Brrrrrr...we've had some snow the last couple of nights.  Not a lot but the temps have been downright cold.  Tomorrow it will be in the 50's again.

Megan had a great time in San Diego.  We went to my brother's house on Thanksgiving.  I made Megan's turkey and stuffing, as usual, but all in all, it wasn't that bad of a day. 

Megan left to go back to school tonight.  I can' t say I'm totally sad.  She is just so full of energy, emotion, etc.  She's tiring to this old  I have some pictures from Thanksgiving.  I need her to send them to me.  She didn't have her cable to transfer them here.  Anyway, I seriously need to lose some weight.   I was looking at pictures from the past two years of myself and what a difference...ugh.  Not sure how I'm gonna do it but I will.


I'm just putting in some snags as I go along.  Once again, AOL disappeared from my computer.  When I went to the AOL downloads, my only choice was 9.1.  Oy, I hate new things.  I had no intentions of downloading 9.1.  I was actually quite satisfied with VR.  My computer seems to freeze  a lot with 9.1 plus my downloads aren't working right and the Paint Shop is acting up.  I noticed my animations in my journal go fast and then slow; sort of on the spastic side.  Do they look normal to you?  I'm not even sure how this snow is going to show up.  It may just be a coincidence that this all started after the new download.

This last graphic is a SNAG or TAG.  Glad you all had such nice Thanksgivings.  I planned to put my tree up today which started the live vs. artificial debate once again.  We are going artificial because Mom had no volunteers.  Have a great week to come.  LOL....Nov 25th means one month exactly until Christmas.


                                    AND NOW




                            YOU'VE ALL BEEN



SNOWBALLED ONLINE....Join in on the snowball battle.


I saw this in Tracy Latte'Dah and then Bea's Beas's Wanderer.  I had to laugh and join in......

HUGS  Chris

Yep, I got clobbered again! This snowball fight is gaining momentum here in J-land. We have artificial tree, too. I may put ours up next week, with the beginning of Advent. I need to lose the weight too... it seemed more obvious to me after I saw my sister and her husband, knowing what she had to do to lose it. She looks great, and now she is smaller than I. But I'll work on it... I will. bea

astoriasand said...

Glad you had a nice Thankgiving Chris.I hope your pooter now stays ok!! it's a bummer when things keep going wrong isn't it? The tags are all lovely The snow is beautiful just like real on that first tag.I adore it.I love the ones too in the sidebar.They make your journal look so pretty and Christmasy.I am happy Megan is home safe and sound.Artificial trees are nice,no mess, no hassle the smell of real ones are lovely but no matter how much you pay for them they still do not last long in my eyes or stop shedding.All these they say are sprayed still shed I have had them over the years.Yehhhhh someones Tree is going up  LOL!! Go on Chris be the first LOL!! Sorry you do not like your weight.I have put lots of weigh on since living at the coast and I dont like it either.People tend to say oh! your not fat.But I think l it's how you feel yourself.Losing weight after a certain age I have found is the hardest thing to do .Good luck anyway whatever you decide I wish you well.Take Care God Bless Kath

pharmolo said...

Good to hear you enjoyed your Thanksgiving. The snow is falling normally in your animations, so I think you've got a bout of AOHell.

happysunshien said...

love your graphics!  love em!!  We got our tree up yesterday :)  and we went for a real tree...I think in the       17 years we have been together we have only had artificial 2 years.....

Can I have the last one with Kelly? :)


tpiez4me said...

Poor AOHell........and Chris.  I hate when I have to reboot something that way.  I like VR and there is a new beta being tested "Helix"  -- that one seems nice.

We have had snow (light) and temps in the 30s since Wed. Tomorrow and the rest of the week is supposed to be in the 50s. I'll be lucky if I can get the lights up on the house and the tree brought in. My DH is such a scrooge. Have a great week!
Luv ya. Barb

I did see pink snowflakes fallilng, so that is working.  My poor sister is having disconnect problems big time and can't find the cause but she has dial-up.  I so love my broadband. And I won't load AOL again because it is too apt to screw up.  I make do with the free e-mail one.  It does everything I want it to do except make links.  It hasn't let us do that yet, so I just write them out by hand.   I try not to ask too much of my computer hoping that will keep it happy as I am mad at Dave so it would not do for it to act up.  He is my computer fix it guy.  Gerry

cyndelouwho22 said...

Hi, Chris!
    Your animations are working quite smoothly, as far as I can see.  Your graphics are just awesome!  I just love the ones with snow...I really love that one with the angel in it!
    Thanks, Chris!
