Piece of Cake – stabbed by the damn fork

I have most of everything back in working order. How wonderful! From chaos and possible death thoughts (for the computer, thinking the final straw would be for it to kill itself and deprive me of the pleasure of stomping it into the pavement after I dropped kicked it through the door of the coach out onto the pavement), all’s well in Linda’s multi-tasking world. Continue reading Piece of Cake – stabbed by the damn fork

My hair is still intact

but the computer’s laying on the floor with giant stomp marks all over, pieces of mother board are stuck in the ceiling, the hard drive is buried in the wall…just kidding. I’m in the after shock of backing up files, setting up a new pc, getting ready to try Fujitsu tech’s recommendation for blasting Windows Vista out of my regular laptop. UGH! What a complete waste of two days. My brain feels hammered. I always have one more pc than I need…just in case. It’s a damn good thing. Back soon with pictures and more life stories and a little poker thrown in for good measure. Anyone in the market for Window’s Vista Ultimate upgrade? Send me an email if you are…*sucker*

An upgrade to windows vista

has me cursing and wishing I’d used a lot better sense. Perhaps if I was drinking wine on a daily basis, I would have used better judgment. I’ve tried to do a system recovery and revert to my old operating system, but alas, I hit a Fujitsu error just as it starts. *beats face into wall* More later when I’ve cooled down.

The House that Ken built – the Family Reunion

Although Ken did build his house – so did Kevin – there’s so much more to building a house than just putting up a foundation and walls with a roof. Although Vicki is very industrious and a large contributing part to the marriage, the house displays mostly Ken’s personality. He’s got a very dry sense of humor and even though we threatened to kill each other when we were younger, we are very fond of each other now. I truly cherish the time I spend with him (even when he’s trying to bluff me in the family poker game :-)). Continue reading The House that Ken built – the Family Reunion

General tramping around – The Family Reunion

For some reason the word cougar surfaced on one of our first hikes. I believe it was Josh and Jenny that aired the topic as we headed off into the woods around Round Lake state park. There was a tinge of trepidation in the word, a sense of ‘are we in danger’ type of thing. Too funny. Sure there are cats out there roaming the mountains, there are some hanging out in the mountains around Vegas. Are they stalking people? NO! In general, they are nowhere near where we are, even in the deep woods. You won’t know they are there unless you see footprints in the snow…yikes…no snow in August. Oh well!

The Kootenai Falls adventure – The Family Reunion

We (Dan and me) started out early a.m. and headed out of Sandpoint towards Bonners Ferry ID (we were about 39 miles from the Canadian border just after going through Bonners Ferry) and then on into Moyie Springs (population 536). I remember some of this area as a kid as I lived in Troy when I was in HS. Kee-rist! That was a long time ago. Continue reading The Kootenai Falls adventure – The Family Reunion

Round Lake State Park

Dan and I headed out of Vegas on Thursday afternoon, around 2 p.m., much later than I originally thought I’d get out of there. The sun was out – a real change from the entire last week where it had been overcast and raining – and it was very hot taking down the coach set up and hitching up. Just after we showered at the bath house in the RV park and pulled out onto Boulder Highway, it started to rain. Continue reading Round Lake State Park
