please post the text used to create an image

It’s frustrating when an org makes a text announcement for posting but converts it to an image or screenshot and only posts that. People with limited vision get left out.

Since text was used to create the image, it should be kept and posted along with the image, then everybody is in! Images don’t amplify well, and those who use screen readers and things get left out.

Example below of image only. Even with my OK vision, it’s not easy to read.

anything but direct aid to the people

Funeral services advertising like mad on my Facebook feed. Maybe it’s that government gift they just got from FEMA. ⚰️ 🙄

1960s nuke fun

When I was in grade school, there was a particularly hot flare of the Cold War going on, and the school was going over plans for what to do if the nukes flew. 💣

After the drill, my teacher said, “y’all know this is ridiculous, right? What are you going to have, half an hour, maybe? It’s not going to matter if you’re here, on the school bus, or at home, it’s going to be over.”

I liked that woman. She dug into a lot of subjects with that directness.

all the wrong moves

Someone I know was going off today about people who use self checkouts. If I don’t want to see anybody, stressing, feel down, etc., themz the ones I use.

— I also shop at Walmart sometimes AND use the self checkouts.
— I have an Amazon credit card.
— I prefer Starbucks over those “small, locally owned, coffee shops.”

Unfriend me now! lol


A friend mentions that upgrading his 2007 Outlook will cost $140. That’s for an install on one Windows machine.

I think, “well, OK then!”

small dog problems

The usual Saturday night dog problems.

brian birthday

Birfday dinner with Brian at Acropolis.  🎂

bird walk

Brian and I went out hiking in the park to look at some birds. We have on our matching Audubon birding shirts. 🐦

In one pic I’m on my back on a bench flinging my knee around so I can survive the walk.

the sweet little “bu”

My little rental “Bu.”

Got to be about the nicest rental car I’ve ever had. I never imagined that such an average car as a Malibu could be so good. I had to drive the hell out of that thing this past week.

— comfortable
— engine responds immediately to throttle
— combination of digital and analog controls. I didn’t have to do an in-depth study before driving away.

I’ve gotten luxury upgrades from the rental car companies before that weren’t as good as this Malibu.

I don’t need a car right now, but if I did, I wouldn’t mind one of these.

rental car

Rental car. Chevy Malibu.

Favorite of spouse beaters, pot smokers, drinkers, those who spill their seed on the ground, and other such losers and criminals. Same goes for Pontiac Grand Am. 😉

Ha! It’s actually one of the nicest rentals I’ve ever had.
