I know she tries her best, poor dear, but, I swear all the worrying about a huge family gathering is making her hair greyer by the day – starting to look like a faded felt tip in action, if you ask me! Sooooo much cleaning and preps have gone into making a perfect day to ‘Post Celebrate’ daughter’s wedding to new Son-in-Law in her home town with nearest and dearest not at the Wedding……ALL THAT I COMPLETELY UNDERSTOOD (and, was willing to put up with)……….BUT THEN…….?!
OMGoodness what now??? Her frail and problematic laptop had apparently given it’s last breath…after another loud electrostatic crack =-( She frantically raced around the house wondering what to do next..????????..I followed obediently, getting ever more excited…as we constantly passed my treat drawer ;-/! Though, she just wasn’t for stopping (especially where I wanted her to) I think hysteria was powering her batteries??! A technophobic moment was in full, flapping swing…even knowing two technical ‘whizzkids’ (Daughter and Son-in-Law)were on their way up to northern territories couldn’t calm her!!
On their arrival(my tail was like a mini helicopter blade with excitement) then, there was much hugging and talk of their Indian Honeymoon adventures…before, she collapsed into a heap about the laptop issues! Much to my amusement, and, relief they dragged her off the get a new computermabob-thingy-do all-whatsit! Heaven!!!! Peace and quiet at last.. 😀
And, here was little ‘ole me thinking I’d had the problem of a mad woman solved !!..especially when they returned with a big, new, chewable box…. :-D……..How wrong can assumption be?
As things unfolded and got ‘plumbed in’ to reinstate her to the internet….she then had to combat… WINDOWS TEN !!!! aaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrghghghhgh (a seemingly huge jump from the seven version) So!!! Here I am, taking cover under my (ever comforting) puppy blankets until she masters things once more…at least all the fluffiness drowns out her wailing a bit! Here’s hoping, preps, panic and pandemonium are soon in the past and her productivity prevails… 😉

Love the ‘supreme court judge’ wig…ha ha – but you look gorgeous..
Thank you so much Sue! I didn’t realise how fetching I looked until you pointed it out 😉 I’m pleased to say things are getting a bit quieter around here this morning – so, may not need to wear it much longer ;-D
I hear ya… that is even too much for silvermistygrey genies… but hey I learnt some new words while my momma fought with Billy Gates’ 10th sin … and with every “wait a minute” (a minute ha!) and every “uuuuh not now” I’ve got a treat… not bad… wonder what happens when windows 11 comes out :O) Happy Valentines Day to you!
I seem to think she is mastering the ‘new fangled’ thing very well – sounds like she is karate chopping it to bits in between lots of those new words you mentioned ;-/
LOL…Do you think Billy Gates has some kind of deal going with dog biscuit manufactures???
PS…. forgot to say, Thank You for your very kind offer!!…if the treat drawer runs to empty – I could well be making my way down to you for sustenance 😉

My dearest fellow K9
I loved your phrase about the ‘Lady wasn’t for stopping’ ..at the treat drawer,
Now I feel I ought to pass on some invaluable information regarding your Lady Owner, Computermebobs and windows 10
Firstly be aware of mentioning ‘Lady Owners’ greying mop – the imagery of it comparable to a dried out felt pen .. mighty funny … yet some ‘Lady Owners’ get a little uppity / distraught at the thought of looking any thing less than a 1950’s domestic goddess .. goodness knows why when we ALL know they are more akin to Norah Batty
Secondly Computermebobs – these are strange contraptions have nothing I repeat NOTHING to do with them, they steal your time, you think you have been staring at the darn thing for half an hour and in reality half a day has gone !!!
Thirdly windows 10 – stay in your bed, pull the covers up and don’t make eye contact with ‘Lady Owner’ she will be blaspheming, throwing herself about, and performing unmentionable black magic arts trying to master the darn thing …and now is not the time to mention it crashes ….a lot !!!!
Hope this has given you the paws up
Be brave my dear friend
P.S Mrs P will make house room for you should things go really astray
Love Big Oscar xx
OMGoodness Thank You Big Oscar for such valuable advice! For some reason….whilst she is mastering/killing the new device, she has left open the treat drawer?? ;-D I’m sure this will deprive her of essential daily exercise!! BUT, no complaints from me you understand 😉 – especially as I have taken the liberty of inserting a couple of them into my ‘lugs’ – for peace and quiet! It sounds like she has taken on training the ‘Cat’s Choir’ during her new found battles
If she ever gets through this new experience – putting her side by side with Norah Batty, will only go to prove, grey hair, rollers, pinny and scarf plus crinkly tights are this seasons best look 😀 !!
Mrs P said:
Mrs P still has recurring nightmares about taming windows 10 at times I think all is going well- then it happen …a high pitch wail intimating the compurtmebob has gained the upper hand once more !!
I’ll let your ‘Lady Owner’ take on the mantle of Norah Batty’s doppelgänger Mrs P has captured the ‘Mad Cat Lady’ look to perfection
I forgot to say in my last little note – great to hear of ‘Lady Owners’ daughter/ son in laws return from India …did I mention I’d been to India once …oh no wait a mo that was I’d been to the Indian once – to pick up Mrs P’s bi yearly treat
Dear Big Oscar, how I already miss the days of the old laptop SIGH!!…..at least that had music blaring out during the day which used to drown out that strange woman’s expletives…now I have to listen to every word she mutters, until she gets some new speakers, which I hope will be real soon ;-/
My, My!!! Mrs. P does know how to live the high life…Not one but TWO Indian slap up meals a year!!! I think I am going wrong somewhere?! LOL
Mrs P said:
Hope your ‘Lady Owner’ is mastering the new computermebob even though you have reached a mature ten years of age you should not be exposed to such language !! whereas I’ve been raised with muttered navvy sayings as I’ve had Mrs P learning to crochet & windows 10 to contend with since I first took up security duties at the cottage
I do sympathise having heard much the same here recently!! These humans just don’t seem to realise our delicate canine nature!
Though, by comparison, I bet Mrs P found crochet soo much easier to master…I might even suggest the same to ‘my lady’ here at home…just to take her mind of things!
I heard The SIGH of all sighs earlier, and then the words….”well, at least I can now upload pics…….do invoices….AND….. occasionally find something I have saved…….so ‘b***** the rest of whatever secrets windows 10 has to offer…I’m happy with my lot!!!’
Maybe now, I might get some peace and quiet after all tonight ;-/!!!!

Good luck Beautiful. Don’t forget if the going gets too bad you can always come live with me.
Thanks so much Mr. Hicks 🙂 I WILL DEFINITELY KEEP THAT IN MIND!! ATM she is so predisposed, getting to grips with things, she probably wouldn’t miss me for at least half an hour!
Congratulations on your new computer! Best of luck getting to know your new hardware and software. 😀
Thanks so much Jackie :-)! As you might imagine, I’m not so keen on getting to grips with new technology – but, needs must! 😀
I understand! I’m sure you will do fine. 🙂
