And I may later on so check back if you are bored enough to watch paint dry again. I could’ve taken photos today. The Farmer’s Market. Another Ninja load of boxes dropped off at Kiwanis. The wood delivery in preparation for the upcoming Polar Vortex. The GG sitting outside in the sun (or napping in front of the feetsball game). Miller Woods. But I am kind of done done done with photoooos for the moment. If you are one of my nine readers, you may remember me saying a while back that I had 8000 photos on my iPhone, roight? Well, I am now down to 7000! When I get down to about a thousand or two, I will back up my iPhone (yeah Sam, I know [wink]), and do an IOS upgrade.

Deleting photos on an iPhone is painful work because, as far as I know, you can only do it one… photo… at… a… time… If I am being a simpleton and there is a way that I do not know about, please let me know. And Simpleton seems to be my main career these days, so there well could be.

Actually, even if there is an easier way, I still feel like I have to go through them one by one. There are an amazing number of duplicates and fuzzies and just plain uglies. Delete. A few where my phone decided to take a pitcher of the ground. Delete. Bad photos of lake freighters. Whey do I bother when I can just look them up on Boatnerd? Delete delete delete. Then there are the pics where I photographed some piece of mail and texted its owner to let her know it had arrived. Or I photographed some long lost item and texted its owner, “Do you still want this?”

But then there are those that I actually want. The first 1000 were pretty painful because they documented the last couple months of The Commander’s life and the ensuing year or thereabouts. That time period was a one-foot-in-front-of-the-other blur to me and today’s pitcher blitz was a nostalgia trip I didn’t exactly ask for. I saved some and quickly deleted others. The lighted up bottle sitting on the commode (that she couldn’t use any more because she was totally bedridden by then) in her hoosegow room? Delete it! Quick! I did save one of about five photos of the TV in her room at FV the night she watched Obama give the State of the Union address. That once staunch Republican voter didn’t live to vote for Obama again.

Partay tonight. Not staying at the casino. Even the GG doesn’t seem all that interested. I was worried that he’d be entranced by the idea. But we’ll be schlepping back tonight. I can’t won’t do my Skunk Walk in downtown Daytwa and there is much to do here at the Landfill tomorrow, culminating in one of those boring family birthday dinners.

If I get a *good* partay pic, I’ll post it. For today, I am kind of done with photos. But I already said that.

    Photos are TOUGH. I have my computer screen saver set up to photos and I often come in to see photos of Patt or family ones, which are emotional and a jolt. However, I don’t want to get rid of them! I have always used a camera which makes it way easier to organize photos. (more of a PITA to take them and transfer them, but easier on the other end, if that makes sense) I love boring family birthday dinners; they are so special in their own understated way.
