For a long time I've been putting up with the charger for my laptop, which is twisted and nearly pulled apart. It was actually close to being in two sections when I did a Rube Goldberg job of splicing and taping it - actually it has worked splendidly for me for several months although I often have to adjust the electrical tape holding it together.
Today I was rummaging around in my spare room looking for additional items I can set out to donate tomorrow. I came across my original Apple laptop, which I ruined by spilling a full glass of something or other onto the keyboard. I took it to the Apple store and they were able to salvage most of the hard drive and copy it onto the new Macbook Pro they happily sold me. I still have the old computer. It is heavier, with a 17" display which my aged eyes would certainly appreciate. Apple corporation would be the most expensive option for trying to get it fixed, but I'm thinking of taking it to a local computer refurbisher to see what they think. I loved that computer and would give anything to have it back, but meanwhile I am using its power cord. Now I'm wondering what took me so long to find and try the old charger.
The sciatic pain continues to lessen, but when I start thinking I'm completely over it my body lets me know I'm not. I'll be sure to feel the aches and pains when I start moving donations outside for tomorrow morning's pickup. It is supposed to rain tomorrow and I just hope it holds off until mid-morning at least. I have a big tarp that I will use as a ground sheet and cover, if necessary. Some of the items will be left on the porch, so if I start the trail down by the curb and work it up to the porch, I'm sure UCP will take it all away.
Enough of staying at home - I'm going shopping. Lord how I hate to shop! I need a nice top to go with a good pair of, as yet unworn, slacks I bought a few months ago.
LATER - I'M BACK
I found a top at Marshall's white lace that will go nicely with black slacks. I feel like a ton has been lifted off me. I hate shopping!
DON'T MISS HIS SENSE OF HUMOR
