Space Bar


This is not just a shiny spot on my space bar...it is an actual dent/worn spot. I had thought it was just a worn spot, but happened to catch it in just the right light and seen it is an actual spot that is worn down. Does that mean the keypad is cheap or does it mean I use this keyboard a lot...I dare say it is the last option. (sorry it is so grainy...and not the best quality...the dent did not show with a flash and had the ISO at 1600, and the shutter speed real slow)
***********
It was another beautiful day...I just got our heat bill. It gives the average daily temp or the month plus it gives it for this month last year. Our average this year is 37ºF....last year it was 24ºF. Quite a difference I think for this time of year. If I was not too lazy I would go back and see how long it has been since we had temps like this.

I had books to return to the library...I did not want to check any out so just ran them in. (Kindles are wonderful--I never thought I would live to see the day when I didn't want to go to the library, but I don't now.) Anyway, we left there and decided to drop by some family, but they were not home. So we ran to Green Valley and even threw our fishing line in a few times. No hits, though. But so nice to be able to do that.

It is supposed to change drastically Thursday....and supposed to have some snow. I don't know if they expect some accumulation or not. With the weather we have been having, it is hard to imagine any snow at all.

I think most people are having a mild winter this year. Quite scary really isn't it.

Especially this winter, I am enjoying the kindle and not having to drive to the library.

We had a very mild day today also.

I enjoy my Kindle too. The last time I went to the library was to get a code to use the Kindle to check out library books.

We've been having some beautiful weather as well, but that is normal for Tucson this time of year. Still, it froze night before last. I went out to cover the broccoli plants and found some broccoli!!!! I LOVE being able to garden here almost year-round!

All these pictures-the teepees on ice, the sky, the bridge; wonderful!!!! I had meant to tell you how I love that covered bridge picture on your other blog, the one looking through it. Your posts here take me from one delight to another!

That is too funny, I'm going to check my key board when I get back home.

Yes--the weather has been strange this year for sure. We haven't had much winter yet at all. They do say that we may get some flurries on Thursday. Who knows????

The weather is definitely different from last year....Wonder what Feb. will bring us????
Hugs,
Betsy

this made me laugh, the photo and you thinking of doing it. just like what i would do. i wear out keyboards, i think i type to hard. the L and a couple of other letters are gone, hubby can't type without two finger poking and has to see the letters, so i put sticky letters on the ones worn off and they keep coming off.

It's a telling shot of your space bar. My embossed letters are wearing off. I think the industry is trying to move away from keyboards, but I still like to type.

Mary said...

Know what frustrates me? About half of the letters are worn off of my black keyboard. Good thing I touch type, but it is still a struggle at times! They never used to wear off the beige keyboards. Why on earth don't they emboss/embed? the letters so they are permanent????

Sure is nice to have a Kindle or Nook when the weather is bad!
