Loopy at the Funny Farm

CYNDI:  Our 2014 ended with a flash and began with one.

MICAH:  For months we've had flashing banners on our screen from our monitor.

MERCI:  Those banners have become such a pain in the .... uh-oh, I better watch what I say.  Jan has a bar of soap and knows how to use it.

RUSTY:  Lately, the flashing banners begin even before Jan has a chance to log on in the morning and continue all day.

BUDDY:  It takes three forevers to do anything.  We can't read our mail, do a post or anything without this constant flashing.

PERCY:  The banners cover the middle of the screen and there's no way around them.  We have to just wait and try to do something in between flashes.  Nothing has worked, not even blowing in air in case it's dirty.

MARCUS:  I used to like the banners.  They're eye-catching and energetic - like me!  Only it's hard to read my fan mail with them.

SAM:  What fan mail?  You got a note from some female named Flo asking if you are the Marcus who graduated at the top of his class at the Doright Obedience School. It was a wrong number via email.  I don't know how she confused you with an obedient dog.  Fan mail, my eye!

CAMERON:  Jan did a new search and found the flashing could be caused by a dirty doohicky in the monitor or the setup button could have gone loopy.  Yeah, loopy, that's the problem.  We definitely need a new monitor but as Jan would say, they don't grow on trees. Not local trees, anyway.

The Pet Parade is hosted by Rascal and Roscoe.  It is co-hosted by Bionic Basil, Barking From the Bayou, Love is being owned by a husky, and us (Jan's Funny Farm).

Who is this week's Featured Favorite?  Check it out at Rascal & Rocco's. 

There are two parts to the blog hop - your blog url and social media.


  1. Computer problems are a pain. We are having some ourselves. What should take 2 minutes takes 15 minutes are computer is so slow. Ugh.

  2. My Mom had to build a new computer as her's starting beeping and flashing then going to sleep all the time. The new one is cool. She built it out of an old piece of science equipment.

  15. Your computer is psychotic. It seems to take great joy in torturing Jan and causes havoc at the Funny Farm. Good luck in 2015! ♥
