First Snow and a Toy

Friday night it started to snow and when we got up Saturday morning it looked like a winter wonderland.

Our driveway is very long and Cliff went out to shovel it when I got a phone call from our friend Tom telling us he would be over with this tractor to give us a hand. What a relief that was.
Here he is,

A friend in need is a friend indeed

After the driveway was cleared of snow we had a quick lunch and then went to support a sign rally against the proposed ECO Depot that the CVRD wants to ram down our throats.

Finding the roads in good condition we decided to drive to town to do a bit more shopping. We went to Canadian Tire and after that stopped at Future Shop where I bought my new toy, an iPod Touch. The service there was excellent. A young lady by the name of Jenelle showed us the iPod and could tell us a lot about it.
When we got home I tried the new toy out. It took awhile to be able to get to my email but I finally figured it out after finding a PDF Users Guide on the internet. Because I had been working on that until nearly 11 last night I was so wound up that I hardly had any sleep at all. It is an affliction of mine, when I have something on my mind I cannot sleep.
This morning I finally got around to transferring some audiobooks from the library to the iPod but unfortunately it did not work. According to the instructions I need iTunes 7.4 version which is one that is already 3 years old. The one that I had to download for the iPod is the latest version.
Since being able to listen to audiobooks on the iPod was the first priority for me I think I will return the iPod Touch to the store and buy some other MP3 player. I am really very disappointed.
That is my sad story for today.
Good night everybody ☺

Is your computer a Mac or PC? You should go to the library and check it out to be sure you're using the right download format. I just took the course at the library on Saturday. You should have no problem downloading to the ipod touch.

I can't believe you guys had snow before we did!

Oh, no, ask Rick if there is some other way than returning your new toy!

Wow! That's a lot of snow. None here in the Georgian Bay area. Yet!
