Back In The Saddle Again

Love this signage in a favorite restaurant window. It is a shame it is more rooted in reality more than in humor.

Enjoying the view from my desk as I dance across the keyboard of my new laptop clicking on photos from the last several months. Will enjoy just adding a few in this post but will get a serious post completed after this practice run.  The photo transferring is a bit different than my old PC as it came with Windows 10 and I understand why it was not the busiest girl at the dance now.

 Another worrisome sign of our times at Starbucks restroom. Not only do they need to be reminded but the humor to me in this is they need to post a step by step diagram?

It has been a bit premature in a Spring like weather pattern so the honey bees have been very busy the last few days. That is to change a bit as we are going back to winter in the next few days. Today it is windy and clouds are gathering. 

Helen - need I say any more? 

A view of the cattle ranch across the street with Mt. Lassen on the left and Broke Off mountain to the right. Still covered with snow from the last storm a few weeks back. The rock walls very reminiscent of Ireland were in a number of places built in the mid 1800's by Chinese workers who came to Northern California during the infamous California gold rush days.  Sure makes a pretty view for us on the opposite side of the road not quite a mile away. The cattle are Black Angus. 

Off to do afternoon chores but I will return with ease now. Happy to be back!

I'm so happy to see you back :) Helen looks so peaceful, my gosh, what a little nap in the sun can do for the spirit. :) I'm envious of your spring weather! Alex keeps telling me to upgrade from Windows 8 to 10 and I'm just not there yet. I hate having to get to know new things on the computer!

Welcome back!! You live in a beautiful part of the country and you take some wonderful pictures of it.

I've got a Windows 10 PC, a Windows 7 PC, a (gasp!) Windows Vista PC, and an old Windows XP PC. I'm keeping the XP system because it's got some unique "talents" in running a communication port for a ham radio thing. I still run the Vista because I've been too lazy to get the stuff off the drive I want to keep - That's probably coming soon. I have the Windows 7 because that machine ground to a crawl with Windows 10 and I had to downgrade it. I have to stop and think every time I sit down at a keyboard. You'll, of course, soon catch on but, being something of a dinosaur, there are days I really miss the pre-Windows MS-DOS command line!

Rain Helen loves the deck railing to nap on weather permitting. The really amazing thing is this little cat travels the railing like a pro. Not bad for a totally blind kitty.

My basic philosophy in learning a new system is push buttons until desired effect if achieved. What could possibility go wrong?

Mark thank you I have to agree I am very blessed to live in amazing , stunning True Northern California. We are only about hour and three quarters from the Oregon border.

I got my first computer as a 50th birthday present. I believe MS-DOS was still being used then but Windows was on its way to the future. I don't remember which one was on the original HP desktop I had. The problem with myself and computers is I am a super visual learner if someone suggests I read the users manual my response is I would rather push buttons and see what happens.

Have to admit this view of life has gotten me into hot water a time or two. :-)

Even with the employee wash signs, I've walked out of a restroom where an employee never washed their hands. I push the door open using my elbow. Beautiful photos, by the way.

LOL I love that philosophy! Though in my case my computer would likely start emitting smoke from all sides as I push various buttons lol!

Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a comment, it's always good to meet new friends. I hope your husband gets some good news and is soon in remission. My Mum had similar but not so aggressive. Hugs to you both.
What a beautiful cat Helen is <3
