happy 19th of the month- ( there... that takes care of all birthdays aniversaries whateer for this moneth)
let the battle begin-- me against technology- it is impossible to buy a car now with just a gas pedal, a brake pedal, and a steering wheel.-- so the fact that those things are all that i need is immaterial.
i knew i was in trouble when the salesman asked me for my cell phone -- he poked a few buttons and my entire call ilst was on the screen...
and then came the ton of bricks "what is your apple password?"
the sum of it all is that i now own a beautiful million dollar piece of equipment now nearly immoblie because of a password that megan and jade used to set up my new phone- and they forgot it or i did -- or whatever --this password has already gummed up my computer.. i have 4 sheets of paper.. single spaced with passwords to so many companies and devices that my life becomes a series of "that is not your name"
that apple password is akin to your social security number. I t will affect your entire life from now on
... and i forgot mine.
now i can just hear the car tell me " you will need to reset your password- go back to the store that sold you the phone... then reset your mac computer in the house .. only then will i let you drive in this car."
i now have 2 inches of books on how to drive this car...
I will be brave...
julie went with me--- a brave soul... we got in the car-- in a blinding snowstorm- and are immediately confronted with how to get the windshield wipers to work?? it was soooo exciting.... i put it in reverse .. the screen showed the view behind me-- but julie interpreted it one way-- and i the opposite... so she got out to steer me backwards the old fashion way -- floppy hand signals
495 was covered with packed snow-- and big trucks.. i noticed this car has a tendency to slide a little more than i was used to... so i had to stay awake and pay attention ---- since i was driving...
my rear end is very sensitive to what the vehicle under me is doing... and we did take 2 or 3 slides i did not think necessary- when we got home- and i had a look at the tires, they are brand new michelins ... but the kind with virtually no tread...
never occured to me to look over that
experience comes from, bad experiences... yup
i am going to buy 4 new tires before i do anything else. it is supposed to hit 50 degrees in the next week... i am not sure i can get the car out of the parking lot with those tires.
as we were sitting there in the dealer's parking lot ---the steering wheel rang-- it was bryan-- the horse vet-- he had been to see the new horse- which had an infection in her leg-- i have not seen her at all yet... but he left all sorts of meds for her-- and instuctions.
i will slide down to the barn in the tractor and see what she looks like. as soon as theresa gets here.
we have at least 3" of ice on everything.
we also have remnants of the kennel cough .. i can hear a pup hacking..
today's schedule will depend on whether i can get the car out... and i will go back to my old schedule of being off the property from 10:30 til noon.. got to get home before nap time.. 1:00
i want to go buy some chicken stock, noodles that i dreamed about.
doesn't sound like much...
i will start to solve the tire problem on th e pohne-- with costco..
megan thinks noel is with child
we can do an ultrasound ext week -- thanks to your fun fund--
otherwise i would just wait a couple weeks til it becomes obvious
