*At the opening reception (I won!!) the other day, John, this guy I hang with (only one under 65) at the meetings asked me if I had done any shooting lately. I told John that the award winning photos had been taken in early September. John went on to tell me that he had just taken two days off from work, packed up his gear and spent four full days (weekend included) camping and photographing in Vermont. That settles it! I want a wife!!
*I spent about 5 hours on the phone the past few days with some very nice young ladies in tech support from the place where I am trying to order some photo cards from. I had to say "I'm really sorry, I am incompetent with (any number of things)" about a million times, until I finally gave up what I was trying to do and did my cards the way I didn't exactly want them. In my dream world I can hire someone to do all the techie stuff for me. Maybe the wife can be a computer whiz too.
*And finally, I'll part with these thoughts:
How I know the holiday season is upon us:

3. Jacked up advertising aimed towards kids.
2. Holiday display up in local drug store.
and most of all:
1. St@rbucks changed to the red cups
