Hot and sticky and sticky and hot.

Yeah I'm having internet woes or is it my computer? Is it both? Is it the phone company messing with my middle of the road internet service to get me to upgrade? All I can say is I will change my internet service, taking it elsewhere, just not now. So I'll live with it for now because of the way things are playing out for me personally. Was that vague enough or what?

Anyway all in all things are fine. Arlene and I are at the point of crossing out the days on the calendar until our vacation. Three or so weeks to go.

Hot and sticky and sticky and hot. That's what it's been round these here parts. Fortunately my computer functions for viewing a cd or playing with my photo program function. I went back and started looking at some pictures I took when I first began taking pictures for fun. Between 2005 to 2007 I used three different camera's during that time. Just point and shoot cameras. About three years ago I upgraded to my first big boy camera. It takes lovely pictures, but after a couple of years I got tired of lugging the suitcase that goes with the camera and it's lenses and so on. I still use it now and then but I'm much happier using Arlene's little point and shoot. I don't consider myself a photographer. I'm just a guy who likes to take pictures and am quite pleased that I can take 'em, load them in my computer and see what I've got. What could be easier?

I've made a slideshow with some pictures from 8-10 years ago. A few were probably posted back in the days of Spaces and some probably made it here on Blogger. It was nice to see some of the places that Arlene and I went back then. Some were just me poking about locally during winter, spring and fall. Oddly enough there aren't any from the summer. Here's a couple of examples.

There are times with weather like this, that I yearn for spring and fall. Winter not so much, but it does make you appreciate really good weather. Still we're not having wild fires as out in the western states and we are not in a drought situation so I will count my blessings. Despite the sometimes iffy weather and the ridiculous road system in this old American city, it's my home with so much to offer. If only they could invent teleporters so I could instantly go where I wanted to go instead of driving.
I'm outta here.  


  1. Great photos, especially that snow shot. Greetings!

  2. You ARE a very good photographer whether you say so or not! And I agree with you fully about instantly going where you want. Maybe someday...not in our time. "Beam me up, Scotty"

  3. Paul, I saw on the weather forecast that it was going to be humid there. I know that you and Arlene are excited about your up coming gosh it seems to have come quickly...although I am sure not quick enough for you. I love your pictures, you are good at getting great shots. Please take your camera on your trip..:):) Blessings, xoxo,Susie
