I’m still alive and well, and have not forgotten this goal or the promised prizes. My computer, however, is not so alive and well, so I’ve been a bit delayed. Right now I am using my OLD computer, which features Windows 98 and Internet Explorer 6. And no slot for my photo card (so all my pics are uploaded onto a friend’s computer). IE is really, really, really slow, and gets jammed up easily. This is my first venture on to 43Things with it, and I wasn’t sure how it would do. Not too bad, so far – it only took me about 20 secs for this box to open up when I clicked on “write an entry”.
I had some of the prizes kind of lined up, then realized I need to give out the awards first, so I know what I am mailing where; unfortunately, even viewing pictures on this computer is next to impossible, since it tends to jam up IE moving from picture to picture. Not to mention moving from page to page. So, I promise to find some quality and quantity time to spend on a decent computer elsewhere – either at the library or at a friend’s house.
Meanwhile, I miss the scavenger hunts, and all of you, and wonder what I am missing out on. 22 months ago
What else can I do? Keep this goal alive until next April? I can’t get any pictures to load from the external hard drive (at least, I think that’s the problem…we’ll save this entry WITHOUT a picture and see if it works) and we’re closing in on July here, people. I do have pictures for most of the other things on the list but they’re just not gonna show up here. Sorry!
I enjoyed the hunt but what with all my computer problems, I couldn’t see adding more goals with photographs as the entry. I hope to try this again when these stupid computers and cameras are all figured out! 23 months ago

It took me forever to get this photo because (1) I’ve only recently begun getting up early and (2) I didn’t know until now where the sun comes up in this town. But finally I found it. These birds were having their morning bath in the new sun’s reflection. 2 years ago

In Italy they say “April fish”.
This one was foolish enough to be caught and served to me.

Was really looking forward to completing it and then lost all enthusiasm when the whole ‘sharing’ thing kicked off.
May join in with some future ones, as it was fun :) 2 years ago
