Nantucket - August 15, 2007

Carol slept late - woke up at 6:00AM & I got up early - 7:00AM. Must be the Island air. Went for a walk to the farm and made the short loop. Got a phone call from Don & Anne - they were going to arrive later today, but Anne ended up in the emergency room with a diverticulartis attack & they won't be coming until Thursday or Friday.
It's now 11:00 and time for a trip to the Stop & Shop to stock the larder! I was planning to take a camera to the Shop & Stop to show how crowded it is - good thing I didn't since it was pretty empty. Not sure why, but noon is a good time to shop!
Didn't do much today - did pick a bunch of blueberries & made a pie but other than that a quiet day. Then I decided to install David's new HP printer. Now everyone that knows me knows I am a Mac person. When they first appeared I was the campus rep for Apple campus sales & have promoted them since. Every time I decide that there really isn't that much difference between Macs & PCs I end up proving there is. Neither CD worked to install the printer software on my Mac or David's PC but the downloaded version worked the first time on the Mac & I managed to print to the networked printer without any problems. Three hours later I was still trying to get the PC (Windows XP) to load the software. I finally got everything working, but I have to say it was far easier on the Mac side.
