It’s been a week since I’ve been able to post, so yes…I am still hanging around. Like these Purple Martins that stopped for a brief rest on the wire before continuing on their migration travels southbound for the winter.
First, the heat wave continues in Maryland and I’ve been wearing myself out in the hot mid-day to take care of my old mare and to continue my battle with the barn flies.
But worse of all – my new Dell XPS15 laptop has been on the fritz and I’ve been unable to load any programs or even browsers with ease. What should take me moments is taking me literally hours. So I’ve been trying to diagnose the problem, backing up all my files and removing some programs to see if that’ll ease up on the memory drain that Adobe Creative Cloud causes.
I still haven’t solved my problem by a long shot, and it’s time to call in the Dell doctors. In the meantime, at least I can share that I’m not the only one still hanging around.
Yes..our lovely Osprey family is still around, although only the youngest one – Alejandro – is spending any time on the nest.
He keeps hoping that either mom or dad will deliver dinner and after a week I was starting to worry about him as he’s refusing to learn how to fish. Thankfully, one afternoon I saw both parents deliver fish to the nest one right after the other. It didn’t take but a moment for big brother Diego to come in to get his share. Oh yes..that went well with Alejandro. He gave his brother a what for and chased him off!
So while I try to figure out my technical problems, please bear with me and I promise to be back in full force. If anything – bird migration has begun!
Good luck with the computer! You must be tearing your hair out!! Lovely to see the ospreys again and the martins are great fun 😀
You know I am. Starting to sound like a sailor.
Pirate speak has been my default this week too for reasons of malfunctioning family members!!!
That’s funny Sarah. 🙂
Lol 😉 Have you got it sorted yet? Hope so for the sake of your sanity!!
LOL ! No Sarah..I went and got another laptop to work on. I need to call Dell to get it worked on.
I don’t blame you!! What a pain though. It’s the sort of thing that can set you so far back on processing that it’s a real struggle to catch up again. Good luck with Dell!!
Thank you so much Sarah. I’ll need it ! Although going back to Windows 7 has been a dream ! No tasking the hard drive
I actually haven’t had a single problem with my windows 10 upgrade and I had put it off for ages with worry about what it might mess up on the laptop!! Got lucky I guess. The laptop is getting on a bit so I really thought it might all go horribly wrong. Technology eh?
This is awesome news Sarah. Yes..I think I’ve got a lemon for a laptop.
If life gives you lemons….
…..throw it back and demand something sweeter 😉
The things that they discuss day to day about the things they learn eh 🙂 memory leaks are the worst, I hope that if it’s software that they’ll patch it :O
I think it’s a hard drive problem. Ick!
gah! for a laptop too :O
LOVE you capture of the Purple Martins – it’s simply glorious!😃
Thanks Joanne. I was so lucky to have seen them.
Sibling rivalry: you gotta love it! Great photo! Best of luck with laptop. 💙💛💖
I’m using a new one, but want my other one back Fatima. Alejandro is still hanging around the nest as of this morning, but I don’t see Zorro and Esperanza or his older brother and sister. I think they left for the south already. 😦
