Stupid modem

Hello all!
Granny's favorite son here,
Once again she is unable to get online. If it lasts much longer we will have to get her a new monitor...because of the large heavy object she has thrown at it. Granny will be back online as quickly as possible. mine and Granny's love to all!

7:37 p.m.

I''m back. We unplugged it and plugged it in (one more time) and it worked. Weird. It's a brand new modem and it's picking on me. I'm trying so hard to do that one post a day thing but it's hard when the computer won't cooperate.

Thanks, Granny's favorite son for the post by proxy. Just don't tell your brother that.

The girls woke up in a much better frame of mind today (so far). We'll see how long it takes before they're bored with vacation.

Have a great weekend everyone. I'll be back tomorrow. Right now I seem to be falling asleep. It suddenly turned warm here again.

I had a lousy modem once that acted like this. The only solution for me at the time was to get another one.

My modem like to mess with me, too. We say it plays hide and seek, because sometimes it's right there and sometimes it, as D would say, is "ALL GONE." UGH.

Good luck!

Oh dear, not the dreaded modem again!
You are going to be in computer withdrawal if this lasts very long!

Hi Ann ~ Sorry you are still having some
trouble with the modem. It is anazing how turning off the computer and then back on, it works sometimes. Glad the girls are OK. And thanks Tim for helping out. Glad you enjoyed the Taxi story even though you had seen it before. So had I. Take care Ann, Love, Merle.

A collective fistshake from Internetland to your modem. Doesn't it know there are people waiting for your posts?

Sorry for your computer problems!

I too was having some problems yesterday! Sometimes it does help just to shut it completely down and wait awhile before trying again!

Lol- I don't know why!! I know NOTHING about the darn things!

I'm always amazed that I am able to do as much as I do on my blog-as dumb as I am!! ;)

Everyone needs a child who can fix their computer. I have one, also a son. And when he makes the dratted thing work once again for his exasperated mother, he is indeed my Favourite Son.

('Course, it helps that he's my only son...)
