Bravo I uploaded an image from my collection. Where is the piano player, is he hiding from the new block editor which no-one really wanted, but it has been forced onto us. What is a 74 year old lady doing trying to understand the developments of the computer world according to WordPress. We have all become blockheads. Needless to say my first success was return to the classic editor, although it is no longer classic, because you have to integrate it into blocks.
However it now seems to be working. If this farce continues, the one thing that will be missing here will be me. And now to try a html connection. Wish me Luck.
Sorry but this is just plain ridiculous. I wanted to tell you that my legacy here in the blogging world are my photos, which are also on my computer. They have become part of my life. Where I go my camera comes as well. However my owl in the garden now expresses my feelings. I have been swindled into working with this block system.
Being a golden oldie I am not happy about change, but computers everywhere think they are doing us a favour when the bring something new and improved. It is a signal of modern life and I do not want or need change. And so I am looking bewildered through the block jungle and ask what is this all about.
I saw somewhere we can still use the old system and I am now looking for it. Perhaps I might find it, but one thing is certain. I am not prepared to play around for an hour searching for it. WordPress you can stick your block system where it belongs, on the rubbish heap. I do not need your new developments. I stay with my owl and look on.
The sky really did not look so friendly this morning with a dense grey cover. However, when I took the photo it had began to clear a little and now an hour later we have a blue sky and the clouds have disappeared to somewhere else. It is also warming up a little, but thank goodness no longer the intense heat wave that we had.
I was off to the store yesterday and here you see the view of town when I enter from the street that goes around the town. It is one of the main squares where our local government buildings are situated. Below there is the three story parking and you can see the exit on the left of the photo.
I had quite a list for meat which I wanted to put in storage in my freezer. They vacuum it at the store when requested and all I have to do is to freeze it afterwards. I had some fresh veg to get and bread and that was that. Today I do not have to go anywhere as I have enough food until Friday lunchtime. although I will make a trip to the chemist to pick up some medicine for Mr. Swiss. I do not think I have ever been so well organised with my shopping since I have been married. Naturally when the kids were still kids and we were working, things were different, but leading the life of a golden oldie, I have now simplified it considerably, especially as both Mr. Swiss and I are no longer so mobile. My only problem is rain, and as I left the apartment yesterday in my scooter there were raindrops falling on my head. However there were so few that I could count them, and after 30 seconds they stopped, never to be seen again: strange weather sometimes.
I have now got the routine with my scooter. I have two gears, the slow one and the fast one. At the beginning I did not trust myself to used the fast gear as I was still getting used to it. However, I am now in the routine and with the faster gear reach town in about 10 minutes instead of half an hour. The nice thing about driving the scooter is that you can just change the pace you need with the press of a button. I am really enjoying my scooter. And now that I can attach my walker, it makes it even more easy to collect the shopping in the supermarket. I do not have to carry it home, the so-called collectors group pick it up at the store and bring it home.
I still use the electric wheelchair for local trips and gradually I really do not miss my car. I suppose the idea of having a car would be to make journeys to places afar, but I never did that because to be quite honest, I never enjoyed driving, it was just a necessity.
So what else did I see in town yesterday? As I crossed the square before turning to the street where the store is I had a view of our reform church and one of our towers. The tower also contains a small theatre, although at the moment due to corona there are no events. The actual square is decorated with a fountain arrangement and here you see a cyclist on his way. Of course bikes should be used on the roads, but it bothers no-one here when you have enough space,
Town is almost traffic free. There are just cars to deliver hotel guests, which are few at the moment and to deliver goods to the stores. I drove through town myself in my car days, but it is quite a narrow thing, and not really two-way traffic. You just have to be patient when entering or leaving through our entrances, but we never seem to have accidents is town. It is all done with a nod or hand signal, all very friendly. By the way the building on the extreme right is our Army headquarters for office work and where the chief sits. I used to have to go there to pay our military tax. Mr. Swiss was exempt from army duty for health reasons, but you had to pay a special military tax to compensate which was not very cheap and you had to pay it in cash so that it could be entered in his book, although perhaps now, forty years later, things have changed.
And that was yesterdays excitement for me. I left town and scootered on to my village, seeing the local castle from the path I took at the side of the local road railway tracks. I know I am always taking photos of this castle, but it deserves it. It is not every village that has a castle in the back yard, and with a field of sunflowers at the moment, although they will soon be harvested.
Have a good day everyone, take care of your computers, and take care of yourselves. Avoid the dreaded hairy peas floating around in the air and do not forget your masks for the mysterious look.
What could be more serene than a sleeping cat.
All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain!
