RDP Wednesday: Breakfast

I have breakfast with a few thousand people daily, although I do not see them, but they see me through the computer. Breakfast would not be the same without WordPress at the side. Of course my main interest is preparing something to eat to begin the day: bread, butter and jam is enough to cover my needs and a cup of tea to wash it down (without milk or sugar). I also have my Vitamin D drops to take in the last drops of tea. I take my tablet for my diabetes before I begin to eat. Note the camera is on the table ready for a photo from the outside world and my iPad.

And of course the computer is on the table. That is when I write my Good Morning greetings to the WordPress followers that might or might be waiting for it. I took this picture on 14th May 2020, so things do not change. Only on Tuesday I take the day off as my routine is not the same. The cleaning lady is here and I have other things to do.

RDP Wednesday: Contest

In the pre Covid days our town had an Autumm fair every year and there were many contests. One was organised for the local pigs to find the fastest pig. There were many people wanting to see the winner and to cheer them on. Unfortunately I could not get to the front so had to take my photos from the TV screeen showing the pigs as they entered the home stretch. They were so fast it was difficuilt to take a good photo. It was amazing how active they were carrying so much bacon on their bodies. Since two years the Autumn fair has been cancelled but we are all hoping that the pigs will be running again this year.

RDP Wednesday: Laughter

At the moment we are having voting for our local politicians and of course they all have posters showing their laughing faces. I saw this one today on the way into town (name and party obliterated by me). He is really having a good laugh. I hope that our bear next to his photo does not bring the axe down on him.

RDP Wednesday: Scrupulous

I suppose I have to be a bit scrupulous to get action photos like this. I sit at the table in the kitchen facing the large window with a view out on the garden of the bird house with the food. I set my camera on zoom. The birds have to hover until they have an eating space. I sit with my camera ready and as soon as I notice one wants to fly off to the food I shoot away with the camera, one photo after the other. I never know what I am getting until I upload them on the computer. I am not a professional photographer so it is all more luck than judgement. If Sir David Attenborough happens to look on my Woodpress page I might become famous and become Bird Photographer of the Year.

RDP Wednesday; Awakening

A beautiful sunny afternoon, at last a chance to sit outside on the porch and enjoy the sun’s rays in a comfortable chair. However, it seems my shoice of chair, in the best place, belonged to somoneone else. I now had to decide. Should I move the neighbour’s cat to another place or take the other chair which was in the corner away from the benefits of the sun. I had three cats myself and my last cat went to the enternal corn chambers to hunt mice a couple of years ago, so this was not a rare occurance. I suppose what goes around comes around and I was reminded of my Tabby and how she would always take my chair. However, I moved the chair which lead to moving the cat. No problem, he found another comfortable place, in my garden of course.

RDP Wednesday: Insect

I have an insect hotel in the garden, actually two. Sometimes the rooms are occupied and I do not even know by who. They do not ask if there is a room free, that just move in. In this case it seems the fire bugs were on the search for comfortable living quarters. There were still some rooms free, but it seems this must have been the penthouse suite as they were all aiming for it.

RDP Wednesday: Titanic

No, the Titanic did not sink due to an ice berg. The brave seamen left a small port in a river somewhere in Switzerland in their submarine and journeyed to the ocean. Unfortunately they took the wrong turn, they had never seen an ocean before, their country only having rivers and streams. And so they sunk the Titanic. They returned safely to their harbour, but decided not to tell anyone what had happened. No-one would have believed them in any case.
