Look What Landed At My Home...

I had laid down for a bit of a nap and when I got up this box was in my chair.

Instead of the Christmas/birthday rip it open quick, I forced myself to open the box carefully so I wouldn't do damage anything inside.


My brand spanking new laptop.

Ain't she purdy?!! I love purple.


This is a Dell Studio 17.

A seventeen inch screen for this old blind woman.

It has all it's keys, too.

There is a place on the side where I can put in my camera card and it reads my pictures. I don't have to hook up any camera docking cords.

Guess what else it has.... A built in WEB CAM!


Good Morning! Aren't you glad you don't have to wake up to this site every morning.

If I learn about using it maybe I can do a better photo for you and erase the image of the 'woman in the mirror' that I get to see every day.

Yay for you!

But hun, I've got to say that I'm just a littler jealous that your "woman in the mirror" is a lot tidier than the one in mine.

And yeah, isn't that cool, that it's got all it's keys and everything!
VERY helpful! ;-)

Just like The Captain and I was dancing beside the tractor when we got it finished.

OH MY GOODNESS! I'm so jealous I can't stand it!

Robynn's Ravings said...

oooooooooooooo!!! That's so pretty - and the computer looks good, too! And I am happy to help you with anything I know. That should take 23 seconds. Then we'll have coffee! But seriously, I would be so GLAD to assist you in any way I can. And just so you'll be in-the-know, IT stands for Internet Technologies. However, YOUR definition is WAAAAAYYY better. You had me in stitches, woman!
