Why 1) does WordPress log me off every day or so even when I ask to remain logged in 2) why do I have to enter the same password 5 times to actually log-in. even when the password is correct? Stupidity!

This week’s Photo Hunt challenge is joy.
The joy comes in finding yet more photos from my childhood, in this case slides. All the photos here were taken when I was about 5 going on 6.
The first is one I don’t recall having seen before, of Mom and me outside our house in Kemptville, before she remarried. It is also a photo full of joy.
The second and third are of me with the cherry (?) tree that we planted in the back of the house. The first must be the Spring before the other. The second, taken of me in my Easter finery. I still remember that day. Someone have me Cream Soda, the pink kind, and I was excited and the soda fizzed up and came out my nose and all over my dress and sweater. I still cannot drink Cream Soda…
The last is of me on the Kemptville Creek with my new skates, probably Christmas Day. The man is our landlord, Mr. Moffatt. The scene behind us hasn’t changed in 50 years. The service station is now a repair shop but that is it.

I tendered my resignation from the Board of Directors, today, citing health reasons which is the case. My blood pressure is sky high and I haven’t been sleeping properly – if at all. As I was typing the first line of this post, my doorbell rang and it was the President of the Board telling me that he wouldn’t accept it for two weeks so if I changed my mind I could rescind my offer. I don’t have to concern myself with Board matters, except where a vote is needed or a cheque to be signed. I am willing to do that. At least the offer is still on the table.
I truly enjoy working with three of the members. They are terrific. Unfortunately, because of an ongoing situation which has meant for stress since the previous Board was elected (of which I was also a member) the stress has built and built. I said that if my health was compromised, it mean that I wasn’t in the best position to care for my mother. She (and my own health) is my primary concern.
So, we shall see how things go in the next few weeks. I don’t suspect that the problem that is causing the stress is going to go away and I suspect it will get more serious (which really is unfortunate because someone will lose in the long-run – not us). I just need to concentrate on my own health and that of my mother’s.
I feel a LOT better now that I put it on the table and hope that things resolve. I just can’t put myself through much more.
‘Tis the season for the clocks to be turned 1 hour ahead.

WHY will WordPress not allow me to put in line spaces????
I keep putting them in but they disappear. Frack!
This is really annoying. The only way I can make a new paragraph is by adding in a — between the lines I want an extra line between!
Okay…. Now, after 35 tires, the paragraphs I wanted appear (on my previous post… not here…). I did nothing different. WTF?

In the last 24 hours, I got about 50 spam messages. For the next while, I have to moderate all comments… sorry…

This week’s PhotoHunter theme is “Open”….
I immediately thought of my cat, Benjamin who whenever he discovers a door, box, drawer, whatever, he HAS to investigate.
Just to say…. I do not like harnessing my cat. However, we have some neighbours who are rather pedantic about the co-op by-law that says you have to have your cats harnessed. Other cats freely roam, both from inside and outside the co-op, but for some reason, Benjamin seems to be a target of one particular neighbour’s complaints. While every other person I ask hasn’t a single complaint about Benjamin or any other cat, this one neighbour has complained freely to everyone but me.
To my knowledge, he hasn’t actually gone in her yard and since she has never complained to me, I don’t even know what he’s supposed to be doing that she finds problematic.

Probably my own fault. What with the preparations for tax time followed closely by the move, I missed and then forgot to rebook my follow-up.
Still, I am seeing my family doctor next week and going to request the Shingles inoculation. I just hope I can get it while I am suffering from the eye Shingles. Fingers crossed.
