Last post we were about to leave Carson City on our way to Lone Pine, we decide to take the dogs
for a quick walk, that's when we noticed a large swelling under Jake's armpit and up on his shoulder.
Jake has a lot of lumps but nothing the size of this one. We were lucky enough to get an appointment
with the Docs Veterinary Hospital in Carson City, the swelling was a lymphoma. The vet decided
to treat it with antibiotics, in case he had an infection. He's finished his two weeks of antibiotics,
some of the swelling has gone down, although he has had some swelling of other lumps. He isn't in
pain and he is eating well most days. Jake is almost 12, which is pretty old for a big dog, so we keep
our fingers crossed that he will stay mobile and pain free.
A day later than planned we headed for Lone Pine, what a beautiful drive, the road , Highway 395
was good most of the way and the traffic was light. We spent the first night boon docking just off
Mount Whitney Portal Road, our Verizon signal was poor to nonexistent.
The next day we moved to Tuttle Creek Campground for seven days. The mountains were
spectacular, the weather was good, other than one rainy day.

Then Windows 10 crashed or something. One morning I turned on the computer clicked the start
button and got a message about a critical failure that windows 10 was repairing, a few minutes
later another message came up that that the repair was almost done then I could restart, so I waited
until it said it was 100% and restarted the computer .... and got the same message about the repair,
waited again, restarted again got the same message. Finally a message came saying that a reset was
needed I had two choices I could keep my personal files and lose apps or I could have a complete
reset and not keep my personal files. I chose to keep my personal files.
The reset happened my personal files are there, but everything else is gone. Chrome , Picasso, I can't
upload pictures because it doesn't recognize my camera I guess. I haven't reinstalled Chrome because
I don't know what caused the crash in the first place. Yikes!
So I loaded my pictures on to Skips computer emailed them to myself and I am accessing blogger
from Internet Explorer, where I have to got to get my mail because Windows 10 doesn't support
Shaw webmail or blogger.
Sorry this is so long, for once I had something to say.
Keeping safe and enjoying what nature has to offer is all good.ReplyDelete
Kathy upgraded to Windows 10 but I kept Windows 7, Guess who has the most problems?
It's about time.
Yep sure do like that header photo alright. Think you are in the same campground we were when we were there. Just the greatest 360* views all round. Just gotta love those Alabama hills. Hope we can get back there & on up to the Bishop area sometime. We've been lucky with Win 10 so far but I miss some of the convenient features Win 7 had. We've never had Chrome & Edge is working fine for us......ReplyDelete
The header photo was taken in Bryce Canyon. Just wanted to say we both downloaded windows 10 at the end of July. I quite like the it, except I like to use google search engine. Never had a problem until the day I turned it on and they told me I had a problem they were fixing. They couldn't fix it and said I had to do a reset (or refresh) They removed everything that didn't come with windows 10. Google Earth, Picasso, etc.Delete
we haven't upgraded either..more because of the data it uses to download..ReplyDelete
great pictures of the mountains at Lone Pine!
hope Jake is feeling ok.
Nice pictures and Hope jake feels better.ReplyDelete
Suzie has had no problems with Windows 10, g mail and Google chrome works fine for her as well as blogger.
Good luck with you computer.
