Looking ahead...


Hi folks,


Today is a gloomy day here - cold - well, it's 60 and that's pretty chilly for a day time temp for us! Mainly I guess it's the darkness of the sky- the absence of even a little bit of sunshine that's making the day dreary for me. It's not actually as cold as the day looks from my window!

Charles just brought me in a new supply of HoneyBells, but I need to do dishes before I can start on them! Didn't feel like doing them( the dishes) after dinner last night - so there they still sit!! ( Not a new picture! )

Yesterday I discovered my iphoto picture program has gone crazy on me! I can still transport pictures from my camera- or even scans of other things... I can still edit anything (photos or other scans ) but it now will not let me transport pictures from my iphoto program-library!
Oh! But just the new things I put on! The older photos still transport without a problem! It's very strange!

~~~Which means` I can not use any of my new pictures I put there-unless I print them and THEN scan them! A real pain! I have no idea what happened or why - or what to do about it!
I suspect my iphoto program will have to be re-installed . Some parts of it work-but some don't! I wish I knew what to do!!
~~~

And-Marc won't be home for a couple weeks! :< Woe is me!!

...looking ahead...

(got this in an email from a friend in Reno yestersday. I found some of it really funny!)

Dear Junie...hopefully you will get some sunshine real soon:-) I wish it was 60 over here...but right now it's 0 F! lol

Your program sounds like it needs to be reinstalled...it will probably be the only way you can get it working fully again.

Love those 2029 headlines...probably all will come true!! LOL

Hugs xoxo

Hi Pea,

Well, it wasn't a pretty day at all- but not too cold- just dark and gloomy.
Lol- I felt silly complaining about being cold at 60 degrees!... It was just the mood I was in I think.

... aggravated with my picture program-you know! We get used to our little computer toys! :) I think you're probably right in that it will have to be re-installed....but I haven't a clue How to do that! Have to wait for my son-in- law to get home! He is a long distance trucK driver!

Mreddie,

You would find it fun to do! (posting pictures)

And with you being into nature stuff...the flowers and birds-etc- I bet you would have a lot of interesting things to show us!!

Even if you just have a scanner you can post pictures- I was doing that before I got a digital camera. I was lucky -as I have a son-in- law who helped me a lot to figure things out!

Hope you can do it because it really adds a lot of fun!
