Never again

Picture of the Moment

It’s rare that people are in my pictures but sometimes it just can’t be helped.

    Hi Russel,
    I’m making another attempt on commenting, this time using my smartphone, just to find out if it works. I can neither comment on nor like your post on a regular computer. Let’s see if this here works.
    Have a great Sunday,
    Pit

        It’s probably your browser on the computer. One of the problems with WordPress is that anyone can contribute to it since it’s open source. Unfortunately, that means that when someone using Firefox contributes, there often are bugs with Chrome, IE, etc. When someone using IE contributes, goodbye Firefox, Chrome, etc. Sometimes, though, even Microsoft messes up when they upgrade IE, as they did with IE 9. It didn’t work with anything and they quickly moved to IE 10. So what browser is on the home computer? I might already know the problem.

      It’s a poem:

      “The Ballad of P.B.

      Pelican Brown was in search of a home
      where he could have fun and relax.
      He looked for a beach that was pretty
      and a sea that was swimming with snacks.

      He flew up and down the long coastline
      looking both far and quite near.
      Then one day he knew he had found it
      when his eyes saw the great Crystal Pier.

      On the end was a big crystal ballroom
      dancers came from all over the west
      and since Pelican Brown loved to tango
      he dressed up in his best velvet vest.

      He fit right in with the others
      tangoed many a night until dawn.
      Pelican Brown loved the beat of the music
      and danced until the others were gone.

      Then he’d fly out and find him some breakfast
      the happiest bird all around
      and everyone loved when they looked up
      and caught sight of Pelican Brown.

      The dancing bird soon became famous
      people came from all over to see
      the great crystal ballroom and dance hall
      and the pelican known as P.B.
