The Virus Is Raging

The numbers of deaths are galloping up.  The virus is raging.  We were.tested again today The test is unpleasant but the discomfort lasts for only about 5 seconds.  Here at this assisted living place, Ida Culver Home Broadview, the staff and residents are working very hard to keep the virus away.  So far they have been successful.  We all are taking the issue of wearing a mask very seriously!


2 Generations Years Apart

A photograph of my cousin and me with our grandmother and great aunt.  From left to right: Auntie, Janet, Betsy, Grandma Friend – on the front steps of my grandparents home on Wildwood Street in Winchester Massachusetts.  Auntie was my grandfather’s sister.  The photograph dates from the early 1940’s.


Return to Blogging Chapter 2

It has been technically challenging to be blogging again, but I am enjoying it and making new links to friends, old and new.  Following the search for the missing mouse — it was found almost in plain sight.  It had slipped underneath a little pile of papers in the bookcase – not a logical place for said mouse but never mind – it has been found.  Thanks to my tech advisers who supplied a picture of the missing item.  At first I didn’t even know what I was looking for.  Ho ho aha – so that’s it.  Communication via iPhone’s camera.

Two Mice

Mouse No. 1 – the mouse that I am looking for in order to use my main computer

Mouse No. 2 – the live mouse that took up residence in our house last September

We finally realized the presence of number 2 mouse in January and with the help of a professional, James chased Mouse 2 upstairs and delivered a fatal blow.  Katerina was oblivious.  She prefers nocturnal hunts outside.

Pictures to follow.     mUK0a6JeVXjtPRcgOagyTaFjJz8INrs31UREhsqAZfxd9CNWZUHFYVkQdN6GJ_aGtaFZKbENOO_itM6_iHNoBRDFSxkg1KygGFYKi101vQ_edC-evg8cRZD0SjXcv_9xrJ4Zklc0F4Gttioe4OBu3le-9nuf63Xu6DvILzjT3N3tCf_8_Gj1b3gl5klJg3gE3UvGCPpJU1lwitCAmsMV6cmTWNhsQoNi5

A Bad Day

I am having a bad day.  Now that I am blogging again I decided to use my main computer rather than this laptop.  I haven’t used my main computer since we moved in February.  One of the reasons for not using it was that there was no electrical outlet in that section of our new apartment.  It took time to resolve that problem – we had to get permission from the upper echelons of the administration and to have the work order executed.  (Pardon the double entendre)  But even then I didn’t actually turn the computer on until this morning.  Ping…..a beautiful sight met my eyes.  That old beautiful familiar screen lit up…… went through its paces and eventually asked for the MOUSE.  OOPS.  I. had lots of bits and bobs sitting by the computer but NO MOUSE.  I’ve searched!!  Did it get lost or misplaced in the move?   I’ve placed a call to my tech adviser, no reply yet.  I wait.
