Believe It Or Not, I'm Still Here

What a mess our computer has been! And to make matters worse, I believe I am addicted to this stupid computer! We have been having crashes on a regular basis and I just don't want to take it anywhere and pay a hefty fee. The computer gurus at RLs work have been passing information onto me through RL. I've tried all the scans I can find. If worse comes to worse I can always update from Mom's computer. That is definitely my lifeline! What did we do before computers? Probably were very, very productive people! I've found that when I'm waiting for the scans to finish their jobs or when I'm waiting for it to turn on after it crashes that I am making great progress on some socks I started last week. I do have a little technology fix with my Nook. Thank goodness for that!
Speaking of the Nook, I just finished reading a very interesting book called 'Closely Knit on Scarlatt' by Ardath Mayhar. It's about a knitter who is an assassin. Guess what her weapon of choice is???? Steel knitting needles! After piercing my leg with a metal Knit Picks DPN, I think it is a feasible weapon! Now I have to pick what I will read next. Anybody read the "Outlander" series? I've been seeing a lot of interesting reviews on the Nook group on Ravelry.
Debbie, thanks for the info on the roller coaster. I'll be sure to pass it on to the Divine Miss M's parents. They will be thrilled - they just have to be!
I will close for now. No pictures to post yet - I don't want to press my luck. I'm fortunate to be doing this much right now!

Ouch! I hope your computer feels better soon. Our book group did the first book of the Outlander series a few years ago -- unfortunately I didn't. Everyone loved it though, so I've always wanted to read that series!
