Horrible Computer Wensday

TBT:  OK, my computers are totally screwed up.  The Apple folks got my new one working.  It was the power cord.  In spite of the fact that that they seem identical and plug in the same, there is some differences in "power rate".  When I used the new one, everything came online.  Dang I hate it when techs make me feel stupid.

But that's why they are on the "help" side of the telephone and I'm not.  Still, it's pretty hard to be told the solution is simple.  It's that ONE thing they ask and you think "OMG, the ONE thing I didn't try"...

But then I discovered the new computer was a piece of junk!  My OLDEST Mac Mini (2014) had 300 Gb of storage memory.  The CURRENT one (2017) has about 500 Gb.  I only bought the new one because I misunderstood what the disk scanner program was telling me about available memory.

The new one has only 128Gb!  The NEWEST one can't hold even the OLDEST one.  My fault completely.  I assumed any new one had more memory that an older one.  It is a Cloud computer.  And I can't return it because I have corrupted it with some of my migrated files.

So what I need is my CURRENT one working.  That's the one with the dead power port.  Which means I have a reservation to bring it to to Best Buy next Tuesday so that they can send it to an Apple repair site and THEY will get to it in about a week, and then it gets slowly returned to me.

We are talking maybe a month.  So we are going to be non-email for a while.  I may explore my Windows 10 computer, but I don't understand it very well.  It is going to be very weird not checking my email a few times a day.  But in case we go "missing", I offer this...

To tune of “You’re A Rich Girl” by Hall and Oates…


I’m a Good Girl, And I try so hard
To make Daddy happy each and every day.
I can rely on my Daddy’s care.
I can rely that he's always there.

I’m a Good Girl and he tells me so,
Even if I sometimes tap on Ayla’s hip.
I try ta be nice but its just so hard
So he kinna sorta unnerstands I slip.

I’m a Good Girl, I would like ta be better
But it really isn’t quite my nature to.
I sure depend on my Daddy’s love.
I really thrive on my Daddy’s love.

I’m a Good Girl, but it gets so hard
Cause I really wanta be his only cat.
I‘m so completely attached to him.
All I really want, is to have just him.

I’m a Good Girl, and I try to like
Marley brofur, sisfur Ayla just like him.
But who am I foolin cause I want them gone
Just so I could finally have Daddy alone!

I’m a Good Girl, But I know that Dad
Would be saddy if others moved away.
So I have to live with the other two
Have to be nice to the other two.

I’m a Good Girl, and I try so hard
To make Daddy happy each and every day…

Computer Problems

TBT Here:  We are having real computer problems.  The CURRENT one stopped starting.  The NEWEST one won't talk ta the moniter.  We are on the OLDEST Mac.  We don't have email or most programs.  The Geek Squad can't help us until next Tuesday.

We cant get at pictures.  But happily we created a bunch of posts for a week or so before everything went whack.  We can visit on the OLDEST computer or the LAPTOP, but we are kinna messed up  for a while.

We are all OK.  We'll be back...  It is just going to be a weird few weeks. 

If you want to know, the real details are HERE!  On My Cavebear Blog.

MLK Monday

ALL:  Its a Bein Holiday today.  I don't quite unnerstand it.  Its about Bein Colors I think.  Beins care about that, like some are better than others.  And they dont even have proper fur.

So why don't they think the same about us cats in different colors?  Do they think the meezers are different than calicos than gingers that black than brown than blues etc?  It doesn't seem like that.  In fact, they like the differences.  Go figure...

We think it would be great if Beins came in red, blue, green, gold, black, white, purple, and some combinations.

We love watching Star Trek.  So many interesting Beins...

They still don't have enough fur, though.

Easy Like Sunday

AYLA:  My fursiblings are weerd... 
Marley likes ta sit on the back of the chair.
 Iza can sleep on a piece of plywood!  The plywood is there to flatten down plastic placemats... 
She like ta push against annything soft.
But it is also close to TBT.  I wonder what she will do when TBT moves it?  He has plans to do that (he tells me stuff because I am smarter and more understaning of what he says).
My guess is that she will stay closer to The Chair.

I was purring at both of them not to move while TBT took pictures

Our Gotcha Day

ALL:  Its our Gotcha Day.  Ayla and Iza were the same day, and Marley was so close (as The Lady agreed to let him join us on this date) we decided that matterred and it was all the same.  Makes it simpler, ya know?

So it is PAWTY TIME!

Join us for the new year Gotcha Day!

I (Ayla) was Gotched today in 2008.
I (Iza) was Gotched today in 2009.
I (Marley) was Gotched in 2011 almost today, but we count it the same day.  I go along with things...

The Day Of Much Naps

IZA:  I really napped out on the "barely-heaty-mat" today!  It wasn't cold out, so that "barely warm" mat was perfect. 

Knock the flashies, OK?
And go clean our litterboxes or something!   TBT:  I did, they are clean.  If fact, they WERE clean.
But I'll lay off the flashies.  Soon...
IZA:  I need some rest...
