Just a Couple of Notes...

First, a note to tell you that our 10-year-old desktop computer has gone to meet its maker, along with my entire address book and any emails sent to me before today.  Yeah, it's a bummer, but it's not the end of the world; I'll survive. Plus, I had a feeling this was going to happen and had backed up all of my personal files/pics a week ago, so I have that, at least. Just thought I'd let you know in case you contacted me recently. I'm figuring out how to get emails via my laptop, but so far can only receive email.  I'll keep working on it...

Second, an answer to Thousand Words Thursday photo question.  Your answers cracked me up, but for the record, we no longer have a cat. The buckets are used for this...

I'm surprised I've never posted about the annual 4444's family maple syrup operation! Stay tuned...


  1. Sorry to hear about your PC. The maple syrup operation....too funny!

  2. OK... I am now jealous!!! REAL maple syrup!!! YUM!

  3. Sorry about your computer but sounds like it is a blessing in disguise.

    Happy weekend Mrs 4444.

  4. Oh yum, I love me some real maple syrup candies...the ones that just melt in your mouth! So good.

    Have a great weekend!

  5. Oh baby, I'll cook up some flap jacks and be right over. Just let me know when the syrup is ready!

    May God bless this day and have a fab weekend!!!

  6. Syrup-WOW. that is the collest thing!

  7. Very cool and I am so glad you are not the crazy cat lady

  8. Totally sucks about your computer! At least you did a recent back-up!

  10. Sorry about the computer. It's a good thing that you had a backup of everything. I should probably do that too since it has been a while.

    The maple syrup is cracking me up...and making me hungry!

  11. I lost all of my emails a few times - contact info and everything - so I started using gmail. It's there for me on any computer, no matter what. I sound like a commercial, but I've been in love with gmail for years. :)

    I love carbonite, too - it backs up your files every time your computer is connected to the internet. you don't have to do anything.

    OK, enough of my product endorsements :) How funny that you use the kitty litter buckets for the gathering of the sap.

  12. That is SO cool. And the fact that you have the giant clean on the front of the buckets makes me feel better about putting food in them ;) So what do I have to do to get a taste of this famous 4444 syrup?

  13. oooo ummm, litter flavored syrup...well that's a new one.

    never seen litter buckets used...seen a lot of other types of buckets used but not litter buckets......

  14. 10years old? yikes! Thats 100 years in computer life.

    Wow, maple syrup? What doesn't the 4444's do?

    That's neat!!

    I'll let you pour some on my waffles.

  15. Oh, that's what they are for.I did not know you made syrup, how cool! I just made pancakes for supper, someone I clean for makes maple syrup and gave me a couple jars. I wanted to quick use up the last jar because I give the jars back and I clean there tomorrow...hope she gets the hint, lol.She is super generous, I know it is alot of hard work!!!!


Your 2 cents...
