>Computer Shutdown Day Report
>Today was the day I accepted the challenge to shut down my computer for 24 hours. Actually I shut it off just before midnight last night.
My intention is to take a photo every hour to show what I was doing *instead* of sitting at the computer.
Ready? Let’s go.
|Here we are just before 7 am, time to wake up the new puppy, Hootie, and take her out to pee.|
|I wandered down to one of my favorite photo spots, about 100 yards from my front door to get a shot of the power lines.
Someday I want to get the sun rising in the center. Don’t know if it will happen but it might, around the Winter Solstice.
|Here’s another shot before the sun came up.
It’s the Magical Windmill.
Yeah, it’s cold in my PJ’s.
|Gipsy, the horse is ready for some food.
Not just yet, I need to take some more photos.
|First it’s time for my Exercises.
I love my Total Gym. Too bad I don’t use it very often.
Looks like I gave birth to a Beach Ball. Judging from the color, I’d say it’s a boy.
|It’s time to throw some Hay to the horses.
Spudder the Feral Cat is going to help.
|It’s a Horsey Merry-go-round. Here’s how it works:
The horse on the right is afraid of the one in the center, the one in the center is afraid of the one on the left. The Pinto gets along with everybody but the one on the left is afraid of the one on the right.
Round and round they go.
Pretty funny sometimes.
|Spudder the Feral Cat gets fed too.|
|The Horses ate the pigtail wiring harness on the horse trailer.
I have to put on the new one that Bud The Neighbor gave us.
It was a little more complicated than I thought it was going to be.
|Time to fill up the water trough. We buy ‘Feeder Fish’ to put in the water so they will eat the mosquito larvae.
PETA would be proud.
|Let’s go feed the dogs.
Hootie is playing with Mama Cass.
|Mrs. Geezer is twisting the steering wheel cover. It drives me nuts.
She is driving me to our favorite store. Can you guess what it is?
|Here’s a hint.|
|Remember when you were a kid and you stuck your arm out the window and made it go up and down like an airplane wing?
Guess what… You can still do it when you’re old.
|Bud the neighbor woke me up from my Power Nap to help him move some junk.
I’m happy to help him because he helps me All The Time.
Good Neighbors are nice to have.
|Here’s Bud’s old Jeep.
Some Assembly Required.
All the parts are around here somewhere.
|Mrs. Geezer is getting my horse ready to go on The Big Ride tomorrow.
Can you tell the horse is trotting?
A trot is a 2-beat gait using opposite corner feet.
Are we clear on that?
|Now we gotta feed them again.|
|Hey look, it’s that Ring-Necked Pheasant.
I like having him around. It makes me smile when I hear him out in the field.
|This doesn’t make me smile.
It’s a Friggin’ Gopher hole. (Thomomys idahoensis)
Sometimes they outsmart me but I trapped a big one. Here’s the photo.
|The window came off the track so I had to fix it before I sat down to watch a movie.
|Here’s tonight’s entertainment.
It’s The Longest Day. I remember seeing this in 1962.
Well that was my Day Without a Computer.
How are Things in Your Town?
