So... I'm the techie of the two of us. When a new Apple product comes out, I get the "wanties". Hubby has the dubious distinction of getting my "last best thing". :-) He's happy with that. So, please don't think I'm a meanie when I get the new "toy" and he gets my old one. OK? Now that THAT is settled... hubby's laptop has been giving him a bit of trouble, such as being slow and taking a long time to shut down. And then I had heard of a new MB - which had the new "Retina Display". I didn't think much of it.. but then my friend Gracie from the blog "One Saylor's Log" told me of the troubles she'd been having with her old laptop, so being the helpful blog "mentor" that I am I said.. "You need a new MacBook laptop!".
SO...... I started doing some research for GRACIE... and saw the NEW MB... and the "wanties" went into full raging force! So... I discuss the issue with dear husband Dayle.. and he seemed amazingly positive about it all.. so I email Gracie and say, do you want to meet hubby and I for lunch and then go on to my favorite Apple retailer.. "MacPac" tomorrow? Oh yes, she goes.. yay.. wheeee! A girl after my own heart. :-)So, we go to lunch at Francis Xavier's and have a nice salad and Gracie and Dayle get to know each other.. and I go.. ok ok.. let's go! LOL! Gracie followed us to MacPac and we went in and I introduced her to my old buddies there. They know me.. well.. we go over and look at the new machines and it has the new operating system called Lion on it and Mountain Lion is coming out very soon and we'll get it for free.. and I go.. I'll take THAT one while Dayle looks helplessly on.. :-D.. and Gracie goes.. I'll take THAT one.. and Tom writes us up.. and they come in next week. More talking and looking went on but that was the condensed version. Oooooooooh BOY! Now to wait!
I'll let you know how it goes when the box arrives.
When I got home from swimming the two littlest grandsons were here with grandpa while our son and DIL helped out her parents with a project. They were climbing up on the chicken house so I snapped this photo of our two little "Banty Roosters". They also were climbing over the 6 foot fence that grandpa was securing for the new chicken yard. This time our chicken housing and run will be VERY safe.
One of my blog friends, Pammy Sue, over at "Scotty's Place" just had back surgery, please keep her in your good thoughts. She just finished a gorgeous shawl.. check it out on her blog. I was so inspired by it that I just ordered 4 skeins of that yarn, I love how hippie colorful it is!
We just talked to a guy with the kinds of chickens we're looking for. I'll let you know what we do. Do you have any fun plans for the weekend? We have the luxury of no plans. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
