So here I am with my brother and sister. The theme didn't say it had to be a recent photo.

I did have a floor up picture of my file cabinet, but I accidentally deleted it, and it is pretty ugly anyway.

July--This must have been late July, as we shoveled snow from the bridge near Shadow Lake last July 4th..

Not too much farther along I happened upon this...
...which left me wondering if somewhere along the way the result might end up being something like this.
visit her you can see who else is playing.

It's a bird.
It's a plane.
...a maple seed that remained stuck to the windshield all the way home.

I took 228 photos this weekend.
Watch this space.
I have to go look at them myself first.
Okay, I'm back. I absolutely had to throw away 12 that made my eyes cross, and one belonged in a different file. Two are videos I will figure out how to view eventually and post sometime when I have figured that out, too. You don't get all 215 because not all of them are all that good anyway, and some I will save for special circumstances. You just get to see some of what we saw.
There was a lot of this...
We saw these...
...and we found the woodpecker buffet.
And at the end of the day...
When we were back from our hike on the Silver Falls loop trail, people asked us how long a hike it is in time. After telling how long it took us, I pointed out that we are slow hikers. Hubby said, "She stops a lot to take pictures."

Okay, so it's one of those cheap ones that sometimes it's cheaper to get a new printer than to buy ink for it, but hey--sometimes that's where you gotta go. In fact, I just a couple of weeks ago invested my nest-egg in ink cartridges, as it's been telling me for three months that the ink supply is low. The first actual evidence that that was true was some websites that I printed out that were, to say the least, funny streaky nowhere near true colors.
But it hasn't gone completely blank yet, so the new cartridges are still in the bag with the receipt, and I should have no problem returning them.
So I am going to have to go either get another cheap printer, or actually cough up the dough for a good one that will last a while (if that's even remotely possible for one to last a while for me) and be considerably more environmentally friendly as I wouldn't have so many old cheap ones to discard.
So in today's e-mail is a coupon for my favorite office supply store for $10 on a $50 purchase (I used the last one that came on the ink cartridges!!) Excellent! I'll just print that off and have it handy when I go to town.
What is wrong with that statement?
I'll just print it off...

I've been having some technical difficulties, so if I don't comment on your Odd Shot, know that I was probably there to visit and got frozen out of the comments. I think I've got it fixed, but I'm way behind, so forgive me.
These trees seem like they ought to be twins, but

Every attempt at commenting was closing down my browser. I had to open again, and many times tried rebooting. It took me most of Sunday to get it straightened out. Spyware! Curses!
Needless to say, I did only a bit of visiting and very little commenting on Sunday afternoon.
I may get back to everyone. Or I may not. Forgive me.
One more factoid I heard regarding this huge planting of hops in the valley is that the investment will have been recouped by the third year. (Think many acres and acres of land, hundreds of poles per acre for all of it that was previously in some other crop, wire, string, plants, equipment much of which is specialized, and the labor to install it all.)
