A day of melting snow and dealing with Amazon for another Amazon Prime fouled up order.

Amazon Prime.  I signed up for a year last Summer, mainly to get free 2-day shipping. Well, the shipping turns out to be free but it’s seldom 2 day, more often 5 or 6 depending on the day of the week.

My recommendation, avoid it. It’s not worth the money.

Other than that, things are well here in the foothills of Denver.

Doobie has discovered that he can get to any horizontal surface in the kitchen. Trudy found him gobbling down the last of a box of danish this morning. No matter what you do, they always act like dogs. Doobie is a chow hound.

I’m plotting out a bit of Railroad photography for this year. I need fresh stuff man.

Train Tuesday

It is “Train Tuesday” in my photography group.

It is also “Sunny Tuesday” which is nice to see as I look out my office window. Yesterday was a fairly cold and dreary Winter day. It reminded me of my years living in the Chicago suburbs. The difference, in Chicago the snow never melted and it eventually turned black from automobile exhaust. Naperville, Illinois, a suburban Winter hell and I don’t want to get going about life in Kentucky in the Winter. It doesn’t snow a lot in Kentucky, but there is nothing at all inviting about the cloudy, cold, humid, dreary Winters in Kentucky. I’ll take Colorado any day.

I probably should have made a run to Rocky Mountain Arsenal this morning for some photos, but I’m getting over some kind of bug and just not fully motivated at the moment.

No worries, I did get a handful of decent shots on Sunday morning and I’ll be editing and sending those up to the stock agencies.

I’ve noticed increased bird activity this week. Looks like the migratory birds are starting to come in to the area. That means I’ll need to start looking at the Tree in the Lake for Great Blue Herons. They started coming in last year in late February.

Enjoy your day.
