There were a lot of walkers at the Turkey run we did this past week. I don’t understand why they don’t start toward the back as instructed in the race information. Instead, they start at the front and slow all the runners down. The race was crowded so it took us over a mile to pass them all. If I was walking, I wouldn’t want to have runner after runner streaming by me for such a long time. Especially if I was trying to walk with someone.
We were thinking earlier today that our digital camera is over 8 years old. Even though it is very finicky, its amazing that it still works at all. We’ve reached the point where we are (pleasantly) surprised if it operatels normally for the entire photo session. Which, of course means, that it’s long past time to get a new one. We will certainly be checking the online sales on Friday. Anyway, here is a short video we made to make sure it can still record movies semi-reliably.
We did not have a lot of options so today’s photo is similar to one we posted recently. We would certainly like a camera that works reliably all the time. But, if that’s the worst thing that happens, everything is good. There always seems to be something else to buy. Even though it is brand new, I just ordered a new bin for door of the refrigerator. And we still need another glass shelf for the freezer that is much more expensive than we were expecting. It seems like there is always something we need. Anyway, have a great long weekend. We’ll se you on the other side.
Here is a picture showing how much sun The Wife has gotten this summer and especially this past weekend. It’s either been cool and rainy or hot and sunny with no in between. Unlike past Augusts I’ve mostly needed to cut the grass every weekend. The rain is good for the yard. Even if it is somewhat unusual. (I will not be cutting the grass twice a week like my next-door neighbor.)
This weekend looks like a good one to get in the swimming pool. Unfortunately, our pool heater will not ignite. With any luck, the water will be warm enough that it won’t matter. We’re going to get it fixed since there is not any point in having a pool that you can’t use. But, we’ve had certainly enough broken things already this year. Hopefully we will be lucky and it will be something minor and we can. We’ve definitely had more than our share of bad luck recently. Have a great weekend. Maybe our next post will be about relaxing in the pool.
Our air conditioning is broken again so we do not have the best photographs this week since we had to leave the windows open even though it was after sunset which and our camera is not the best at nighttime exposures with potion. We don’t know yet when we will be able to have the new one installed. It appears we’re going to have a hot Independence Day vacation.
Today’s video is in the category of ” it’s good to know how to do things even if you don’t have a reason”. I don’t often rotate videos during transcoding; but needed to for this one. It’s a mystery why the camera saves videos in the wrong orientation whenever its rotated. But, its good to know how to fix it.
As you can see, The Wife has is starting to get a tan since we’re really been getting outside and enjoying the sun. Hopefully, there will be plenty of sunshine on Saturday and Sunday for us to bike and row in.
Have a great weekend.
Here is a candid photograph of The Wife making up the new bed after our photo session was over. We’re not posting it for any particular reason. It just seemed like a fun picture. Life is good now that the days aren’t so cold, wet and dreary. We really enjoy the sunshine. Even when we aren’t outside doing things. The days are long, the sun is warm. And summer is finally here.
