We never did get a new camera as we had planned. Principally because our current one we currently have has been (mostly) trouble free all summer. It’s still finicky and definitely needs replacement. But we haven’t had the sort of problems that would bring it to the top of the list of items to be replaced and retired. It would be nice to have one with a remote control. Then I wouldn’t have to jump up out of bed so abruptly after a photo session.
As you can see from the picture, we have gotten some sun this week, especially me. Hopefully that is a trend that will continue. Thunder chased us out of the pool this afternoon; but today was still one of those rare days that we were able to both row and get in the pool. We hope you are enjoying a great four-day (or more) holiday weekend.
As you can see, The Wife is just starting to get a tan. We’ve had several days of sunny weather recently. Its only been a few days but it seems that summer may finally be here. That would be very good fortune as our annual summer vacation (for Independence Day) is next week. The extended forecast looks promising; but we’ve been disappointed many times this year. For now, we still have high hopes.
After a week, I was finally able to get back on the water for a quick row. With Hurricane F. forecast to make landfall soon I shouldn’t complain. High water around here is never anything like the aftermath of something like that. Be safe if you are in or near the danger zone. And, wherever you are, have a great weekend.
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 another candid photograph of the wife relaxing on the bed. We have had a lot of sun in recent weeks so she has much more of a tan than in similar pictures from earlier in the year. May had been a good month to get out an enjoy the sunshine. We will be doing even more of that in the future. Like most spring days, there is a chance of thunderstorms this weekend. But; there will be some sun too. Have a great weekend.
I just upgraded all of our PCs to the latest version of Windows. Our primary computer took a long time; but everything seems to be working. (Except for one unusual error message.) Of course, I see that an update to … Continue reading
I seem to have misplaced our”good” camera battery after I took it off the charger. I don’t misplace things that often, and I am usually pretty good at finding things when I do. But I didn’t realize it was missing until I noticed that the battery compartment was empty when I was reinserting the memory card and there wasn’t a lot of time to look for it. So, I did not get to work as much on videos this week as I planned since the camera battery died. Hopefully I’ll find it quickly. Meanwhile, I still have a few videos of our “preparations”.
