Clarifying the clarification

Let no fate willfully misunderstand me and snatch me away, not to return. Robert Frost

Good morning readers. Thanks for coming by for a read.

Evidently some readers were left with the impression yesterday post was a farewell notice. It wasn’t. I’ll be posting here, but not so often, is all, until I’m where I can’t. I just won’t be spending so much time online.

Keith: I got your email, but I can’t do Facebook because of the slow connection. Check your Yahoo mailbox, amigo. I know you have computer issues, but I think that’s the only way available from this end. J

The invader cat has raised the ante here. It’s evidently a female and in heat. Walks around mewing all the time, to the disgust of the four resident felines. But I’ve begun feeding it because I’m not going to have it starving while I figure out who it belongs to.

My friend, Rich sent me a RAM upgrade for my offline computer and it arrived yesterday. Jumped me from 4 gb of RAM to 12 gb with Readyboost, and it allowed me to follow some computations I’d never been able to do before. Uplifting, satisfying day.

Gale’s fairly under the weather, but he brought down the RAM chips and we conversed a while. Seems he might have come across a tow bar for sale without recognizing it for what it is. Got me fairly excited, because the towing issues are the reason the New Truck isn’t in town being worked on, or isn’t finished, licensed, inspection stickered, lock stock and banana peel. I’m borrowing Little Red to go into town today and try to chase it down.

Maybe I shouldn’t have made the post yesterday, though I wasn’t smart enough was the reason I did. It seemed an explanation of why I’d be making fewer posts.

For those who read it rapidly I suppose it seemed I was about to take off all my clothes and run naked into the sunset.

It’s too cold still for that.

Old Jules

  1. RAM upgrade — woohoo! I’m looking forward to hearing about that project, if you ever decide to share it with the world.

  2. I must say I’m damned happy to hear you’re not running naked into the sunset . Not that its any of my business what you do naked, if you run or where you run clothed or naked; I’d just miss your posts!

    • Carrie: When I run around here naked nobody’s much interested. Time was, skinny dipping back in the day, interest in naked was a spectator sport. Cops used to sit on the ridge above Hippy Hollow on Lake Travis watching a long time before they came down to make their arrests. Guess that’s just another way the world’s changed. Maybe I need to get some pairs of binoculars and leave them scattered on the ridge lines around here to generate some interest. Gracias, Jules

    Reblogged this on .

  4. Glad to hear you’re okay! Have gotten used to havin’ you around … 😉

  5. made a comment on that post. My meaning was that, as we seem to be close in age, I too am halving my idiot box time & using that to experience the wonders of the real.
    Being a history & science freak…the present world is not a surprise to me. (Read & backchecked facts all of Taylor Caldwell’s books complete to the Congressional Record back in the 50’s & hung with the state politicos who all like to brag to a blonde)
    My surprise is the many who ARE surprised at the present state. And the so called solutions by the powers that be are even more surprising.
    Are U surprised?

    • dayledann: A my [our?] age if we’ve had our eyes open and didn’t allow the luxury of blinders I doubt there’s much human beings could do that justifies the use of the word, ‘surprise’. Thanks for the observation. Gracias, Jules

  6. love your description of mood alterers…have a good’un & TY for the reply
