Monday Monday.....

When we were still working in our business I used to go to bed on Sunday night dreading Monday morning. I used to call every Monday "Mad Monday". It tended to be the busiest day of the week for projects usually always started on a Monday..we all needed to regroup after having two full days off etc etc. It just wasn't a day I looked forward to. Now I seem to love Mondays..because to me every day is Saturday!!
This morning after coffee, putering, house cleaning and showers and two loads of laundry done, we headed off to Wally World to pick up a few necessary items. And I needed a new SD card for my camera. Now theres a story for you.
I had purchased a pack of (2) sd cards (pny brand) last week and my mac wouldn't read them :( previous memory card was cracked at the top and I thought it was time for a new one. But Rick's PC would read them mac would still read my old one tho my lexmar. Very while at walmart today I picked up another one an SD san and my mac still wouldn't read it but Rick's machine would. So I concluded its not the card reader on the mac, because it still reads the old beat up can't be the new cards because Ricks Acer laptop reads them..humm is it a Mac thing?
Rick, being the brains of our equipment, got a flashlight and looked in the little slot and sure enough, there was a piece (the top) of the old beat up card in there. Hence why it would read the old, but not the new. The new card apparently wasn't getting in all the way, and the old one was because it was now 'shorter'..who would even think to look for that problem. He fiddled with it somewhat (while I prayed please don't break my macbook) dug in there with a toothpick trying to dislodge it-(while I prayed please don't break my macbook)..then being from the old school, whittled the toothpick to make it skinner (wish he was able to whittle me)..and ta-daaaaa he got it out. Now my macbook reads all these new cards. Yipeee hes not only good looking he is handy.!!!! Personally I think he was just getting tired of uploading my pics to his machine them downloading them onto the external hard drive so I could load them on my mac. So I ask you how smart is my man??
Debbie and Ken came for coffee after supper and around 7pm Dee and Jim arrived to play Euchre. They just left a while ago-and we are settled in for the night. And where did the day go? Who knows..I sure don't. 
Sorry I don't have any pictures today, you wouldn't want pics of walmart, or laundry so we'll save the pics for another day.
Hope you all had a great Monday and that you all have a great week. Stay safe out there.

“Life is like a party. You invite a lot of people, some leave early, some stay, some laugh with you, some at you, some didn't come. But in the end, after the fun, there would be a few who would stay and help clean up the mess with you. And most of the time, those were the ones who didn't even make the mess: ) How true this is!!! “


  1. Glad you got that all figured out! Now enjoy the camera and the computer!

  2. That is totally WIERD!! I would never have thought to look in the card slot. Good thing you have a Mr. Fixit onboard.

  3. I dislike Sunday nights especially when there is a Monday morning to follow it!

  4. Oh yeah! Sunday nights I start to get in a bad mood, then on the way to work on Monday it's worse. By Thursday it's coming back...the good mood that is. I can't wait until everyday is a Saturday :)

  5. I like Monday much better now...and since people are back at work, everything is less crowded.

    Glad you got the memory card figured out.

  6. Today is my Monday after the MLK holiday here, that's exactly how I felt last night. Looking forward soon to everyday being a Saturday. Glad Rick was able to fix the Mac for you. I would say he is very smart to figure that one out. Nice way to end the day with friends.

  7. Great fix by Rick on that SD card - that could drive a guy crazy!!

  8. I had loved my job so usually Monday wasn't too bad but now everyday is like a holiday!!! ☺☺☺
    Have fun & Travel safe

  9. Great new philosophy, every day is Saturday!!! Love it!

    Way to go Rick, master repair man!

  10. Way to go, Rick !!

    Isn't it funny how sometimes poking around a bit will get things figured out.

    Now you have lots of memory cards to fill with photos ... LOL

    Take care ... Trent

  11. Glad you got your Mac fixed. I felt the same way about Sundays leading to Mondays before. Now everyday is a happy day with plans made after we get up. Your palm tree bedroom set looks great!

  12. Great post!! I was going to suggest that you lay hands on the Mac, didn't think of a flashlight and a toothpick. If Rick ever finds a way to whittle you, please ask him to send the instructions to Michael. I need some serious whittling!! I read the whole post to Michael and we had a good laugh. We are Mac people too. My DVD drive does not work sometimes, maybe I should get a flashlight and a toothpick!

  13. Great work with the toothpicks Rick! That is something learned should we have problems with our laptops. Thanks!
