Peppercorn the dog has been waking up early this week. I am hopeful that trend stops sooner than later. Maybe Peppercorn the dog was displeased that we cleaned up the garage. This week happened to be large item pickup week for our trash service. That occasion sparked some clean up in the garage. It turns out that my first computer was sitting in the garage on a shelf. In the original box with all the cables and instructions was a very used Commodore VIC-20. My first instinct was to check eBay to see how much it was worth. It was not worth very much. Apparently, people are not very nostalgic about the Commodore VIC-20.
