Hi! Im not ignoring anyone, my computer and modem and cordless phone got hit by lightening. Its all toast.......
all to be replaced........ Loud POP from the dining room and looked up
and everything looked blue...Was very weird/scary. I can see how
fires start that way. Im at least thankful that didnt happen!
I decided to check in today from work.
talk to you all soon
Pink

That's really a bummer! Will your insurance help with the replacement? Hang in there! And stop by when you can!

Someone else said something about talking on the phone too! Your right kevin, lucky no one was on it!
Mary, we did turn it in to insurance co. We have a large deductable, so it could be worse.
Im typing to you on a new laptop that came Saturday. I didnt know fed x ground delivered on saturdays, but it did. we have a desktop coming soon too. then i will be on more often. this is taking some getting used too!
Hope you both are well!!

Glad you have re-established you connectivity! Nice to have you back on line! I have a hard time with lap-top keyboards - and the touchpad instead of a mouse - not too proficient - would take me lots of practice...
