I did it!

This morning we got to sleep in a bit, and when I finally rolled out of bed and found the coffee, I figured that I would take on the task of seeing if I could set up my new Lenovo Ideapad.  ( Judy did cleaning and laundry… yuck)

Was I surprised!  Have you heard of a program called Windows Easy Transfer… I didn’t… until yesterday… I found it installed on my new laptop and took a look at it. 

IT WAS EASY!  Just like they said it would be.  This program in about 2 1/2 hours and about 15 clicks of the mouse, had moved all my personal stuff from my old HP onto the new Lenovo… I was impressed… all my contacts, favorites, pictures, music… you name it, it moved it!  I highly recommend this program to anyone who wants to set up a new laptop, unless you live right next door to Rick from Rick & Paulette's RV Travels and get him to do it for you! (He is a wizz…)

I used our external hard drive to facilitate the transfer which all went very smoothly!  Loved it!

We took the Jeep Compass back to Gary and Shelly this afternoon, and had a visit with them.  On to Bracebridge where we were going to visit .with David and Angela, but not to be as they were off somewhere in the big world. 

We stopped on our way back to Orillia at Cumberland Beach, where our Niece Mindy and her Husband Sam live along with little Presley. They invited us to join with their gang for a BBQ this evening, which turned out great!  The weather was only so so today, cloudy all day and a bit cool, but that is what you get…

Little Presley had her water wings with her, but it was too cool for swimming today… don’t know what was on the TV behind her, but it looks a little weird.


Had a great shot of little Paige and Judy playing on a slide out in Ottawa the other day that I just found on my smart phone, so I will post it here, as kids seem to be the theme.


And here is one I took of Emmie being the ham, just for the heck of it!


Great day overall…

Till tomorrow…
