So now I have a snaggle toothed redneck laptop. What next?!

Update...what the heck happened to the rest of my message???  This was my first iPhone post.  Note to self:  scale down the photo when I have a message with it.  Sigh.  The learning curve with both the laptop AND the new phone. 

Anyway, Dell Dude got the new hard drive installed yesterday, and in the process his big fingers knocked off the F4 button, so he'll be back to fix it.  And anything else that needs fixin.  My BFF in India will be calling me at 2:30 today to finish setting it up and to make sure this hd works.  If it doesn't, Dell gets to send me a whole new computer.  Period.  I'm not installing any more software until I know everything works properly.  The end.  I'm tired of this story.

On a happy note, two girly deer were in the front yard for a few minutes just now, enjoying breakfast.  I tried a quick phone photo of one of the girls, but then they were gone.  Lo and behold, I just looked up and a 4-6 point buck was walking across the driveway!  No photo op as he didn't stay around long, especially when granddog got wind of him, bless his little heart.  Sit. Stay.

That's life in rainy Paradise on the last day in November.  Where'd the year go?!

Good grief, I can't believe he broke the F4 key! Not that you use it all that much, but it's a brand new laptop - shouldn't break that easily! However, better for him to do it than you. Hope it is smooth sailing from now on.

Ciao Sandy!!!
A long story with your laptop!!!
Deer? It's so cute...here I can see only cats and dogs..or snails and sometimes hens...and the steers and cows at the farm!
Have a lovely Tuesday!!!
Here rain again, and perhaps snow!

crap on a stick... Sorry to hear of your computer woes. Not fun.

Sending a big hug and wishes all will go well with your cyber world...

Aha, so that's where all the PA deer are hiding. Their season started yesterday, so it makes perfect sense. Haha.

Sorry you lost your F4. Do you use it much?

Empress Bee cracks me up. I'm sorry you are having so much trouble with your new computer and your new phone. Things will work themselves out soon. I hope so anyway.

Have a terrific day honey. Big hug. :)

Bee, I love my Dell! Sorry you got a dud, but hopefully the Dell Dude or your Indian BFF can get it all straightened out.

Wow, that key board need a good dentist, good luck. I always heard good stuff about dell. I actually have a fujitsu and it is great. Of course now that the extended warrenty is out, could be a different story. lol

Willy doesn't have a snaggle tooth redneck computer but if Willy takes out one of the bridges in his teeth Willy can be a snaggle tooth on a computer.
