Thankful Tuesday......

Mom and I are very thankful for a smart young man who knows all about computers at her work.  Last weekend (11/6) Big Gray started giving us crazy messages.  Then it would start a fancy, fast, countdown on the percentage of the drive it was checking. It was still running but Mom figured it might be getting sick. She was very glad she had prepared 7 days of post ahead time. Mom was finally able to write the entire message.  On November 8th she gave the message to a computer geek very smart young man at her work. He said lots of words that sounded like we might have to kick it to the curb have a memorial service for the Big Gray. She became rather frantic and must have looked faint because he said bring the Big Gray to him so that he could give it a physical exam run some diagnostics on it.
When it comes to the innards of the Big Gray, Mom is clueless and I take a naps.
She worries enough for both of us.

I'm happy to report the Big Gray is A OK.  Here I am, once again, helping Mom
 connect the dots cables to the right port.

Mom this one is purple it goes in the purple port not the yellow port.

Mom and I are very happy to have our life line to blogland back home safely!!!


  1. Well, I see your problem.
    You got a cat eating your computer. That's never a good sign! :)

  2. MAdi
    Glad that BIG gray is back in operation. Nothings worse than having a buster puter!!
    Good thing they have you there to hook it up again!! Gee....even a puter Diva??


  3. Hi Madi & Mom,

    We are very happy to hear that Big Gray responded to treatment and is fully recovered. It is always good to have a computer geek as a friend, you never know when a tech crisis might arise.

    And you sweet Madi, your talents never cease to amaze us. The next time we need to hook up computer wiring would you be willing to share you skills, we will compensate you for your time with catnip and treats.

    Purrs & Lots of Hugs,
    Cindi Lou and J

  4. That was a close one...good thing the computer geek...I mean smart guy and Madi was able to fix Big Gray :)

  5. Glad to hear this report...it's always good to read GOOD NEWS!!!! And for the smart young man....way to go. But Madi, I think I'd be the one that naps around here while Tahoe and Winston get it all workin' again.

    And here I always was told you fur babies are color blind...you proved us humans wrong now didn't you...knowing purple from black!!! Yes indeedy!

  6. You sure look like you know what you are doing, Madi! I am impressed.

    Your pal, Pip

  7. Now that is the bestest news I have heard all day! (i've been out of bed for 20 mins.) lol I would prolly run to the store and buy a new one right away!!!

  8. Madi,

    Without your expert help, Big Gray would still be broken...just sayin' ;)

    Woofs and Licks,
    Maggie Mae

  9. Oh, I'm so glad that Big Gray is OK. What a scary time. We are so dependent on this hardware and take it for granted until it acts up. I have to tell Blog Mom to make sure she has all the photos of me, Lola, safely backed up. I don't think she does.

    lotsa licks, Lola

  10. Whew! It's always most nerve wracking when the computer gets sick. My mom actually gets a little bit twitchy! I'm also most thankful that Big Gray made it through and is back home.

    Wiggles & Wags,

    PeeS. I think great minds must most certainly think alike!
    PeePeeS. Um, Cap'n Ripley has now gone through 3 paper bags.

  11. Yay! What would we do without you?


  12. Oh Madsters, you are one smart kitteh!! It's good to help the beans sometimes with these technical things (which are so easy for us), but the rest of the time it is best to let them think they are smarter than we are....it's the least we can do since they do give us good food and lots of love, right? Yeah. Purrs!! Glad you are 'back on the air'!! Lautrec and Tiny and Ellwood

  13. We think Big Gray was prolly fulla Diva Fur...MOL!

  14. I'm glad you helped Mom get Big Gray back working Madi.

  15. I bet you have the smarts to fix the big gray!


  16. What ever would we do with out our computer?

  17. This post made me nervous just thinking about being without my computer!!!

  18. Hi Madi
    Our Mom doesn't know a whit about computers either.
    And she has learned to do our post ahead of time too.
    She has a heck of a time keeping up with all the stuff that needs to be updated on the computer. Like Adobe has a new update today, so if you have Adobe be sure to do the update Madi.
    We are glad Big Gray is A-OK.


  19. We are glad Big Gray has made a good recovery and is feeling much better now.

  20. Whew! We're so glad you found a smart young man to fix Big Gray. Our mom is clueless when it comes to computer stuff too, Madi.

  21. Madi--Glad you were where the action was! Yeah for Computer Geeks! We love them!

  22. The smart young man sure its like our Hugo who always helps us with the computer!
    Glad he fixed it and now is working great!
    Good job snooperving your mom, Madi!
    Kisses and hugs
