My son's computer. This picture he drew is on his desktop. His "nickname" (although I've never heard anyone but him use it) is Ghost, and that's what is spelled above. I know it's kind of hard to see, but he's drawn many variations on the theme, and they're all kind of fun. The G is that lighter green piece on the left side; the S is white--you can probably see that one fairly well.
Of course, I've been referring to my son as Soccer Son for years now, but there's some news that might change that. He's recently started playing for a men's semi-pro football team called the Warriors. As a kicker, of course! He was a kicker in high school too, but his best friend, Jim, had the better foot and got more playing time. This should be interesting to see!
Soccer Son, by the way, admitted to downloading that virus; hence, his willingness to let me borrow his computer for the time being. The virus "thing" is called Personal Security and looks much like Windows security--similar graphics and colors. It tells you it has detected a virus and prompts you to run a scan, then it installs itself and blocks you from getting on any site that can help with downloading something to clean it off. I tried several different things, but none of them worked. And, of course, it wants you to pay to "download" their program, although even that doesn't get rid of it.
On the quilting front, I haven't done much this week because of poor health and a general lack of enthusiasm and energy--I hope that changes soon. I DID finish this little scrappy quilt though--at least the top. The colors still look weird and washed out here, and I don't have any version of Photoshop on this computer, so I can't even try to adjust it. And, by the way, I haven't heard from Lurking Linda, the scrap winner--Linda, please email me your address, so I can send you some goodies!
I've been asked whether Stitch is getting big. Well, yes, he IS, but he's still skinny enough to fit under the acrylic sewing table extension. Here are a couple photos of him, learning to sew.
Hubby was commenting the other day that all of the cat toys seem to have disappeared, so I bought some jingly balls at the grocery store, and gave one to Stitch. First thing he did was to bat it under the hutch in the kitchen. When I went to scoop it out, look at what I found!
He's always been a little kleptomaniac, especially when he was a kitten! And Spike used to bat around tea bag wrappers and steal Hubby's hard candies, and there were quite a few under there. Believe it or not, that's not even the entire "booty"--I kept pulling more and more out!
As you may imagine, I'm very anxious to get my own computer back, but it's nice to have a "loaner" at least! Since I have no "favorites list" on this computer, I'd appreciate it if you could leave me a comment so I can follow the links to your blog and see what you've been doing! Happy weekend everyone!
