Musings about the rest of the day...

We tried to Skpye tonight with the firstborn and his family, but our sound did not work, so we had the screen going, and the telephone in the other hand...

Bob reloaded the camera thingy and found an option toggled wrong. So, it should work next time...

Ate a late lunch at PF Chang's. It was okay. What is with the sauce flourishes?! I am for fighting it, and asking them to take away the tray. Bob is for just telling them to do a light seasoning, and letting it sit. Strange doings. Why make a sauce and then we had nothing to try it on? Pei Wei is the same company, and closer to where we live, and the food is hotter because it is a shorter distance between the kitchen and the table. ha.

Bob has been loading up his laptop. His laptop oughta be heavier now with all the new files. ha.

In researching and loading stuff, Bob went through the drawer of floppies and bagged them for disposal. Wow. We have lots more room in the drawer now. Our present stack does not even have a floppy slot thingy.

Yesterday, we picked James up from the airport. His flight was fifteen minutes EARLY. I just love that SW Airlines. They must have had a tail wind coming back from California. James had a great time meeting the in-laws, and seeing Amber's favorite places. I am so glad.

Ben called. And we got cards from relatives and friends. And we took pictures with the digital to update the blog and facebook--but facebook has this ability to snap pictures with the camera on the computer. It makes it SO easy to upload pictures. Facebook takes the "face" in facebook seriously. I had trouble downloading an "album" in facebook, but at least we updated the profile picture. The old one was a year old.

Legs are aching from sitting too long. Time for bed. Did anyone suffer April Fool pranks??

My sister has a new baby and skypes with my folks EVERY day. They have taken to trying to sneak in a skype without the other knowing. For instance, if my Mom notices Mo is skyping in, she'll quietly accept and not call my Dad in. They harrass each other relentlessly... although I think its a plot actually to skype more with her. Whoever sneaks one in, gets to skype with her twice. Its really funny.

Your day sounds lovely. PF Changs is not my favorite - I am a burger kind of chick :)

No pranks to report here - thank goodness.
