In my backyard, I feed 3 rabbits, an Eastern chipmunk, a doe and a couple of fawns, lots of birds and a half dozen or so squirrels. Jane Doe and her fawn showed up about a year ago and showed up regularly until just recently. After a few months she appeared with 2 fawns. If a doe with and fawn dies, one of the others does with a fawn 'adopts' the motherless fawn. One deer eats (sticks it tongue into) from my birdfeeder occasionally. The little red-headed bird pivots 90ยบ to peck at the Blue Jays' peanuts. It is very humorous.

I probably did some wacky things also, but here's a wacky thing I prevented. Back in the late 30s and early 40s we had two interurban trains, one running from Cedar Rapids to Iowa City and one running from Cedar Rapids to Waterloo. One of my friends got the idea we could lay a penny on the track and after the train ran over it, we would have a nice little copper medal with Lincoln's image on it. Several of us made these medals. However, one of the neighborhood boys got the idea he could place a railroad spike on the track and make a nice knife blade. Since a railroad spike is much stronger and is much thicker than a penny, I thought that was not a good idea; maybe it would derail the train. I tried to stop him, but he was a few years older than I and much tougher. I rounded up about three friends who agreed with me and we removed the spike and prevented him from replacing it. We kept the spike and told him if we heard that the train was derailed in the future we would report him to the police. Maybe that would have worked on a track for a big steam locomotive.

A couple of weeks ago I received an email from Amazon telling me that I have successfully changed my ID and password. What? I didn't change my ID and password! I tried logging on. No account. I couldn't find any phone numbers or addresses for Amazon; Help references just led to endless, useless FAQs. Since my account had my credit card information, I immediately called my credit card company who advised me that I would not be responsible for any fraudulent charges, and they gave me a number to call at Amazon. I called Amazon, and they answered on the first ring (must be a hotline!). I told them my story. They opened the fraudulent account and found that only my name, address, etc were listed; no new purchases. Also, no response to my inquiry about how the ID got changed to a female-name.RU (RU is the URL for Russia). I used to get to Amazon by just typing Amaz and the rest was filled in automatically and my Amazon screen appeared saying, "Hi, John". Now I have to type my ID and password to log in. The Russian got in much easier than I now do.

In 87 years I have had many hospital episodes, some serious and all with some humor. Instead of showing my scars and bitching about the 'service', I liked to tell about the humor I experienced to forget the not so humorous.
This episode occurred a few years ago when I fell, got knocked unconscious, and was taken to a hospital. This was the 2nd time in a few month's time. As before, they examined me and transferred me to another hospital 'for observation". At the final destination, they parked me in a hallway for about 18 hours. [Funny part is below.]
After 18 hours, with only 6 ounces of ginger ale and a small breakfast, I was given release papers after convincing 2 dissenting out of 10 examining doctors to release me.
The funny part occurred about an hour after the ginger ale. I noticed that a couple of other people parked in the corridor got up and walked to the toilets. I decided to go also. A nurse, viewing me through their glass-enclosed sanctuary, ran up to me and said she would help me walk to the toilet. I told her I was OK, but she insisted. I knew I couldn't spend time arguing, so I let her walk me to the door. She walked me up to the urinal. I thought she was going to leave now and I started to reach into my pants. Instead, she whips out a bottle, looks me in the eye, and says, "Do you want me to hold it?" I said, "No, I'll hold it. You can hold the bottle."

I am 87 years old and starting reading when I was 4. I am still an avid reader and have over 1500 books in my home library. I have given away about that many also and lost several hundred books that were in a basement that flooded after one of my moves. A few years ago I started downloading FREE out-of-copyright ebooks from <gutenberg.org> which books include many ancient Greek and Roman translations and writings of the "Founding Fathers" of the Constitutional Republic of the United States of America. In the last few years these books could be downloaded in Kindle format at well as eBook, PDF and others. When I first read a downloaded Gutenberg in Kindle format I also discovered that ALL of my previous Kindle books were available on my laptop, a nice convenience.

I have just come into possession of a box of about 2000 family BW sheet film, 35mm and various other strip negatives which were taken by my father who was a portrait photographer at a studio. The dates they were taken were between 1935 and 1960, but some may be older. The larger sheet film is thicker and curled slightly on the edges which makes them difficult to scan. The smaller, thinner sheet film is flat, and so are the roll film. I did my own darkroom processing earlier, and have given away all of my equipment, etc. I don't want to try to print these myself. I would like some advice on how and where to get these printed and/or digital images of these on my computer, as negatives or positives. Currently I only have inexpensive Epson and Canon scanner/printers myself which satisfy me for printing and scanning photos - they will not scan the negatives satisfactorily. Thanks in advance for your advice.

Those were very interesting and artful interpretations. I would like to try that. How did you do it?

Deer are often seen in my backyard seeking something to eat, but this one decided to try the birdseed. I ran to get my camera to capture its tongue in the feeder. Since they are generally skittish, I only had time for a quick snapshot through a window, and the deer spied me and took off. I have some funny videos of the squirrels trying to unsuccessfully climb up the "Slinky" protected post, but I don't know if I can post those.

That was hilarious! Thanks. I did some things like that in the 1950s, but it was literally cut and paste and rephotographing.

1 Rabbit He was going to the river; He saw the elephants, but nothing was said about them going to the river.
3 Monkeys were going to the river, witnessed by at least 9 elephants.
6 Tortoises If they are considered animals, each monkey carried 2 tortoises.
P.S. If you do not know the answer, how can you delete the wrong answers?
