SADLY TODAY WE LOST ANOTHER FELLOW RV BLOGGER

A VERY BUSY LITTLE BEE IN A FUSCIA FLOWER THIS AFTERNOON OUTSIDE OUR SUNROOM
 
I headed out first thing this morning with a T-Shirt underneath a warm flannel shirt.  That's how cool it was but within a couple hours I was out of that comfy combination & into a short sleeve summer shirt.  The day just kept getting better from there & it sure was nice being outside in the sunshine again.


Spent my morning puttering with yard work.  Dug up a few plants in the forest & transplanted them to our side yard.  A leisurely walk around the property with our weed whacker took care of most fast growing weeds.   Half a utility trailer load to our recycling area & that was about it.
SUNDAY'S WET FRONT YARD
OUR BACK YARD IS FILLING IN NICELY
It was Kelly who noticed the 'white windows' at the bottom right of our task bar this morning.  I could have a flashing fluorescent Dinosaur sitting on my computer & probably wouldn't notice it.  That 'white window' icon announces the soon to arrive Windows 10 giving computer owners the option of upgrading for free to Microsoft's latest program Windows 10.  Although not actually ready to install just yet it has each user confirm a reservation for when it does actually arrive on one’s computer.  We have confirmed our reservation but when it does arrive we decided we will wait & see what the feed back is from other ordinary folks like ourselves who decide to upgrade to the newer Windows.  It's always easy for the techie types to say there is nothing to it which is of course true for them but I think we'll just wait & see what the general overall Joe has to say regarding Windows 10 is before we take the plunge.  I have a feeling this Win 10 upgrade will make a lot of frustrated Windows 8 users happy.  We luckily have Win 7 which we are quite happy & comfortable with for now.  So we'll see..................

 

I’ve been in the habit lately of writing & publishing my posts earlier in the evening.  This gives me a chance to do a little Kindle reading plus take Pheebs for a drive around Bayfield stopping in a few choice locations to check out a few sunsets over Lake Huron.

It was with sadness today I read in our Shout Box about the untimely passing of another fellow RV Blogger.  Wayne Scott of Turn When The Road Does passed away this morning due to complications from pulmonary fibrosis.  I had never met Wayne although we did comment on each other's blogs occasionally.  Our paths did nearly cross this past winter when Wayne & Rhonda were at the Caliente RV Park in California & we were about 50 miles away in Borrego Springs.  Schedules didn't quite line up & our paths never crossed.  We had read Wayne's last few posts & I don't think we understood how serious his medical situation was.  He was a fellow who presented a positive face to his condition.  Again it just brings it home how fragile this thing called life really is.  This is Wayne's Last Post written Friday May 22nd.  Our condolences to his family.


GROANER’S CORNER:(( My daughter is going to middle school and I thought I should start talking to her about some serious stuff, such as the meaning of life.  Her response: "My meaning of life is to please Mommy."  So then I asked: "What about Daddy?"  She said: "Your meaning of life is to please Mommy, too".

And hey, how about some used car prices from yesteryear.....................

  1. You just stated you're using windows seven now I know you're happy with it but that's old dated
    Is it possible that your windows blog writer does not function because you're using Windows seven
    As new software comes out old becomes old and unusable because of software glitches in compatibility
    my tablets first generation Apple will not run third and fourth and air generation Apple because update software glitches that are put into it
    That's only something to look at
    So I hope you joy your day

  2. Thanks Al, for letting us know about Wayne. I am just stunned right now. I did get to meet both of them last year while they were workcamping at Riverbend Hot Springs here in TorC New Mexico.

  7. Love your little park by the lake, what a great spot to watch the day come to a close. MS must be mad at me as I have not been invited to the Windows 10 party. Like my relationship with Windows 8, I have mixed feelings about another upgrade.

  8. Al, I was so dreading reading your post this morning as I was fearful that it was Wayne. I never met him either, but I corresponded with him via his blog. My condolences to his family. He seemed like a very nice guy and he had a great sense of humor.
