Morning Thoughts- Broken cameras and ankles
Another Wednesday market day. I am happy to be back home after my vacation. One of the best things about going away is coming back and seeing things through new eyes. New eyes. That is one reason I enjoy meeting people who are here for the first time. They point out to me the interesting things that I no longer see because I take them for granted.
The weather is perfect here now. The cold snap is gone. Now the days will be getting longer. I like the long days and short nights. Since I have been hanging around with Tammy, I am getting out at night. That makes life more interesting. There are a lot of things to do here at night. We often go to the plaza with our dogs, have coffee and watch all the action. I love being in the plaza at night. Chico and Tammy's dog, Kito, love it too.
I have now worn out my third camera. Someone asked me the other day, "How can you wear out a camera?" But it happens when the camera is being used everyday. For every photo I post, there are twenty that I don't post. This time the zoom lens stopped working. All I get is white whenever I try to zoom in on anything. I am bidding on another one through e bay this morning. I love the Canon Elphs because they take great pictures and they are small enough for me to carry around all the time.
Tomorrow I am going on the zoo trip with the LCS bus. No zoom photos of the animals. That will be disappointing for me. I have never done this trip. Last time I paid for it and a few days before going, I fell into the lake and broke my ankle. LCS does NOT refund your money, no matter what the excuse. I hope nothing happens between today and tomorrow morning so I can make it this time. I will post some of the photos but I doubt if they will be very interesting without the zoom.
