An Awesome New Toy

February 4, 2018

Good morning.  Tis a bit gray outside, but the sun may still come out later on.  The temperature is around 37F degrees, headed for the low 40's.  We are also expecting some rain today.  That's okay, Pogo and I aren't going anywhere. 

I've been feeling like crap lately, and I'm hoping that it's not pneumonia again.  Tomorrow morning, I'm going to call my doctor to see if he will prescribe some medicine.  Last night, I looked up the symptoms for pneumococcal pneumonia, and I have all the symptoms but one.  This made me really nervous.  Especially because my breathing hasn't been so good lately.

Aye yi yi.  I just don't need anymore of this.  Did you ever reach a point where you get sick of being sick?  Well, I'm there.  I think my friend Beth knows the feeling.  It seems like every time she turns around, there's another medical problem to deal with.  I wonder, when is enough enough?

Okay, so that's my little rant for today.  I do have better news to share.  A week or so ago, I ordered a new lens for my Canon.  It's a Tamron 18-400mm Di II VC HLD.

It arrived a few days ago, and I took it out on the porch to try it out.  There was a truck with a plow on the front of it in the driveway across the street.  I first took a photo without any zoom, then I took a photo with the 400 zoom. 

Needless to say, I think I'm going to enjoy this lens very much.  Now I can't wait to go to the park and take photos.  Here's a cute photo I took of Pogo while I was playing with the new lens.  I'm not sure what he was looking at, but I loved the look on his face.

I think I've been up long enough for a while, so let me post a new quick page before I go.  This one is for all the February birthdays.  Your birthstone is purple Amethyst.  Enjoy.

Here is your download link:

Now I'm going to get a nice cold bottle of juice and do a bit of blog reading.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Hi Edna,
Oh my gosh, what a great new toy that you have. It really does zoom! I love the look on Pogo's face. He is such an adorable little guy. I love him to bits and am so happy when you share pictures of him.

Thank you for the QP. I don't have any February birthdays but I know that I will still find it perfect for something else. I love the colors. Amethyst is one of my favorite stones. Oh I better be honest here because you know me too well and know that all of the gems are my favorite. I don't think that I don't have a favorite lol.

Edna I am glad that your calling your doctor tomorrow. This is not good news and I would be very nervous too. Your right on the money when you say you get to the point that enough is enough. For me I am sick and tired of being sick and tired.

Have a wonderful rest and forgive me for calling and interrupting your eye balls from sleeping. I should have listened to my instinct and call you later on. I am sorry...

Love to you and Pogo always from Cisco and I... Hugs, Beth xoxoxoxo
