Life is a beach! - Update

Edit to add:  Tues. 8:20 a.m. Laptop delivered and signed for!  Yahoo!

Yesterday was a happy beautiful spring-like day! It was a treat to see the sunshine.

Signs of spring: (clickable)

I walked to the beach and because the tide was going out, there was a strip of sand which always makes for easier walking.

The seagulls were busily dropping and cracking shells on the rocks.

There were other signs of bird activity as well.

A few other people were about, but for the most part it was just the sea and me. I thought the gulls were the only birds to photograph, when suddenly a shape appeared and I was able to take this shot of a large bald eagle.

As I headed off for home, I spied this red-head up on the utility pole.

Believe it or not, the continuing adventures re my new laptop ~
Monday morning ~ bright and early, I was ready! Shortly after 8 a.m., a delivery van pulls up across the street. I was so excited! 

A fellow lifts a cardboard box out of the back of the truck and heads .... NEXT DOOR!


"Hello," I say..."over here!"

He checks the address on the box and says,

"No, this isn't for you ~ it's for your neighbour."

"But, but," I say, "here's the 'missed delivery' notice that was left on the door on Friday."

He comes to look at it, still carrying the box (which, I notice is indeed addressed to the neighbour next door).

"Oh yes," says he, "I had a box for you but no one answered and I needed a signature."

"Where is it now?" says I.

"Well, it's not in the truck," says he. "It must be back at the warehouse ~ maybe it will come later today or tomorrow."

"Aarghh!" I said.

  1. Aarghh is right! I'd be in my car and headed down to the warehouse - sword in hand demanding them to "stand and deliver"!!

  4. Hi Anon ~ Very tempting idea ~ luckily it was delivered this morning, otherwise I would have been putting pedal to the metal!

    Hi Nikki ~ Yes, we have had a very mild winter and spring has taken the opportunity to show her colours ~ the startling blue of the primrose caught my eye! Yes, the laptop finally got here ~ whew!

    Hi Flighty ~ I'm sorry to hear you are still getting cold weather, with promise of more. It is uplifting to have some decent weather and hope you soon experience more spring like temps. Your crossed fingers must have done the trick!
