Fall Days and Technical Difficulties...

In some parts of the world spring is thought of as a big relief.  The harsh winter is over, you can go outside again and enjoy the fresh air as the world comes alive again.  Just listen to those birdies sing!  Well... let me tell you, here in Texas, the first day of spring is just another hot day.  What we live for is AUTUMN! 

Ah, the bliss of walking out your front door and not fearing that your lungs will collapse from being roasted by the 115 degree air.  We cannot wait for the pumpkins and Halloween candy.  It means we can go outside again and enjoy the fresh air as the world comes alive again.
So... YAY FALL!!!!   We happily greet y'all!

Now for the techincal difficulties. 
Our son and daughter in law just moved to Pennsylvania with our two grandsons.  They have Skype and told us it was a great way for us to talk almost face to face for very little money.  So, DH and I went to Target and bought a camera with a microphone and yesterday evening we sat down together at our computer and downloaded Skype.  
We tried to download the program as quickly as we could because it was 9:45 p.m. our time and since there is a one hour difference in our time and Pennsylvania we might just be able to get a call in before the kids all went to bed since it was just 8:45 p.m. there.
Now...My DH and I are not idiots.  But, when it comes to trying to put things on our computer we both melt into not just idiots, but blithering idiots.
First of all, there IS a one hour difference, but we realized after a few minutes that it is one hour LATER there than it is here and when it is 9:45 p.m.in Texas, it is 10:45 p.m. in Pennsylvania.  So we knew we would not be able to make the call last night no matter how fast we got the program installed.
Then, after we installed the program, my husband went to check his email to see if we had installed it correctly.  Well, much to our dismay, we now have TWO accounts.  What the heck????? 
I don't know what we did, but it will have to wait until tomorrow because I had to work the midnight shift last night and after getting off at 7:00 a.m., I had to come back at 3:00 p.m. the same day and I am not up to mentally leg-wrestling with tech support.

Praying today for:
State of Alabama
Nation of Greece

Remember, Nana loves you!!!!!!
