Sorry to report …

All the computers in my house are currently hors de combat from the action of some virus which got into the network and attacked the operating systems. I am down at least until the 3rd of May, when I can order a new computer. Things had been approaching this point for some time … the computer I use is easily ten years old, and when M’Soft decided to disown XP, it became pretty obvious that any extensive repairs were not really cost-effective.

I am currently hustling back and forth to the local Public Library, trying to keep up with the emails that keep piling up. I dump most of them, and when I get back there are ten or twenty more awaiting my attention. Thank God for an 8GB flash drive!

I fully expect to be back in business by the first half of May. Thanks for your visits.

Some mo’ cat shots …


Folks seemed to like the shot of Mr. Cat (not to be confused with Mr. Katz) in the last post, so I figured I’d put some more up. These are from separate days, all after the last one, and they’re from the little Oly, because that camera seems to be at hand much more than the Nikon, which has to be fetched from its accustomed resting place and fished out of its bag (see my old MyOpera posts on camera bags … November 12 & 13, 2011) before it can be brought into action. All this, I suppose, is a reinforcement of the old axiom “The best camera is the one you have in your hand when you need a camera.”
Anyway, here are the shots, captions below each, if needed:

“What’s that out there?”

“I wish he’d just leave his pants here all the time.”

“Hmmm … nice new cushion …”

In this one, you can see the horror of that hair clump on his back … it’s getting to be the time that I have to immobilise him and cut it off. Sigh!
Anyway, folks … here you go.
Take care …
Cheers, all!
