Little K&D searching for waves in Arizona

I started writing this post about a month ago and I'm just finally finishing it now due to a complete system failure!! This will be a quick one just to let you know that, YES, I am still here!

In February I mentioned that my laptop had to be sent in for repair twice so I was missing in action for a little while. Well, "third time's a charm" as they say (knock on wood!). I had to send my Macbook pro back to Apple once again.
If your screen looks like this it is very bad

The logic board that was replaced four weeks earlier had to be replaced again, as well as the hard drive, the optical drive, the optical drive cables, and a bunch of other cables. My misfortune at least timed itself conveniently enough that I had two weeks left on my AppleCare warranty so my completely rebuilt computer cost me nothing to repair.
A little bit prettier but still very bad

I've had a similar effect on some of my other electronics lately. My cell phone had to be replaced and I'm also on my third Epson Workforce printer in three months. I bought it new the day after Thanksgiving and have had to send it back for replacement twice already. So far, printer #3 is cooperating.

In the midst of shipping my electronics back and forth across the country, I also took a trip across the country and crossed State #28 off my list!  I have only 22 more States to go before I reach my goal of visiting all 50 of the United States!

Here are some shots of my trip to Phoenix, Arizona last month

Where's the ocean???
My adorable little Fiat rental car. Beep! Beep!


Hopefully, my technology troubles are behind me and I'll be able to post again on a more regular basis.
