Hey All,
Well, it has finally happened.

The Scorcher (the computer) has finally given up the ghost.

Am at my neighbor Robert's computer writing what will probably be my last post, a least for a while.

Don't know exactly what will be done, but didn't just want to disappear without you all knowing what had happened.

BTW, went out this morning at 8:30 a.m., gave Lorrie three squirts from her Carburetor's Accelerator Pump, turned on the Run Switch, and activated the Start Switch and she STARTED RIGHT UP! So Lorrie is well on her way to being reliable again.

It's been a joy being able to communicate with you all.

Hope this finds you all doing well, and taking excellent care.

I'll hang in here if YOU'LL hang in there.

JC

Well dang JC, time to find another 'puter, and they can be found cheap. Just look at the likely places when you get a chance (Craigslist etc) Hope you are not gone for long, and can get back up and running again....

I just got my daughter a used Refurbished back-up computer for her shop for $100.00.
The guy had two at that price and if this had happened earlier I could have got it and dropped it off when I go to MD Anderson in Houston in about a month and a half for a checkup.

My wife manages a Goodwill retail store here in north Florida. They offer some great deals on used computers. Usually get a nice set up for $100.-$125. If there is one one of their stores near you, it would be worth checking out. Good luck!
