No Excuse Necessary

I won't have my Mac back until Monday. Maybe. It needs a transplant. Well, maybe not. I certainly hope it won't return to me with a recycled hard drive. It didn't make it to the terrible twos, so it should have a new heart, don't you think? And, although I have photos and mail art for posts, my iPad is not equipped for all the things I do on my Big Mac. Not to be bested, I pulled one of the cards from up my sleeve. Here it comes. I hope you like it.

"Your letters are as good as a visit from somebody nice. I love people who can write reams and reams about themselves: it seems generous." - D.H. Lawrence, 1997.

Hope you have a memorable holiday.

  1. I feel your computerless pain. My MacBook finally went belly up last week and I went about 48 hours without it while the purchase of my new one was being approved by my board of directors and then my data was being transferred from the dead to the living. A mere 48 hours, and yet it felt like an eternity. May your mac get a brand new heart and be returned to you posthaste.

    1. Oh, my. Et tu? Being without is like going through withdrawal. Does that mean we're junkies?

      I lost everything but Apple gave me the damaged hard drive and the business card of a retrieval expert. In Cali.

      Funny thing? After the first 24 hours I turned to other things, and I realized how much I'm missing when I'm with my Mac. I try to Mac less and live a little more so that I can use my Mac more to tell about the things I do. The circle of a half-life. :)

      Glad your rehab wasn't drawn out. :)

  2. I'm sorry to hear about your Mac, and I hope extensive surgery is not required. Thank you for your comment on my post about my son's wedding. He is a wonderful man, indeed, and she loves him with all her heart. That picture of them is so precious, it makes me smile every time I see it. They have decided on no children, though, so no offspring to show it to later in life, but that's ok. They have each other. And the dogs, cats, and chickens.

    1. Thank you, Jackie, but she was gutted. I lost . . . Well, it taught me a valuable lesson. Oh, wait. That's happened before, so maybe I forgot the lesson and had to repeat it.

      I enjoyed commenting about your son and his bride. I've revisited several times before and since. His bare feet and the look on her face make me . . . I feel . . . The picture is precious indeed. I'm almost a little ashamed to witness what's going on. It's akin to peeping. Do you know what I mean? I wondered if I've ever looked at someone that way without knowing it.

      They have enough. They have each other. Everything else is icing, and icing never comes between people. If it does, it gets licked off anyway.

    1. Do you reckon I might wear them out? :) Once before, when the Big Mac went down, two techs came to my home. It was so funny. They conferred with each other like consulting surgeons. Macs are work horses but they do break. I'm back in the saddle again but trying to find original software to reinstall is futile. I get to start over from scratch. :)
