QUESTIONS: 

Damn This New Blogger Sh*T Change!! Every single time the Blogger folks make a change, WHY MUST THEY, my vintage MacBook Pro doesn't digest those changes. It Blows!! What happened to the edit icons?? I was planning on adding a number of you to my "inspired" blogs but its gone. Under my layout, I can add or delete widgets but not edit or add?!?!?! Anyone?? Muller

I am currently struggling with clicking links, commenting on blogs, and even replying on my own blog. My friend Mariette's experienced difficulties dropping a comment, Little Wendy just ran a stellar event in ATL and my comment on her blog disappeared, and zero notifications transport to my email address. Isn't that weird, absolutely no email notifications??? YouTube notifications still operate just fine but Blogging, NOPE. Mr Bill, Olga Girl, And Brother Drew, Erased. So Frustrating

Last question and it isn't a yes or no question. The question is not about your view but the why. In the middle of dire climate change, horrific war on Ukrainian soil, why the Phuc are Americans still discussing Roe vs Wade??? Why are we still spending millions of dollars over this issue?? Again, I am not asking for your side on women reproductive organs. I am asking why we are spending money!?! It is so disappointing for me as there are much bigger fish to fry. Enough of my frustrations and on to better content. Big Hugs 

CYCLING:

Much better outings recently as I have dedicated or prioritizing my time and scheduling "me time" these days. Mostly, been scheduling these rides as therapy for my own exigencies. A majority of my rides are consumed with making phone calls , headwind, cold winds , cold fronts , and bone chilling headwinds. Can you imagine the picture that I am projecting??  

This was a cool like ride by observation in the photo above. A real true cowboy was using his three Boarder Collies to herd /work his four massive Angus Cows. Another highlight was an evening ride and quietly listening to the sounds of flowing creeks before the deposit themselves into the Mighty Colorado River and flow together as one. The birds are unreal this Spring and wish I was a member of the Audubon  Society because we have such beautiful yellow belly birds and albino white harons or cranes. I can't tell the difference between these two families of cranes. Plus the soaring eagles, hawks, osprey , and other hunting verities and sizes of birds of prey are simply mesmerizing.

Numerous newbies on the multi used trail systems these days. They are unable to say hello or are completely off guard when I say Hello Hello. Cracks me up on how they stand out so and clearly present themselves as such. Some of them are unsure of their current situation and waving is just not an option. And when I say," Hello." Pure Innocent Shock. Classic


Last Friday was Field Trip Fun Day as the Friday Night 7pm Group gathered at the old courthouse for a group ride around town. I was informed that the theme for the night was Birthday. I replied with "OK?" thought about for the day or two or whenever The Dude sent me the update. Decided that a Clown Outfit made sense to me. Every birthday could use a happy go lucky clown, Right??

And all kinds of life came out for the ride and over half of the 72 riders were dressed up. A group of One Wheel came out and one of the gals in that group worked over a bubble maker. Classy Move. Then this guy jumped in at the college, so 72 plus a door rider, made his way back downtown on his electric board. Yes, that is a proper front door bolted to an electric skateboard. Ideals I Have

After we all dispersed towards our separate ways, The Dude and I marauded the town for a few more hours. And check out that night shot above. Can you believe that I shot that with my old dinosaur iPhone?? Nutz 

JET AWAY:

I have two house and dog sitting gigs coming up so I shot up to Marble of a car camping overnight. Let me explain to you how peaceful the higher elevations are these days.  


There is just something about solitude as those twinkling little ice crystals dotting the night sky vaults magic down upon all of us. Drifting off with the Crystal River trickling on by is the cats meow. And a mountain glow sunrise, spectacular. 


If I ever begin suffering heart or healthy issues, along a crisp mountain spring creek is where you will find my carcass.  


Smile, Shine, And Roll On 

ORTHO:

My antiquated office time has brought such a comforting sense of joy. After all the construction, manual labor, and walking yards behind the noise maker, Body Work Rocks!! 


Working with an older client and the funniest thing happened. I began with their feet and they were jabbering away with random thoughts and then just like that, SNORING. I mean, out cold. I continued to work my magic and filled the session with my patterns and releases. They slept and snored over the entire 50 minutes. Cracked me up and they were so happy and refreshed when their little sleepy eyes fluttered back to life.  


With another client, crazy A$$ winds, they are suffering from Tennis Elbow. As we worked together the windows rattled from gusty winds. The photo below is from my office and I added a filter effect to capture the Utah Dust. Anyway, they appreciated the work and I am so thankful to be switching gears again and spending more time in the office these days. Life Is Good

MAGIC CARPET RIDE:

Will be hosting a righteous edition of the MCR on May 19th at 6:30pm. Click here to listen live during the show. Click ( HERE ) to listen to the recorded show from the calendar after May 20th. 


While I am hosting the Magic Carpet Ride, will be featuring short sound bites and/or clips from The Twilight Zone. Plenty of Rod Serling voice overs throughout the show and eerie well known clips as well. 

