A Moment of Silence, please

I believe my beloved laptop, Minnie, has bitten the dust. Last night she had a too close encounter with a half glass of white wine and is now resting comfortably in a bed of rice securely wrapped in saran hoping this will pull the moisture out of her. She is in an upside down position but I don't hold out much hope. Her parts were wearing out slowly but surely but the old girl still had some life in her yet.

I will be saving my pennies if she does not make a recovery for (I can't bring myself to use the word 'replacement')another pal in the form of another lap top. Meanwhile, I'll be sharing Harry, our main computer with E. I'll try not to cut into his free cell and Spider time too much!

Cleaning day here. Good thing my friend Jill did not get her ticket changed to today: we have tornado warnings and rain squalls throughout the morning. See you tomorrow in fairer weather, Jill. And you too, G-a and Barb. I can't wait for all the girl friend fun to begin. I wish Janet M and Anne and Jayne,Chris and Sophia and many others could be here too!

Have a good one and I will keep everyone posted on any progress with poor dear Minnie!

I wish I was joining all of you to, thanks for thinking of me. Have fun with your exchange party. You have the nice warm weather but it sure does look like Christmas here.
Hugs and give Jill and Kip my love,

We have a tornado watch all the way up here in Savannah today! It's supposed to be wet and blustery all day! Hopefully it will settle down by this evening for Mary's first band concert at school! Have a wonderful weekend!

How sweet of you! I wish I could be there, I know you girls will have a blast!
I hope the weather is better by tomorrow. We had nasty weather yesterday followed by cold rain today.
Give all the girls smoochies for me!

Maybe Minnie is just hung over and needs to dry out - I hope...

I wish I could be there, too, and I appreciate that you thought of me. I've been missing my cabana sisters sooooo much.

So sorry to hear about Minnie overdoing the wine. My own laptop did that last spring, and much as she enjoyed her tippling (heck, she fried her motherboard, how many of us can say that!), it was not a happy experience for me.

Have fun this weekend. Sigh. Sigh.
