By leaving your email within your comment, I can find you. I realize that this is sometimes a scary thing to do with scams and all but if you disguise the email as say.....

this is the perfect way to hide from the unwanted eye. So please help me out if you are one of the non-responders.
Thank you, in advance.....Ravelly Rhonda!!

Crash, Boom, Bang

Nope, you're not in an old Batman episode! Nor were these the sounds of a car accident! This was a true test of my patience and calm nature.......sigh.
Allow me to explain.....
First the Crash - my computer crashed all of a sudden.....I figured it would happen soon or later but it was still a shock to the system........I did plan ahead and had saved up. I now have a brand new Windows 8 computer which I am totally UNFAMILIAR with and it is not being very friendly at the moment. I'm trying not to complain but every time I even go near the mouse area, the screen changes to something that I didn't even touch or want......ggggrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!  Deep breaths, inner peace, inner peace, INNER  peace.

Second the Boom - my garage door cable thingy broke yesterday with a very loud boom. I had just come in the house, reached back to close the door and went to load the dishwasher.  A moment later I heard the very loud noise. When I went out to investigate what might have fallen, I could find nothing amiss. Thinking that I'm lost my mind when I could detect nothing broken are crashed to the cement floor, I went back inside and went to bed. This morning when I went to wash the car and couldn't open the garage door.........you get the picture. I discovered that to replace it will cost a pretty penny.....sigh loudly, more deep breaths, inner peace, inner peace, innnnnnnnnner peace!

And finally, third the Bang - some of the hunters didn't get the memo that deer season was over....well they knew it was over last month but decided to ignore that particular fact and began firing into the dead of night last night at some hapless critter at 1 AM.  Heart pounding in my chest, deep breaths attempting to calm down, forget inner peace at this point!!!!!
I didn't find out what they were shooting at but if they had managed to hit it, there wouldn't have been anything left to salvage.
Thanks goodness, we have a Constable in our neighborhood and he was able to remedy the situation. These guys will be fined soundly.
At this point, I really do not wish to hear any more noises for a very long time. Noises are very expensive, don't you think!!

Poor Rhonda! Computers pick on the user when they are new. Making unfamilar whirring noises, hiding files, etc etc. Falling garage doors are so scary. Hubbykins always told me don't drive under the garage door until it is stopped. It was really loud when it fell. Next week will be better for you

I hate to be woke up in the middle of the night with noise....hope you have a quiet day today.

Brenda said...

Sorry that all of this happened to you! I hope that you are able to have a very peaceful day for quite some time.

Things seem to come in threes so your bad luck is hopefully over.

Some loud noises are very costly. I am glad the third one wasn't costly for you.

I agree - loud noises don't tend to lead to GOOD things! Sorry about your computer - my son got a new laptop with Win8 and had the store downgrade it to Win7 because 8 was so bad! I'll stick with 7 as long as I can - I even still like XP, lol. Sorry too about your garage door - I know that gets expensive. And the hunters - SHAME on them for shooting out of season - that just cannot be safe (or legal, obviously) - I hope their lesson is an EXPEN$IVE one!


Don't count the days, make the days count!
