Ruby (Red) Tuesday -- Santa came early this year, for Jim
This is my new Gateway laptop. I have not been using it much until now as I had to wait and renew my Norton antivirus for three computers this time.
The computer was a "bargain" as it is a discontinued model. Even though, it has three gigabyte (3GB) Ram and a nice 120 GB hard drive. The newer ones have more but this will be plenty for me.
I may keep it as my computer to use daily as it runs nice. I am liking Vista so far as well. I bought it to take on our jaunts and needed the price break so if it got stolen or lost I wouldn't be out very much (about two and a half months of my Ford retirement checks).
Here we have my friend's 1937 Ford Stake Bed truck. Herb restored it doing all the work, even the painting.
This is the third 1937 Ford truck he has rebuilt. At present he is doing a 1934 Ford car.
Mary is in charge there, you can post your own if you wish.
I have to say, I loved stake bed trucks. So handy for hauling hay and anything oddly shaped.
However that red PC is pretty nifty!
Great reds this week Jim!
losts of nice red stuff. I think I'd go for the car.
I'm not at friendly terms with Norton.
It is slowing my machine down and steadily commanding me to do this and that.
Gunnar had to reinstall the whole shebang.
Hubby and Daughter are swearing to Macs.
I insist that the old Tosh has to run another year.
But the Ford, so red and shiny, I'd even consider taking a driver's license.
guess you are right about my site being too full.
When Serina comes I'll get her help me remove the music.
Gunnar says he thought only Ferrari had red lap tops..
He has now installed New Norton for our three computers.
Before that I was a waiting stress wreck.
The Microsoft vistas go cheaply. I will not have my xp changed for vista.
I would rather go for a ride in the Fordie.
My uncles had two buses The Ford and The Fordie with similar noses to the red -38.
(They also had Chevrolets and a Studebaker even elder).
My cousin has spent a fortune trying to locate one of the Fords buried in a sand quarry.
Lots of happy memories attached to cars, because my granddad and my uncles would always embrace the whole grand-family and take us for rides.
I doubt I ever come to Texas, my family are living up north, Chicago, Seattle and Montana. (One first cousin also in Nebraska actually.)
My nearest plans are Amsterdam and anywhere in Italy.
Dreams are free.
My favorite Christmas song is by John Lennon ~ "So this is Christmas"
The blonde with the thermos didn't quite get it, did sha?, Take care,
I like the red, and it is perfect for Ruby Tuesday.
I hope you never lose it, and I hope it never gets stolen.
Happy belated Ruby Tuesday, Jim.
