For quite some time, I have wanted to buy a very small laptop. Well, today, in the Best Buy ad, there it was at a great price. It looks like a baby compared to my other laptop. I wanted it mostly for travel. Carrying my other one is just heavy and hard to get out and put through the exray. Fingerprints are going to show up something fierce on it. Oh well.
First, we had a major problem getting connected to my wireless connection. After calling the troubleshooter, we thought we were good to go and not quite true. I cannot get connected to Internet Explorer. We have been having a lot of problems with them but I can't get on at all with this one. My son was here helping and I finally said, ok enough for tonight. He had things to do, since it was his day off, so he went home. Hope I can get it worked out but who knows.

The shams are well padded since we had a backing on them when the yarn was pulled through, now they have yet another backing so they open for the pillow. Thanks Heidi for all you help many years ago, and thank you Eric for your help last week.

"Over the River"
Over the river and through the woods,
It would really be fun if we could go to Grandmother's house like this. Ours is going to be a quiet Thanksgiving this year. My son's Bill and Eric will be here to share our dinner. We will do the entire meal in style though. Are you cooking this year?????

The cute little sheep was a gift from my cousin, who deserted me and went to Florida for the winter. The sheep was from Bath and Body, she said a gift with purchase. Thanks Louise, I love it.

Last November 25th, someone took the life of Sweetie's beautiful daughter. You can visit her blog and see a picture of Sherry. This murder is unsolved, and our family knows what that would be to have to live with. As the anniversary comes near, she needs closure. If all of us pull together, maybe we can help her in some very small way. I tell her daily she is always in my thoughts, and it is very true.
You can click on her blog from my list of friends. Just look for Sweetie. I have found she is a beautiful person.
