Sweet or conniving? – My sister-in-law was visiting when my young cat Morgan hopped up in her lap. She cooed (my sister-in-law) and petted and was very flattered. That is until Morgan hopped up on the table (where she is not allowed). SIL said, “I think I’ve been used!”
A great shot or not – I was cruising the obits this week (which is something you do after 60) when I saw a picture of a bride. I thought this may have been tragic but it turns out that she was married 45 years. Obviously in 45 wonderful years of married bliss no one in her family thought to take a picture of her. Gotta love obit pictures.
Thumb update – I have learned a lot from my hand surgery. It’s hurts more than you expect. There are a lot of nerves and stuff there. My expectations of a quick recovery were unrealistic. The other surprise is that the cats are fascinated with it. All bandages are off and it’s a rather large H-shaped incision. It has the blue ink markings from the surgery that I can’t get out (I’m not using a scrub brush!). Every day they all take a really good sniff, sometimes for a whole minute. I guess there is some odor associated with it although it gets washed. I’m glad it doesn’t smell like catnip.
Internet solution – A week or so back I wrote about an issue I was having with my computer security system. I thought I had it fixed but it came back again and again. I had to make the dreaded call. Instead of a real call, I connected with the chat feature. There were a few lessons learned. One was that it was fixed in five minutes. I wasted more time than that trying to fix it myself. The big lesson is that for me the chat feature where you type your response and get a typed response back is the way to go. There are no accents to deal with. Even when the English is good, my brain has a delay until it interprets and comprehends the various accents of the techie help.
Whose computer is it anyway? – I have an interactive screen on my new desktop. I don’t use it but Morgan does. She is definitely a computer cat with a bed on my desk. She has learned how to open Excel or Word while I am typing. She thinks it’s cool. I think she should find her own computer.
So how was your week?
