I have a confession to make

Bob needs to fess up.  Time to clear the slate and confess.  Now don't get me wrong.  This is not one of those confessions that require 10 Hail Marys and 100 Our Fathers in order to be atoned.  Nope.  Not one of those.

Normally What About Bob? boasts a picture or more with every post.  Have you noticed there have been few?  Yup.  Nary a new photo.  Were you thinking, "What's up with that, Bob?"  Okay, so you weren't thinking.

For those who are regular to this blog and also regular in other ways (ain't a good dump just grand?), you'll remember that the old PC died a few months ago.  "BUY A MAC!" everyone screamed.  Along with their screaming were claims that Macs are easier to manage, less prone to viruses, etc. etc.  etc.   I had used a Mac for many years so I thought it was no big deal to return to that platform.   So I brought a Mac.  Big one.  Major screen.  All the bells.  Lots of whistles.

From the get-go I hated the Mac platform.  Hated it.  Without too many boring details on my Hate/Hate relationship with the new Mac here let's just say two things:

#1  Can't teach an old dog new tricks.  Woof!

#2  Windows visa vie PC is a superior operating system.  Been there.  Done both.  I know this.

So I gave Wifey the big Mac.  Okay, okay....slow down.  Not that Big Mac.  The computer Mac.

I've been using Wifey's little Mini Mac for more than a month now that has little memory, can't post photos to the blog for whatever reasons, is a bitch to download stuff and is slower than a good dump outside in January.

It's been difficult to wait for the new year and the PC deals that come after Christmas.  I'm thinking Bob will have his new PC by the end of January if not before.  Just the thought of that puts a smile on my face.

Well I hope by now the new year arrived even at your slow Mac? ;-)

My first thoughts were to say..........never mind. You will love your PC.

Evalinn: - This Mac still is thinking 1999 and Y2K.

Laroo: I know, I know . . . You love Macs and I don't. And never the twain shall meet.
