Wow! You guys are such a great support system. Between you and Mandy, you encouraged me to stand up for ourselves with Best Buy's Geek Squad. So yesterday I went in, receipt in hand to ask for a refund for the $219.59 that they charged us for tech support. Would you believe that I didn't say a word to the young man? He just took one look at me, must have remembered the fiasco of last week, took my receipt and refunded us the entire amount! Not a word was said by either of us. It was really weird. Afterwards, I very nicely told him that friends had downloaded everything for us Sunday afternoon. I really did say it very nicely. He just answered VERY sarcastically, "Well good for you!" and walked away. It was said in the rudest tone I've heard in a long, long time. This was the strangest and worst customer service event I've ever experienced!
Last night Alex face-timed from Japan and had me face the iPad to the laptop so he could see the screen and walked me through downloading both of our printer drivers! They had also told us we needed to buy two new printers to replace our laser printer and ink jet scanner/printer/copier. I am SO glad that we didn't give away the laser printer! The Geek Squad said the the drivers weren't available for our old printers that aren't even that old. Now I can print from both my iPad AND the new laptop. I'm so grateful for Alex helping us with that last night. Who would have thought he would be able to do it from his little town in northern Japan, when the Geek squad couldn't do it with the actual laptop in their hands?
Okay, done with the computer drama. (I hope.) Like I promised, I have more knitting to show you that took place when I was computerless.
I made two more dishcloths. I really like this Hobby Lobby, I Love This Cotton. It's so soft to knit with.
Mandy and Piper spent some time with them yesterday and Piper taught them a matching game. Aunt Ev used to work in the school system and has always been good with children.
Piper called me as they drove home after the visit and told me all about it. She seemed to have lots of fun with them. One of my earliest memories of dating Dennis was camping with Uncle Al, Aunt Ev and their families over Memorial Day weekend at Ponca State Park in the NE corner of Nebraska. I'm glad Piper is getting to know them too. Family is important.
I went to my knitting group this morning and had a nice visit with everyone. Tomorrow morning I have to go to the endodontist to see what they are going to do about my tooth. I hope it's not another root canal but I am tired of chewing on one side! :-)
The rain is supposed to begin tomorrow for several days but that's okay. If it's not snow, I'm happy and it will help the plants grow. I hope you're all seeing signs of spring and renewal wherever you may be.
