Amanda’s New Car

FamilyTechnology

Well, check it out.  Looks like Amanda bought herself a Christmas present – a new car!  She traded in her 2012 Nissan Versa for a new 2017 Altima.  That’s her old Versa just under her elbow.  The Altima is really nice.  It has all kinds of space-age, high-tech features.  Sort of an iCar with dual exhaust.

I, on the other hand, bought a 2002 Ford F-150 pickup with 137,000 miles on it a few weeks ago.   I put in a new radio today, because, you know, music is nice.  And since  I’m an idiot, I somehow managed to kill the lights on the instrument panel.  Joy.  That will probably take me a year to fix, give or take.

Anyway, Congratulations Amanda!  That’s one great looking car!

New Computer

FamilyTechnology

Hey!  I bought a new computer last night!  Not that I need one.  My Mac was only 10 years old – still good, right?  I got a Toshiba Satellite laptop and am having way too much fun.

I plugged the memory card from my camera into the computer in order to play with images, and of course, there were no images on it.  But I did find a 2 year-old movie of Nick’s first birthday.  So I played with that.  It was my first attempt to use the video feature on the camera.  Sorry.
