An Ant With A Magnifying Glass

 ~Day 1~

Do you remember in my last post when I tried to give money back to the bank,  had a leak in the kitchen and found hornets’ nests ?  Well,  it’s got a whole lot worse !

A couple of days after publishing the last post and while I was having fun answering your comments,  my laptop produced a million vertical lines,  made mechanical clunking noises,  went black and would not switch off.



~Day 2 to Day 11~

After a night of “praising” my Dell laptop I sent it away to be fixed locally.  As it didn’t work, the village Spanish computer man either sent it to Dell repair in Madrid,  or to a beach lounger on the Costa,  or to a laptop dancing club.  Who knows !

What to do ?  No laptop !!!  Arghh !!!


The cats don’t care.

I do have a Tablet … in a box !

I bought it a year ago and looked at it.  The cable sockets were so tiny that an ant with a magnifying glass couldn’t see them and none of my laptop cables would fit.  Too big !

I switched it on.  My vibrating hands tapped,  swiped,  squeezed and stretched.  Weird things happened.  Nothing did what I wanted.  Almost becoming an expensive frisbee I returned the Tablet to its box.

A year passed,  until now !



No laptop means no blogging …. an unboxed Tablet is a 1% chance of blogging especially as I have to start from scratch.  Oh boy !

I spent half a day trying to sign in to Gmail.  I knew my password was right … “gspot” … The word corrector had changed my email address first letters of my name to capitals,  not all letters in lower case and I hadn’t noticed !  This Tablet WILL,  by the time this is published,  become a very expensive frisbee !


Via a Google Search I found my blog.  I spent another half day trying to find where to Log In.  A stupid WP monkey hid it in the small “Follow” box at the bottom right of the page by clicking on the three dots.  I did remember my password … “Won’tPress” …


So here I am,  almost at the end of drafting this post.  I really do need to be a 12yo Tablet whizzkid and have nearby a 45 (not inches)-24-36 woman on whom I can tap,  slide,  squeeze and stretch (not necessarily in that order)…. my Tablet resting on her 45 degree slope.

I digress.  The writing on blog pages are either too tiny for an ant with a magnifying glass to read or it zooms in to 3 words on a page.  My vibrating hands !!  Oh boy !

(Insert ant with magnifying image here)

Can’t do it.

On trying to upload an ant with a magnifying glass image to Add New in the Media Library,  WordPress said that I needed their special App for my device.  I followed the instructions like the good boy I am.  Pressed “Install”.  Nothing happened.  In small red writing underneath, it exclaimed with glee  >>>

! Your device does not exist

Silly me !  Of course it doesn’t exist !  It’s a very expensive frisbeeeeeee !


Well,  how did I do ?

At least we can communicate,  can’t we ?  Sort of !

My next post will be in November as this Tablet is making me crazy !!  No change there then  🙂

      • Hello Caroline. Long time no see ! Fantaseeee, and a great idea. I have gone a long way since writing this post. The tablet has been ejaculated back into its box, hopefully never to be seen again as I have a brand-new laptop. Love it ! I can even draft a proper post with it (not that my posts are proper that is 😉 ). My latest post even has photos of me …. oh dear.
        I hope you have a lovely Christmas my friend. Big hug. Ralph xox ❤

      Whoa, I thought you were a whizz kid when you had your tablet here. I understand now why you don’t use your tablet to draft a post.
      When my laptop went wonky I thought it may need a new power or graphic card. Dell has told me that if they can’t fix it they will refund the money that they asked for up front. I am hoping that they will offer me a discount on a new one as the exchange rate is crashing. Oh boy !

  16. Dearest Ralph, although you have presented this setback with your usual
    characteristic ‘signature’ wit that instantly produces giggles and entertainment
    for the Reader, i m sure All of us can understand -and many already experienced-
    how frustrating and upsetting and inconvenient such an incident really is.
    I too have an apple ipad my man bought for me some time back
    and used briefly and gave up due to the constant challenges presented.

    As i am still dealing with similar problems with a newly arrived Dell Laptop
    due to old LT internet connection troubles and now having to learn and adapt
    from Win7 to Win 10 i can see that both of us are going through a stage
    of inconveniences that bring to mind the catchy title of
    (according to reviews, shallow porno masochistic trash or something?)
    “Fifty Shades of Gray” in regards to our hair! LOL! 🙂

    Hope your ‘Baby’ arrives back soon, intact and healthy so that
    it can reinstate your generous happy smiles and shiny eyes again
    and enjoy true fun with guilt free giggles with your entries!
    Of course there are no sources as reach as troubles for inspiring humour 🙂

    Perhaps your cats have ideas on how to get the tablet up and running. That is, if you bribe them with kibble or something. Although, they may just view the tablet as a new toy.
