Well I did it. Went to Nakuru yesterday and bought a new battery for my laptop. Was actually easy to find one. Found it at the very first place I stopped at. (For the sake of transparency I stopped at a couple of other places first. Had to park the motorcycle somewhere safe and checked the p.o. box while I was there.) Paid 4,500 KES, which is about $49 U.S. dollars. So this morning, after charging it last night while we used our stored solar energy, I'm running a $50 test. Will it last? So far so good.
This test almost didn't happen. Andrew, our 16 year old son, decided to crank the generator and introduce his sisters to Monty Python and the Holy Grail. It is hard to leave this:
For my new laptop battery. At least I am pumping some tunes into my head at the moment.
Much has happened this past week;
- Kate raised money to buy a piano!
- Kate and I went to Nairobi and window shopped pianos. (Plus I got to eat at one of my favorite restaurants.)
- The kids watched a Barbie movie, and Monty Python.
More happened, but it's hard to guage a reader's tolerance level for bullet points.
Almost Christmas. Not to worry my bah humbug post will arrive before then, and Kate's mushy gushy Christmas is awesome post sometime after mine.
Today we are off to Matthew and Michele's place for The Muppets Christmas Carol.
I'm thinking I need to enjoy this sunny morning with a ride on the motorcycle to town. See you later.
