Fan Trouble

December 15, 2011


McGee One Leg Up


Molly and McGee at Night

I have had several request wanting to know why I have not posted any photos of Molly and McGee in the last few days. Simple, the computer that runs the camera has been in the repair shop. One of the fans started to sound a police siren so we took the computer in for repair.  Basically, we have not seen Molly and McGee anymore than you have.

I got a call that the computer was fixed, I picked it up and hooked it up, within a few minutes another fan was howling, there are three in the computer. I decided to take a peek in the owl box before taking the computer back to have the other fans replaced so I hooked up the camera long enough to click a couple of photos. More than likely these will be the last photos until next year when we return.

Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Carlos, Donna and Austin

    Carlos, You are an extraordinary person. All the things you do for people out here, most you’ve probably never met, is an unusual gift. I love seeing Molly and McGee again. Wonderful pictures, as usual. I can’t tell you enough how much I really appreciate all the effort, time, money, etc.. you’ve put into making the experience of watching these two so wonderful and joyful esp.. That I have, for too short of a time, been connected to and in community with so many other warm and spirited MODS has been a real blessing. Thank you. Merry Christmas and safe travels in the New Year.

  14. Rosemary Says:

    I can only say what everyone else has… thank you once again Carlos for always giving us such joy and sharing Molly and McGee with us.

    May you and Donna, and your entire family have a super
    Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year, and we will surely
    be looking forward to hearing from you in 2012…

    I wonder if Molly and McGee have put a tree up in the Owl
    Box yet???

    Dear Carlos,

    What a treat! M/M look healthy and content. Visions of sugarplums perhaps, but more likely mousies. Have a wonderful Christmas and a delightful vacation. Can’t think of two people who deserves it more! You are so good to us.

  31. donna smith Says:

    I don’t know what happened to my first post but to repeat, Carlos and Donna we are all thrilled with the photos and miss both of you and Molly and McGee. Have a great Christmas!

  32. yardly Says:

    Carlos I am a computer technitian and on those small computer fans, what happens is a small amount of dirt builds up on the fan blades and that is what causes the siren noise you are hearing. so many people bring there computers in to us with that same problem and we tell them that they can either clean the blades themselves or we can do them. 99% of the time they take their computers home and clean the blades themselves. All you need is a can of pressurized air and some Q-tips. I know some repair shops that will replace the fan motors just to make money when all they needed was to be cleaned.

    • yardly Says:

      I don’t know why this new software keeps thinking technician is spelled technitian. I didn’t catch it until I hit post comment.

  33. Donna Says:

    Carlos, thank you so much for the beautiful pictures. We do miss them and all of you so much! Happy Holidays and a great time on your cruise! We’ll be here when you get back, thank you for keeping in touch.
