And the Winner IS:

Milkshake.



Hilary of the Smitten Image has come through yet again. For those of you not familiar with Hilary's blog, you should check it out - she posts amazing photos and always has interesting stuff on her blog. Unfortunately, the Bag Lady cannot post a link at this time, due to her balky computer, but there is a link in the sidebar.



The Bag Lady still has not determined what is wrong with her computer, so she is going to have to take it to the hospital. She will simply have to bite the bullet and miss out on a few days blogging. Sigh.

She is aware that she posted something very similar to this last Monday, but she managed to limp along for another week, and could probably do so again, but that would just be postponing the inevitable. So she will at least phone the computer place today and find out if they can have a look. If they are insanely busy, she will be back tomorrow but if they can get to it right away, she'll be gone a little while. **Sob**

Yay Milkshake!
Boo computer!

I hope the computer is fixed quickly and properly and you get back soon to the blogosphere where you belong.

the Bag Lady said...

Thanks, dfLeah, I hope so too.
Waiting for the repair place to open to find out if they can look at it today....

Hilary won the calf-naming contest? I'm shocked, just shocked! (It's a great name, and a well-deserved win.)

Sorry to hear about the computer--how frustrating. We'll miss you!

the Bag Lady said...

Crabby - yeah, it's a surprise! That Hilary - so clever!!
:)
You may be able to tell, the Bag Lady is having a wee bit of trouble getting her computer into the shop... it hasn't crashed completely and she can still blog... but sooner or later, she's actually going to have to use her computer to do some REAL work, so she has to let it go.

df Bag Lady,

Love the name.

Get the computer fixed and then the worry will be behind you!

We're going to MISS YOU while you're away from us!!!

Dawn said...

I speak from personal experinece here. When you take the computer in to be fixed you will experience "blogger withdrawal" symptoms. The most noticeable of these is the unshakable belief that the entire blogging universe has simply disappeared though your absence.

But even worse, you will suffer "stat withdrawal" symptoms. Any blogger unable to check their stat counter for a period of several hours begins to sweat, shake and become a burden to their nearest and dearest, and a pain in the bum for their local computer repair shop!

I know!

the Bag Lady said...

Thanks, Dawn - knowledge is power! I should be able to prepare myself for the withdrawal symptoms if I know what to expect!

the Bag Lady said...

dfTerrie - the Bag Lady is losing her mind - she could have sworn she answered your & SB's comments...sheesh!
The computer is going to have to wait a little while to go to the hospital - the Bag Lady needs it because she may have an order pending for a CartSmart Bag!!
Are you home from Florida now?

Scrumpy's Baker - thanks for the sentiment - you are going to start thinking the Bag Lady is just milking this for all it's worth! She really isn't...at least, not intentionally! She's too excited at the prospect of someone being interested in her bags to go away now!

Ooh, I like Milkshakes!

I hope you get your computer in & fixed soon.

the Bag Lady said...

Thanks, Reb.

Hilary said...

Well thanks Baggie.. I appreciate the plug. :)

I sure hope you get your machine healthy soon. And while you're at it.. switch over to high speed. I have some photos to post tomorrow and it's a bummer that they load so slowly for you.

the Bag Lady said...

Hey Hil - that was exactly what was in my mind!

Geosomin said...

Come back soon :)

Frank Baron said...

Hilary cheats. She thinks, instead of just reacting like normal people.

Good luck with the computer fix. Few things make me more anxious than when mine is out of the house. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.

I love the name and the pictures! Best luck, electronically speaking
