Short post today

Had the usual morning coffee, and then Donna headed off to the truck company, she will have a long day as she does a shift at the restaurant tonight. Sam had his usual 3 month checkup, everything was fine and the doctor was pleased with all the numbers, so he is good for another 3000 miles or 3 months.

After putting it off for a long while we bit the bullet and decided to get a laptop, Sam went to a computer store near home and they had a low mileage Dell Latitude, with 1.6gig speed and 1 gig of ram and a 40 gig hard drive for the mere sum of $275.00US. Since it came with an XP operating system which is what we are both used to and we can transfer our programs right to it, it was decided to buy this now and then when the house is gone and we are set to hit the trail we will buy a new laptop with all the bells and whistles and this one will become the backup.

Sam is happy because he will take it with him on trips and when he has a stop at a motel without computers for guests he can still check his mail and update the blog and read blogs. It’s gonna take a week to wipe the smile off his face, even though he was 3 hours transferring the needed programs such as Office, Live Writer, Picasso, and a couple others that were deemed necessary for survival.

The weather is again gorgeous and is supposed to reach into the 80’s, today and be mild for the rest of the weekend. Maybe I shouldn’t have said anything or we’ll wake up with snow Easter morning.

Rigg’s is a happy camper as he has been getting to run outside with the nice days, When Adam gets home from school he will be even happier. That’s it for now, Be Safe out there. Sam & Donna.

PS. Tammy were supposed to have a nicer and warmer day here than in Gulfport, Hope it lasts.


  1. Oh it's great to have His N Hers computers!

    Since we redid up the daughter's old laptop for Steveio, it's been HEAVEN for me! No more clogging up the cache with a zillion images and pages from him browsing Ebay and Craig's List... and no more strange viruses in MY computer cause he clicked on a box that told him to click on it.... LOL
