Found the chip widget!

I was digging out the suitcase in order to pack for my next trip (Denver, STC Board meeting) and the widget for holding the camera's picture chip was buried in the bottom. Yay! I've downloaded the pix from the chip to my computer, but uploading them all to the picture website is going to take a while--there are a little over 200 of them to sort through. It'll take more time than I've got at the moment; gotta get ready to go to the Board meeting oh yippee skippee.

Hold that thought, beloved readers; I'll be back in a few days assuming the planes get there and back okay.

Back home at last

We arrived back in Eugene just before midnight on Monday, exhausted after a cross-country flight. It wasn't a bad flight, but it was long. I didn't get a lot of sleep, as I had to get up to deal with one of the cats, after which I couldn't get back to sleep. Annoying.

I've got about 150 pictures to download from the digicam and then upload them to the picture website I use, but I cannot find the flipping chip-holder for the camera's chip to plug it into the USB port on the computer. Well, we're not unpacked yet, so I'm hoping that it's still to be found, at which time I can download, upload, cross-reference, and post a lot of things here.

In the meantime, in honor of "Talk Like a Pirate" day yesterday, here's my pirate name and an opportunity for you to find out your pirate name.

My pirate name is:

Mad John Flint

Every pirate is a little bit crazy. You, though, are more than just a little bit. Like the rock flint, you're hard and sharp. But, also like flint, you're easily chipped, and sparky. Arr!
