Still computerless in Seattle

Nice to see the sun again, albeit briefly after the last couple of days here – decidedly wet and gloomy with high winds to boot. Of course there’s snow in the forecast tonight so we’re not exactly done with winter quite yet but it is nice to see a sunset again.
Finally took my ailing iMac into the Apple store yesterday but they described it as “vintage” and said there was nothing they could do 😦 Nice that they just came out with a new iMac, not so nice that there’s a three to four week wait for it but I guess that’s what I’ll be doing so I’m more than a little behind without my main computer, not to mention having NO MUSIC because normally I just share it to my other devices from the iMac……… sigh. Yes my iPad plays Spotify radio but the speakers are not quite the same that’s for sure. Good job I’ve at least got my workout playlist on my phone or I’d really be in trouble! Didn’t we used to have CD players and CDs for this?? I actually DO know where our old CD player is – hooked up to our TV’s sound system downstairs but your guess is as good as mine as to what we did with all the CDs we owned – probably in the crawl space somewhere because I bet it’s been nearly 10 years since we actually played one. Some considerable time before that I can still remember walking (yes, actually walking – those were the days!) into a record store and being shocked that there were no ‘real’ albums anymore, am I older than dirt or what??!

About girlonahandcycle

Natural Brit/Naturalized American wife, mom, grandma and all around old broad still happily ignoring my MS (since 1985 - ha!). Every time it slows me down I find a way to speed back up which explains my very cool Tilite wheelchair and Top End handcycle ..........also my ripped arms ; ) Don't get back to the homeland or to other cool places quite as easily or often as I'd like anymore so theoretically my rambling here keeps me a little more connected to far away friends and family.
