Hi everyone, sorry I've been a bit out of touch lately.  Life happens sometimes.  Archer, hope you're recovering well from that surgery. I did get my new camera, and am happily pursuing photography at the moment, including starting an online class.  I got some pictures of the Texas bluebonnets last weekend, but they're still in the camera at the moment.  I'll try to post some soon.

    Yeah...what Winter said!

    The Elfmobile rocks my world. There's nothing like pulling up to a drive-thru in another state and having the attendant call over her shoulder: 'Hey, Liza! Here's those books you like!'

    kcrady -- so how do you like the K-X?   Found a good case for it.  I'm searching out a good sling pack for it -- want to find the smallest one I can that'll still pack it with the 300 mounted and the 55 packed with it -- would like to be able to possibly pack a few more things also (batteries, charger, cables, small notebook, etc). 

    Looking at a Tenba Shootout in the small size or one of the smaller Tamrac Velocity bags.   May look at a Kata too.

    Most of the slings I'm finding are bigger than I'd like.

    Hey Archer -- got exercises your supposed to be doing?   ;)

    Tip10, so far I love it!  Haven't had a lot of opportunity to get out and shoot, courtesy of my schedule and Texas weather.  I'm still learning the controls on the camera - and signed up for an online photography course that looks like it covers all the basics and then some.

    Oh - I broke down and purchased a refurbished Pentax ME Super on eBay, I'm thinking about loading it up with some B&W film to carry along when I go out shooting.

    Been busy here too.  Training Blizzard is going fairly well.  He runs up and sits 95% of the time, is walking well on a leash, and we are working on down.  We will be starting an official class in a few weeks where we will get some help.  They don't use a clicker (but don't mind if you bring one to use) but use a key word instead.

    Normal is what is the norm.

    Therefore I AM NORMAL!

    DH got shingles less than a week before we were going on vacation two years ago. He was put on Vicodin for the pain (and meds to help reduce the severity and duration of shingles). He remembers very little of that vacation but he did have a good time. ;D He slept a lot. He also could not remember the name of the name of the medication; he called it 'Viking Dan'.  By the end of the week he was working on stretching out the time between doses.

    Edit to correct typing.

    Ah, YES! The Mighty Viking Dan!

    There was a Mighty Viking and his name was Dan,
    He can slay your woes like nobody can!
    Whether you've got shingles or an ingrown hair,
    He'll work his mighty magic and you just--won't--care!

    Got broken toe? Or a snarly el-bow?
    Well, lift your flagons with a Yo-ho-ho!
    We don't need to worry...we'll have the upper hand,
    'Cause pain runs like water from that Viking named DAN!   :D

    Morning, poster-friends.

    I'm just getting caught up from vacation...you've all been busy!  We went to DC for 5 days and decided yesterday to go ahead and drive thru to get home without having to stay another night at a hotel.  Pulled in at 1:30am and then I wake up at 7:30am???  What's up with that?  ::)  Oh, well, everyone else is sleeping so I'm going to have a cup of coffee and finish Ravenshade since I only have the last 4 chapters left.  ;D

    Is it possible to disturb in those last four??

    You could have set off bombs, lit the house afire, flooded the basement, just about anything and you'd have not gotten my attention.  About the only way you'd have gotten it would be to take my Kindle and, rest assured, you'd not have survived long on this earth had ye tried.

    I suspect we'll not see Brew till he's done.

    How's the elbow this fine morning Archer?

    Good afternoon Winter -- be what about 3 PM there?

    Oh, my! Very sad news today...if any of you knew 'Anju' (real name Dona), she passed away suddenly yesterday! There's a thread in the 'not quite Kindle' topics devoted to her. Many, many sad Kindleboarders this day.  :'(
