Making Lots Of Progress

October 29, 2019

Good morning.  Tis gray outside and my phone app says it's raining.  Not so!  The app isn't showing any sunshine for today, just temps in the lower fifties.  It's a good day to be doing stuff indoors.

Yesterday, we dug out a few boxes of photos that I had stored away in the computer room.  I sat and looked a few of them.  I'll have to drag them all out one of these days and have me a good look at all of them.  I did pull out a few memories to share.

Many moons ago, between 1989 and 1991, the first digital cameras were being introduced to the public by Casio.  They were very expensive and they promised to be a source of wonderful fun.  When the first ones came on sale for only $2000, my hubby took me to the store and bought one for me.  Imagine that, all that money for such a small thing!  Here are photos of the brochure that came with the camera.

I know you can't read the print on that second image, but it gives an idea of how they were showing us ways to have lots of fun with our new camera.  And I DID have fun with it!  You could turn the view finder around so that folks did not know they were being photographed.  I took this camera everywhere with me.  This was the beginning of my adventures into photography and ways to enjoy it.  Our digital cameras have come a long way baby!

I also came across some photos that my girl friend and I took on one of our trips to Nashville, Tennessee for Fan Fair.  I had this photo taken there.  Us girls had loads of fun and got to meet lots of the country music stars. 

Do I love country music?  Oh yes!  I grew up with it.  My mother always had country music playing on the radio.  When we were tiny, she would even teach us to dance to it.  We would stand on her toes and hold her hands, and off we went.  Twirling and gliding to the music.  I did the same to my kids when they were tiny. 

Today, country music is still my favorite.  The old style country music, not the newer stuff.  I enjoy other kinds of music too, but country is my love.  I have a huge collection of it.  That, and the "oldies but goodies" from the forties to the seventies.

Today Audrey and I are going to re-organize my yarn stash.  This should be fun.  We're also going to fill up a big suitcase with some of the yarn for Audrey to take home with her.  This way she'll be all set to make lots of new things.

Well, that's our progress so far.  Now I'm off to get started on this new day.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Wow! Two thousand dollars for a digital camera! That is mind-blowing, isn't it? Amazing how far we've come. And the resolution on the pictures was probably really terrible!

I like older country music too. Give me Johnny Cash and Patsy Cline any day!

Not very chatty today. I has a crook in my neck from whatever reason I couldn't say.I am sleeping a lot because I have taken a muscle relaxer to try to get some relief on my neck. Don't overwork yourself....I hope you and Pogo have a beautiful and healthy day.

It is wonderful what you get to do with Audrey as helping hand.
I bet your computer room will look a lot better after the re-organizing!
Oh my, I hope that the medicin Deanne got, will scare away all kind of nasty effects of the infection by the tick.
So happy for you that you have Audrey around for a while now, it is nice to have company and it's good to read you and your girls had a great evening out at the cabaret!
The price for that digital camera is amazing, it was a lot of money! But new things always cost at first a lot and then by time they become less expensive. ou just have to be a little bit patient sometimes LOL.
Take care, dear friend and have lots of fun during the stay of Audrey!
Give her my greetings!
