Good Evening

How is this for a bright and sunny photo taking in the afternoon. It was really quite warm outside, a real early Spring Day. The sun was so inviting, but I was at home. I had a visitor, my cleaning lady Lucia was here as she offered to help me sort my computer bits and pieces as she knew someone that could use them for repairs on various computers. And here she is at work.

I asked her if she would mind me using a photo on the computer and she had no problem, so now you see this genius lady. She knew every cable use and every part. She is a genius with such gadgets and she helped me clear my four bags of bits and pieces and also cleared out a cupboard. Now for the first time I have breathing space. I have never seen so many cables and plugs, not to mention hundreds of CD Rom, just with nothing on them or ancient programmes that no-one would use today.

And look what we found. An old Olympus camera in perfect condition. Not only the camera but the charger and spare memory cards. The camera had not been touched for at least 10 years and it is now charging. As soon as I attached it to the electricity it seemed to breathe a sigh of relief as if to say “at last”. It is a very small camera and I hope that it will work. Obviously not the most modern, but it looks quite good.

I also busied myself this morning with continuing to process our tax documents. I now have it all organised but must wait until we have our estate meeting to permit the invoice for various charges so that I can include it and then I can forget the whole thing for a year – just pay the bills.

And that was my exciting day.

  1. It is nice to meet Lucia in person. She certainly seems to know what she is doing with those cables. I will be interested to hear how the camera works. It’s always handy to have a spare, especially if it is small enough to go in your pocket.

  2. Good Day!
    ‘Old’ modern technology is amusing. It is amusing that it still seems so new, even while outdated. I work with young people who do not understand how a rotary telephone or a typewriter works.

  3. You set a standard for the rest of us … time for me to get busy and unload those drawers of cables and figure out which is which. I wonder if there is a market for the old cables? Somewhere there must be people searching for the exact cable I want to discard because I cannot figure out where it goes… take care and have a great day .. SLP …
