Follow Up Friday: CRASH – Boom – Bust!

20 Sep

Today is Follow-up Friday hosted by Jodi from Heart Like A Dog.  This is where we review the week behind so that we can launch into the week ahead (or something like that).

When you think things could not get worse, your system board on your brand new laptop computer blows up and everything goes black.  Gee – it is not even 90 days old.  Well, at least it is still under warranty, but now I am without it for a few weeks while they ‘repair’ it.  NO FAIR!  So if my posts are spotty for a while it is because I am working on my smartphone.  Enough complaining, now to the FUF.

Last Caturday we revisited some cats of our past, Gertrude and Cuddles.  The Gnome still guards the door in their absence. 😦

Everyone liked the poster/ history lesson on Sunday on how dogs became our best friends.  They absolutely are my besties!

Monday Mischief, the doggies were waiting in the shade for summer to be over.  I think it is officially is. because it was 40 degrees this morning.

Is summer really over?

Is summer really over?

Tuesday’s Tails featured a love named Tootsie who really needs a new home.  But we also had a second post that day because of the urgent need of a senior who’s both humans died, and is living all alone in his house.  Thank you to all the people who shared on Facebook, Twitter, and their blogs.

Wordless Wednesday was a real who done it.  Noel keeps getting scratches on her pretty white nose,  I am pretty sure that it is Nine being his usual bully self, but I have not caught him yet.

Make him stop!

Make him stop!

After I got Wednesday’s post published, I went to the kitchen and got a cup of coffee.  When I came back the computer screen was blank.  I rebooted and the machine started to boot and then turned itself off.  After a few time, it just stopped turning on all together.


And now it is computerless Friday.  I hope to keep posting but I am sure you understand the challenges.

That’s it for the week. Thanks for playing along with us.  Check out the hop below and you can go play with others.

Just another DogDaz morning at the zoo ❤

    Black screen of death. Ugh. Repairing a brand new computer is not good. They should replace it so it’s brand new again!!

      But they won’t. Such is life.

    Oh no! It takes so long to get a new computer all set up just right and then that happens and they aren’t fixing it immediately or replacing it? Yikes, that would put my mom in quite a fowl mood. Good for you to attempt to continue on.

      And to top that off I have to leave for a month to China for work and really need it before I return. Oh my. Always something. I am definitely in a ‘foul’ mood – or did you mean ‘poultry?’ LOL

      Of course I bought a Think Pad, thinking it would be a good machine. LOL

    Thank you for joining the blog hop. Oh how I remember the computer woes, and now I’m scrambling to get pictures off the old hard drive. YUCK.

    I hope they hurry up for you, considering it is still under warranty!

    Have a great weekend!

    Paws crossed that you wake up from the computer nightmare soon. Mommy is having problems with a computer that is just a few months old. She uses lots of “computer language” when she’s working on it. 😉

      Me too. I cover Sofie’s ears so she doesn’t hear my choice words.
