Traditional Thursday #290

The Wife standing naked in front of the mirror drying her hairWe did not have a lot photographs since the camera stopped taking pictures. Fortunately, there were a few that we liked so, we can post a mix of new photos and videos rather than reaching into the way-back machine.

The Wife fixing the pillows on the bedHere is a candid photograph of The Wife making up the new bed after our photo session was over. We’re not posting it for any particular reason. It just seemed like a fun picture. Life is good now that the days aren’t so cold, wet and dreary. We really enjoy the sunshine. Even when we aren’t outside doing things. The days are long, the sun is warm. And summer is finally here.

Traditional Thursday #288

So far, this has been a good month. We’re slowly starting to forget the cold, dreary days of April. And, if we don’t have a thunderstorm pop up, we can get in the pool for the first time of the season sometime over the weekend. Plus, we’ve finally been able to row consistently on our normal schedule. That shouldn’t be unusual; but, this year, it has been. So, it’s good to be able to enjoy the spring both inside and out.

We ended up going out of town for a long weekend so we only recently had the opportunity to make another movie. This time the camera did not stop recording unexpectedly. The springs in the new bed definitely make less noise than the springs in the old bed; but, more than we would like. Still, it’s an improvement. What do you think? We will be posting a longer video with sound on Friday.

I’m not quite sure what our signature video topic for 20018 will be; but, right now, we serendipitously seem to creating, more high-quality videos. (Although the sound track still needs work.) Here is the continuation from Tuesday. It looks like, once again, it will be to wet to go out and play for a while.

Here is more of the movie that we made. Not one of my better transcoding efforts. It was still fun to create even if a lot was lost in the process of re-encoding for the web. We still have our ongoing problems with sound. Our camera captures high-quality .AVI videos. So, our originals are usually a good starting point. And something fun to look back upon later.

Traditional Thursday #281

For some reason, neither of our home computers have not backing up every day like they are supposed to. It hasn’t caused a problem yet. But, still, it annoying. Especially since the software we use is not a free and less than a year old. It certainly doesn’t inspire confidence. Particularly for something that’s supposed to provide protection against catastrophic failures. Anyway, here is more of the video we made.
