December 26-29 2005

Monday Dec. 26- Roger calls to say he is real sick. On the way to get my mail stopped by Lee’s to tell Stu about Wessel’s email and to look at new fountain Lee has on front yard. Wrote my column for the newspaper and sent it in early for the holidays.
Tuesday Dec. 27- Not feeling well; a cold, the flu, an allergy? Went to town and got supplies, gas, and flu remedies. Dropped off chest of drawers and Wessel’s info for Denver trip at Stu’s house. When I returned Sam was at my driveway with his sister-in-law’s computer to fix, a rush job cause she goes back to Carson Thursday. Found that it had only 128megs of ram to run XP. Called Sam later and told him we need to purchase a 512meg from Crucial.com, he said ‘go ahead’, and had it shipped overnight delivery. Stoney dropped by after bingo with pumpkin pie.
Wednesday Dec. 28- Mostly worked on Sam’s sister-in-law’s computer. Loaded Avast anti-virus and Spybot and found all kinds of Trojans and Spyware. Decided get an ok from Sam to scrap the whole OS and do a reinstall of XP. Sam says, ok.
Thursday Dec. 29- Scott comes by at 9:30 am! Looking for some help finding an address on Lear ave. I go, we find. 10:30am UPS here with 512meg memory. I reinstall XP and backups on Sam’s computer. 4:00pm Sam here for computer, and all work on it is done. Buffalo folk bring by some ham soup, yumm. Finished book “Gateway” and started second book in the series “Beyond the Blue Event Horizon” by Pohl.
