“My aunt that we are staying with while we are fixing the house just bought a camera and I’m completely jealous! All of the great house blogs use better cameras. If the blog is gonna ever go to the next level, then I MUST have a new camera. No seriously Dana, this had to happen.”….is what I plan to tell my wife. Haha, just kidding honey! But if you find $1500.00 in loose change in the sofa, here’s what I want.
Actually, wrong clip…it actually the Nikon D7000. Its a very humble camera, see:
Right now, work on the house is moving real slowly. Lots of small things, and medium-sized things, oh and large-sized things suddenly creeped up before sheetrock goes on. Oh well. Hopefully next week.
In the meantime, enjoy another pic of our impromptu photo session with my aunt’s super awesome new camera. I’m still jealous.
I can take these all day long with my new camera...hint.
For those that know me well, you know I have a love-hate relationship with cats. I just really never understood the value they bring to the table. For Pete’s sake, they are synonymous with the term, “finicky”. Humans have managed to train parrots to talk, elephants to bow, dolphins to molest you at water parks, but good luck asking a cat to put on a collar and walk with you down the street for some fresh air!!!
So as my luck goes, there are so many darn cats in my new neighborhood, that an entire non-profit needed to be established! They are called Thirteenth Street Cats, 13stcats.org. I did some quick math using the numbers they have supplied on their website and for the last 3 years, not counting 2011 so far, they have spayed/neutered over 1121 cats in this neighborhood. WHAT THE??? Is that even possible??? I have already had a surprise encounter with a cat in our detached garage that jumped out of a cabinet and shot past my leg in the dark, so I know they are out there…waiting….talking about me in their cat language. Plus, these felines are street-savvy, nothing like the smooth talking Morris!!!
So I just thought that I would bring this to everyone’s attention. And for those that know me well, enjoy the laugh at my expense. And for those that think I’m cat-bashing, all I have to say is my best friend is a cat. (pictured below)
