More Labor Day Pics




Well, Labor Day is over and everyone is back to realizing that we have work to do.  It was truly great to have all the brothers and ladies present as we tried to figure what we were doing as we took care of a million details. 


Nancy suggested that we send our important docs up to Gmail so that we could always download if the puter was stolen, etc.  Preparing for the trip, I dutifully bought a fancy laptip, and now the fun begins.  I am trying to cope with Vista, the new machine, a new email program, and a bunch of online banking fun.  I have a 30 day return window from Wal-Mart, and it is very tempting to just take the new machine back.  Vista may be pretty, but much of my time is spent looking for programs and functions that my Win 98 machine makes obvious.  For example, I tried to load important papers into the gmail account, but Semantac spent so much time analyzing the docs, that the mail program timed out.  I tried to turn off some of my "protection", but that little bugger kept working away like the energizer bunny...


Had to renew my Oregon Driver's license, since the International one would not be valid without a valid state license.  I dropped by the DMV on the day after labor day, and saw a sea of faces waiting their turn.  I took a number and resigned myself to missing lunch.  A clerk yelled out for anyone who wished to renew a license who also had a present one...I yelled out and raised my hand, and surprisingly I was the only one...She asked me a couple of security questions, told me to look in the eye test tube and read a couple of lines, checked my side vision, told me to step over by the blue blanket, took my pic, told me to wait a sec, walked over to the printer. gave me a copy of what my new license would look like (some ol' coot was in the pic), and I walked out...the whole procedure took two minutes!!!  I had been in there less than 6 minutes...Kudos to the Oregon DMV!!
