Have you ever had an experience like this? Just at the moment when everything seems to be going wrong and you feel so lost and helpless someone steps in and does something amazing to make it all better. My husband and I had just such an experience with this computer nightmare. He had researched motherboards and processors all weekend and was boggled by the changes in just a year or so. He finally figured out which bits and pieces to purchase and did so from an online store. That's when the amazing part happened. You think when you're ordering online that you're going to have one of those anonymous experiences where you're just another credit card number and if things go REALLY well you'll actually get your merchandise and it will be just what you wanted. Well, the day after ordering the bits and pieces we needed, my husband gets this e-mail from a representative of the company saying we'd like you to call us about your order. He did and found out that while putting the order together, a saavy salesman noticed that the processor and motherboard he had ordered weren't compatible and he wanted to save Terry the headache of trying them only to be disappointed. I can't tell you how much pain this amazing salesperson has saved us! It's so refreshing to have a retail experience where the salesman actually knows a little something about his product and will go out of his way to make sure you're happy with your purchase. We were so elated to have such a good experience
that I wanted to put credit where credit is due. If any of you are looking for computer parts, I highly recommend the service at www.excaliberpc.com. They've renewed my faith in the human race.
Midge and Gidget have become the darlings of the neighborhood. On our morning walk I can be certain as we round the corner of the big apartment building that someone will be waiting with a smile and a "there's my girls!" As the heat of summer brings everyone outdoors in the cool morning and evening air, we've become a tight little community. Miss Midge has discovered the plum tree and will scour for a new hard plum to bring in and toss around. (I dread the day when the plums are actually ripe! Could be a sticky mess!)
Just so you know, I am aware that I've become one of those funny dog ladies and I'm embracing the role with both arms! What a joy to find out that many of you are funny dog ladies too! I'm in great company!
It's been so long since I've posted that I can't remember what I've shown you and what I haven't. Here are the pieces I put in the "blog" file before I got lazy. I'll try to figure out what I haven't shown you and get my ducks in a row for next week.
Until then, keep stitching!
