Post? What Post? Now you see it. Now you don’t.

 

Yep.

It’s my birthday in another  week.

The Princess decided to surprise me with my very own, nifty, new computer.

I’ve never been the “techie” in the family, so her hand-me-down Macs have always been just fine for me.

Yes-Siree.

Getting your very own computer for the first time is pretty special. (And it’s a nice computer, to boot!)

Has a touch screen, lighted key board and a lovely, little, demonic pc operating system called, “Windows 8” – everything an old, menopausal, mentally challenged woman could ever want.

Uh-Hun.

Spent over 10 hours writing out my post for this week on this here, nifty new computer and with one small click of a pinky finger, ten hours of writing, editing and re-writing is now in an invisible cloud somewhere in “PC heaven” and I’m not a very happy little camper today, People.

Not a happy camper at tall.

Thinking that maybe a little walk is the way to go this morning and that life will look a hulluva lot better as soon as the Buddha Belly and I return from our walk.

Che Cazzo!

I’m thinkin’ it’s a better idea than throwing said “nifty, new (expensive) computer” out the window, eh?

As my Mother would say, “Figurati!” (It’s nothing. Don’t worry about it.)

And, of course, she’d be right.

Have a good week, People, and I’ll catch ya next week, looking at life in my shoes from a slightly different perspective, than the one I have today! 🙂

I'm a retired special ed teacher, born in upstate NY, who spent most of my adult life in the SF/Bay Area and moved to the Olympic Peninsula of WA in June of 2017. At the encouragement of family and friends, who followed my silliness on my FB page, I started this blog a few years ago. I try to keep my topics as humorous as possible (because I believe "LIFE" is pretty serious these days), but will, on occasion write about more solemn subjects. I sincerely appreciate all who take the time and effort to read and make comments and am truly humbled when people actually "like" what I write. I do not participate in the "Wordpress awards" because I feel "awarded" when individuals actually read me and comment, but sincerely appreciate all of you who have considered me "award worthy" and thank you from the bottom of my heart. Hugs, Lucie

  1. Oh, the cloud, I hate the cloud. I’ve never lost anything in it because I don’t trust it and never save anything there. I’m sticking to my habit of saving to my desk top and/or hard rive and backing up with an external hard drive everything I write something. I want to know where things are and don’t trust a misty, wind blown cloud I can’t control. I know; I know. Such an attitude dates me, but frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn.

    1. The bitch is that I never sent it to “the cloud”!!! It just sorta went to some magical place that could not be retrieved!!! Wanted to scream or punch something!!! Lesson learned! I’m off to buy a hard drive this weekend! You make me laugh. Thx for the comment! 🙂

    1. I think I need access to a kid – they’re so good/natural at this stuff! When I was teaching, I’d ask my students all the time – helped me out and made them feel competent – was a win/win! 🙂
