Oh ya, baby. (And I do mean that in the fondest of terms.)
I wanted to share this poster the other day with all of you, but my computer was acting up something awful. So awful in fact that I thought it was done.
I spent more than five hours dinking around with it, trying to get at my precious Tumbleweed Cotillion files with no luck. Then, just as I was about to throw myself on the floor of my office and scream and cry, the Sewing Queen of northern Nevada (my Mom) called. I was holding back tears as I told her of my problems, and she began asking me computer questions.
Her: Have you done a recovery?
Me: A what? (Was this my Mom, who I had introduced to my cheesey little Printshop Program just a couple of years back?)
Her: A recovery. A system recovery...um...is that what it's called? Oh, you know what I mean.
Me:(Letting out a looooooong, loud frustrated sigh.) Yes, I know what you mean, and no, I don't want to lose what I have and start over clean, I want what I already had!
Her: Not that kind of recovery. Oh gosh, what's it called? Listen. Go to...hmmmm...let me think now....Control Panel. Is that right? No, no wait. Programs..was that right? Let me see here...
Me: Mom...(very dramatically, with an eye roll she didn't see on the phone or she would have smacked me.)
Her: Yes, yes. Hmmm, yes. I think that's right. Yes! Go there.
Her: Programs. Accessories, system tools..see, it's there! System Restore.
Step by step she walked me through and ...she restored my files and saved my day!
You know, it's pretty darned cool when your Mom, one and half months shy of 76 can give you techie support! (I guess what they say really is true,in pretty much any situation, just "ask your Mother." Thanks Mom!)
The poster for our big faire is up above in this post (thanks to the sewing Queen!) and here's the scoop:
We're working overtime to make this upcoming Tumbleweed Cotillion our very best to date. Lots of fabulous vendors with great merchandise and inspiration galore!
