It was the Night before the Night Before Christmas

It was the Night before the Night Before Christmas
and all through the house
not a creature was stirring
except for

eight large dirty yellow oxygen breathing firefighters from Columbus. One of them looking a lot like Josh.


I heard the fire siren and though, there goes Josh somewhere as he answers ALL fire calls no matter how trivial and about 15 minutes later DJ gets a text saying there is a house fire about a block away from us. 

Then I hear more sirens and figure this might be something larger then a smoke alarm so I go outside and see flames shooting into the air about a block away.  WHOA!!!  

I run up the hill and it's the last duplex on Ridgeway.







While I'm there I shoot a lot of photos - get home and as I'm working on the images my laptop with all the sophisticated software for my little photo business . DIES!!!!

DAMN IT. 

Luckily three days earlier I purchased a NEW desktop computer but it's basically empty and I have no way to get Photoshop CS3 on this computer and all of my photos are shot in RAW which needs special software.  grrrrrrrr

ANYWAY - back to the fire.

Columbus Firefighters Battled Blaze Thursday Night

---------------------------------------------------

While on vacation I have learned something about blogging and my writing style.  It only happens early in teh morning.  IF I say I'll blog later in the day . . it never happens.  Take today for instance. I've been up literally 10 minutes and BAM - I'm halfway coherent.  If I waited another couple hours . . .for get it.

It's been a busy week.  We help Suz move back to Columbus from California. WELCOME BACK SUZ.   No one ever leaves Columbus! Part of them will always be here. 

OH - I was SO excited to get a new computer and move the weather station to it - HOWEVER - the weather station is so old the only cable that works ONLY WORKS in the old computer - DAMN IT!!  You have to be kidding me! 

I have so much software to try to find.  This new computer is amazing for $399 with 4 gig of RAM - my old desktop I think has 512K  LOL

OH - and there was a Christmas Miracle.  That thing DJ has been looking for of a few years was found - it's all I'm going to say at the moment. But it is a very very good.  HAPPY TIMES!



Have a wonderful weekend and Merry Merry Christmas.
