I only called the computer place 3 times today. LOL They have a remote entry(?) button, so if I give them permission, they can take over my computer. So they zip around with their cursor, as I watch, and talk me through how to find everything.
Tonight I realized that I can't find any of the folders in Outlook Express--folders where I have saved e-mails. I'm sure it is there and will call to find out. Not tomorrow though--I have lunch with the Old School Gal Pals, and a visit to The Farm and a stop in to see Pammie. Today was her birthday.
That second baby of mine (born on my Dad's 43rd birthday) was born smiling and she hasn't stopped yet. Even with her problems, she just stays happy.
This morning I got one of those IRS scam phone calls. Now, I have caller ID and I do not answer the phone until it has a name I recognize. These scammers are now using the area code and the first 3 numbers of our telephone exchange. That way, you think it is someone local calling.
So I let it go to the answering device and then listened when they hung up.
Something like, "The IRS has issued a warrant for your arrest. They are watching you and your activities and will arrest you and take away all your possessions. You have to call this number back and......................"
So I talked to myself. They are watching me and my activities? Should I draw the blinds? I have to run into Brighton this afternoon. Are they going to arrest me while I am filling the car gas tank? Perhaps an embarrassing arrest while I am in the yarn section at Michael's?
So, after watching my Soap, I jumped in the car and headed into Brighton. About a mile down the road I glanced into my rear view mirror and there, behind me, was a blue Michigan State Police SUV. It just cracked me up!!! I said to myself, "It must be my time." Then, of course, in town they turned off on the entrance ramp for the expressway that would take them back to Lansing.
It seems I always have some adventure, even if it's only in my mind) when I get in my car to go to either Brighton or Howell.
When I got to Michael's and walked the 107 steps way to the back of the store to the yarn section, I pondered on why this section wasn't at the front of the store and the kid's things at the back. It is mostly older folks who do projects with yarn or embroidery floss and some of us have bad back, hips and knees. Anyway, I had a nice walk totaling 280 steps from car to embroidery floss and back to car. JoAnn's store is set up the same way. I think I'll write to Michael's corporate office and tell them of my suggestion.
