Sometimes photos do not arrive as you want them too, on the other hand a fence is also interesting, even if you actually wanted to take a photo of what was behind the fence.

Daily Prompt: Welcome to the computer zoo

Windows Update

I suppose it is my own fault, I have too many animals in my zoo. Most of the time they are sleeping. They breathe when you connect them to the electricity. I am looking at the window at the moment and what do I see. the animal is awakening, being fed with a new food called Windows 10 creator, because it is Fall, although I was sure it is now winter. It had this food once before. It digested it and it kept it inside its entrails, I did have a quick look to see if it was full of beneficial vitamins, we wll want our computers to thrive, grow and go places, perhaps even multiply.  I decided that creator was not my thing and so I kept it in a cage, never unleashed.

Today they are doing it again. It has given birth to part 2, another extension to the zoo. I can now have 3d animals in my world. Do not want them and have enough with the 3d animals in my real world. I can even animate them. There are many animals, known as politicians, which had better not been animated, so let sleeping animals lie, cannot use them. I have new emojis, emojis. Do I have room for them, what do they eat, and are they those silly things that are used for decorations. I have a smiley, who needs more. Oh, I have just seen you only get them with a US keyboard. We Brits again go home empty keyboarded, but who cares. My computer is now breathing quite regularly, taking deep breaths. I think it has an asthma attack, only another 10% to go, on the second installation.

I can now pin my new animal contacts to the task bar. It is a small task bar, I hope they have room. My animals will talk to me through Skype. Unfortunately I am not a follower of Skype. There was a time when Skype had its own cage, but I realised there were too many unknown animals prowling around, the call of the wild. I cast them out into the wilderness.

I can pin sites I use frequently: been there and done that without this new update in my zoo. I can now talk instead of type. I talk enough when I am not on the computer. They are all glad when I am quiet. Another animal I will not be needing. I can fix a letter without starting over – do what? Oh, I need a digital pen, never had one and never wanted one.

It is now closing time at the Winows zoo, I have seen all I want to see. I have got a delivery of many new animals, but I will not be taking them for walks. They will stay in their cages and sleep. In the meanwhile there is a new start. If I no longer appear today, you know the animals have eaten me.

Daily Prompt: Welcome to the computer zoo

Good Morning

Snow in the garden

Look what is happening in my little part of the world. Yes, it began to snow about an hour ago. The ground is cold so now it will probably remain with us today. How glad I am that I do not have to go anywhere in particular. We are stocked up with enough food until tomorrow, so we will not starve. Even my birds have enough to eat. We dragged another 5 Kg bag of food home for them yesterday. Am I glad that I no longer have to go to a workplace.

Rosemary in snow

My rosemary is now completely covered in the white stuff.

Yesterday I eventually did it. I ordered my new iPhone X. The delivery date is about 2 weeks, although the guy at the store said they no longer have such long waiting times. Why does a golden oldie do such weird stuff? Little things please little minds and I love learning all this modern stuff. Now I just have to look at my new phone to switch it on it seems. Mr. Swiss muttered something about an iTunes backup to prepare for the installation of my new phone, so I will gladly let him do the necessary. He left me on my own with the guy in the store and took a walkabout around the mall and I began to get confused. I was being asked all sorts of questions about our phone supplier, whether we have this or that. I had to call Mr. Swiss to help me out. There are some things that are just a little above my head and all in Swiss German. Of course I understand the language, but sometimes it gets a little complicated.

The next big arrival on my list will be my wheelchair which means a lot to me. I can walk, although need support with my cane. Since my two falls outside I have become very uncertain. My left leg decides to separate itself from my body without telling me about it first and suddenly you are down without a possibility of standing up again independently. Mr. Swiss is nervous about letting me into the garden, and to be quite honest so am I. I am now suffering from cabin fever. At home there are no large spaces to get lost in, but outside it is a different problem. Going to the supermarket gets me out of the house and I have a trolley to hang onto, but taking walks with my camera no longer comes into the question.  A zimmer frame could also be a solution, but not for me. I want my independence and I do not want to have to rely on others. Taking photos with a zimmer frame for support is not ideal for me, so I go the whole hog. I can now change lens in comfort without searching for a bench and I can also take my extra lens with me.

It seems Mr. Trump (President – no I do not think so, you have to deserve that title) has put his big foot in it again with a Tweet, and is now telling GB to solve its problems. There is a pending invitation for this idiot to visit Britain, but nothing has been arranged up to now.

And now to my little world. I will be pottering around, might clean a few windows for the lack of something more intelligent to do. I leave you with a photo taken by me from the car, of our local mountain Weissenstein, this time in the snow.
