My Baby Has Gone to Texas

Try not to get to upset when I tell you this.... I shipped my laptop to Fort Worth Texas and if I knew how i would write a country song about my sorrow.

The keyboard went Wonky and the space bar hops and skips and jumps and sometimes makes the Window  go POOF! I tested it by plugging in a USB keyboard and it worked fine.

MadSnapper may be a little slow in commenting for the next 2 weeks. The keyboard on the laptop above has gone Wonky! THEY assured me it would be back in  10 days, HA HA HO HO...

I have the desk top and will post, but the desk top hurts my back and hip, the laptop is my main means of commenting from my sofa or chair. can you hear me crying?

Queen of the night also known as Night Blooming Cactus

Today we had 30 of these blooms and in the 23 years we have lived here this is the First Time Ever it bloomed in October

Diane's purse and camera Because I could

One of you bloggers made me do this, someone posted a pic they took of their husband through a toilet paper roll, so YOU KNOW I HAD TO TRY IT

whomever is responsible, Please Sign In Now.  UPDATE, see Briony's hubby at Craft Cat Corner


Susannah said... had so many things to report to us! I sincerely hope your computer gets back home soon and is fine. I like what you have done with the toilet paper just never know.

Have a wonderful day and be happy!

Woof! Woof! Oh My! LOVE your blog header. Its time for you to get a MAC. Please let us know what's the name of that flower. I think we've seen that here n no one can tell us the name of it. Mom will try that toilet paper photo ... its fun. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

Yes I can hear you my friend, it's a bummer that the computer is acting up. And I agree the laptop is handier to use and be comfy. However I do like my desktop best cos the screen is bigger. Beautiful flowers, and cool that it blooms now in October too. I have never tried to take photos through a toilet roll, might try it though. Will go for a trip south this weekend, and will take some new sea pictures =) Have a lovely Day!
Just about to start my work day here.

SquirrelQueen said...

That is one wicked looking header. Looks like you're getting into the Halloween spirit.
Hope they are good at their word and get your laptop back quickly. Being without will be a drag.
The blooms are gorgeous!
I didn't do the roll with my hubby but I did do one with a plant through a paper towel roll not long ago. I like your shots better than mine.

Hi Sandra
It was me who posted the toilet roll effect....
You've gone one better and posted 3 lots, I like the simplicity of the salt and pepper.

The large bell like flower is absolutely beautiful.

Fort Worth? That's a long way for a little computer to travel on it's own!! Deccy x

Happy Wednesday!

Miss Debbie said...

Sorry about your laptop. I know that is disappointing. My Hubby's is on the blink as well. Our SIL, a computer whiz, is trying to repair it. we are hopeful! Cool pics through the tissue roll!

Auntie sezzzzzz... said...

Oh I am so sorry, that your favorite computer, has had to go to The Computer Hospital, far away. -pout- -sob- -sigh-

Don't worry about comments meantime. I KNOW you are part of "My Little Posse." :-)

Pics through a toilet paper roll!!! Cool!!! What suggestion for trying for a Photo Op! WooT!!!

Thank you, and thank you to the one who suggested it. -giggggles-


Auntie sezzzzzz... said...

Oh shoot! Did I forget to comment on your TOOO COOL HEADER? I probably did forget. Well, now I am doing so.

Very intriguing Header!!! Love it!!!


Cranberry Morning said...

Oh my goodness, I DO feel your pain - as I sit here in a comfy livingroom chair with my laptop on my (where else?) lap because my desk chair hurts 'my hip and back.' Were you by any chance born in Wisconsin? lol

Hope your baby comes back soon. How could you be so cynical about their promise to get it back in 10 days. HAHA HO HO. It's because we've lived and learned!!

TexWisGirl said...

sorry about the keyboard. don't trust those texans for a minute. ;)

you and your toys.

EG CameraGirl said...

TEXAS?! But that is so far, far away! Hope you get your computer backer sooner than they promised...but don't hold your breath,

Photos through a toilet tissue role? Too funny!

photowannabe said...

Sandra, Sandra, are absolutely too much.
Now I may have to try some pictures through the TP tube too!
Sorry about your keyboard. Hope ten days is a reality for you.
I'll still be here when ever you can post. (:0)

Grandma C's Place said...

I love the night blooming cactus!
It is so pretty!
After reading the comments.. It looks like you may have started something with your toilet roll photos. Now I want to try it. ha ha

LC said...

Alas! Computers are like the little girl with a curl in the middle of her forehead.

When they are good they are very very good, and when they are bad they are HORRID!

My sympathies to you!

George said...

I think you do have all the ingredients needed for a country song. I hope your baby gets back to you on schedule. I like your toilet roll photos.

SweetMarie said...

I have family in Fort Worth Texas. :) I'm pretty sure that Dianne's purse in sitting on a Cracker Barrel table. I love Cracker Barrel...yummy!
You know that the night blooming cactus is in my top three favorites of your postings!!! Those are gorgeous photos, the color and clarity is so crisp and beautiful!!!
Very sweet of your dear friend to give you a loaner. :)

SweetMarie said...

don't know if I mentioned, your header is AWESOME!!!

Kim @ Stuff could... said...

I will grieve with you...hope it is a fast 2 weeks. Neat how you took the pics
I like your new header too

Deb said...

maybe your laptop can come visit...I'm not far from Ft. Worth...don't believe Texans are good

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Sorry to hear your laptop in in the hospital. I had to take mine in for a visit a few weeks ago. I was not a happy camper while it was gone. Sitting at the desktop hurts my back, too, if I'm there for very long.
Toilet paper tubes...who knew? I'll have to try that out.
If I haven't said so before, I love your header.

Remington said...

You are SO creative! Love you header!

Rebecca said...

Cute idea...the tp roll. And love the flowers.

Ann said...

Grab some tissues and dry up those tears before they drip into your keyboard and take out your desktop computer. We wouldn't want you to be totally cut off from blogland. :)
Great shots. I think I tried taking pictures a few times looking through different things like the tp roll. I'm going to have to do some more of that.

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

I do hope they get that laptop back to you in record time.I kind of like the look of shooting through a toilet paper tube.

Chatty Crone said...

You had a lot of things going on here! I hope your computer gets back soon and is fine and no major problems or $$$. I love your header and I like what you did with the toilet paper rolls - who even thought of something like that? ♥

Dee said...

Ok..Now I will have to try the toilet paper roll LOL I sure hope you get your laptop back quickly...I dread the day mine goes kaput. Give that song writing a may help as you wait.

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

Hi Sandra, spooky and fun header and hope the notebook PC finds it's way home soon. If you have an iPad you could try to use it for blog posting, but it's not as easy; still Grenville does it when we are on a road trip, but I prefer my laptop. Toilet tissue roles come in handy for fun stuff.

Rose said...

I'm sorry you had to ship your laptop...I can only imagine the groaning and moaning that must be going on. I hope it is back within the ten days!

I LOVE that night bloomer!

Betty Manousos said...

i am so sorry about your keyboard, i really hope that the laptop gets back soon and is fixed.

lovely flower shots as usual.
shooting through a toilet paper tube sounds like a brilliant idea.

you're so creative my friend!

Heidrun Khokhar, KleinsteMotte said...

Sad that the laptop gave up.
When does the plant normally bloom?
Love the paper roll shots.
my left eye kind of works like a paper roll shot. It has just 'tunnel vision'.
