

To make matters worse...

Internet connections between the good 
old U.S.A. and Afghanistan are not working either!

It's been a few days since the Colonel and I have been able to communicate. 

Oh we keep trying. 

But chatting with him is like talking with someone on a cell phone...
And that person is driving through a tunnel...
And you hear about every fifth word.

No problem, right? 

So we try using the Instant Message and type back and forth. 

Works perfect, right?

WRONG.

When we start "typing" to each other, the connection drops.  

Let's hope things start getting better over here or I will have to rename my blog to...

"Walking on Sunshine With a Huge Cloud Over My Head."

Just kidding!

  1. Oh dear, I hope the connections straighten out soon for you and the Colonel! Modern technology sure can be frustrating at times and I hope the computer DR.'s get everything working for you! Now don't you even think of putting a gray cloud over your pretty lil' head either...!

  7. Oh I love my MAC but it does not work well with most programs. It seems everything works with only Windows.
    I said a prayer for you today. God cares about these issues ~you are important to Him.

  15. I'm going to bite my tongue and not say anything about MACS...used to use them..they make nice doorstops...uh oh I guess I did say something...*laff*

    Hope it all gets fixed SOON! What I don't like about Macs is that it's really hard, out here, to get them fixed, and the geeks do not concentrate on them at all, everything is the PC and Windows, so if you have trouble with software on a Mac, it's SUCH a hassle...
