movieStar’s great-grandfather’s old automobile, parked for good.
Sitting behind a warehouse, she found it this weekend.
There’s a post coming, and it will be a long one. But I’ll leave that for another day. For now, a photo.
It’s now past 1:30AM, and we’re finally home, and in bed. Music still blasting outside, should stop by 4AM.
If she makes it that late without falling asleep, tinyMovieStar will attend her first concert today. Not pushing it, of course, but this one would be perfect as her first go at live music performances.
Sitting at home, avoiding work for as long as I can manage, the prompt comes up on my calendar (thanks @Burk): Silhouette. A postcard version of it comes to mind.
Hope you have a great weekend.

I wondered how the blog would look like in a text browser now that Alt Text is being implemented, so I went ahead and installed Lynx. It works great, and the image descriptions show up in yellow. Nice.
Managed to edit the entire assignment I had left. I guess I can call today a success already, and we didn’t even have lunch yet!
Although I’m not taking part of this year’s May Photoblogging Challenge, I had to give it a go today.
The Richat Structure, AKA Eye of Africa.
And a mountain range in Iran.
It’s a beautiful planet, and the only one we have. We should take better care of it.
Is everything alright, @HemisphericViews? 😂
5 days of shooting set photography coming up next week. Mixed feelings, as usual. Money will be ok, but I’ll miss seeing the girls the whole day. Should leave before they’re up, and probably be back after bed time.
Met two of my oldest (and dearest) friends at the paper, and we walked to the restaurant.
Still time to meet another one by chance, while waiting outside the building.
The restaurant was nothing to rave about: slow, very VERY hot inside, and pretty basic food.
Lunch date in a little while. Can’t seem to stay home and, you guessed it, there’s an assignment waiting for the editing part. I wonder if these two things are related? 🤔
We went to a different supermarket yesterday, and tinyMovieStar quickly found her way to the usual spot on the cart.
Before that she tried the moving walkway for the first time, and it definitely wasn’t love at first sight!
From this day forward I’ll make an effort to always add Alt Text to the photos on my posts.
Ulysses even makes it super simple, I just have to add a caption to the photos, and those will render as Alt Text when it’s published. Easy.
The video is informative, and funny. Killer combination. Check it out: Accessible Microblogging: A Crash Course
Will this work, @sod? Using Ulysses as usual, it would be brilliant if it did…
There, and Back
Left early in the morning, with my parents, drove four hours north, attended a funeral, went to Spain for gas, had lunch with family, drove four hours south.
That’s about it. A day went by.
Up since 4AM. Getting ready for the drive up north.
Long drive, and pretty cold up there. It’s not going to be nice, but we’ve had plenty of nice days lately, so there’s that.
A little sad that I won’t be taking part of this May’s Micro.blog photo challenge, but I knew from the start I wouldn’t be able to keep up…
Will happily follow along as my fellow microbloggers post their wonderful photos 🙂
Sunday, Back Home
After the wedding extravaganza, we made it back home today.
Not before working this morning and afternoon. A visit to a winery so, at least, a painless one.
Tomorrow I’m driving my parents to a funeral, WAY up in the north, and too early in the morning.
What. A. Day!
tinyMovieStar surprised us all, and danced like a crazy person until well past one. 1AM!
With her own bodyguard detail!
First wedding for her: 10/10!
Petal duty, and a drive to the winery to pick up a few bottles. That’s it for the wedding day morning.
Wedding day tomorrow and, as usual, I’m not looking forward to it. Happy those two are finally doing it, but I’m not a fan of the actual wedding parties. On top of that it’s the first one with tinyMovieStar, so we’re on duty the whole time, and no drinking whatsoever.
