Now I told you that for some it would be a great big
but for me it is wonderful!!!
THIS is what the secret is

My husband,
of 38 years!!!!,
built me a new computer!!!
It's MINE, all mine and nothing but mine!!!
all brand new stuff
in a new box
I am using it right now!!!!!

When the first box arrived in the mail...
I thought he was upgrading his.
Then the second box arrived
and a third
and so on
until he said
It isn't for mine
it's YOUR new rig.
If you had told me a few short years ago
that I would get excited about a computer
and use words like
"new rig"
I would have told you your were nuts.
But today I say
So, those are the hands that put it together
 loaded all the new stuff
64 bits (?)
a mother board (check)
memory (check)
who knows what else is in the box sitting in the chair next to me
in the
with it's little flashing lights
quiet fans blowing air on me.
He gave up his lawn mower for this
so the grasses and the weeds will
blow gently in the breeze for a while longer
I will be frugal and sensible
and help save the pennies any way we can
so that soon I will be showing you the
photo of his new rig.
This, on re-reading it, sounds sooooo silly
who cares
I have a new computer!!!

Who really DOESN"T CARE two hoots.......


So, that's what we did on our 38th Anniversary
we birthed a
NEW RIG!!!!!

See you in a while
I'm going surfing!!!!
