When I see the header image of the WordPress page The Daily Post, it brings back memories. Memories of how my little fingers used to hurt when I missed and the finger went down in between the keys … I’m old enough to have used one of those! We had them in school. In the end of my last year, they had purchased three, electrical typewriters! We were allowed to use them a little bit at the time …always while being supervised. It was big!
When I’d worked for about a year, came the fluid white stuff that you could use for correcting typos. That was really cool, but not when you had a bunch of carbon copies.
Because of this rapid, electronical development, I feel really old when I think of all this. I started working 1972. Now I can post a blog with my BlackBerry if I want to!
On a totally different note — the urban wildlife in this city where we life is … rich, to say the least! The tide was coming in yesterday, when we were out and many harbour seals were coming in too.
Their cute faces are irresistable … this one got close enough for a decent shot.
He looks like … «I would like to say HI, but I’m too shy»…
After that little dose of marine wildlife, I went to pick up a book at the library.
In Facebook, I joined something called Goodreads, in order to get some new ideas of what to read. Last week, I read a book called «Nights in Rodanthe» by Nicholas Sparks, which I’ve mentioned earlier here in the blog. That was a story, totally after my own taste, and he has written several novels. I signed up for another one, that had arrived yesterday. The friendly lady at the library front desk, told me she loved his work too and had just finished reading his biography which she recommended. So…I picked that one up too and started reading last night. Very promising.
