Hi Everybody,

I had hoped to upload 3 new wallpapers today and visit a few of you. Instead I have to deal with a power outage at my Mom's house. She (and my visiting sister) have been without power due to storms for about 18 hours now. Soon Woody and I will be going over to see if any of their freezer food can be salvaged, and have them come over to our "power filled" house, etc.

Gotta go for now!

Elaine :)

This is something that happened at an assisted living center.

The people who lived there have small apartments but they all eat at a central cafeteria. One morning one of the residents didn't show up for breakfast so my wife went upstairs and knocked on his door to see if everything was OK. She could hear him through the door and he said that he was running late and would be down shortly so she went back to the dining area.

An hour later he still hadn't arrived so she went back up towards his room and she found him on the stairs. He was coming down the stairs but was having a hell of time. He had a death grip on the hand rail and seemed to have trouble getting his legs to work right. She told him she was going to call an ambulance but he told her no, he wasn't in any pain and just wanted to have his breakfast. So she helped him the rest of the way down the stairs and he had his breakfast.

When he tried to return to his room he was completely unable to get up even the first step so they called an ambulance for him. A couple hours later she called the hospital to see how he was doing. The receptionist there said he was fine, he just had both of his legs in one leg of his boxer shorts.

Have a Safe & Happy Fourth of July! :)

Hi Everybody,

I've come by to say hello... and to report that I feel like I just burst through the sound barrier...or something like that...:P I've finally uploaded my first wallpapers since early in June. One thing after another kept getting in the way!

I've also finally written a journal post, been wanting to do that for a while too. Here it is:

https://my.desktopnexus.com/CollieSmile/journal /winging-it-12053/

If you are an American, have a Happy 4th of July! If you are not, I hope you live in a country that has a holiday just like it to celebrate!:D

Hi Everybody,

I'm posting this on Puppydawg/Roger's behalf. Unfortunately, his computer is acting up...AGAIN....! It got another virus, & he has had to send it out for repairs.

He's probably feeling a bit like this right now...

and he probably needs cheering up. He's probably going through DN withdrawal...

Spread the word, everybody!

Elaine :)

PS. I would have posted this about 3 days ago, but I didn't log into DN until today. Usually I come up on a daily basis... but my life has been like this lately:

I have non computer issues that I am trying to get resolved. I've missed being up here, and will be back on more often as soon as I can!

These clouds look like a razorback pig - the mascot of our University of Arkansas.
As I was visiting their museum, I had asked how old their dinosaur skeleton was?

"Well, this one is 65 million years, 14 weeks, and 3 days old," the woman curator replies.

"Wow, that's very specific. Was that determined through carbon dating, or some other method?" I asked.

"Actually, when I started working here they told me it was 65 million years old. That was 14 weeks, and 3 days ago," she happily explained with a smile.

An official Puppydawg/Roger Update!!!

He misses us all very much...

But...His computer is finally fixed so... He's a comin' back, to a Desktop Nexus site near you!

Unfortunately, he is experiencing some computer shipping delays.

But you can bet that when his computer gets back, he won't waste any time in coming here!

Keep an eye out for him! When he finally gets here, give him a hearty welcome, everybody!:D

Hi Everybody,

I'm dropping by to wish you a safe & thoughtful Remembrance Day/Memorial Day Holiday. :) Even if this isn't your country's day to remember those who gave their lives in battle, you will want to look at the wallpaper description to my poppy wallpaper, below. I learned some things about poppies and their special meaning for people all over the world-- thanks to a Canadian poet who fought in World War 1.

If it seems like I've been a little scarce up here lately, it's not your imagination. My foot is well enough now that I've been able to return back to work. I've written a short journal entry about that: here is the link to it if you are interested:

https://my.desktopnexus.com/CollieSmile/journal /getting-back-to-normal-11811/

In Michigan, we've been having beautiful weather lately. Now that I can finally walk around in my yard again, I've taken advantage of that with my camera. I've been snapping all sorts of Spring pictures. I missed almost 2 whole seasons thanks to being confined to my wheelchair, so I guess I'm trying to make up for lost time!

I hope that you are enjoying good weather wherever you live. Have a beautiful week!

Elaine :)

(or who HAVE served it!)

Live life to its fullest - no regrets!
CollieSmilePosted by CollieSmile   5/15/16 at 10:20pm

Hi Everybody,

I just wanted you to know that today I drove my car for the first time since my accident in October. It went fine.

Also, it looks like I'll be going into work tomorrow and seeing how it goes. On one hand I feel torn because working will mean less time for Desktop Nexus. (Which is why I went into a wallpaper uploading frenzy, today, I guess.)

On the other hand, I have been feeling somewhat restless & sort of wondering what it would be like to go back to a more normal life. As much as I love my collie, there are times when I think we've been getting on each others nerves a bit.

I hope all is well with you. Have a peaceful & blessed Sunday... :D

Elaine :)

A blonde pushes her small car into a gas station.
She tells the mechanic, "It died..."
After he works on it for a few minutes, it's idling smoothly.

She says, "What's the story?"

He replies, "Just crap in the carburetor."

She asks, "How often do I have to do that?"

Who can appreciate this beautiful time of the week called Friday? Not I, can you?

It's actually something I've wanted to do for years...photograph some tree leaves when they are first emerging. Every Spring it seemed like something would come up...too bus...
