Waiting for the Locksmith
We don't use our car very often, but yesterday we had to drive to Munich for an emergency dentist appointment for Janos. When we got home and tried to open the garage door, the type that swings up, it wouldn't budge. I turned the key this way and that but to no avail. This morning I called the superintendent of the building and he came immediately, but couldn't fix it. He said we were lucky that the car was outside and not locked away. I didn't bother to explain, but the real problem is that our bikes are locked away, we seldom need the car. Except when there is an emergency dentist appointment like yesterday.
Next I called the building manager who will send a locksmith. I am waiting. It's again a grey and rainy day, the kind we have had too many of this summer. But I wanted to get out for a ride anyway. In the meantime I drink tea.
My first attempts at creating new pages using the tablet were unsuccessful, at the most I succeeded in messing up the whole format of the website and spent the rest of the morning getting it straightened out. I might have to resort to writing my travel journals in the blog. This means the last day comes first,and, well, it's just not a journal. Perhaps I should try again, at the risk of messing up the whole website again. The other option is to write up my bike tours on my computer when we are back home. But I find it very unsatisfactory to try to capture the days in words weeks afterwards. That's what I got the tablet for anyway, so I could write my journals while traveling.
Writing up the trip when we are home takes a lot of time. I spend days at the computer, the words just don't flow. I also spend a lot of time editing my pictures, more than I would on the road where my editing tools on the tab are limited.
Now the technical part, how to add pages and blog posts using my tablet. I discovered I could install an app on the device. Then spent a whole lot more time trying to make the app work. I'm not done yet.
... is up and running again. It is a space for notes on my daily doings - walks, bike rides, photo outings, travel. Thanks for reading.
