Leaping Lizards

There aren't leaping lizards on my computer screen but everything else is. It started last Thursday or Friday with the sidebar coming up unexpectedly. Then a while later everything all at one time, programs I've never used started leaping across the screen. Oy vey. I could just sit and watch. It wouldn't let me close down anything. Finally it would stop and I would, one by one, close each program down.

In came the "computer gurus" on Monday after a weekend of brow sweating and hand wringing. Who knew that I used the computer that much? They did an AVG scan and a disc scan which lasted for hours, but to no avail.

So, the computer is going off with them today. I have no idea what or when I'll get it back. Just wanted to let you know. There are a few of you out there that call when I don't blog for a few days to make sure I haven't fallen off a ladder, fallen into the wall - well you know all those scenarios.

I'll miss you, but, as always I'll return - just don't know when.

I thought you might have had another run-in with nature. Last night I was walking thropugh the kitchen when a baby gecko ran right up my leg.

Get back online soon.

This is why God invented internet cafés!

Steve, that is my husband's worse fear--
that a lizard will run up his pant's leg.

He can't stand the little guys because he says
they move too fast. I'll be sure to freak
him out with your story! LOL

Babs, good luck with your computer! Hope
it's back safe and sound soon.
