Laptop is Back Home

Friday, June 25

Normally, today would be Fiction Friday but I got my laptop back. Due to my playing around on my ‘Baby,’ I find myself not prepared for today’s posts. I hope to correct this before next Friday.

On Tuesday, my ‘Baby’ made its way home from the Toshiba Repair Center in Kentucky with a complete makeover. Though it worked when I sent it off, some items on the computer did not work the way they were supposed to. Toshiba replaced the ailing parts along with a few others. When I opened the box, I found myself looking at seemed to be a new computer. Yet, my programs came up and ran the way they would before I sent it off.

Now, the UPS deliveryman found his way on my “s--- list” by the way he delivered the box containing my laptop. The box was a long and wide box that would hold a laptop with a 17-inch screen. But it was thin. Instead of bringing it 15 feet closer and placing it on my front porch, he places it on the thin edge across the top of my mom’s truck bed. A strong wind could have sent the box tumbling a good 4 feet to the ground. So happens that I heard his truck and got to my computer before the wind had a chance at it.

Work on my closet is going slow. I discovered that I did not purchase enough lumber for my needs. I will need to go for more next week. I found some corner brackets and flat brackets at my local Wally World. (AKA Wal-Mart). The closet floor is covered with a piece of 3/4-inch plywood. I hope to have the shelves on one side of the closet completed today or tomorrow.

If I get them complete, I shall start looking through my boxes to part with material I no longer need. Some things I found in my stuff were three Southwestern Bell Houston Phone Books, computer magazines from 1989 to 1993 (DOS based books), my old calculus textbook along with several electronic textbooks from around 1980. Do not really want to part with the textbooks but the others I can.

So, that is my week so far. How is your week going?
