Easter Morning,,,,2009

GOOD MORNING EVERYONE,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,Happy Easter!!!

It's 5:00 AM, April 12TH. Too early for me to tell what the weather is going to be like today, but Friday night and yesterday, it rained ALL night and most of the day. That was the first measurable rain since we got here almost 2 months ago. The rain was much needed as it was real DRY and the FIRE danger was rising FAST. My rain gauge says we received over an INCH.

Now, I'm ready for some more of the HOT and DRY stuff!!! The high yesterday was only 58*. Now I know some of you would almost KILL for 58*, but to us, along with the damp stuff, it felt real COOL!! OK, I know we're spoiled. It has been in the 70's and even up to 80's last Monday. It's EASY to get spoiled down here.

Anybody need a "Bluetooth" Wireless Mouse? I messed up!!!!! I just got this new Sony Laptop a few months ago and I was led to believe it had "Bluetooth" capabilities built in. It is listed in the Control Panel, so I bought a nice, NEW Microsoft "Bluetooth" Mouse. That was where I messed up!!! Should have made SURE it had one......You know what they say, "Don't ASSUME nothing", right? Right!!! Well, I was excited when I got my new Mouse delivered by UPS and anxious to install it. To make a long story short and after trying and trying to install it, Ms Pat called Sony Support and after a few clicks she was told "NO, it doesn't have Bluetooth capabilities and it's impossible to add it". Hmmm, bad news, not what I wanted to hear!!! That's what I get for assuming. Not being well enough versed to be capable of checking myself, I should have called Sony support BEFORE buying the Mouse! Live and Learn!!!
So, if anybody needs a Mouse, I happen to have one that seems to be excess to my needs.:-(

It's a neat Mouse, you can back up with it and everything. It is just what I wanted, except it won't work if you don't have "Bluetooth" Capabilities!!! I gave $35.00 for it and I'll take $20.00, plus a few bucks shipping. I carefully put it back in its original package and took this picture yesterday. (Sorry, the date on the picture is says 2008 instead of 2009, I just noticed that!) If you can use it, just holler.

WOW!! I just looked out and it appears it's going to be a Beautiful, Clear, "Sun-shinny" day!! Praise the Lord!! The Easter Sunrise Services in the area should be Wonderful. Funny how things like that work out, isn't it? It sure proves WHO is in CONTROL!!!

I can't leave without showing you a picture of Ms Megabyte2 sleeping. Like I said, she finds some of the darndest places to snoozzzz!

She will sleep here for hours,,,,,,even while Pat is typing. She sure likes Ms Pat,,,,follows her everywhere.

Well, maybe just one more! Here she is watching "Boids" at the feeder I fixed up for her.

She loves watching "Boids". She even runs and jumps up to look when I holler "Look Mega, Boids".......She is one smart cat!! Yep, Dennis, I guess you can say we are "HOOKED"!!! I never dreamed one little kitty could bring 2 people so much happiness! Scott, you knew that didn't you!!!
It was a GREAT WEEK!!!!!
Thanks for stopping safe.
Be sure to tell your kids you love them, they may not be around forever!

Mike, Phil would probably love to adopt your mouse!
And Happy Easter to you too!

Mike, you can buy a USB bluetooth "dongle" that is very small and will not stick out of your USB port very much. Of course it will cost near what the mouse did, but then you will have Bluetooth for everything....

Mike McFall said...

Good idea Jack! I didn't know about them. I looked for a "dongle" on eBay and there were over 4000 of them listed...WOW, and cheap!
I'll keep my Mouse and look into that.

Same to you Fuzz, for bringing this to my attention!!!

I'm glad you found a solution to your
"mouse" problem. Megabyte2 sure looks comfortable there....isn't it amazing how much pleasure and love one little furball can give....
