I discovered RSS blog feeds tonight and am hooked. The bad side to feeds is that you can’t comment unless you visit each blog individually. Still, it’s nice to hit one simple button to see if any of the many blogs I read have updated and to read with Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 what the authors wrote. It has been a slow blog day, by the way. Not many people have updated.
Rosa stayed with me most of the afternoon. We got on the internet and found what we both believe is her daughter’s address. Rosa borrowed some paper and an envelope and wrote her a short letter with a return address. Hopefully, we will hear back from Rosa’s daughter in a few weeks. Rosa was so excited to have some tangible part of her long lost daughter within reach. I was just glad I could help in some small way.
I had told Ferret to be prepared to head down to Opelika to go get his disability reinstated. Ferret was nowhere to be seen today which was not too surprising. You tend to expect the worst when dealing with drunks such as me and Ferret. Set your expectations low or you will be sorely disappointed most of the time. George did say he saw him walking through downtown earlier with a swagger, most likely drunk. I thought of the old adage that you can lead a mule to water, but you can’t make him drink. I tried. Ferret will just have to find his own way down to the Social Security office. Hunger and the lack of money can be an awfully powerful motivator, I bet.
I have a terrible case of new computer fever. I “window shop” in my spare time at newegg.com for computer parts to build a new rig. I must raise close to $1000 dollars to build my new dream rig. So far, I have only saved around $300 dollars and another $200 I will most likely receive for my birthday on April the 12th. That new computer is slowly growing closer to within reach and I can’t wait. I haven’t bought a new computer in years and have patched together my two currently running machines with duct tape and bubble gum figuratively speaking.
Well, let me settle in for the night, take my medications, fix a cold glass of milk, and then I am going to go enjoy a big piece of tart lemon meringue pie Charlie’s sister made for me today. It will be the perfect cap to an already serene and peaceful day. Good night dear blogging friends.
