I saw them in the store and knew I must have a photo. I had to lower my mask as my smartphone does not recognise me with the mask, but no-one was looking. I am not even sure if they are orchids, although I think they are some sort of special orchid.FOTD 14th February 2022: Orchid
“How do you manage to stay so slender Mr. Earthworm?”
“No problem. Everything I eat just passes through my body and does not stay.”
“You mean you do not do any exercises to keep your weight stable.”
“No need to. I just eat as I go. I have my own method of digestion. We worms never suffer from overweight. Our diet of earth can get a little boring sometimes, but we never have weight problems.”
“Sounds very healthy.”
“I suppose it is. We never have problems with our digestion. We just recycle everything.”RDP Monday: Slender
And another day dawns on my little village in Switzerland with a nice colourful sunrise. However, the sun stayed only in the morning and in the afternoon the rains came. It did not bother me so much as I had planned on a day at home.
Every bag, box, container I discover and open is a collection of various unknown computer objects, wires and plugs. The ones that really look important and what are clear to me I keep. Otherwise they are collected in our black bin bags for disposal. The bags are on the porch table. If it were just a few objects it would not bother me, but there are tons of them and all look alike. They are lying in places that no-one has touched for years. I even found computer documentation from Windows 95 which really brought me back to the past. The problem is now to dispose of it all but little by little it is going to the happy computer hunting grounds.
I do not even look at the little compact disks which have been out of use since the last century and we have at least 100 pieces. What is on them is now unknown. The useful appliances I am putting on one side for my No. 2 son to have a look at. I even found a complete set of colour refills for our printer which had not even been opened. I ordered a completely new set a month ago and they are expensive enough. If I had known I could have saved some money.
I now have a collection of cardboard to put in the next collection next week.
In between I still manage to capture a few photos of some visiting birds like this robin.
Some interesting photos also appeared from the days when Mr, Swiss was active as a drummer in a few local jazz groups. I will be sorting them tomorrow.
They were the good old days. I still have his two sets of drums and the electric set for practising in the hobby room in the cellar. I will keep them for a while, although no-one will be playing on them in the near future. They are easy to dispose of as we still have connections to the music world in our town.
And now to move on. Tomorrow I will be visiting Mr. Swiss in his home. Have a good day every one and stay healthy and fit.
