Sometimes Technology Defeats Me

Quilt Retreat September 2013

This collage isn’t what I had in mind but Picasa had other ideas tonight—I may have to seek Rick’s help in creating slideshows and decent collages!  I tried Google+ also and didn’t have any more luck there than in Picasa. Sad smile

Today was spent unpacking and catching up—laundry, etc.  I did manage to get a couple rows quilted on LoraLee’s quilt.  I looked longingly at my unfinished projects as I unpacked—maybe I will get back to those soon! 

The TinTeePee had two rows of orange-ish trim which had faded to a dirty gray—this trim went around the entire outside of the trailer.  Michael pulled out the old and installed new, bright orange trim today to match the decals.  He also put the couch back inside the rig as well as the two twin bed mattresses.  When I get the trailer all cleaned and the beds made I will take some photos.

Yesterday we lost a very good friend, Gene.  Mary and Gene live in Spokane and we stopped to visit them on our way home from the Oregon coast.  Mary and Gene had a wonderful life together—they were both school teachers retiring early, sailing, traveling and enjoying life.  Gene’s health had been deteriorating for several years and Mary called this morning to tell us he had died.  We met them in Tucson, AZ in 2003 while participating in the Cowboy Action Shooting sport—they were both shooters.  We will miss him very much, may he rest in peace. 

Gene and MaryOne of my favorite photos of the two of them.


  1. Very sorry to read of your friend.
    I'm afraid technology seems to beat me on a regular basis, but I'm used to it.
    Keep on trying.

  2. I'm sorry for your loss... so glad they had those wonderful years together. I'm sure no help with Picasa... struggle with it on an almost daily basis.

  3. Sorry to hear of the lose of your friend.

    The collage works. Beautiful quilts!

  4. I'm sorry you and Mike lost a good friend today. ((hugs)) About the photo, I'm no help, but I would love to see all of them closer up. I especially like the one on the top row, fifth one in!

  5. So sorry you lost your friend.
    I like Picasa, but I'm not looking forward to figuring out Google+.

  6. That was very sad news about the loss of your friend, sorry to read that.

    A few years ago, I wrote a post on how to insert a slide show in a blog, here's the link:

  7. Sorry to hear about your friend Gene. Hard losing friends.

    I am more often than not defeated by technology - about the time I think I figure something out, it changes. And I have never figured out Google+ so I am with you on that.

  8. Technology can be testy. I've had my share of frustrating times with software and hardware.

    Sorry for the loss of your friend.

  9. Howdy Janna & Mike,

    Sorry to hear about your friend, Gene's, passing... As we get older it seems as though we are all losing friends and relatives, faster than we used to...
    May the Good Lord hold his wife and family close and give them comfort... Even though his health was deteriorating they weren't ready to let him go...

    Hope all of the Big Timber crew is well and having a HAPPY DAY!!!!!!!
