TS beer-bottle rating = 5

Well the "little" PC was just having a tough time of it. During the "reinstallation" phase of trying to get things working in some semblance of order, and to get the little WIFI tranciever to hook up to the base - station, Win 98 just decided that it was going to arbitrarily uninstall most of its drivers. All I can say is that it was damn creepy. I left my blogless Brother-in-Law reinstalling Windows on that machine after I had created a new boot disk, and formatted the primary hard drive. I hope the installation goes good the next time around.

So what else went on? Glad you asked. When I called my Sis back (after I'd gotten off work and could talk) She put Dean - O on the phone, and he asked me to pick him up a new USB hub, for him on the way. Back to work I go (doesn't matter though, I'd left my jacket there and would have to go back to get it anyway) procure the hub and strike out. Now, I live on the Westernmost reaches of Knox County Tennessee, and they live just outside of the North-Easternmost area of the County. At least half of the drive consists of two-lane roads, that snake directly through God's Country. 45 minute drive minimum, so I don't get up there too often.

They had agreed on feeding my poor carcass when I got up there, and had asked what I'd like to eat. I told 'em "I don't care", because I really don't. I've been blessed with the gift of not being a "fussy eater". Hamburger Helper or lobster tail, if you're gonna feed me for free, I don't care what it is. However I might have mentioned here that I'm a meat and potato's man, and that's just what I got. Salad, baked potato with everything, cheese-biscuits, and a steak that seemed like someone set a deli slicer at about an inch gap, and ran the whole damn cow through it. I'd like to say tht I cleaned my plate, but there was a helluva lotta food there. (and I have to keep my "girlish figure" if I'm to keep modelling on the internet)

Good family + Good food + Good conversation = Good Times. I'd try harder to go up there more often, but I figure that if I was there every day, that "Hamburger Helper" thing would become a reality. I ddn't properly thank them for the fine hospitality when I left (because they were busy thanking me for my assistance with the PC), so I'd like to formally thank them both here. I had a great time, even though you made me do tech support.

"I'd left my jacket there"... Cannot comprehend since we're still in the high 80s here. Every time I read something like this on a 'northern' blogger it cracks me up. Heh.

Please stop, baby brother. I'm blushing! We had a great time too and appreciated you making the long drive out here to help us in our time of need. Hope to see ya later on. Love ya, you know who.

In my defense: it was a light jacket. I only needed for first thing in the morning, as it has been dipping down to the mid-fifties, and the last few day's I've been arriving at work before sunrise. At least we have four discernable seasons, you are stuck with two...summer, and New Year's Eve. :^)

Oh I am not saying it is great to have only two seasons. If I had it my way, I'd be about 600 miles north of here. I hate it down here.

Sorry. I don't actually have a comment. I left your site up while I was e-mailing Bou. Just, you know, if your stats look weird.

Oh wait! I do: If you get to England, I'll know what to cook :-)

Sweet! I'll keep you in mind when I get over there. :^)

There's a running gag with most of my ex-bosses. You have to feed me once a week. It's a condition of my employment. :)

Lucky for me, I've had some managers that really get my sense of humor, so many of us have had this joke. In fact, every once in a while one of them will call up and I'll meet them for dinner or lunch. It's a great excuse for getting together, but I don't think they realize I'm serious about that.

Favorite saying? Feed me and I'll follow you anywhere. Feed me well, and I'm devoted.
