My old Dell All-In-One powered up and came to life this morning.  It lasted all of 30 minutes maybe before the hard drive decided to crap out and it wouldn’t power up again.  This does prove that only Jesus can raise the dead and a Dell is not Lazurus.

But it was kinda cool there for a while.  I removed the hard drive so I can smash it into a hunderty billionty pieces later on.  This and some other not used any longer electronics are going to the recycle center this week.

A Thought for Easter Sunday

A Couple Thoughts for a Saturday Night

Posted on

I have a new source of frustration.  I can’t crank up the awning for my deck.  The doggone forearm feels like it is twisting and talk about some pain.  Ugh!  Oh well.  My SIL cranked it up for me.  I keep reminding myself that my Ortho PT said I ended uop using my left arm as my primary arm when it just plain wasn’t ready to be a primary arm while my right shoulder healed.  The plus up is my right shoulder gets better and better as time passes.  The downside is I am just so frustrated with my left arm being so weak and non-functional like it used to be.

The gummys and i had a lotta fun working with my indoor herb planters.  The dug up the chives and i helped them separate that balled up mess and they replanted all into a new clay pot.  We’ll see if it works out or not.  I can get a new chives starter from the nursery.  They also planted some sunflower seeds in some new mulch pellets. We worked in the garden beds outside afterwards and rode around on the lawn tractor.  We had lotsa sun and ended up with each of us having a bit of a sunburn.

I’m really loving this heat that we had today.  I’m a sun and warm weather kinda guy anywho and one that keeps asking why I moved to what Miss C refers to as “The Frozen Tundra”.  I don;’t think it really much maters anymore.  I’m here and Spring finally arrived.  It’s time to get busy outside.
