A nice cold but sunny day when the sun came up, Donna and I had coffee this morning and then she was off to the truck company, and then the restaurant, Rigg's has a pill in the morning and then one 12 hours later in the evening. I think they are pain medicine. He is a world of difference this morning I guess all the anesthetic is worn off, cause he has that mischievous twinkle in his eye and tons more energy, of course about an hour after getting his pill he laid down and took a nap next to his Dad's chair for about an hour. Then is was a game of tug with his little sister, then while I was eating lunch they both thought they might get lucky and get a scrap, no way, no people food .
Rigg's is sitting watching me eat while his little sister Sadie is standing up holding on to my leg.
It is a slow day around here, I got the hard drive installed and then I put the old one in an external case to use as a storage drive for 40 gig worth of pictures. I ordered it for $19.99 from Micro Center Electronics along with the 80gig hard drive for $29.99 they were ordered online on Monday morning and arrived here by Fed Ex yesterday at noon. The external drive comes with a metal case, and an external plug for power(110volt) and a USB cord to plug into the computer.
The little blue thing sitting on top of the new external hard drive case is a Passport 300gig auto backup drive. It automatically adds or subtracts anything you put in or take out the computer and is a backup if you lose your hard drive. I've had it over a year and I think when I bought it , they were going for about $90. Not bad for insurance not to lose all your documents and with the 300 gig size it also does my picture storage drive.
When we go full time and I buy Donna a new laptop I will get another external hard drive case and put it with the other laptop so we will have picture storage separate from our normal C: that has the operating system on it, it keeps the space use manageable. That way.
I know it looks complicated but it's not and everything plugs in, although I had to buy some 2.0 USB extension boxes, to have room for my camera leads and printers.
That's about it for today. Hope everyone is well out there in blog land. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna.
