Yappy Dog-Free Zone . . .

We just took it easy this morning, enjoying coffee and cranberry muffins. Couldn’t be better.

We did get some neighbors later in the morning. The two sites to our right had been empty for a week or so, but two rigs pulled in to fill them up. Turned out to be a couple of Marathon refinery workers who’ll be here until August. And even better they don’t have any yappy dogs. In fact we have a yappy dog-free zone on both sides of us, which makes us happy. And Mister too.

The day was pretty drizzily-foggy and got worse as the day wore on. The perfect day for just staying in the rig, but technology intervened.

I was trying to print out Jan’s Christmas letter, but my HP printer wouldn’t. It would start pulling the paper in, but then wouldn’t pull the paper through as it started printing. I took it apart to check for jams or shreds of paper but found no problems. I used an emery board to rough up the rubber rollers so they would grip the paper. I did all the standard things you do, but with no luck.

So, since I only paid $29 for this one a couple of years ago, I figured It was time for a new one, rather than spend more time fooling with this one. So off to Wal-Mart it was.

We headed out about 3:30 with a first stop at Chick-fil-A for linner. Jan had the Chicken Salad sandwich and I had a really good Spicy Chicken sandwich. And of course their great homemade lemonade.

Then it was on to Wal-Mart. While we were there we did our normal shopping and I picked up a new HP 2542 printer for $49. And for the extra $20 over the last one, I’m getting wireless printing, and scanning/copying.

But getting back home, I ran into a problem with the printer. It would not see the color cartridge. I removed the cartridge and reinstalled it several times. Since my old and new printers use the same cartridge, I installed the one from my old printer with the same result.

So it was back to Wal-Mart to get a new one. Only to find that since we were there this afternoon, they had sold the other two on the shelf. So I’ll try another Wal-Mart tomorrow.

Bah, humbug.

  2. Gregg…I have a question…does a tablet such as Samsung, Kindle HD, Ipad need virus protection?

  3. Elaine,

    Normally it’s not a problem as long as you stick to safe sites.

    I don’t have virus protection on any of my tablets.
