Can You Teach an Old Dog New Tricks?

OK This old dog is having a heck of a time trying to figure out this new computer.  It's amazing how we get used to seeing things a certain way and the minute it doesn't look the same we are lost.  That's how it is going with this computer.  I get one problem figured out and up crop 3 more.  Believe me I know it is user error but it is still frustrating.

Microsoft has now gone to a subscription system and they want $69.00 a year to subscribe to their software.  I did find free downloads for compatible software but (1) I couldn't figure out how to download it and (2) Ron got nervous about downloading stuff off the internet because of viruses etc.  So right now we are at a standstill.  I think I'll call me computer geek son-in-law to come give us a hand.

This afternoon I am going to my daughter's house to help organize her closet.  Organizing is fun to me and I love to do it.  Tomorrow she wants help organizing her classroom for back-to-school.  She reports back this Friday.  Where did the summer go?

When I finally get this computer figured I will be able to post pictures of some of our travels (when we actually travel).  It looks like NC trip will be toward the end of Oct.

I never even attempt to figure out computer problems--just run straight to the computer geeks in my life!
