New camera

I was standing on my deck, right by my front door.  These two guys are down at the next trailer down the lane.  I am not sure what they are doing, but it looks like they are trying, unsuccessfully, to steal a car.  If it ever starts, the neighbors are sitting on the porch, waiting to call 911...

Happy Birthday, Hannah.  Birthday was December 2, last Sunday, but we had our celebration today.

December 7, Friday

Went and picked up the grandkids.  Will have a bday party for Hannah tomorrow.

I took some pictures, just to see how good the zoom was.

a bird on the wire.  I could only see a black form, could not even tell it was a blue bird.  Click to enlarge and you can see the twists on the electrical wire.

This goat was way over on the crest the other side of Clayton's next to Dan Norton's pasture, where we see a lot of the deer.

Got to go.  P:romiced grandgirl we would put up the xmas tree tonight.  She may be disapointed.  It is only about 18 inches tall.

December 6, New Day

New post, New camera...

The picture is not of the new camera because I took the picture with the new camera.  And, if you look closely, you can see the little camera I had before I bought the big gun last year right at the right edge of the computer.  This makes 3 Canon cameras I have bought since I fell down and broke the SX20 about 3 years ago.  This one is an SX50.

This is an image of the SX50 I found on the web.

The reason I wanted this was because of the 50X Zoom.  The camera I have is a much better and more powerful camera than this new one, but it would cost thousands as in more than 2 with three zeros to buy a zoom lens for my Canon 60D that would do half as much as this new one.

I got it at wally world in BRV with a comp ad from Target.  I think it was a pretty good deal, $80 off full price.  After Xmas it will be back to full price until next Xmas because it just came out this fall.  I wanted to get it a Wmart, because if I don't like it I can take it back and get my money back.  Lots of places will let you return something for certain reasons, but wmart will let you return things because you decided you don't want them after all even though there is nothing wrong with the item.

Well, got to go to bed now.  Have to work tomorrow to pay for all these big guns.

Tuesday, December 4

Yesterday afternoon, we had visitors.  We served them fresh rose bush and they went away happy.
