Oh...Not Another Monday!


This Monday, I wanted to join in the weekly meme from Comedy Plus, entitled, Awww...Monday's, but it wouldn't have been honest.  When you post the Awww...Monday's meme, the photo is supposed to make you say, Awww...

But, this week my image would make you say,
"Awww...Not another Monday..."

I couldn't believe how well this cartoon captures the last two days of my life.  I'm always working on and offline, so I'm surrounded by outgoing, incoming, and "in progress" manuscripts, articles, etc...although it's not quite as disorganized (a lie) as this image.
It all started Saturday when I began my internet travels. I was happily typing away when a message with a phone number appeared on my monitor warning me that my computer was about to freeze. I panicked when I tried to close the message and it refused to yield, so I dialed the number listed, which happened to be the number of a computer technician company. I was told I had too many files running in addition to four hackers whacking my computer to death and if I didn't do something the system was going to collapse.

I don't know if I was too tired, scared, or both, but I paid them a nice sum of money to delete the files. I must say my computer is running faster, but I'm not. Not to mention the fact that I'm a little worried and embarrassed that I may have been a victim of a scam, but maybe not, who knows?

This company worked on Driftwood, (My computers name...I'll explain in another post) all afternoon, while I was on the phone following wires and answering questions, like,

"Is your mouse plugged in?' Followed by, "Hmmm, well, are you sure your computers plugged in, Ms. Clemmons?"

I realize that computer technicians do not have it easy, but all of the questions and the plugging and unplugging of wires can truly drive a person batty.

I was on the phone with them so long that I started daydreaming about cutting Driftwoods wires-Again, my computer- and stomping him into shimmering slivers of glass, like a five year old child with a broken toy.

In closing, everything worked out fine like it always does, and Driftwoods happy. Although, I'm sorry I missed Awww...Monday's and I suggest you follow the link to Sandee's post, link up and join the fun.  





Thank you for visiting A Nice Place In The Sun, especially late in the day and be sure to stop by tomorrow and answer Tuesday's Question!

Thanks for reading...:)))

Oh I wouldn't have fallen for this one. I have a computer guy that does my work and he's very good and not all that expensive either. I would have shut down and taken the tower or laptop to him immediately and had his check things out.

Oh well, if things are working okay then good. If you have a money program with account numbers and such I would worry a lot. Just saying.

Have a fabulous day my friend. Big hugs to you and my very best to Simon. ♥♥♥

Motherhood- Courage


Motherhood is an art impossible to explain, one which requires a vast sea of love, devotion, compassion, and understanding, unmatched by any affection we will ever know again.- Ann Clemmons

Words-

Words are the core of our souls, without written, vocal or lyrical expression we lose sight of one another or worse, ourselves. Words bring forth the essence of the human spirit; so express yourself without abandon.

Written Phrase

Why is it that those we should know or believe turn out to be the ones we least understand? I suppose the world is an illusion until we find our way home.-Ann Clemmons

Favorite Phrase

I remember I used to half believe and wholly play with fairies when I was a child. What heaven can be more real than to retain the spirit-world of childhood, tempered and balanced by knowledge and common-sense...

Beatrix Potter’s Journal, 17 November 1896, from the National Trust collection.

The Storyteller, by Dawn Drover

Alone in her world
of make believe
weaving her stories
of magic and light

She brings joy
to the eyes
of innocent minds
less jaded and free

For only they know
what's in her heart
holding the secrets
she guards so well

Life's hidden mysteries
belong to those
whose wisdom and truth
shine on in imagination

An author values a compliment even when it comes from a source of doubtful competency.
