Apparently, Live Writer will still not publish properly on Blogger (?), but the problem seems to be with the photos …?
Using the Blogger editor is awkward and counter-intuitive at best. And that is when you have good internet access. When you do not have internet access available, well it is downright impossible to design a post. I’m on the road again for a while and am getting a bit short on my cellular allowance, coverage where I am is very spotty, and free internet is not available here. So what I am going to try to do is to write the text portions of the blog using Windows Live Writer, and later add the photos using the cumbersome Blogger editor – when I can find some reliable internet. The other alternative I may try at a later date is to dump a whole collection of possible blog photos onto a draft of blogger when I have fast internet, then later add the text when using an expensive or slow connection!
So here goes … (wish me luck!)
Hailey is doing Ok, and her only concern now is eating enough, and a couple of persistent sores on the bottoms of her hind feet. Both of us are wondering whether or not her catnip plant from last year will re-sprout in the pot it was growing in. Some of us are more impatient than others!
When that tires her out, it just might be time for a nap in front of the fireplace!
Weather in June was mostly cold and wet, but some friends I used to work with decided to hold a party. And they sure know how to throw a party. They live on a gorgeous ranch/acreage on the banks of the river. For the party, they set up a huge party tent, complete with wooden floor, a stage with lights, and even had a food truck and porta potties on site. For entertainment, they got the Wardens band, all of whom I used to work with – and who I managed to catch on tour in southern California last winter. They even had an opening act to warm the crowd up. Of course there was lots of room for camping, and there were RV’s tents, vans, trailers parked all over. And as luck would have it, the weather was good, just long enough to pull off the party!

But not all the planes are airliners on long haul flights. I’d been seeing some low level flying that was anything but in a straight line.
I would have thought it was a bit late to still be building a nest, but this robin was having none of it!
During some of the heavy rains, the river was up, and I saw a few full-size green trees taking their final trip down the river.
With boredom coming on, I was contemplating heading for another trip across the country to Newfoundland … Fortunately, RV friends Don & Donna had a closer suggestion. Hailey and I ended up crashing their party up on Abraham Lake, at one of our favourite boondocking spots.
We also lucked out with the weather for a short hike up to Siffleur Falls, after crossing the North Saskatchewan river on a large suspension bridge.
