Happy Mother's Day!!

No, it's not a typo. My Mother's Day present arrived today. I'll give you one guess as to what it is: Right now, even as we speak, I am blogging from my front porch!!

After much cluelessness on my part, random fishing expeditions into our desktop, technical discussions with any neighbor unlucky enough to be outside at the same time as me (waves to Chuck and John!), a chat session with a very nice Indian tech at Linksys, and eventually, a quick trip to Best Buy for a new wireless router, my stunningly beautiful new Dell Latitude and I are doin' it wirelessly!

Um, it's a little chilly out here. But Andy dragged the boat out front and is working on the final touches so that we can, at long last, hit the shallow river we can walk across, if necessary open waters in That Kintner Boy just in time for Father's Day. So I want to be with him. Outside. In the cold. Blogging.

For those of you who really want to know, for Father's Day, Andy is getting a new bilge pump! See? The romance around here? It just. never. ends.

Happy Father's Day to all you Daddies, first timers and old timers. May your children sleep in and may you wake to the smell of fresh coffee and frying bacon.

You know each other well enough to get the perfect present--that's true romance!

We need to talk Dell Latitude. I am in the market for a laptop. Wireless. Yes.

Happy Mother's Day! And Father's Day to your lucky man with the new bilge pump! Happy motoring!

Hi, I'm over from jenn @ juggling. I loved your post, "Most times I fear the blink, sometimes, I pray for it." Perfect !!!

I've been laptop and wireless for months now (over a year?) and I've never enjoyed it outside. What is wrong here? I have two perfect porches for it. Will set my sights on this new experience.
