GREMLINS IN THE WORKS ........

Nasty little Gremlins have got into my laptop, and I'm not talking the adorable Mogwai, Gizmo here. No. I'm talking that horrid little creature , the Gremlin called Stripe. I'm sure that I didn't get water on my laptop, nor expose it to bright lights and, I definitely didn't feed it after midnight so....WHO DID ?!!!!
Investigations are now underway, laptop is now being repaired and, normal service should be resumed very shortly.

  6. I am so glad it is your laptop that has had the mishap and not you! Maybe it ate some oysters after midnight? I was worried that something had happened to you. I am relieved to hear that you are well. Hoping that your laptop will be feeling well really soon also!

  7. But without you Blogtopia will grind to a halt. Already I sense it becoming lethargic and going off its home-churned butter. I'm hitting the red panic button.

  38. I'm amazed at how much I can get done around the house while the computer is down -

    And when the closets are cleaned out and the computer is still down, you must go shopping -
