Himself: Helped friend with communication problems with her ISP….she cancelled. Sold a bill of goods. No 7/24 support. He did laundry, went to Reunion BBQ where he had a ball with old friends, ate too much, had fun, and came home and made a slide show.
Herself: …and the quilt blog too: Worked on photos while he was gone, went to BBQ, ate lumpia and wonderful things plus two desserts, came home and made a slide show after he made his slide show. Downloaded all the photos from the reunion, and will make a photo site from them today. Today: Paper, CBS Sunday Morning, blog, photos, shower, swapmeet where G is looking for watch bands, make YouTube slideshow, lunch and dinner in there somewhere, meeting early today.
My Babylonian Captivity: Do stop in and read Tugster's newest blog. For Tugster was captured in Iran when Iraq invaded, and this is the story of that time. His mother died suddenly, and there will be a hiatus in the writing.
Gratitude: The Geezer.
The many years between the Geezer’s age and mine seeming leave me almost in a technology bland, older generation. They say that if you don’t learn how to use computers, how to use modern technology, not only will you be left behind but you will die early. I certainly can see my brain shrivel when confronted by programs that even a five year old granddaughter can run. Perhaps the past tense is better: shriveled.
I was gone only moments it seemed, and while I was out of the room, G made a slideshow with music. There he was playing it on the upstairs television.
With great hand holding and soothing commentary such as, “Go take your meds as this stage takes a long time,” ten minutes of pictures were downloaded with a little jazz in the background….soothing music for the not soothing images. We made the images in the wrong size, and the wrong music. So I did it again…..with the wrong music choices again. The pictures were the right size….and I felt triumphant while G felt as if he’d been babysitting.
Later today after I upload the reunion pictures for G’s old secretary, I’ll see if I can master the techniques to create a short YouTube video for this blog. Short being the word.
