    Hey scrappin' grannies...

    This one's for you


    The computer swallowed grandma.
    Yes, honestly its true!
    She pressed 'control' and 'enter'
    And disappeared from view.

    It devoured her completely,
    The thought just makes me squirm.
    She must have caught a virus
    Or been eaten by a worm...

    I've searched through the recycle bin
    And files of every kind;
    I've even used the Internet,
    But nothing did I find..

    In desperation, I asked Google
    My searches to refine.
    The reply from him was negative,
    Not a thing was found 'online.'

    So, if inside your 'In-box,'
    My Grandma you should see,
    Please 'Copy,''Scan' and 'Paste' her
    And send her back to me.

  2. LOL! good one, Elena!

    I guess you could say I'm a granny with a virus. The symptoms are 1) urgent need to check my email and DD first thing when I get up; 2) lack of interest in cooking or baking because it takes me away from the computer 3) a feeling of anxiousness if I'm away from computer access for more than a few hours and 4) excessive thinking about possible scrapbook page ideas throughout the night.

  17. this has been up for two days, Elena and I am just now seeing it!!!

    I'm afraid that I'm guilty too, just like Merr.

    I would go to the doctor about my virus, but I'm afraid that they would send me to a 7-stop program and make me find a substitute for the computer! Yikes. There are times when I'm with the eight grands that I would love to be in the recycle bin where it is quiet!!!
