But life goes on, even when the computer doesn't. I have been gardening, writing letters longhand, and enjoying life without a computer. However, I missed being able to record my photos of various goings on with this blog. So here is a little catching up... of mostly baby goats.
I'll start with a waterfall excursion from last week. Cosper Creek Falls is just a few miles up the road from us. Since I'm bottle feeding baby goats three times a day, I can't go far or long. I liked this photo so well that Matt made it my start page on my new computer. More about this falls is on my waterfall project blog page http://ourwaterfallproject.blogspot.com/2016/04/cosper-creek-falls-and-kissing-rock.html
I also took lots of photos of our blooming crab apple and pear and apple trees... spectacular this year. But those photos I have not gone through yet so I'll save them for an entire Beautiful Spring blog post later... when I work up the courage to wrestle with the photo editing program again...
Mostly I took photos of baby goats.

I took lots of photos of neighbor children loving up baby goats, just yesterday.
I did not get good photos of this. But the swallows had a great time diving after the white feathers that friend Velta saves for me from her molting geese each year. And the kids and their mom had a great time watching the swallows do aerial acrobatics while trying to steal feathers from each other so they could take the captured feathers into their own nest gourds.
Between morning chores and afternoon bottle feeding last Saturday, I dashed off to Miller Woods and their Earth Day celebration to catch friend Karen Hoyt's Birds of Prey demonstration. She does a great job spreading information to children and their parents about our resident hawks and owls, with the help of her educational birds that, because of various injuries, cannot survive in the wild.

Johnny is now without a cell phone as his died suddenly yesterday. But he thinks it just needs a new battery. Hopefully, in some dusty corner of some warehouse, batteries for our ancient cell phones still exist. How strange that we have become dependent on these electronic devices that we lived happily without for many, many years.
