    I think that was my first and last bus trip. I like being in control, especially of when to decide to go home. We departed D.C. in the middle of rush hour and it took 3 hours to make the 1 1/2 hr trip.

    I have an ASUS laptop with Windows 10, but I use Chrome browser and gmail and try to avoid things Microsoft as much as possible. Aside from Photoshop, I don't need it for much of anything but going online.

    I started out on Macs in the 80's too and was firmly in the Mac camp for years, but I got used to PCs at work and Macs were more expensive. Plus the one thing I do prefer on PCs is you can go in and tweak your system more. Had a fully-loaded desktop that I left back in Ohio so my ex could get his daily Breitbart fix and do god knows what else on there.

    Felt a little strange at first to move to a laptop, but I'm happy with it. My only issue is that the area where I rest my palms while typing with it on my lap is oversensitive to what it thinks are gestural commands and sometimes, especially here on Spark, my window will close while I'm in the middle of typing. Right now I'm typing in Notepad and will copy/paste because it happened twice already.

    Thanks! I sure hope they get it fixed. I won't know, of course...unless or until there's another torrential rain. That probably won't be until next rainy season but I'll live on the edge and remove the sandbags that are still in front of the side door. I've removed the rest but still haven't cleaned the lanai since the hurricane and it's really filthy :( I just haven't had the energy :(

    Hope you and the fur babies are doing well...I know you're on a shorter countdown than I...what fun! I've got to schedule my appointment with the Medicare Insurance specialist and also need to sign up for ss in a couple of weeks. I hope I don't mess it up!

    Hugs to you and head butts and chin scratches for B&T.

    I had a friend come over on Sunday and she took me to the grocery store. Fun times, huh?!! I can actually shop alone as long as I don't buy anything too heavy and I told her that but she still wants to help me shop. Maybe she just likes our grocery store. LOL

    Do you have just a couple of days off for Thanksgiving or more than that? We will go by Dad this year. We take all the food and then leave most of it for him. I have started cooking for him now too. Yesterday when I drove down by him, I took him some chili and then I also took him out for lunch. I'm not very helpful yet because I have so many limitations but I'm good for a visit and food.

    It is a dreary day here and now the drizzle has begun. Rain overnight. More snow by the end of the week. How is it by you?