I continuously hear songs that I impulsively add to my playlist. Currently, I am sitting at just over 4 hours of music in this particular playlist for a 2 and a half hour time slot. Happy Friday The 13th 

GOALS:

  1. Wag More Bark Less
  2. Smooth Out Issues
  3. Ring Friends
  4. Intake More H2o
  5. Host The Best Dang Show 

I leave you with my spirit animal. Will happily share that story with you if you're interested in another post. Hiking along with the dog that I am currently watching over and caring for. The dog was roaming around just below me when I heard the distinct sound of those rattles above me. While the dog bound around down below, I circled up and around and suspicious observed this beauty. Check Out Those Rattles

Grin And Say Nice Things,

Cheers

  2. The Bee Gees. Fun!
    Yes, well. Blogger is for free and I reckon students are at it maybe.
    Sometimes it helps to take another browser. Sometims not, though.
    The beer looks good. I just bought some very cool Steam Punk ones.
    Nice scene of the cowboy. The closest I came to an Angus Cow was a pie...
    That skateboard!
    Beautiful night-pic with that tree.
    LOL on the snoring.
    "Life is good" sounds good. GLad we don´t have such big snakes, though usually they avoid people, right.
    Good last words, will do, cheers.

  3. I am learning lyrics to songs I already know very well.

    What happened was you had too much too drink one night and thought I am over the stupid old gay Australian bloke as a mate. Delete.😉

    Very pretty cactus flowers.

    I had some problems commenting because of robot verification not coming up. It seems ok now.

    Regarding Roe v. Wade, here we shrug our shoulders at our lack of understanding and say, Only in America.

    I suggest phone off when riding. Men can't do two things at once properly. You should know that.

    I am very unsure about your spirit animal. Not one I would choose.

  4. Blogger love it or hate it, but it's free. I wonder why they disabled the edit feature in the blog. Now you have to go through settings in order to change anything in your sidebar. Birthday ride sounds like it was a lot of fun and those puppers look cute. For puppers that is 😸And yes, I'd love to hear about the snake spirit animal. Enjoy your awesome adventures until you post again.

  5. Wow. I would have a stroke coming upon a rattler. I am so glad we don’t have them here. You were lucky the dog was occupied elsewhere.

    The party sounds great and your costume was ideal. I love the photo of the night sky.

    The house/pet sitting gigs sound perfect for you. Take care.

  10. Same thing here I cant update some of the things on the right sidebar of the blog...all I know is go to the create page and select Layout..and try to do it in that mode. I had to switch to Follow.it to get my email subs working again....for the ones who wanted to sign up when Blogger stopped their email subs. What elevation was that rattler at? I think your Albino Heron is a Great Egret by the description. Im a bird Nerd!! People will do what they need to on the Roe.Wade..it could get ugly. I agree why do we keep circling around in a Right Handed Turn??

  11. Hello,
    Wow, that rattler is scary, I am glad you and the dog were safe. Love all the dogs and photos. The night sky shot is beautiful. The electric skateboard looks huge. The flowers are beautiful, the patio area looks nice. I was hoping our country could move forward not backwards. What will be next? I will continue to look ahead, not in the past and hope for the best. Take care, have a great new week!

  12. Dearest Travis, this is the comment that I posted at 10:37 on May 14...
    From my email that I get for subscribing to your reply comments!

    Dearest Travis,
    Guess this time I have to copy my comment before 'trying' to publish. Blogger indeed is playing tricks!
    We just wait and see if they resolve certain issues, it is too much trouble for trying to break our head about it!
    That clown costume was perfect; you sure were in the mood for it as well.
    Haha snoring while being massaged... one wonders what else they took?!
    Wish I could bike but my mid–back is not allowing me right now... hate this and in two weeks I'll be on a flight so need to be FIT.
    Wow, that rattle was a senior one, with a full belly it looks like. We ought to respect them!
    Big hugs,
    Mariette

  13. The world is totally f*** right now. Everyone is fighting, whether over land like Ukraine, with guns at these shootings, over politics, over freedom. I think I'll look at those pups in your post. What faces and I love the paw on you. And that is some big rattle. Hope you get some more mountain time when things getn crazy. hugs-Erika

    A very creative idea to go as a clown to Field Trip Fun Day, you were very funny, and the night photo was really fantastic.
    All the dogs in the photos are so awesome.
    I would be terrified if I found a rattlesnake.
    Good luck to reach your goals

  21. Yes, why change something that works very well? Google have form. As for "climate change", there's a lot of confusion between the natural cycles of the weather and climate over the millions of years, not computer modelling with 150 years of dodgy data. "Settled science" does not exist because real science is always questioning.

  23. Don't even get me started on these new blogger changes. I know blogging is a dying platform. All the kiddies want to be on social media and not reading blogs, but by golly us old timers are still using it. Stop making changes that frustrate us.

    I have come to the conclusion that it doesn't matter what political party is running things, our tax payer dollars will always be used to fund stupid crap. It's always easy to spend money that doesn't belong to you, I suppose.

    Those doggies are too cute. I'd have a hard time leaving them after the sitting gig was up. They look like a friendly bunch!

    Have a good week ahead, Padre!
