You must have sent your rain Downunder, Karla - it's been raining most of the day here!

Today's Question(s):


When your computer "acts up" do you:
Fix it yourself ?
LOL, I'd probably make it worse!
Take it to the shop ?
This one - there's a very friendly - and patient - guy who works at the local computer store who always manages to sort things out for a reasonable price.
Call a friend or family member ?
Call in the "squad" ?
Other ?


Extra Credit Question:

lol ok fess up

What was the last thing that made you want to "Auction off " your spouse/SO/family member ?
I auctioned off my SO years ago!


Bonus Question:


Was/is anyone in your family a Boy Scout ?
Nope, not to my knowledge


Just for Fun:

Last time you used Valet parking ?
Gosh, the last time I clearly remember using valet parking was way back during a road-trip in 2004 - at the Casino in Mystic, CT. No-one offers the service in the little town where I now live. Mostly you can park right outside whichever venue you're visiting!

Hope everyone has a terrific Tuesday!
