Ya Got Trouble, My Friends ...
Good song from The Music Man ... remember it? (Here's a link to the song from the movie.) It all had to do with a pool hall opening up in River City--and with a huckster's desire to create a little fear about the corruption of youth ... so he could sell band instruments for a boys' band ... You know the story.
I have a different one. Yesterday I bought and downloaded a program that was supposed to protect me--to speed up the performance of my laptop.
A laptop that is now at Pat's Computer Rescue.
Because this morning, you see (right here in River City!), I had trouble--and that starts with t--and that rhymes with p--and that stands for pissed off.
My laptop would not finish its boot sequence. I called the software outfit. They said to wait for several hours. I said ... I won't repeat it: This is a Family Blog (sort of).
Instead, I whisked it over to Pat's, where it's now under examination (which will no doubt cost me about 100 bucks).
And I am using our "backup" laptop (an older one) and am raging at my stupidity.
Joyce, thankfully, is gone for most of the day and does not have to deal with her Psycho Husband right now.
Maybe all of this will be funny by the time she gets home ... ?
