Good evening my friends. I hope I find you well. Myself? Oh I have a bit of a bad back at the moment, but it is gradually improving. It was caused by another of those heavy lifting incidents I tend to get involved in on occasion. This time it was a large cattle drinking trough I tried to move. Silly of me really, it was perfectly all right where it was. I haven't got any cattle so it is quite a useless thing to have anyway. Except it adds to the general ambiance of the place. I am aiming for a 1950's farmyard look. Hence the old tractor, and various other vintage pieces.
I include myself in the term vintage by the way. Although unlike everything else around here I do still work. Well sometimes. What I mean is I am not broken down. Apart from my bad back that is. And my legs. And my sore toe. And a touch of arthritis. And my eyesight. And perhaps my hearing is going a bit. But apart from that I am fine. Except for my teeth, and the hair loss. Oh and my shoulder, that plays up a bit, and the, how shall I put it? The frequent need to pee. Apart from those few things though I am in perfect working order. So for goodness sake ladies, what's holding you back? Get in touch. Before it's too late. The important bits still work fine. At least they did the last time I gave them a try. Oh hold on a minute. Actually if I'm honest they may not have done. If I remember rightly there may have been too many glasses of whiskey taken. Sorry about this I seem too be rambling again.
I am writing this on my new laptop computer. This is the first post I have done on it, and it seems very sensitive to the touch. A bit like me really. The cursor keeps jumping about, which is a bit annoying, but I shall get used to it soon I hope. My other computer has been acting very strangely, shutting itself off for no reason that I can discern, and threatening me with all sorts of dire consequences if I do not do what it says I should do. I think maybe it is getting old and past its best. Hey, that seems to be a recurring theme around here just now. I am going to leave it to sulk on it's own for a while, see if it comes to it's senses.
Apparently the fault could be caused by something I have recently downloaded. That could only be a website about stationary engines. Which now I think about it is extremely slow. I wonder? I have no idea how to get rid of something once it is in my computer. This sounds like a job for my neighbour Steve. Maybe that is the problem?
I shall now attempt to post this article to the world. After I have previewed it. Which I have still got to learn to do. I wish this thing had a proper mouse. It isn't even plugged in you know. Modern technology, quite amazing!
