And I have absolutely no idea why. Except maybe cause I had that hard drive that went TU installed. Computer wouldnâ€™t even get through the POST process. Until I disconnected that drive. And still it just didnâ€™t work â€œrightâ€ anymore.
So, I downloaded and installed the latest Linux Mint and got that mostly up and running. Iâ€™ve had to update/upgrade almost every program I had installed. Even tried running VirtualBox before finally upgrading VMWare Player. (Which I should have done first.)
And my Dog is dieing. Took him to the Vet and had him checked out and they canâ€™t find anything wrong with him. X-Rays turned out fine. Lab tests fine. Exam shows nothing. So, he either has a brain tumor or some kind of cancer. Either way he gets weaker by the day and I think heâ€™s pretty much at the end. He doesnâ€™t appear to be, nor act like, heâ€™s in pain; thank goodness. Just getting weaker.
So, tomorrow at his follow-up weâ€™ll probably have him put to sleep. I am seriously bummed about it. Iâ€™m not really an animal person, but, Jackâ€™s been with us 11 years now and is a member of this family. Funny how one can come to care about a stupid Dog. And, yes, I cry every time I watch him wobble around or lay prostrated cause he hasnâ€™t the strength to stand. Iâ€™m gonna miss him. A lot.
Oh, great. Prodrome. Again.
Made beef stew for dinner and the meat just melts in your mouth. Tasty too.
