WE HAVE A LOT OF CURIOUS LITTLE CRITTERS IN OUR FRONT YARD
Another day of cold, cloudy & yuk. Other than slipping down to Mitchell to visit my Uncle Harry the day was pretty much another lost cause. He’s still doing fine & always looks forward to seeing the Pheebs. Plowed our way through some heavy wind gusts & snow showers along the way.
It was with interest I read Sue’s thoughts on blogging at THE MOHO AND OTHER TRAVELING TALES this morning. Blogging has become an important part of my every day life so I am always interested in hearing or reading what others have to say about the subject. I thought Sue summed it up very well & I am in agreement with & understand her thoughts.
A MUSKRAT…BUT NOT IN OUR FRONT YARD POND
And, while on the topic of Blogs, I do have a few thoughts. Well, quite a few actually but I will just keep it down to a few today. I have always had an addictive personality. Seems when I like to do something a lot I have a tendency to go overboard with it & do it too much. Tonight’s post is number 1,507 & that is not counting the posts I wrote before adding Sitemeter to my Blog site. With the exception of a few days here & there I have blogged on a daily basis now for about 4 & a half years. Do I have myself caught up in yet another daily addiction?? Can writing & reading blogs become addictive?? From my own perspective I would have to answer both those questions with a resounding ‘yes’.
FORGOT TO BRING THE BIRDFEEDERS IN LAST NIGHT & SURE ENOUGH, 2 OUT 3 WERE ON THE GROUND THIS MORNING…GEE, I WONDER HOW THAT HAPPENED
Is there a cure for this addiction? Maybe. I think it is time for me to once again re-post my 12 Steps To Blogging Recovery based on AA’s own 12 step recovery plan which in fact I learned first hand many years ago………………….
Step One: "We admitted we were powerless over Blogging - that our free time has become unmanageable."
Step Two: "Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to a simpler time before computers."
Step Three: "Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of our Spouses as we understand them."
Step Four: "Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of our Blogger thoughts & Blog Archives."
Step Five: "Admitted to our Spouses, to ourselves, & to another Blogger person the exact nature of our blogging woes."
Step Six: "Were entirely ready to have our Spouse remove all nasty posts from our Blogs."
Step Seven: "Humbly asked Her/Him to remove our shortcomings, our spell checkers, & our publish buttons"
Step Eight: "Made a list of all fellow Bloggers we had commented to, and became willing to make amends to them all."
Step Nine: "Made direct amends to such Bloggers wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them, their Blogs, or their Blog Followers ."
Step Ten: "Continued to take personal written inventory and when we were wrong promptly didn't blog about it."
Step Eleven: "Sought through humbleness and fear to improve our conscious contact with our Spouse as we understood Her/Him, begging only for knowledge of Her/His will for us and maybe our keyboards back to blog about it."
Step Twelve: "Having had a Blogger's awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to all fellow Bloggers, and to practice these principles in all our restructured Blogging affairs." 10-4!!
Hi, my names AL & I am a Blogger:((
IT WAS A YEAR AGO I REPAINTED OUR UTILITY TRAILER
Reader Pam asks if I was once a professional photographer & if my bird photos are taken at our place here in Canada. It’s a No/Yes answer. No, never was a professional photographer. Most ‘true professional photographers’ (not the one’s that just call themselves that) photos are far better than mine. My photos are OK for my blog but they wouldn’t stand up in comparison to the professional folks. Their photos are tack sharp with far more attention paid to the technical side of things. A pros photos are better because they have to be better. It’s their living & for sure those guys have a lot more patience at setting up a shot than I do. I never plan a photo because I am an opportunity kind of shooter. If the opportunity pops up for a photo, I take it & move on. And yes, about 95% of all the bird pics you are seeing in my blog these days are taken right here in our own front yard. Most of them right through our sunroom window while I’m at the computer pecking away at another post:))
HEY, WHO’S DA IMPOSTER!!
GROANER’S CORNER:(( John was furious when his steak arrived too rare.
"Waiter," he shouted, "Didn't you hear me say 'well done'?"
"I can't thank you enough, sir," replied the waiter. "I hardly ever get a compliment."
