Greg 'n Keetha Stuff

OK, let's be honest. This is really KEETHA stuff. Sometimes I write about Greg - - - but he has never in his life made one single post of his own. He has occasionally made a comment or two. So - - - come on in and visit with me, Keetha, for a while. I'd love it if you left your foot prints. (Interpretation: COMMENT PLEASE ;-)

I'm Drowning in a Sea of - - -


Techno-illiteracy. I just want to know how to do some simple things like change my picture file size so I'm not filling up my blogger space so rapidly.


When my techno-geek-bum-college-student son came by for a few days visit, I begged him for help.


He promptly began uploading, downloading, and overloading my computer with things that would help me in my quest for more knowledge.

I TRIED to follow his lingo - - - but it was all GEEK to me. I mean, I'm barely swimming around in a Kindergarten Pool of "Dick and Jane" and he threw me a Tolstoy "War and Peace" lifeline!!!!

When I cried out with tears of frustration - - - -


All he could do was hang his head at my total ignorance.

And I still am - - - - ignorant. :-(

But hey, Kyle, THANKS for trying!!!

It's awful to be on a LESSER par than our offspring - - - isn't it!?!

Speaking of being on a LESSER par than your offsprings...now Jim wants a lappy like Keetha's. I try to teach him not to "covet" but he says he doesn't "covet" your's...he wants one for himself!!! Ha!!!

I called Kyle the other nite. Was so good to hear his voice and I am helping him work out the financial arrangements for his new business. He should do really well, and with Kelly's "2 cents" thrown in...he'll be a millionaire in no time!!!

Well - - -considering that his "new business" is house sitting for us when we go on vacation - - - I can just TELL YOU he WILL NOT become a millionaire at THAT!!!

Funny about Jim and the lappy.

Jim - - - GO TO BEST BUY. You may be able to get one for a lot less than you think. ;-) That's how I got mine.

This made me laugh because Steve's dad just bought a new computer and he calls us almost daily about how to use it....I have to admitt we do get frustrated at times but try to be paitent because we are proud of him for trying to be up with the times.....

Well, as you know I'm not QUITE that much of a novice - - - - but I guess enough of one to cause this reaction in Kyle.

Kyle, how can I delete Keetha's comment from my computer so Jim will not be able to read where to get a new lappy??? Ha!!!

You CANNOT - - - I, being the administrator of this blog AND the writer of that comment COULD delete it - - - - but I shan't.

:-)

You CAN on the other hand delete any comment YOU write on this blog - - - and as the administrator of YOUR OWN BLOG you can delete any you write there - - - - but oh, wait a minute - - - you don't WRITE on your blog!!!! :-)

LOL - - - -

All I want to do is make my picture files smaller. The way Kyle was showing me would take an Act of Congress to accomplish!!! All I want is a nice little button to click - - -

Goodness I wish I had some computer savvy person I could call on!

Oh Alter Ego - - - it is far BETTER if the computer savy person IS NOT closely related to you - - - - a total stranger has MUCH more sympathy and patience!!!

Besides alter, how old is your little son??? Well - - - wait about FIVE MINUTES and he will be more computer literate than you. :-) That's just how it works in my experience - - - -
