Extra Post Today

February 27, 2012

Tootsie and I had a bit of breakfast, and went out for a while this morning.  First we put gas in the car, and then we visited a local flea market to see what we could find.   I found some great "Find A Word" puzzle books, some post cards and a nice birthday gift for my son in law, Mac. 

I finally got to upload some photos here.  This first one  was taken at home, and shows my little girl keeping a close eye on me while I pack the suitcase.  

And this next photo shows her this morning.  She was wasn't feeling so good, and the long day of traveling had simply wiped her out.   I think the pillow helps to make her tummy a bit more comfortable.  We have marble tile floors here at the condo, and she likes to sprawl out on them because they are so cool.

The maintenance guys were just here to fix the ice maker in the freezer.  I tried all last night and today to make some ice, but it just wasn't working.   Maintenance will come back later to make sure it is still making ice. 

The housekeeping lady also came by with extra pillows and a table lamp, and while she was here she showed me how to connect to the internet here inside my unit.   Management had the area by the pool wired for internet access, but I don't want to have to sit over there to use it.  Especially if it's not nice out.  So now I can sit out on my screened in porch while I play on the internet.   

I did my post this morning with my Broadband2Go stick.  It will still come in handy if we go somewhere and need access to the internet.   How lucky can I get?  Before, I had no internet, and now I have two!!

When Tootsie and I were on our way back here this morning, I saw lots of large birds in the sky.  I'm assuming they were turkey vultures.  If we don't see any here by tomorrow, I think we'll take the camera and go for another ride.  I'm itching to get some new bird photos.

I have another photo to share with you that my friend Mary Ann sent to me.  She's vacationing in Arizona, and having a grand time playing with her new lens.   Mary Ann, great job on the photo!!  You'll have to teach me how you got the motion to stop for the camera.  It's fabulous!! 

Folks, I hate to say this, but it's hot here.  Hot!  Hot!  Hot!  There are both gray and white clouds in the sky, and the temps are up in the 80's.  It's like summer.   I just saw a dragonfly go by, so I think I'll have to grab my camera and take a walk.  Plus the office just called me to say that my "mail away" box has just arrived. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Great photos, including Mary Anne's rodeo shot. I was wondering where you were for a minute there.

Hi Edna, I just set my camera on action automatic and used my 200mm lens. I took 274 photos but only felt about 4 were the best. That's what I love about digital cameras you don't have to print them all to see what is great. Gene and I went to see an Ansel Adams exhibit at the U of Arizona yesterday. WOW! What he did with what he had to work with. Enjoy Florida.
