Top O' the morning folks!
I noticed my message box was getting "busy"! First time that I've been online for a couple (or more) weeks. I'm sure that most folks know that I use a small laptop to access the internet. As with most technology, all good things must come to an end. I'm also sure that most of you know that I'm retired and live on a "fixed income". When my little 8 year old laptop bit the dust, it took my ability to access the internet with it. I dug out this "old Lenovo" that my daughter ditched after she decided to NOT attend college. So now, I'll be back as long as this nice but also old laptop operates. It didn't help any that this is the time of year that I'm fairly busy as I'm sure most of you are. I did at least check in weekly when I had my old laptop up and running.
The really sad part is the files and pictures that were lost on my old laptop. I know that I should have had a contingency, but you know what they say about best laid plans.... :-) ! I recently acquired a brand spanking new Canon Rebel Digital camera. I have the books but not the experience to use such complex technology, so you'll have to bear with me on photos for just a while longer. I have still been collecting and have added quite a few pieces, I just don't have any pictures yet. My "Collectible Coins of America" case is almost completed. I only need a panel of 2009 Bicentennial Lincoln cents and a Eisenhower dollar to complete it.
In conclusion, my collecting tip is that it's better to keep collecting even if you're MIA. Also please remember, it's far better to be MIA (missing in action) than to be KIA. So my Holiday wish for my friends and family is for EVERYONE to stay safe, HEALTHY, and coronavirus free until they can obtain their prescribed doses of the new vaccine! P.S. don't start worrying until I'm absent for at least 30 days....LOL!
