Dog the destroyer

last night as I walked to my desk carrying a glass of liquid (oh, all right, you scolds, wine!), Jack the dog hurtled himself down the stairs from the back hallway, collided with me, and a good half-cup of wine splashed all over my laptop.

I mopped it up, turned off the power and propped it up to dry overnight. This morning, when I tried to turn it on, the blue lights flashed, the screen lit up hopefully, and then it went dark and the speakers emitted a high pulsing, keening sound.

It is no more.

Stay tuned.

Don't give up!

My winetop came back to life for a good year and a half, at least.

Victory through inertia
For the first time since Vegas, the winetop booted up today.


Then it died, and was replaced.

But it has risen again!

We had an accident with hot tea and a laptop. The laptop never turned on again. It was a full cup of tea.

This is why we can't have nice things!

I knew Thunder would bring up the winetop!

Expensive dog!! But we love them, don't we!!

By the way, love your lettuce photo - so beautifully arranged, buying one would disturb the pattern!
