Grandma Barb’s This and That

Giving Thanks


With Thanksgiving only a couple of days away I would like to give thanks for my family and friends, including all of you, my blogging friends!  I would also like to give thanks for my cozy little home, food on the table, and the relatively good health that I have for someone my age.  I'm also thankful for computer techs that could fix my computer and retrieve my photos and documents.  The only thing that I lost was my contacts and the emails still in the inbox that I hadn't saved.  So that's not too bad.  Thanks for all your kind comments.  I was pretty bummed but then I thought it's only some photos and documents.  Nothing compared to all those that had lost so much in the tornadoes a week or so ago.

Wishing all of my US friends a Blessed Thanksgiving and safe travels and the rest of you a great weekend.  I'll see you after Thanksgiving.

Barb

Hi Barb~
I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving..
We had a house full and I cooked for days! :) There's nothing like the aroma of fresh baked pies and breads...and of course, the turkey!
Busy working on orders that come through almost daily now --'Tis the season!
Hope you're doing well!

Renae of Simple Sequins said...

Oh Barb I have missed you so. I loved your comments on 'A Christmas Story'. Isn't it so hilarious. I saw it in the theater when it was first out and LAUGHED SOOOOOOO HARD all the way through it. Our family doesn't have leg lamp but both of my daughters have the tree ornament that is the leg lamp. hahahahahaha

Take care my friend. Search deep in your 'puter, you just might find those things lurking in their still. ♥

Marie said...

Went through the same thing! My niece is a computer tech and she worked on my computer and got me running again, but I was "without" for almost a month!

eileeninmd said...

Barb, you I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Sorry, about your computer problems. I hope it is up and running soon. Have a happy day!

Anni said...

Hope you had a great holiday, and now that your computer is up and running again, don't be a stranger!!

Happy December.

What did we do before computers? Oh yeah, "shoeboxes"!! Every photo and every negative I took up to 2008 is still safely tucked away in 9 shoeboxes! Last year when my computer broke down I stressed for weeks, I got a new one and set up the old one hoping it would boot back up and I could sneak some photo files off of it. Long story short...the more junk I got off that computer the better it worked!! All my photos are still there and it works as a backup computer now. Miracles never cease. Hope you are having a happy holiday season!!
