Nov 25 – My new laptop was a surprise from David.  He knew the netbook wasn’t enough computer, since it could barely deal with Photoshop and I use Photoshop a lot.  The desktop had crashed and burned.  So he stopped on his way home this last trip and bought this for me.  I was closing up the chickens when he got home so he ran inside and set it up on the table, which is the first thing you see when you come in our home.  He missed my gasp of surprise as he was playing with Phoebe outside, letting her do her greeting dance.  He got such a hug!  (the desktop picture is one I took in the Bahamas – the framing makes it perfect for such a purpose (I almost went with porpoise, but didn’t)
