…and they want their stuff back! Oh, the clunkyness of it all.
This photo is easily worth one thousand words, but instead: my favorite screen saver: On Mighty Toaster Wings!

Great photos and, yes, Risa, great (or maybe not so great) memories. Also a perfect title.
Fun story and photos Risa!
And thanx for the reminder of those Flying Toasters. What was up with that anyway?
Dana, I have no idea! But it was pretty funny. And a very catchy tune!
Your Flying Toaster screen saver is a hoot. Reminds me of our son’s obsession with Pong. We’ve come a long way baby!
That’s for sure, Laurie!
Perfect image, Risa. What work did you do?
Betsy, at the time I was working in the intensive care nursery at UCSF. I ran a parent support group for parents of preemies and critically ill newborns. I remember signing up for a keyboarding program on that computer because I never learned to touch type!! I was not very good at it for years. With all the writing I do (and did), I finally realized I was typing without looking!
Very funny, Risa! And I love that photo of you in front of that clunky computer. I remember lots of crazy screen savers, but I missed out on those flying toasters, thank goodness!
We used to sing along with that silly song! Glad you enjoyed the picture!
The computer and the phone are both real blasts from the past. And you are smiling–great picture. Now our smartphones have just about replaced all that hardware (although a real PC can’t be beat for word processing). Cheers.
