In 1903 Grandpa was a school teacher and entered into his diary “Too lazy to write from 11 to 19”
So lets go to May 11 and see what he did — bet U can guess: “Warm. Hauled props. Put post in.”
That is boring so let go to April 11: “Rained all day. Worked at yard fence. spread a little lime and loaded a load of props”
How ’bout March 11 “Cloudy and very foggy in forenoon. Clear after night. Worked at fences after school”
Hope you are able to form a mental photo of 1903 in the hills of Pennsylvania. Not a lot of change it seems.
What do you think Grandpa would think of the modern technology that allowed my friends to travel from the U.S. to Finland to Moscow and return — all in 10 days — and send messages via satellite — even send that photograph — is that change or what?
I am on the subject of change due to it’s relationship to horse training. Not really training — just getting the horse to “change” from what it would being doing at any given moment to to what I want it to do at that given moment.
Today I want to show you 1 more change technology has brought to our lives — well if you are young it is not change for you — but 4 me it is a change — different then that thing hanging on the wall that U cranked to talk to someone!
This is the new digital times — Called HDR — High-Dynamic Range — built into all (almost) phone cameras, and point and shoot camerea and very expensive professional camers. We old folks must change to get with it –must change to get with it — and I truly do love it .
HDR will not let U capture, in photo, the dreary morning feeling. So b sure 2 turn HDR off if you want to capture the feeling!
I am sure U 2 will love all this digital change — start by using shorthand. And do not b fooled by what U c –the dog photo I showed 2 days ago had a leash attached 2 it’s collar — there were other changes that I will not tell U about — she might. Just keep on 😀 ‘ing or 🙂 ‘ing not 🙁 ‘ing
