I am Back!!
Seems the dear young man at Embarq didn't send my order in for a new modem. I called this evening and got another young man that was very sorry to tell me the modem wasn't on its way. He felt so bad he ordered it right then and gave me a order number. He also felt bad or else didn't want to hear me cry about not having my computer that he transferred me to a Embarq engineer. I didn't know phone companies had engineers but I am a country bumpkin what do I know. Anyway, the engineer talked me through some steps to get my computer online for now and it worked and I am back online! It feels so good to be back at my own computer. It also feels so naked to have everything gone from my computer. My screensaver, backgrounds, my favorites, etc. But at least I am back and I can work on the other things! William and I made a mad dash to Dunn and met with Richard from Backyard Feed and Seed. Such a nice man! Wasn't able to meet his wife and son but it was very fun talking with him and checking out his store. Dunn is a Mayberry type town. Small but very clean and friendly. The feedstore is right downtown on a little side street. Its in its original building from 100 years ago! I almost brought some baby chicks and ducks home with me but decided to wait to see what my own hens and ducks hatch out. If you are ever in Dunn, NC stop by Backyard Feed and Seed and tell Richard Peggy the goat lady sent you. While there check out the thriftstores and neat little shops on main street. I know I will be going back when I have more time. And to all that told me about photos being saved on blogger and other online sites. I know and am glad I can recover those. It was the ones I hadn't posted anywhere online I lost along with my soap business paperwork, addresses, etc. But I can get some back as family has copies of some and for the soap business it will just take time to get it all back. This time this old goat lady is going to be backing up..... EVERYTHING! Have a wonderful weekend and thanks again for all the thoughts and help. You guys are the best!!
