The Halfway House

From the 1940's. Made me smile.

My laptop is sick. I've had to take it in for repair. No idea what's wrong with it. (must have corrupted it:))  Asked how long it would take and the girl said allow 28 days because they have to send it off for repair. She must have seen the look on my face and quickly added it only takes that long if it needs new parts. Seriously, it's a real pain not having it so keep fingers crossed for me it doesn't need new parts.

I've scheduled this post and one for Friday.

I am sure it might take longer once they have started to look at your internet history>

28 days! That is a 19th century wait for 21st century technology.
Somebody deserves a serious spankinghere! Crossing my fingers for the best.

Great clip Ronnie! Thanks for sharing.

Giggling at Michael's comment too. Fingers crossed you won't be without it for too long. You'll have to tell us if they make any comment when you collect it :)

Oh, dear! That's not nice at all. Let's hope they fix it quickly.

I think computer repair people have pretty much seen it all, so don't worry what they might think.

Michael - LOL. I hope not. Thanks.
MrJ - As it is still under guarantee better to take it back to them than having to pay for repair, even if it does take a long time. Thank you.

Dee - I have but all my emails (ronnie as well), contacts and pictures for my blog are on my laptop:) Thanks.

Jan - I'll send P just in case:) Thanks.

Roz - Bet they don't say anything:) Thanks.

Hermione - Doesn't bother me. As you say they've seen it all. Thanks.

Joey - Hello. My pleasure. Was thinking about you.

Terps - So do I. Thank you.

Loved that little clip! So funny but poor girl had her face in the tub for a second or two and got her makeup and hair all wet!

So sorry about your computer. I hate computer troubles!

SG - I could have taken it to our local computer shop but as Its still under guarantee I took it back to the store where I bought it. They don't do repairs on the premises, they have to send it away and if it needs new parts which they have to order it could take 28 days:( Thanks.

Sara - That's what made me laugh, though I'd hate if that happened to me. Thank you.

PK - LOL. Keep fingers crossed. Thanks.

Kim - Hello. P will probably refuse:) Thank you.

Blondie - Made me smile. Thanks.

Renee - My pleasure. Thank you.
