CHECKERS, OUR VERY MUCH MOST BEST BIGGEST GIRL
Kelly has had a very busy week in Spencerport NY helping her Mother deal with the failing health of her Father. She has extended her stay a few days in order to assist further until additional help can be brought into the home. I do not think I have ever seen a human being who has had to endure so much bad health for so long.
"D'YA MIND, I'M TRYING TO TAKE A BATH!!!! (Blue Jay)
Can't remember who it was but somebody a few days ago had a question about types of photo files that should be used with photo programs, etc. This is a technical area I know next to nothing about. I am a bit familiar with the common JPEG file format though because I think that is the popular one most people use. The inquiry was about a TIF file. A photography friend of mine in Elfrida Arizona just happened to do a post about all that last week. Ray is a technical guy who understands the inner workings of computer things & at the Photo Group I attended there this past winter he was quite adamant about 'saving your original photos.....untouched!!!!' Check out RAY'S BLOG. The TIF info is about two thirds of the way down.
MOURNING DOVE......THEY KEEP THE FALLEN SEEDS ON THE GROUND PICKED UP
Been waiting for some warmer temps to take the bike for a run. Just a little on the cool side yet & I'm not into 'cold riding' on a motorcycle anymore. Been there, done that. No more of that nonsense thank you very much!!
CARDINALS LIKE THE NEARBY CEDAR TREES
Our back yard has been looking a little tired the past couple of years. Re-did one area last summer & today I started pulling apart another section. Some old fencing came down, a lot of rocks were moved & the power washer took care of a lot of moss on paving stones, Quite a mess out there right now but I enjoy making gardening & landscaping changes so I will be back at it in the morning again.
WORK BEGINS ON REVAMPING THE BACK YARD
Just noticed a question in our shout box. No, Donna we do not have any bears here in this part of southwestern Ontario aside from a very rare occasion when one might wander down from further north. Not likely to end up where we are though. Too much open farm land around & too many people moving about in the area.
MOMMA GOOSE IS ALL BUT INVISIBLE ON HER NEST THIS MORNING
I must really get started on the motorhome clean up soon as well. Still a lot of road grime on it from our trip home nearly a month ago. I never wash it while we are traveling because it just doesn't make a whole lot of sense to do that when we are up & down gravely back roads & across dusty desert floors most of the time. We don't hang out in RV Parks so don't have to worry about keeping up appearances with the neighbors all precisely lined up in their very picture perfect shiny rig rows.
WE HAVE TOO MANY GRACKLES AND THEY ARE THE BULLIES IN THE BIRDYARD
GROANER'S CORNER:(( When Mr.. Wilkins answered the door late in the evening one day after he'd lost his wife scuba diving, he was greeted by two grim-faced policemen. "We're sorry to call on you at this hour, Mr. Wilkens, but we have some information about your wife."
"Well...tell me!" he demanded.
The policeman said, "We have some bad news, some pretty good news, and some really great news. Which do you want to hear first?"
Fearing the worse, Mr. Wilkins said, "Give me the bad news first."
So the policeman said, "I'm sorry to tell you sir, but we found your wife's body this morning in San Francisco Bay."
"OH MY GOD!," said Mr. Wilkens, overcome by emotion. Then, remembering what the policeman had said, he asked, "What's the good news?"
"Well," said the policeman, "When we pulled her up she had two five-pound lobsters and a dozen good size Dungeoness crabs on her."
"Huh?" he said, not understanding. "So, what's the great news?"
The policeman smiled, licked his chops, and said, "We're going to pull her up again tomorrow morning."
