I Am Not Dead!!! Post Reply with Quote Edit/Delete Post Report Post to a Moderator        IP Information Go to the top of this page

Sorry I suddenly dropped off the face of the earth; I've had quite a few things happen that have prevented me from communicating.

On Feb. 29 I was released from the nursing home a little earlier than expected. Once I got home, my laptop self-quarantined. (Grrrrr!) I'll spare you the details, but I tried a lot of things to get thing working without success.

The middle of March came, and Indiana's governor announced that the state would shut down in two days. I desperately called my aunt in New Jersey for help I told her how to log on with my usrname (forgive me, Cep, for I have sinned...)so she could post a message to let you all know of my situation. Unfortunately, she wasn't able to post anything.

A few days later, I fell, hit my head, and, after a couple of days in the hospital, got sent to anothernursing home yo go through physical therapy & strength building.

I HAVE BEEN MISERABLE!!!!!

The person who selected the tv stations here should be drawn and quartered; the residents here have all the ESPNs, Fox Sports, NBC Sports, the Motortrend network, a couple of Evangelical stations, and an informercial channel (not the Home Shopping Network or QVC -- just the basic informercial.)There ARE some decent channels, but they are very few & far between.

There are no group activities (thanks a lot, COVID!) -- everyone stays in their rooms except to go to doctor's appointments.

And, finally, my laptop's motherboard had given up -- the computer was good for little more than Solitaire. There's a limit to the amount of computer solitaire I can stand. After some thought, Uncle Larry said he'd give me the laptop as soon as he found a good replacement.

Two months passed. My aunt Sylvia (The aunt in Jersey) finally lost patience and bought me a new laptop, which I'm now using.

So, that's how things are with me right now. I'm not sure how long it will take to get back up to speed -- with this new laptop I've discovered I need new glasses!

I hope you are on the mend after your fall, and that recovery is going well.

If there's any practical help I can offer from the other side of the world let me know.

Hey EW! Great to finally hear from you.

I am thankful that your absence was due to computer issues after all.
I will admit I was one of those getting concerned, with this pandemic going around and all that, but I kept thinking if the worst did happen, then someone would get a message to us somehow.

Now please can we have some more cute vids on CCB? I've missed them sooo much!

We were so worried about you! I'm sorry you hit your head. Thank goodness it wasn't worse. I still hate computers but we have to use them. I'm going to leave instructions for my husband and son who to contact should I have any bad luck.

EW, I don’t think I’ve ever been so relieved to see a post in Gatchamania! Whew, you had me scared for a while there, and I m glad that in the end it was “only” a technical glitch!
