My laptop is healed!

My MacBook Pro is back from the Apple hospital. So far so good, but it will take awhile for me to get back to engaging in computer time.

Saturday, Dec. 29, our Christmas celebration eased to an enjoyable end. Hubby and I, along with oldest son, our daughter-in-law and their youngsters, breakfasted at McElroy’s on the Bayou.

Youngest son and family had departed the morning before as work responsibilities beckoned. Even though they were not physically with us, I savored the knowledge that they love the McElroy’s breakfast tradition as much as the rest of us do.

We ended our leisurely breakfast with the Georgia Fab Four posing underneath a little oval plaque. It marks the level of Katrina’s storm surge that filled the Ocean Springs, Mississippi, restaurant August 29, 2005.
 Grands pose underwater, at least under where water was.

Still below Katrina’s storm surge level

Then they were on their way home to Georgia, and I was sopping up tears. Baboo and I returned to a quiet house and collapsed for awhile before we started preparing for the arrival the next day of my brother and his family from Virginia who helped us welcome the new year with love and laughter. 


  1. So glad to hear the laptop is up and running. I hope the memories you made during your family times sustain you until you are all together again!!1

  2. I am glad your holidays have been filled with family! The kids picture under the water surge plaque is a very clever idea.

  3. How nice that you had company coming the next day to take the empty out of the house.
    Loved the under water pic.

  4. yippe your laptop is home and well. and you had the family visit to help while it was gone. that is amazing the water mark over their heads. they are all so sweet.

  5. Happy to hear your apple-baby is back. It is awful to be without it!

    What a wonderful holiday season you've had! Isn't it just the best to be with family? :)

  6. Glad you are back on the Internet. Grandkids are the best, and yours are adorable.

  7. I'm so glad you're able to "compute" again! I was beginning to worry.

    Wow, that was a lot of water from Katrina's storm surge...and the grandkids are growing so fast!

  8. Always so sad to leave the grandchildren behind, and then one day they leave us behind. 3 of 4 of my granddaughters are finished with college now, although two are continuing to take courses. One of them even likes history and is taking more history courses.

    Joy is at Virginia Tech and doing well. She had 3 As and 3 Bs for her first semester. Pretty good huh?
