Technical Difficulties

I can't function without my camera. I can't form a complete sentence for this blog without a picture in front of me. Last Sunday we attended the Indiana State Fair. I took lots and lots of photos. Then spent all night trying to figure out what went wrong with my camera and attempting to revive the photo files that were clearly there just not in the right format. I'm still working on it.

While we were at the State Fair we participated in the Army Virtual Experience and the kid walked away with a free video game. Never mind they'll come knocking on his door in a few years wanting to be paid back. I then spent two days trying to get it to work. I quickly exceeded my gaming expertise and had to call in the big guns. My brother came over and fixed it enough to get part of it working. I'm still working on the rest.

While he was here a very heavily loaded semi truck was passing by and had to slam on his breaks to avoid an oncoming car. Why they even try to get up and down this road is beyond me, but that's not the point. He was transporting a HUGE piece of construction equipment. You know, the kind that have wheels the size of your living room. That piece of equipment broke loose and was about to come careening off when the driver managed to get the truck stopped. Stopped directly between the curves in the road where he couldn't be seen by traffic coming either direction. So we spent about an hour directing traffic. I'll bet he's still cleaning his drawers.

School starts Monday so I've been adding the needed software to the computer. Do I even need to finish this sentence... I'm still working on it.

So today, tired of it all and ready to get back to my chickens and blogging, I grabbed my old point and shoot camera, dusted it off and proceeded to figure out that I have no batteries for it.

I'm going to bed now, I may or may not get up tomorrow.

My heavens! I don't blame you if you decide to stay in bed. Technology...ain't it grand. LOL It will get better, I promise. I can't wait to read about your chickens again. Take care.

I often wonder if all these time savers actually save us any time. We start school Monday too. In theory.

I agree with Marlene. Bless your heart. Enough, already!

Sorry to hear about your camera. I would be tied up in knots!

I can totally relate to your big truck drama. I spent many hours earlier this week driving over those Indiana country roads. Lovely...but treacherous. (I fell in love with rural Indiana, BTW...roads and all.)

I, too, agree with Marlene!

I yearn for old point and shoot cameras. My new digital one takes so long to power on that I miss stuff all the time.
