Having no computer is no excuse!!!

My home computer is toast, thanks to an electrical blink 4 weeks ago. John is trying to fix it and it's taking an eternity! Add to that, my computer at work is also toast, thanks for a software glitch that crashed my hard drive. Someone mentioned they might be ordering me a plastic bubble to live in if another computer goes south. Needless to say, I'm gunshy around electronic things this week! I'm at work, at the front desk, and they are trusting me to use the computer there....hah! Silly people!

Fall has fallen here in the Ozarks. John and I were looking out the window toward our grove of trees on the north this morning...what should calmly walk out but two male deer with beautiful antlers (albeit small ones). First time I've seen antlers on the deer on our property.

Gilligan is now a gentleman! He had his surgery yesterday and is walking a bit drunkenly and gingerly but at least he gets to live inside for the next 5 days. He currently lives in our bathroom and bedroom...sleeping during the day on the dogs' pillows near our bed...drives Carson nuts to smell a cat on his pillow at night...not sure where that cat is! Haha - cat is sleeping in our bathroom, behind that closed door!

Happy Thanksgiving to all our family and friends. We miss you all! Hugs,
Sally, John, Carson, Briscoe, Gilligan, Ruby, Tippy, and Huevo!

Remind me when you get here to have you avoid our computer... we'll quarantine you off... "Uh, Mom, how about you let me use the microwave, "Hey, Mom, I'll go ahead and open the fridge for you." "Oh, hey mom, don't touch the remote, why don't you give that to Dad... he probably knows how to use it better than you do anyway, it's kind of programmed into our blood stream." Come to think of it, this whole electical items thing seems to be working out in your favor - you have an excuse to have people be your slave. Let's rethink this - are you sure you didn't break those things on purpose?
