Sorting through someone else's computer stuff

We've been here with Lavonne since Friday and already we've missed one daily blog.  I intended to put out something last night and suddenly we realized that it was bed time and the computer was off.  Oh well, skip  it tonight.

Lavonne asked for help to determine what was useful computer equipment and literature in the spare bedroom, which was also their "computer room".   So we have had fun looking, sorting and checking if things are working. For starters, just about everything labeled as  "Windows 95" was pitched.  Such books as "Windows 95 for Dummies" were given the boot!  It sure pains me to think that such books are no longer useful, considering their cost.   (I think most were being packaged for a distant relative of Lavonne's.  If they can't use them, they can pitch them. )

Sandy and Beth worked with the computer equipment and books.  The entire issue is one of down sizing and what Lavonne needs.  Plus Denny had lots of things filed neatly in marked and unmarked envelopes.   There is enough stuff there for Lavonne to spend 100 percent of her time with the computer.

We also pulled the amateur radio equipment out of the cabinet and out of the trailer. It was pretty easy going until I got to the antenna on top of the trailer.  Every bolt (small) was rusty and refused to release with the screw driver.  Finally, I pulled the antenna base out and left the bracket.   We've found all of the radio equipment and coax I think.

Tomorrow Sandy takes Lavonne to Iowa City for some medical appointments while I need to run some errands here in Williamsburg.  It will cause a few strange looks from friends who don't know that I'm back in town  (but not for long).

The old Farmer's Advice:  Most of the stuff people worry about ain't never gonna happen, anyway!
