Angel Kisses/Snag or Tag

                     

I'm finally starting to deal with the fact that Penny is not going to be around anymore.  Wierd because there was have a couple of times I was going to e-mail her something and then remembered I couldn't.  I can't even imagine what her family and friends are going through.  I do know she would not want us to mourn forever.

I had a long weekend which was just what the doctor ordered.  I'm on my second round of antibiotics and am starting to feel some energy again.  It's been in the 90's here for a week.  Actually, I love it; wish we had had this type of weather this past summer.  Love the heat but it's breaking tomorrow and getting more back to normal.

Now to AOL.....on Friday night, my AOL, once again, vanished totally from the pc.  This happened in April.  So, I went onto explorer to find an AOL 9.0 download, which is VR now but that's what I've had on here since April.  I uninstalled, reinstalled, made sure it opened and went to bed.  Got up Saturday morning and noticed my "you've got e-mail" had a distinct British accent.  I know how many pounds the jackpot is.  I get Shreddies ads at the bottom of my e-mail.  LOL..guess it's better than what Donna has at the bottom of hers.

When I write an e-mail, color, humor, favorite come up as spelling errors.  You see, it should be humour, favourite, colour because I'm writing British e-mails.  This is just cracking me up.  I could even find me a man from the UK on AOL dating.  Obviously, I downloaded the UK version of 9.0VR.

I figured Joey would get up Saturday and flip thinking I messed with the computer again.  He didn't really even notice which really made me laugh.  I will eventually download the US version.  I have it in my favorites.  BTW:  it took a few minutes for my favorites to pop up so I'm not in any rush to mess with the AOL again.

So, to my friends in the UK, enjoy those Shreddies.

I have a couple more entries of some snags and tags.  Nite all!   HUGS  Chris

That's funny everytime I get a download from aol it changes my email settings to US version which is relly annoying as so many words are spelt differently to Uk and I have to change the settings back lol. Will aol ever get anything right!

I didnt know AOL had  , Uk/US,,,VERSIONS Id be like you I would install the wrong one lol ,so pleased the antibiotics are kicking in ,and you ae feeling better ,Dont like shreddies! taste like chaff lol ...love Jan xx

gehi6 said...

I think that is funny. I almost downloaded the UK version myself until I decided not to mess with it aol for fear of messing up my online phone (not aol). I am afraid to touch it, so I make do with free version.  Better than having 9.0 version going crazy on me.  Glad you are starting to feel better.  Am going to snag a Halloween thing to head my story on the Larry and Billye latest.  They are till haunting the place.  Gerry

One time, I signed off of AOL and it was of course the english version.  The next day, signed on and it was the spanish version and stayed that way.  Now how does that happen?? LOL

siennastarr said...

My AOL thinks I'm Hispanic, off and on... lol  I will get everything in spanish.  Pisses me off.  I don't speak spanish, even if I am a native Californian and probably should! lol

I'm glad you had a nice long weekend.  Everyone needs one of those once in a while, especially if you haven't been feeling well, and needed the rest.

I'm so sorry we weren't able to get together while I was in PA, Chris.  I just got so depressed after Wednesday (and my fabulous FALL) that I didn't do much of anything but gimp around at my cousins house.. :(   I swear I am never going on vacation again! It's far to dangerous!

Love you
Jackie

eyesbaerle said...

Can you please make me one for Maria. It is such a cute taggie!
I am glad to hear that you get some energy back. Hope you will be all well again very soon. Hugs, Maria

Isn't AOL wonderful - you can speak a different language and never have to take a class. Happy to hear you got it all figured out. Have a wonderful day - Take care,
Katie

ktkamanski said...

P.S. If you ever need to talk or just need a lended ear for listening ~ I'm just an e-mails distance away! Take care of you,
Katie

Hi Chris,

I'm so sorry about your friend, Penny.  I didn't know her, but have heard many wonderful tributes to her, she must have been amazing.  I know what you mean about starting to email....and then remembering you can't.  I lost a dear cousin a few months ago and have started to email or call her many times, and then had to remind myself it is no longer possible.  I still have her on my buddylist....can't seem to remove her name.

Take Care,
~Bilinda~

I'm glad you're feeling better Chris. It's so sad when we lose someone, especially when it's sudden like Penny's death. Funny how you downloaded the UK version of AOL! You'll just have to come live here now! Jeannette xx  http://journals.aol.co.uk/jlocorriere05/Welcometomytravels  

heavenlybama said...

Chris....you're right about Penny.  I miss her too.  Secondly,  I'm glad you're feeling better.  Very cute tag.  Could I get one with Dana on it plz?  Lastly......too funny about AOL.  It makes sense they have a British accent but it just seems too funny to me.  I thought they would have the same voice in all versions.  LOL
Hugs,
D

I hate AOL..its always something acting insane....i am glad you were able to get it reinstalled even if it is from the UK!
Always in my heart.

xxroxymamaxx said...

Chris, I am still sad over Penny too.  I can relate but you are right, she wouldn't want us to be so sad but we can't help it.  Sorry AOL is messing with you so much.  Love all the tags and snags!  : )  Love ya!!  Shelly
