~ Rain ~ D*mn Computers! ~ Smokin' Good Steak Dinner ~

Good 38º morning! 
♪♫•*¨*•.¸¸    WE'RE HAVIN' A HEAT WAVE....♪♫• A TROPICAL HEAT WAVE......  ♫•*•♫♪ ♪♫•*¨*THE TEMPERATURE'S RISIN'...•.¨*•♫♪ IT ISN'T SURPRISIN....... ♪♫• SHE CERTAINLY CAN, CAN CAN!♪♫•*¨*•.¸¸¸¸.•*¨*•♫♪
Yesterday it warmed to 55º. The sun was out.
Nice day, but still on the cold side. Windy.
After I took this picture I looked up the hill and my
neighbors Gerard, Maria, and Shiloh were taking
a walk along the fence line. After I snapped the
picture, Shiloh turned and looked, I waved,
and she sat down facing us. I am sure she was
thinking about digging out under the fence
(like that hasn't happened before!!) and coming
down here for a dog cookie! She is the
SWEETEST little dog!
 Right now, 8:am, it's sprinkling.......

    Yesterday afternoon I went to Patty and Cliff's. Their computer is out of whack. She was on the phone with AOL for about 5 or 6 hours the other day while some non-English speaking East Indian chick who remotely screwed with her computer to the tune of $270!!!! Gaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa............. She didn't fix it, it's worse. Her supervisor came on and Patty gave him an earful and then the dumbo broad went back to doing the same things and then telling Patty to stop pushing buttons, and Patty wasn't! Patty needs to call a supervisor, with English as his/her FIRST language and get her money back. My next suggestion was for her to get a new computer, as this one is too old to sustain any of the new programing. That decided, after tinkering and trying to load newer versions of her programs, we had a toddy.
    Patty fixed dinner, twice baked potatoes, green beans with bacon, a yummy salad, and Cliff barbecued beautiful heavenly NY steaks perfectly!
    OMG that was good!
    Now tonight I will have to cook for me. I have been spoiled, dinner with P&C on Friday, Republican dinner Saturday at Red Lion, and last night again at P&C's. I could get used to that!
    Well, kids, it's Monday again. Can't believe March is tomorrow!
    Have a good one! Nuff said. Ciao.
