my computer is down. this is not unusual. my imac is on the third hard drive in four years. it freezes up daily. i can tell you my old g4 notebook mac laptop is a hundred years old and awesome. i can tell you my ipods and iphone are superb. i can report that getting my mom an ipad is the best thing i could have done. but i will also be blunt in that my imac is junk.
i am coming to you from my kid’s computer. it’s an old mac mini with a dell keyboard and samsung monitor. it won’t download the pictures i took today on my wife’s camera. even though i tried a hundred and fifty times to download the software i can’t figure it out…. so you get no pictures, none… and i don’t care.
my son’s school is doing a tv and screen free week starting today. no tv or ipod or computer time. he’s taking it hard. we don’t have a tv but he loves his ipod touch. he loves the alarm clock which gives him the time all night. he loves the action movie app he discovered last week. he loves taking photos and videos. he loves his ipod touch as much as i love my iphone.
the internet is down at satchel’s. we’re working on “upgrading” the wifi and during that process we have rendered it useless right now. my “tech guy” is coming in wednesday to try and sort it out. the office manager can’t get the internet and i can’t get it on my phone so i get more work done instead.
i have such great images to show you. there is the shot i snapped as i pulled out today of the grill and the chair. my mom brought a charcoal grill last week and we made burgers for lunch. there is the new graffiti art of evan poirier, a local artist who approached me about doing some art at satchel’s. he was in today and quickly painted 3 new things that i want to show you. you’ll have to wait until i get my computer back…. this computer doesn’t seem able to handle this modern camera…
i want to show you the pictures i took about 8pm when i left tonight, of the soft light in the kitchen through the 2 windows and the 2 skylights…. i could show you the new “mop closet” which is only half done. i want to show you all the stupid pictures i took today and get them off my mind…. but my computer is down and this is my kid’s computer. it doesn’t recognize the camera and i don’t have the hours it would take to figure it out….
i miss the pizza, the calzones, the salads, and the people. i miss the customers and employees. i miss the hustle and bustle. i miss the children that were always screaming and crying and playing. i miss the live music and the pizza… did i mention the pizza????
