White Dog and Quinn usually come and sit with me and we visit blogs together. They also oversee the posting of the day's White Dog Diary entry...one on each of side of me. This afternoon when I announced that it was "time to check the computer" both joined me and we caught up with what was happening around the DWB world. Without warning the computer suddenly kicked us off of the Internet...so we tried to reconnect and kept getting the timed out message...we rebooted; same story. Quinn drifted over to his space in the closet and went to sleep. White Dog and I tried opening Explorer again and going to a different site, still no luck...she wandered off to watch out of the window. Alone, I tried twice more and got nothing but frustration in return. So I decided to wait for the Mr. Computer (aka Steve) to come home and sprinkle magic computer demon eradicator over the System. I had to beg White Dog and OTHER White Dog to rejoin me and when the same problem resurfaced, they both immediately left shaking heads in disgust. Sensing that our computer's life was in danger, Steve fussed with the wireless router for a few minutes and then said "there!" So here I am, abandoned by White Dog and Quinn who were not about to be fooled again, writing this quickly for fear that I will be "dumped" again. Did I mention that this glorious electronic age is a blessing AND a curse!
