The holidays are almost over....Yeeee Haaa

This is my 14th attempt to write something. This one may end up in the dumpster too.
Ya know, it ain't easy to write a letter to your best friends when ya ain't got nuttin to write about. So here goes nuttin again.

Did I tell ya bout Windows 10? Well, let me tell ya. On the new Dell touchscreen computer, I spended bout 5 hours install'n that thing.....slow internet connection. Then....."what the hell"??? I don't like this shit. It's close to Win 8.1, but it does stuff you may not want done. I spended a good 2 days chang'n things to get it to do what I wanted it to do....but it still did what "it" wanted to do.
On top all that, my computer started lock'n up. Had to do a cold shutdown an' reboot. Some the things I had changed went back to default during the reboot. It was at that time that I went back to Win 8.1. An' guess what, the computer still locks up....an' there are no longer any restore points.

On the Toshiba laptop, I had installed Win 10 on it a while back. It works if'n you like not hav'n stuff like the way YOU want it. There is no options for upgrades an' stuff like that. It's all done automatically.....eated up my monthly allowance on my Verizon air card...an' guess who has to pay for that.

Christmas day was was a day of sit'n in "da house". I feeled so bad I couldn't even lay down. Had me plenty company though. Kids an' grandkids.....a couple dogs. Christmas ain't one my favorite holidays. Ain't like it used to be when it wasn't a political correctness day. Ha, I 'member a time when we stringed popcorn an' put on a real tree. Spend 14 hours try'n to figger out what light bub wasn't work'n. You know what I'm talk'n bout....when decorat'n a tree was family fun. An' all the Christmas dinner eat'em ups.....yum yum boy howdy. Anyhows, this year sucked.

Boy howdy, you should see the shine I got on the boat. It's a done deal....other than a coat of wacks. Ha ha, that took care of that * what don't work.....acks. Added me some chrome trim to the sides. Damn, look'n just like a 1949 Chris Craft rac'n boat. I cain't post pics from this computer 'cause the card reader don't work. POS computer.

I went to the frick'n doctor. He says he gonna send me for some tests on my lung functions. Appointment for Dec. 31st. Then I look at the appointment.....it's NOT for a lung test, it's for blood work. I don't need no stink'n blood work. Will cancel that appointment.

The weather has been pretty dad gum good for the last couple weeks.....well, maybe bout 8 or 10 days. We been in the mid to upper 60's at night an' mid 70's daytime. Close to that anyhows. BUT, there's storms headed this way. Temps are gonna drop a little bit. I'm gonna git cold I betcha a dollar.

Had a problem with the "billy jeep". Ya see, the battery went slap dead as a doornail an' had to recharge it. The hood was open for a couple days while I was test'n to see why the battery went dead.
Then after a couple more days, I go outside to start up the "billy jeep". All it do is go wrrrrrrr, wrrrrrr, wrrrrr.....don't start. I piddle round under the hood with connections....damn, it's damp in here. Finally I get it crank up....an' it die. A few times. "Fire up the a/c Billy Bob". Ha, the a/c don't work no more. Low pressure switch ain't got no continuity (contacks are open). This means there ain't no freeze stuff in the a/c system. Well it's winter, what the hell would I turn the a/c on for? It will wait for fairer weather before I jump in there an' fi* (repair) it.

Gonna brew me up a big pot of  Billy Bob beef vegetable stew soup here in a bit. After I do up these damn dishes. I hate warsh'n dishes. 


  1. It's still good to hear from the Billy Bob,take care.

  2. Yup it's good to hear from you!

    You have my sympathy on the "warsh'n dishes" It's probably a toss up as to who dislikes washing dishes more, me or you. There has got to be a better way but danged if I know what it is.

  3. Computers--can't live with them; can't live without them. Another case where I hate the words "new, improved." I accidentally allowed an upgrade to my tablet yesterday. Good thing it worked cause my one year warranty, I think I had one of those, ran out last week.

  4. Nice to hear from you again it's been too long!

  5. Wife and I cancelled Christmas this year. Bah Humbug.

  6. Good to hear from you. Got too cold in Indiana, we're heading to Rockport Texas. Looks like it's going to be cold there also.

  7. Good to hear from you. Got too cold in Indiana, we're heading to Rockport Texas. Looks like it's going to be cold there also.

  8. Im still in pain,,,not sure whats gonna happen. We sure got our "weather", just staying in mostly, too wet and cold, windy. Just did my walmart shopping today, i order online, no shipping, brought to my door. All the things i used to drive 36 miles for. I think i have a bed sore,,, had one, once. Seeing a doc later today. AND on my walmart order is some fleece material. I have to sit way too much.
    I looked everywhere to get this win7, so i sure dont want 8 or 10!! Kept getting a pop up to upgrade to 10, boy i fixed that... hahaha, now i dont have google chrome. Using firefox all the time. Anybody know any other good browsers?

  9. Windows 10 stinks, gonna take it to the Geek boys and remove it and replace 7. I haven't been able to transfer new pictures and if I do I can't find them.

    1. That pop up for win10 kept going all the time. If i had wanted 10 i would have gotten it when i had to replace my laptop.

  10. Billy Bob, what's going on? Every morning I check first thing. Am getting worried. 😧 Please let us know something!!
