Technology/CRS/ Uvalde

Some times this computer works and sometimes it gives me fits...lately it has been nothing but problems. Spent almost an hour trying to pay mother's car insurance online. Decided to call their 1+ 800 number and was done in less than a minute.

Remember I found $111.00 from my 2012 trip to Terlingua?  Well, I got the bright idea of buying a tablet, when I have never used a tablet before in my life.  I am shouting at the darn thing as my fingers are unable to tap on the keyboard.  Then it wants to force me to set up a G-mail account when I do not want one.  I should of kept the cash!

I downloaded a different keyboard but have no idea how to make it permanent.  Sadly technology was not meant for me :(

This has not been my week.  My CRS is getting worst but at least I can blame it on my Fibromyositis. I needed to have the front passenger tire checked before our trip to Uvalde last week and of course I forgot.

It was raining as I went to get the car from the garage to park it up front so mother would not get wet. Wouldn't you know it, the darn low tire indicator decided to turn back on.  No problem as due to the weather we had a two hour head start and I could stop at the tire store to get it looked at.

Came back in to load our overnight bags just in case we had to spend the night at a hotel if the weather got worst.  The phone rang and it was the Uvalde doctor's office calling to let me know that mother's lab work had not been faxed to their office despite the assurance from the labs that they would have them to his office first thing in the morning.

Now my two hour cushion was gone as I had to go by their office to pick up the report.  I drove by the tire shop but they had several customers so decided to take my chances and drive with a low tire even though from looking at it you could not tell it was low.

We had a 3:00 p.m. appointment and did not get to see the doctor until 7:10 p.m.  We were out of there by 7:30 p.m. and he still had patients waiting.  Had it been raining I would of gotten a room. We got into a thunderstorm about 20 miles before Del Rio in Bracketville, Texas.

How do you all like the time change?  The only good thing about it is that now no matter how late we get out of the doctor's office at least I wont have to drive in the dark.  Other than that I hate it.

Good night.  May you all have Terlingua Dreams.

Spurs Corner

My CRS is getting so bad I forgot we had a game Thursday. Only got to see the last five minutes but no problem saw that they were going to retransmit it at 1:00 a.m.  I am known for being an insomniac yet now that I actually wanted to stay up, I fell asleep during half time :(

We have been playing so well especially at home.  I guess many of the younger fans are spoiled because they take making the playoffs for granted when people my age got to be fans through the lean years.

I so wish my dad was still around to see his team be so successful...he would be so proud.

Go Spurs Go!!!


  1. I hate doctor's appointments. We are always on time but then have to wait a hours to see the doc. My wife has an appointment tomorrow to get her eyes checked. I will take my Sudoku puzzle book.

    1. I hate doctor's appointments as well but sadly there is no other way around them.

  2. I could not continue seeing a doctor that made me wait that long. I don't think I have ever had that happen in my entire life.

    Can you try to return the tablet? I mistakenly bought one when they first came out, and returned it in less than a week. Other than the fact that it is lightweight and you can hold it easily, I don't find another good thing about them. I think you should get out your "attitude" and dust it off, and march back to that store and demand a refund of your money! You don't have to stress the point that you can't figure it out, just tell them it doesn't work well for what you had hoped.

    1. In this area of Texas specialists are in high demand so long waits are a given. I have come to accept them but I want to document them on my blog.

      Was going to return the tablet but my uncle said he would buy it from me.

  3. I like the time change, sorry about your computer fits, I have them too!

    1. You are the first person I know that likes the time change :)


I sincerely appreciate you taking the time to comment. Thank you.
