Yippy, My puters back

        I finally got my computer back today plus I also got a laptop that they had reconditioned making it in my price range,( broke), so if it ever happens again I still have one I can use.   What a nightmare.  He managed to save my pictures and word messages.  Now I have to figure out a virus program.  I know Norton is good but so pricey,  my youngest uses a free service but I have to ask him about that.  What is everyone using?

     My oldest son got in today.  50 some pounds lighter, he looks great.  I missed him so much.  My BIL got in yesterday.  Still the same from what I can see so far.  I gave him a list of instructions, showed him where everything was kept and what chores he had to do daily and left him with my MIL, LOL.  I told Betty, if you need anything or this isn't working out, call me. 

   Yesterday a lot of relatives were up from Missouri to visit.  BIL decided it was time to watch his home movies.  Well no one really ever wants to watch home movies, especially when they were here to visit and we were all happily talking away.  But he always has an agenda and that is what he had planned by golly.  Had to do it his way.  So in went the movies and slowly we all snuck out one at an time and ended up outside talking while him and my poor trapped MIL watched the movies.  Who knows, maybe she enjoyed them. I would probably at a different time also when I wasn't visiting.

    My MIL is doing pretty good right now.  I am afraid though she was just holding on for my BIL to get here.  One of our relatives said I didn't prepare them enough for how thin and sick she looked.  Gee, I told them she looked terrible, old and frail. Maybe I am getting used to it.   But she is happy her baby boy is home.  Funny she is the only one and that may change.  He already snapped at her earlier.  Boy did I shoot him a glare.  He is keeping his distance from me as he knows what I think of him.

   2 more nights to work and then I can visit with my son more.  Friday we are hoping to get all the bikes out and go to Adams to ride.  Should be fun.

   Isn't the picture above pretty in a way.  It has a layer of dust from the road giving it a velvety look.

  Well, I am so far behind on work in the shop.  Take care and I am turning on my alerts so I can visit your journals.  Check out the baby Robins, they are getting big.

Glad you are up and running again..and have a spare computer now.  I use Norton, and have for many years.  I've been very happy with the service.

Welcome back!!!!      BIL is a real corker, and you can quote me on that.   Other than AOL's free virus software, I don't think I use anything, and I've not had any problems at all.    That flower is really cool.   At first I thought you had a really special camera to show such detail up close..lol  Duped by gravel dust!

Hi Julie! Welcome back to our world!  I've missed you! I don't know what to say about your BIL.  You seem to have said it all and I hope it goes ok for your MIL.    Poor lady!
Love the flower. I wondered what caused the velvety look on it.....then you told us!  Very pretty!
I hope you get to ride your bikes. That would be fun for you!
Have a good couple more days at work!

I'm glad you're back! Don't you feel so left out when you can't get online, like being locked out of a party! I'm glad your MIL is doing OK. Your BIL sounds a bit pushy to me, hope he doesn't annoy you too much. Jeannette xx  http://journals.aol.co.uk/jlocorriere05/Welcometomytravels/

I am glad that you have your computer back and also have yourself a backup in a laptop. I myself have a laptop but much prefer the destop one. Sounds as if things are about par where Your BIL is concerned going by your discriptions of him. I use Norton antivirus but got it on ebay. Those baby Robins are so cute. No wonder they are growing so much, just look at those mouths. LOL. Helen

Hi Julie, glad your puter is up and running.  I got rid of AOL's McAfee because it wasn't protecting.  I use Trend Micro from Microsoft.  I found it online.  It's $40 a year for automatic updates.  I also downloaded a thing from them call Housecall.  It just scans the whole pc but doesn't protect.  Both picked up things that McAfee totally missed.  BIL is a gem.  Chris

Beautiful flower, cute little birds.  Glad to see you are back online with our computer.  I know it will be interesting with the BIL in town, just hang in there.  Glad to see your son could come and visit, enjoy!  De ;)

Loved the pictures of the poppy and the baby robins. Your BIL sounds like a piece of work, somehow I highly doubt he will do what is needed. I can't believe he snapped at your MIL already, he just got here. I know you could use the break to enjoy your own son being home. Keeping everyone in my prayers on the smoke that things work themselves out. (Hugs) Indigo
