ILLUMINATED ORCHID

By Tish1
Many apologies, I have been battling with worms, not personally, my computer. I hold quite a bit of confidential information so if something gets through my firewall I have to act fast. Fortunately I do ring fence important information, but you can't be too careful, so just to make sure I re-formatted my hard drive, and now I am re-building it, but at least I know it is clean. So if I haven't offered a comment on your uploads over this wet weekend it wasn't personal.

As part of my distraction I have been playing with my editing software and came up with this, I think I will upload the original so that you can offer advice in terms of what I have done and what I probably should have done or what I shouldn't have done.

Tomorrow [or should I say later today] I will be full of radioactive something or other so will again not be generally available, but if you see something glowing green in the night it is probably me.

Happy birthday Colleen for Friday, wont be around to make the wishes on the day, [we share the same birthday], sadly I will be travelling to South Wales on Wednesday spending my birthday attending the funeral of a lovely man and friend............. He had a good life, he was 90, a renowned singer with a multitude of awards, so we will be celebrating his life and his achievements.

I hope you enjoy my offering for today and many thanks to you all for taking the time to view my previous upload and your continued encouragement.

Tish

Morning Tish...so the radio active day has arrived...Good luck and will be thinking of you. So you are spending OUR birthday at a funeral. How sad but to celebrate someone living 90 years is sad but special. No idea what my birthday holds, hopefully a pleasant surprise.
Your orchids are beautiful and well captured. Good luck Tish and Happy birthday for Friday GrinGrin

Lovely orchid Tish - on my screen V2 looks quite dark so preferring V1.
Hope all goes well for you today - it doesn't sound too pleasant! At least you can look forward to Friday - a day of mixed emotions I guess. Smile

90 years is a good innings and it sounds as if your friend had a good life. I am sure he will be missed. Congrats on your birthday - we hope to be in the stix at the Natal North coast by then and I am not sure about the internet either. I trust that you will send us a nice photo of you glowing in the dark !! I am thinking of you !! I am also still battling with a very erratic heartbeat - sometimes normal and then missing a few again Smile have a great day in it all Smile
