Back in business!!!

Fall is on its way! And I am excited. These two photos were taken this evening at my daughter house! And what is more, on the way there we saw a maple tree with some spots of color on it!
I want you to know that I am back in business--I hope for good. I have a new HP laptop with a 17 inch screen, and after taking the router back to Office Max and them just switching mine out for a new one, I finally got the router installed. Not without mistakes on my part, but considering that I only slept about three hours last night, I am not complaining.
.........
This morn I told Roger that I just thought the cable was bad or something wrong with the router...last night the ethernet light on my modem would not stay lit up--it continually blinked off and on. I finally timed it just right and was able to connect to the internet one time. So, he actually listened to me, and him being the way he is, he went and got a flashlight and a loupe and started examining it. And he could see where there was an actual 'mistake' in how it was made. It is almost impossible to explain...lets just say he insisted on taking it back to Office Max and all the time I am thinking they won't let us return it.
.......
We ask for the manager first thing, the manager looked and he could see what we were talking about. He went and got a new one, and he told me he was going to take it out and compare it to the one we brought and I was so glad...if he hadn't I would have before we left the parking lot. But it was manufactured with no mistakes.
........
My younger daughter and her husband were having drain/sewer problems. So this afternoon Jeremy went and rented a big rotor rooter, and we went down to their house. Roger helped him get it down in the basement, and the work began. He and Jeremy fed the line into the sewer pipe and I ran the control. I am so relieved...we got out several big gobs of roots...I don't even remember how many times we ran the line, but the last one it fed through fairly easy and came back clean. So now I feel like that that is taken care of for good....or at least for a few months. But they will get the root killer and use it so it really should be done with.
........
On the way there I got so excited to see a few leaves getting color...I could spend hours and hours driving in the fall. And as I sat outside tonight talking to my brother, Neal, the sounds of fall were all around me with all the bugs that were 'singing'....

Welcome Back!
Glad to hear your computer problems have been solved.
I love these red leaves - gorgeous.
I too have noticed the suttle changes in some leaves - yeah!
I actually left my doors and windows open yesterday. It was so nice.

Sounds like life is getting better and your problems are being solved, yours and your daughter's,

Yes, it's beginning to feel like fall here too!

You've been having an eventful time for sure! Glad all is well now and that you are back on-line. I'm not sure I'm ready for fall color yet! The leaves are pretty, and I can feel it coming here, too, although I haven't seen any fall leaves yet.

Rose, it is great to see you back in action, and sharing your wonderful pictures! Computer problems are just maddening, especially for those of us that are trying to use them ;>)and they don't do what we think they should! I am on a computer in the office most of the day, but my home computer DRIVES ME CRAZY!! WELCOME BACK FRIEND!

Fall is such a lovely season. We're just entering spring. Glad to see there is someone elso who searches for words when tired. When you get on a bit the day grows too short to pack into it what we did with ease a few years back. Ah well, that's life.
Glad you got things done and your computer up and running.
