Big Horn National Forest


Today didn’t go exactly as I had planned.  I wanted to get up early and take off for the Big Horns again, but the little computer Gremlins were at work, so I spent a lot of the morning trying to fix my computer.  The easy part was when Rick sent a comment and told me how to fix my LW problem. He is such a blessing to me.  Has saved me a lot of trouble. 


The other problem came up on the dreaded black screen.  It read something like “Check Disk needs to review files”.  Something about the volume being messed up with one of the downloads I had done.  I pretty much just went to the control panel and tried to restore it, and set it up so it would run next time my computer got turned on and it would fix it automatically.  So, I restarted the computer and it did what it said it would do, but it took over 2 hours, so I was kind of in limbo for that time.


Next time, it started just like it always has.  I just bought this computer in June, so it is all new to me, although I really do like 7, I haven’t learned it all yet.  It is an HP Pavilion Entertainment PC Laptop, so has a lot of stuff in it that I will never use.  The reason I bought it is because it has a much larger screen than my last one.


After I got through messing with the computer we still wanted to go back to the mountains one more time, so we hopped in the truck and took off.  It was really nice today, only 59* up on the mountain.  Here, it has been nice too.  78* for a high today.  I took a few pictures and will share them with you.

I talked to my best Buddy this morning and she got the best news possible.  After her results on her bone marrow test came back, she DOES NOT have Leukemia.  This is why I don’t have very much confidence in Doctors.  They put her through hell for weeks, telling her she did have Leukemia.  Don’t get me wrong, we are all so happy, you just wouldn’t believe.  This is Herb’s Birthday (my little brother) and he said he couldn’t get a better present.  She is Herb’s wife and my sister in-law.


Wanted to thank everyone for advising me to start going to produce stands and Farmer’s markets.  I am going to keep my eyes open from now on.  There are lots of them in Indiana, where we are from, but I haven’t seen a one here.


That is it for today.  We have no plans for tomorrow.  Probably wash the truck and catch up on the laundry.


Stay safe….  :)

Glad the doctor was wrong about your sister-in-law's problem. It must have been very scary. Scary too when your computer acted up! That would give me a few extra gray hairs. Good thing it's back to normal.
