Pigging and picking

Hello again. My computer went to visit a tech overnight; it got defragged, a BIG memory boost, and a software upgrade. In the meantime, my digital camera has disappeared. I had it with me when I went to town yesterday, and I don't have it now. I don't know if someone snatched it out of the side pocket of my purse, it fell out somewhere, or I've misplaced it around here. I am suspecting the first ugly option, since I've looked everywhere, including where it could have fallen out, with no luck. The post below was conceived before computer and camera went on hiatus, and may be the last for awhile....

When I turn the breeding group+wether out in the mornings, this is a common sight: Dinah, bellied up to the hay bar, while everyone else walks around checking out the freshest fallen leaves. Dinah has always been my "Miss Piggy," but produces nice lambs and a BIG, lustrous white fleece that is a joy to spin, so I guess she makes good use of the groceries!

One morning Rick stayed home to clean out gutters before the rains return (tomorrow). When he came in to change and head to the clinic, Brian was getting ready for violin practice. Brian jumped at the chance to show Daddy how well he's playing his bluegrass tunes. Rick couldn't resist; he grabbed his guitar to play along. (Don't worry; they're both clothed this time. In fact, Brian looks quite the part in his overalls and straw hat!)They are going to play Cripple Creek together at a youth group fundraiser this Sunday; I think the crowd is in for a treat!

That's it for now at from . . .

So sorry to hear about your camera...I hope you find it soon! Dinah's a lovely-looking girl!

Well, if the camera is gone (and I know how crummy that feels :-( ), maybe it means it's time for you to get a new one :-) And I hope you'll at least post, even without photos - I would miss you - and have been missing you this week already.

It must be the season for computer shenanenigans as mine, too, has been acting up. Ralph promises a new one next year as this one is just too ancient. (Hmm...does that mean I'm up for replacement as well??? LOL!)
All our leaves are gone from winds now, leaving it very bleak around here.
Too bad you don't have sound with your blog - the music the Dynamic Duo are making would be wonderful to hear!

You know, you could get a new camera with a video option and then we could all hear the music AND not have to miss out on blog posts with pictures :-D.

So here's the deal; I bought another Fujifilm digital camera off eBay after I dropped the one I just lost. It has lots more features, including video, but I haven't figured out how to use it or even if it actually works. The camera I dropped started working again, so I stopped trying to figure out the eBay one, and whether or not I was sold a lemon. Now it looks like my hand is forced; the batteries are charging. But I don't know when I will find the time to try to figure out the new camera, much less how to save video onto my computer to load into the blog. In other words, don't hold your breath!

Oh no! Don't stop posting! Really enjoy your posts. Just wouldn't be the same around the blogs.
