Sunday Diversions

Well it hardly seems that 2 weeks ago the big Bloggerpalooza was over. Everyone had said their good-byes and headed home. Jay and I where close to Richmond late in the afternoon Sunday the 16 March. When I finally took off from VA on Tuesday 3-18 the ice and snow that hit that Sunday night wasn't finished yet by Tuesday morn. My Flight was 2 hours late taking off which put me into my connector airport late, so I missed my flight to Omaha. But not to worry, I was re-scheduled on a plane 2.5 hours later. Instead of arriving home at 12:30 I got in at 4:30. Everyone along the way was very nice and helpful.              Well over these past 2 weeks I've settled back into my old work routine. But I haven't forgot all the many friends I've made the few days in Lewes,DE. I have to say Ron sure knows how to pick them, the days I mean, the weather was almost perfect that weekend, just like he said. Today here on the great plains we had perfect weather, it got up to 77F and a good time to be outdoors. So what did I do? This morning I went to an auction indoors, a lot of high end furniture. Nothing I needed or wanted to spend any money on. So why my subject title Sunday Diversion? I wasn't going to stay but I saw this bit of distraction standing around, needless to say I wasn't in any hurry to leave. Good thing I carry my camera more, got a few shots of my (prey) subject.

Sunday Post II

I'm Still not sure what I'm doing wrong and far as trying to post a 2nd or subsequent picture post. I don't know if it's me or my computer. But for another photo I'll insert a break and select pic, but come up blank. So I'll just do another post until I find what I'm doing wrong. Any way the real question I did have was. I found this on the back of a local SUV, and wasn't sure what to make of it. Anyone have thoughts? My qustions are, What am I doing wrong in trying to insert more than 2 photos in one post? And what does anyone make of this rainbow peace sign sticker? The problem with inserting photos is a simple answer, I just bet it is!

Sunday Selfie

Who is this handsome devil?
Well I thought it was my turn to do a Sunday selfie. I took a quick candid photo after just stepping out of the shower. So I'd all clean and fresh, so here is my first selfie post.

Friends, that's what is nice to have! Or as in the case here blogger friends. It's hard to believe that just one week ago the fun was begining last Saturday night. There sure was no shortage of pictures taken, so many that I lost track. I'm still going through all of mine on my camera, copying them on the computer, nameing them, cropping and re-sizing files to fit etc. Any way back to making friends, The first person I met on my adventure this past week. Was Jay in VA after landing in Richmond. Then Sluggy at the E. lodge Thursday, and the thrill of meeting the the chief instigator of Bloggerpalooza II Ron, from Retired in Delaware. The past couple of days seems to be just a blur, and a happy one at that! Friday I ran into Anne Marie as I was getting off the elevator at the inn. I don't know what she thought of me. I saw this woman with bright red hair. First words out of my mouth, hey! I know you! And I intro myself; I'm Randy from Nebraska, Every meeting I felt was an instant connection. Which proves that saying, There are no strangers, only friends you haven't met yet. As Dr. Spo is liken to say I laughed, I cried, it was better than cats. lol.  And to the other friends I made there in Delaware here's hoping for a bloggerpalooza III. where it's going to be I think is still up in the air. Now if you'll excuse me I have a few hundred photos to pour though.                                             Randy in NEB.

It's about Time.

Yes it is about time, for a lot of things. I was talking to Ron at Retired in Delaware. Mostly about the up coming event known as Bloggerpalooza. And how much fun was had last year and with a few new people coming including yours truely. It should be a real hoot and a half. But it was also mentioned to me that it's been awhile since I created a post on my blog. So it's too about time also for me to do that. But with overtime at work and the cold weather on the wind swept plains, there never seemed a good time to do so. And I didn't think there was anything new and exciting to say. A couple of weeks ago one of my tires on the little run-about was losing air all the time, and but the time I took it to our Goodyear shop thay said the tire was shot. Having to order a new over the weekend and run around on the donut spare.

 I've also been busy watching my friend Tom and his wife Marsha cat while their on vacation in Puerto Vallarta. The funny thing is they left around the same time Dr. Spo returned home from his trip there. But I'm sure my friends are staying in a condo further north up the beach in PV. I've always wanted to check out Key West myself. I even had a chanch to about 25 years ago, saddens me that I didn't. I'm thinking though that Lewes,DE and Bloggerpalooza will be the next best thing. Leaving you with one last final thought. Randy.
