Don’t worry, this story has a happy ending

So, if you are one of my nine(?) Reglear Nucular Taggers, you may have come to know that I recently had a wee bit of a moisture problem with my trusty old laptop and had to get it fixed and it is now clean and beauteous and works like a charm.

This afternoon… We got to Hoton Lake and I could see that there were bottles containing adult beverages hanging about so I decided to get a glass, er make that a plastic cup, of whine and take it out to my freak-out chamber aka the Lyme Lounge where I could work on my blahg in peace. There’s been some weird I-couldn’t-make-this-stuff-up kind of cFam stuff going on the last couple days and I knew that 1) the GG and the Lady of Linden needed to talk and 2) they didn’t need my input. I can hear them talking (in the cabin) but I can’t hear the words, which is probably a good thing.

Anyway, I grabbed what I thought was a sturdy plastic cup and a bottle of whine and headed out to the Lyme Lounge. And then. When I poured some of the whine into the cup, it immediately began streaming out the bottom onto the table RIGHT NEXT TO MY NEWLY REPAIRED LAPTOP! The cup had a blasted HOLE in it! SOMEHOW, I managed to get the cup outside the trailer WITHOUT getting ANY LIQUID on my laptop!!! There is a big spot on my skirt but my skirt is red so it isn’t all that visible.

I set the cup outside and headed into the cabin to get another cup. Apparently I looked quite determined because the Lady of Linden asked me if something was wrong. Well, yes, but it is a first-world problem. Except that, when I started to explain what had happened, the GG (who took care of getting the recent repair done) made a face like he had been electrocuted. IT’S OKAY! NOT A DROP OF WHINE TOUCHED THE LAPTOP!!! !!! !!!

This quick-and-dirty pic shows our setup here. On the left is the cFam cabin, I mean the rebuilt cabin, not the moldy old one. On the right is the Lyme Lounge, where we are sleeping for the weekend (it’s okay, we like to sleep in the Lyme Lounge) with the Ninja tucked in behind it. That’s the neighbors’ cabin behind the Lyme Lounge and Ninja. And behind the photographer what you can’t see is the lake, dock, and Pontoon Bote.

    Oh, the irony of that wine trying to get on your newly fixed laptop! Glad it didn’t succeed. Hope all is well in the family department. Always tricky.
