Let me get this off my chest first....I detest Internet Explorer. I just spent hours in safe mode on my computer trying to get a system restore from yesterday's Microsoft update so Internet Explorer browser would be up to date. Thing is, I haven't done it in way over a year...'cause I NEVER use it only to check my blog on IE now and then. Last night, about 9:30 the update was still installing. We had finished watching a DVD movie, and I was truly ready for bed. So I left the updating and installing to run....this morning, because of a call of nature, I checked the computer and the tower was working/blinking. But, the monitor was shut off. That was the first clue something was amiss. After a long 4 hours getting to a system restore point through safe mode prompt on computer boot-up...finally, I was able to get the admin log in window to load, and got in!!! And my strongest fear was loss of all my bird photos!!!!! Got the update/installation taken off and we're back in business boys and girls!! And my folders were still, all intact. Yay. I hope to catch up on paying y'all a return visit from those who left comments...it's just been a hectic couple of days here.
Now that that is off my mind and the rant calmed me a bit, I'll share some photos.
The other day, after reading the Texas Bird Sightings, a couple of forum notes mentioned that a downtown cemetery here had a black billed cuckoo bird spotted!! Two different people, so perhaps [at least I thought] this was no bogus posting. Bud and I drove to the cemetery and walked around. No cuckoo bird spotted. In all actuality, just one dove and two grackles were seen by us. As we rounded the corner on the paved driveways where we walked I heard another golden fronted woodpecker, and spotted it. I took a couple of snapshots of it, and we left.
But...on the camera, I also had some photos of some beautiful memorials/headstones from the few pathways we took that day. And a crypt that was off the road a distance. Crypts are very spooky for me. I don't know why...they just are. To keep this from turning into a novel, I'll just post the photos:
