"Isolation" or "Social Distancing" whatever you call it...has often been our style when traveling, paths least traveled always seem to rejuvenate us. But when it's not a choice, it sure gets old. Post a pic old or new, B&W seems appropriate!

ha! simply go to edit and drag your color option down! always save "a copy" or you'll lose the original.

On your phone there's an edit feature when you open the pic, click edit, scroll through options and slide the saturation level down or if saved on your computer you should have a basic edit/create feature. Always save a copy so the original remains unchanged.

Beerman,

I decided to do a then and now!
A place very special for my sweetie and me.

Salamanca Spain! I can say the Plaza Mayor has not aged
I sure have… My wife… not so much.

I have cured my quarantine blues by enrolling in a Spanish Wine Scholar course.
Even better... it is condensed from 14 weeks to 5 weeks
Not much free time in my house… 2 to 3 hours a homework a night, two lectures a week - BTW - without wine
I am ready to be bored... school is cutting into my consumption
Which by the way was getting pretty expensive.
I was buying wine for the next two weeks, three times a week.
Oh to be in Spain!

Hey Tom, nice pics! we are missing travel, but all's well considering. We're taking advantage of the Total Beverage curb side pick up!! I spend a lot of time isolated in my kitchen and put some hours on my overpriced mashed potato making machine!!!

Carol - Yes Great Memories!

The Plaza Mayor is just a symbol that important things don’t change when cared for, and that time will solve everything.

Completed in 1755 (Older than our nation) the plaza has survived the invasion of Napoleon, Civil War, the Spanish Flu in 1918, and 13 wild kids in 1972!
And it will now survive COVID-19.

So… we are stuck inside probably in our largest investment (or bill) with the people we love, and with time on our hands.

We will return to normal and maybe now appreciate the people, things, and places we love.

I going to learn more about wine… And Rick looks like he is tearing up the kitchen with his family…
(Oh yeah - my sweetie is retiring in two weeks)
Life is good! Just different.

Today’s Factoid - By the way the Spanish Flu was anything but Spanish. The Allied Press was censored and the story suppressed for morale purposes. Spain being neutral in WWI reported the news…
So the powers to be at the time asserted it was a Spanish problem. Where most now believe it started in UK, USA, France, and yes China is also a suspect also.
See somethings never change. cloud

Just stay the course and we'll be traveling before you know it! I'm not always in the kitchen, I've always had a love hate relationship with squirrels.....I decided to make a truce and build them some places to eat!!

Ah, love me some cardinals! I buy bird food that is supposed to be sort of cardinal specific and we do have quite a few here. Now, if we could keep those pesky squirrels away!!!
