Scenic Route Anyone?

I had just taken Belto out to relieve him after feeding him dinner, and after he did his business, things became interesting.  Belto blew right past the dumpster I was shooting for, and I am pretty sure the dumpster we found was not the one I was wanting to find at this point.  When I had turned around to head back to the sidewalk, I realized that we were way off from where I thought we were.  So, I turned around again, and Belto and I began heading back the other direction.  Of course, I did not have my phone on me, so calling Lacy to come find me was out of the question.  So, Belto and I wandered a little bit until we found ourselves by the laundry room.  Belto clearly knew where he was at that point ,and so did I.  We did a 180 and made tracks back to Lacy’s apartment without a problem from there.  Not one of Belto’s best nights focus wise, but he did well once we made it to somewhere where he knew he was.

Computer Playing Possum

I had fired up my HP this morning knowing that there are quite a bit of things to get done today including uploading a YouTube video and recording another one.  I then went back to bed once Belto finished his breakfast to let the migraine meds finish wearing off, but little did I know that things were not going to go as I had planned.

I hopped out of bed around 1:30 this afternoon, and after taking care of Belto, I went to my computer to get ready to start getting things done.  First task was to launch Outlook and read a blog post one of my friends posted, but I discovered that I was getting no speech from my computer.  After trying to get System Access to restart and still hearing nothing, I attempted to restart the computer.  This led to a discovery that the computer was completely dead.  So after I had checked all the connections to make sure that everything was plugged in correctly, I tried to fire up the computer again.  No dice.  So, I then looked closer at the power adapter and to my dismay, I had to come to the conclusion that it had died because the converter was not even the slightest bit warm, which it would usually be if it is working.  Once the replacement arrives, hopefully, I can get back to some of the things that I cannot do otherwise.
