Is It Too Much to Ask?

I’ve had an electronics free weekend. Not by choice, but does it matter? I still had to do without. Yep, that’s right, I’ve had virtually no contact with the outside world. My friends staged an intervention on me, so I could not use my phone or the Net for most of the weekend. Before you ask, yes! I had withdrawal. This pretty much sums up how I felt at first:


But I’ll be home later tonight and will definitely be able to post something salient to our guy. For now, I’m doing another quick post so you know I didn’t fall off the face of the earth. But I could have. My lodge room is up pretty high. About 9,000 ft elevation and probably 1,000 feet from the ground. This was about 6:45 this morning:

Hey, if I’m going to have electronics withdrawal, this is the way to do it!

note: the title was going to be a lead-in for the notion that it’s not too much to ask for just a few minutes of Internet time. As it is, I’m sneaking this. :D


  1. LOL The first pic was pretty funny, the second pic was pretty beautiful!

  2. And I didn’t even capture the beauty! I came to this place about 35 years ago, and it is even more beautiful than I remembered!

  3. Wow! It IS beautiful. Looking forward to hearing all about it.

  4. (2nd pic) . . . listen . . . . . . . .

  5. The view is beautiful. I could go offline with that to look at, maybe without the snow. As long as I didn’t have to give up books. We got about 15 inches or so last Monday.

  6. That first pic…explains all. Such shorthand we have in our fandom, eh? Don’t we just love ourselves?

  7. I know this is going to sound weird, but not my cuppa. At all. I’m glad you enjoyed it tho.

  8. Doesn’t sound weird at all. We are not all in lock step.

  9. Although I’m not sure if you’re referring to being in the mountains or having a time that’s electronics free or both. LOL!

  10. I meant being outdoors. Unless there are broken pots and dead folks under the dirt, I’m the epitome of the indoorsy geek.

  11. Wow, friends…so close to Heaven there. Looks like tons of powder! I hope you had your skis or snowshoes at the ready :) I find one needs a bit of solitude now and again. This world spins too quickly and sometimes one needs silence to hear one’s own voice. Be well, my friend.
