Wistful Vista.....

Madame x got some good news today and some bad news today.

While on yet another quest to find videos for her Dad.... Mx bypassed Borders





to give Best Buy a try. Mx was helped by an eager young man in a blue shirt------------>















With his help, Mx selected two westerns, a drama and (a hang on to your recliner) a Horror

-<--------<-----movie.






Mx was pretty pleased with her selections.



Then...... as in Brigadoon.......... Mx found herself in the 'computer section', talking to another eager young man in a blue shirt.... and he was desperately trying to sell Madame x a computer. DESPERATELY Im tellin ya. Madame x was reticent and told him so....... a new computer was in her two year plan and this was just month one of her two year plan. Then he asked Mx what she mainly used her computer for... and thats when Mx got the bad news. Vista os probably wouldn't support several of her software programs

one in particular, which is a totally ed




$600.00 piece of software that Mx wouldn't know what to do without.





Whats.a.person.to.doooooo?Mx wailed.



""Well, we can still order a computer with an xp pro os, He soothed (and this is the good news). But, it would have to be soon as they are no longer being manufactured

two year plan, ditched.... new desktop computer on the horizon

I always end up looking at laptops in Best Buy. The thing is, once one of those Blue Shirts latches on to you, it's hard to shake them. What won't Vista Support?

Oy, lucky money grows on trees. Wait -- it doesn't?

Hi J...sent you an email..:)


BOSSY... Mx sees a money tree in your future. One day when the colleges are paid for and the weddings are paid for and the house is oh.so.quiet, you'll look into your bank account and you'll see what the money tree has left.
