Daily Pics #256.

Good morning everyone on this cloudy Saturday morning. I hope you are all able to enjoy at least part of your weekend. If the weather is nice don’t forget to go outside and enjoy it for a while. I am taking a chance here this morning and hopefully I can get this posted before my laptop freezes again. It’s such a weird situation with this machine. It will work for a few minutes, then it freezes solid. Fortunately I have everything backed up so nothing will be lost, but I can’t access anything with my phone. The joys of our modern technology. Jasper and the chipmunks don’t need to worry about that. They just worry about each other. Jasper yesterday came onto the deck and Skamper was getting his peanuts so the chase was on! Skamper went in one of the other boxes but there was already a chipmunk in there, and another in the next box, and another in the next box. Poor Jasper, he didn’t know what to do with 4 chipmunks to chase. They were going in 4 different directions and Jasper was scrambling to chase each one. Finally they all jumped off the deck with Jasper after one of them. Meanwhile, Coffee was sitting there loading up with peanuts and left before Jasper got back. It was fun to watch a confused Jasper trying to figure out which chipmunk to chase. I tossed a peanut to him, he sat up and looked around and a blue jay swooped down, grabbed the peanut and was gone. Then Jasper came over to check. You’re too slow Jasper. I gave him a peanut anyway. He ran off happy.

The featured image at the top is a painted turtle, very common around here, more so on the lakes than on the river here. It’s not the best picture, but the best of the 3 I managed to get. And in the picture just above is the pine marten that visited us the other morning. He hasn’t been back since. I better stop, my laptop is starting to have problems again. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.

  2. I’m glad your computer is working and that you have everything backed up. My “big” laptop (has a 17″ screen as opposed to my other laptop which is 15″), gets cranky once in a while. I back up everything to an external hard drive just in case it decides to go kaput. It’s 4 years old and I just recently replaced the battery so I hope to a few more years out of it. Good luck with your computer! β˜•οΈβ˜•οΈπŸ’» ⌨️🀞

    • It only worked briefly, goes to the doctor tomorrow then I will find out how much it will cost, though it might take a few days to get the news. If it’s too expensive I will just get a new one. Mine is only 3 years old so I really didn’t expect problems yet. Oh well, things happen. Have a great week!πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜Ίβ˜•β˜•

    • Sounds great, now you can relax a bit! Hmm, I guess that was probably yesterday. πŸ™„I’m behind right now. Sigh. Yes, I was planning on doing that, why spend $600 and get a 90 day warranty? πŸ€”Better to buy a new one. Still waiting for them to actually look at it. πŸ™„ This could take awhile. Have a great day Hilary! πŸ™‚πŸ˜Ί

  3. This reminds me of my husband. He have so many things complain about the computer and one time I got tired of it. He asked “Why is it doing that and this?”
    Irritated I said “It’s a computer that’s why!”
    He laughed. I did too because I realized that we use to compare computer to anything that makes no sense πŸ˜€

    • It could take a while to get my laptop fixed. There is only one person in town that fixes computers and he is very busy right now. The joys of small town living! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜Ή

  5. Hi Steve, Very Good Morning, How are you? Didn’t hear from you πŸ™‚ What??? 🧐 I can’t literally hear what you are talkingπŸ€” Did you heard? I just said Hi!😜 You think you had a backup? I had too, to read this post of yours πŸ˜ƒ Hope you had a good day, So this was the last post with the frozen laptopπŸ™„ I miss Jasper chasing series😻 and Muffin’s fun series “Steve’s dance” and Blue Jay’s relationship development with Steve 🐦 It’s fun with these modern machines, 🧐 ALl look fancy, and nothing insideπŸ™„ I wonder why no one had discovered this with woods yet πŸ€” Technology means, It is only plastic and metals, why no one ever think of making this with wood🧐 Okay, now I am talking too much, Sigh,… Did you hear that tooπŸ€” I am getting crazy, without having much time to write blogs. Or read some of my fav posts. Have a wonderful Day Steve πŸ₯³πŸŽ‰


    • Hi Cindy! That is the pine marten, it is very cute but a dangerous animal to have around, they love eating chipmunks and squirrels among other things. They are not big, about the size of a small house cat with short legs, but they can move fast through the trees. I will finally be back to blogging tomorrow after being away for 12 days because my laptop quit working. Have a wonderful day!
