It was the Night before the Night Before Christmas
and all through the house
not a creature was stirring
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!!!!
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.
