Spring is a time of renewal so they say, whoever "they" are. I took a walk today instead of a ski as there is a not too icy place to go. Of course we will get more snow and cold and I will get out and ski again, but today it was a walk.
A lot of friends and acquaintances are traveling about now with most going someplace warmer. Costa Rica seems to be a favorite this year. Apparently our president hasn't insulted Costa Ricans yet so no one has to spend their time apologizing and explaining their way through the day other than general questions like "why" and "how" of course, but not specifically having to apologize to specific Costa Ricans.
Another guy I know, a recent immigrant to the county, is headed in another direction. To the Hebrides and the Faeroe Islands and vicinity. I doubt he is going for the weather. I hope he gets some nice days.
Others are headed down to Arizona, Florida, and other places to visit snowbird friends before everyone comes back up this way to evade the heat of the southern U.S.
The computer I have been blogging on is on its last legs and this may be the final post from it. It is eleven (maybe twelve) years old and aging, wearing out, slowing down, and becoming obsolete. I won't draw the obvious parallel to its owner. I have maintained, updated, upgraded, added memory, deleted files, and done my best to keep it moving, but it is about time for an assisted demise. I have already ordered another and will transfer the stuff on this one to it, hopefully, and be up and running again soon. Last weeks photos had to be loaded into the Cooker's computer and emailed to this one instead of the direct SD card reader which has now failed in addition to some other things. I shouldn't have to reconstruct too much, but it is always a chore to do so if I must.
'Tis a kinder thing I do to Old Vista. It has served me well. If I am not back in a week or so, don't worry. I will likely be pulling out my remaining hair and recalling words I haven't needed for quite some time, but I shall return.
