Walking the dogs followed by breakfast as is the usual pattern for the start of most days followed by some chores outside the RV that needed some work.
I turned my attention to the new computer determined to get it working the way I wanted it spending several hours before achieving any results. I have rescued all of my files except for the pictures, and I cannot seem to find them. Gotta keep working on that as blogs without pictures are very bland. At least, I did not have to drive into town for any urgent reason.
I managed to post everything to date using pictures off my cell phone so at least, we are up to date. My memory is so bad that I find it hard to recall things from more than a day ago but have no problems with doing everyday things. That is why it is so important that I write everything the next day at the latest. For one who used to have a very sharp mind, things sure have deteriorated. I hate growing old if only for that reason.
We went out walking around the park and I noticed that a couple more RV’s have come in. It is easy to tell the experienced RV’ers as they are methodical in the way they set up. The newbies mess around trying to get the rig in exactly the right spot going back and forth. It helps to have a spotter especially if it is a back in site and maybe a bit on the tight side. Still, the only way to get better at it is practice.
Back in Quatro, I worked on the new computer getting frustrated at my inability to get it to work the way I wanted it to, finally giving up and taking the dogs walking to get rid of my frustrations. At least I can do that without any trouble. We wandered around in a general direction but not in a straight course as Sandy is attracted by every smell within her range. Consequently, there is no such thing as a straight line. Mikey has his moments but like me, just follows along.
We did not sit outside as it was still too warm and not comfortable even in the shade and we adjourned inside for the rest of the evening. I fixed our respective food, and we settled down to watch a Premier League football game and then more versions of Cold Cases.

I thought you had your old computer back but you’re working on the new one. Why?
I took it back the next day after I got mine back from Best Buy
I thought so I just got mixed up with hearing things from you and your email and then going back in time when I read your blog.
I hope you get your computer problems sorted soon, Francis. Modern technology can be a blessing and a curse, but I don’t know how we’d manage without it now.
It is the difference between a cheap $300 computer and the $1500 one that I own. There is no comparison and you get what you pay for. I agree with the blessing/curse thing as they can be so frustrating at times. I have used them ever since they first came out but still get annoyed at my inability at times…
I have an old Lenovo computer. It works well and i am hesitant to go out to purchase a new one.
Tom, depending on how old, any new one would require a learning curve which can be very frustrating…
