Still here, still limping along.....

Pumpkin and I are still here and computer woes continue! I thought the situation was under control when the new hard drive died AGAIN this weekend!

So back to square one....I'm limping along on a 7 year old laptop which was a kick ass computer for it's time but now it's a bit of a dinosaur!

So you don't forget us, I thought I'd post a little something....I found this life experiences meme a while ago and I was actually surprised by how many on the list I've actually done! I hope it's a least a little interesting and if you like it, consider yourself tagged cause I'd love to know about YOUR life experiences!

Glad to hear from you but sorry it's only to tell us that things are still broken. That's quite a list. I am totally anal, though, because the lack of continuity in grammatical structure bugs me. Hee. ;-)

Hey Deb:

We've done a lot of the same things. Next lifetime we'll have to do some of them together.

I thought I was the only person besides Dear Mate that didn't go to any reunions. LOL.
