Bob you are welcome.  I saw your message to Gary on the sidebar, so I wanted to ease your mind and let you know she is as good as she can be and has not suffered from anything catastrophic in her life.  Just a pain in the butt or shoulder, which affects her hand.  Staying away from the computer the last couple of months have helped her, but she is still dealing with this.

It can also happen when you sit the wrong way for extended periods of time typing on a keyboard.

Hopefully she will return to Zoomers one day.

Laura52: Thanks for letting me know about Lynne. I only know of her from the Coffee Shop because she was reasonably active and I have not seen anything from her for awhile, so I asked about her.

I would think that to have shoulder tendonitis she must have been very active? Bob Stuart

Bob this is Laura from the Kitties and The New Laugh Out Loud threads.

Lynne is fine.  She is on hiatus from internet period.  She had some pretty intense tendonitis in her shoulder from being on the computer all day, so she has taken a break for a couple of months now.  This is what she had let us know.  I still email her and she is recovering, but still isn't pushing it.  She checks her email daily in the morning and then she is off the grid.

Hi Gary: I have not seen Lynne G's comments or anything from her for quite awhile now. I had the feeling that you knew something about her, maybe just from Zoomers, so I hope she is OK? Do you know where she is? Bob Stuart

Hi Bob. Yeah I would really like to see them but things are the way they are. Have to just suck it up I guess.

Re your computer; well I guess as long as it's working.

Oh by the way the motorcyclists are gathering in Port Dover this weekend for the friday 13th. Only one this year apparently.

Live webcam coverage.

Hi Gary: I am pleased to hear that you as in contact with your daughters. I guess facebook is a good way to keep in touch but I presume second best to actually seeing them?

Re Windows 10, I asked my tech person again this week, should I change from 7 to 10, as I understand as of July 31 it will cost me some money while now it is free, and he continues to say adamantly NO. So there is no change in my computer. I do not know enough to disagree nor challenge him. Bob Stuart

Hi Bob. Yeah I guess I'm ok. Mostly I just go to the gym at my local seniors center. Haven't seen my daughters in a while but we keep in touch on facebook. I'm looking forward to the warmer weather and getting out more.

How's things by you? Did you get your computer issues re Windows 10 sorted out?

Baseball season now!!

Hi Gary: I have not heard or seen anything from you for awhile. I hope you are OK and have you seen your daughters lately? Bob Stuart

Comment by Gary on April 10, 2016 at 5:21pm

Hi Bob. Yeah I remember having a LP with racing car exhaust noise plus a couple with sound effects like fighter jets and machine guns and various bombs going off. One ended with a nuclear bomb explosion. Just the thing to wake up the neighbors!

It's snowing here this afternoon. Supposed to warm up some later on in the week.

I'm actually thinking of skipping the motorcycle and this time next year buying a new car. Really don't want to buy used so have to save my pennies.

Comment by Bob Stuart on April 10, 2016 at 1:36pm

Hi Gary: Great sound.

It reminds me of when I was about 17, many years ago now, I bought a 33 1/3 record, do you remember those?, of beautiful racing sports car exhaust noise. It must have been, with the records both sides, about 2 hours of blissful listening. I only bought one record and I have not heard of such a record since - I wonder why?

Have you bought your motorcycle yet as the snow is gone?
