Red or Blue. And why did I ever think if would be different.

Centerville,  TX

Still being pestered.   Today Mr. Hardhead moved to the front of the RV.  Probably because back windows all covered.   Len was out shopping in the rental car.  So, what's left to attack?  Maybe the door?

  I much prefer this fellow who is minding his own business.

Leonard drove down to Best But today with my new Dell.   As I've noted on previous blogs, the new computer worked find for just a few days.  Then I transferred my Carbonite account to it.  Now can't get on the Internet.  When we bought the computer I paid for a years support for the Dell and any other 2 computers.   So, I called the Geeks about the problem.  They could not help over the phone.  Told me I would have to take it in to a Best Buy.

That meant driving 80 miles each way to the nearest Best Buy.   Len took it today.  They worked on it for a 1/2 hour and said he would have to leave it and it should take about 5 or 6 days.  They also told him that if they have to completely clean it I will have to pay another $85.00 to save what I have on it now.  WAIT!  I paid over $150.00 for tech support that I THOUGHT included fixing issues.  Especially with a computer that is less than 3 weeks ago.  They will have to fight me before they get another penny.  And I'm feisty.

What was I thinking, buying a computer at Best Buy and trusting the Geeks.  I've been down that road before.   (Slapping myself in the head)

While there Len bought a new Wilson booster for the cell phone and Internet.   We have one that is over 4 years old and just does not do the job any more.    He hooked up the new one and VIOLA!  I am now able to talk on my phone here without going outside, climbing a tree and hanging from a tallest branch upside down.   Life is improving.  


  1. George finally bought us the Wilson set up and it's amazing the signal boost. Sometimes it's a pain putting the phone in the cradle to talk, but it's worth it!

  2. Think of all the exercise you'll be missing by not having to climb that tree!

  3. Best Buy's answer to all computer problems. Delete everything and start over.
