cure for CRS

I spend a lot of time with him, and noticed he was acting older than his age, moving slowly, sluggish. His one track mind was more obstinate than usual. He would outright balk at sudden changes in direction or new ideas (a common male trait, but worse than usual).

He went in for a checkup, a possible virus infection. An incidental diagnosis was made - memory loss.

The doc said the cure might be expensive, but something had to be done.

The operation was scheduled. My heart was in my stomach when the procedure began, hoping for success, but dreading the risk of losing him altogether. My husband assured me all would go as planned.

Earlier in the week, Buddy had gone to his favorite shopping portal - ebay - seller of all things, even a cure for memory loss. He then proceeded to open up the back of my computer. He moved the dust bunnies around and plugged in the new memory chips. We held our breath as the little guy went through his wake-up ritual.

Now he is moving fast, jumping from application to program to mail, zip, zip, zip. Open more windows? No problem! Work faster!

Thanks to Dr. Buddy for making my world a better place.

I really thought you were talking about your husband or your pet. Had me going also for about 30 seconds, and I then I remembered you posting about a computer virus. Very funny.

Isn't it great when we have our own resident IT guys at home? Love it.

Merry Christmas to you two love birds.
