Monday 13 — Bewitched, Bothered and Bemildred

It had to happen; Friday the 13th has fallen on a Monday. Monday already stands alone as being the lousiest day of the week and making it fall on the 13th is in very poor taste; if I were a Friday, I would call a wildcat strike.

Sammy and Mason spent Mother’s Day afternoon with Chris and Carolyn; the way Mason is going I think he will be talking before Sammy does. Two chatter boxes going at once and both demanding attention at the same time. I am blessed.

I want a new DSLR camera; I damn sure don’t need one because I don’t use the one I have which still works fine. The K200D has only 6.5 thousand shutter clicks on it. I cannot see a new one improving my photographic skills; for me it is like a hack writer wanting a new typewriter so he can turn out better stories. I am longing for a Pentax K5 IIS but the more than one-thousand dollar price tag is way out of my range. Any new major purchases will depend on how surgery goes and the kind of shape I’m in afterward.

  1. I still think of your surgery. It will change a lot in your life but you must be patient my friend and well prepared to this undertaking. Does he speak? Mason? That’s great!!! I would like to listen to him. It’s funny that you named the boys “two chatter boxes”. Yes, you’re blessed!
    Actually, I don’t use my DSLR camera too. Winter was so long and hard for me. But I hope it changes soon (my vacation leave in July).
    And now … I have also my new camera … in my new smart-phone HTC. I will use it too. 🙂

    • I have been almost inactive for so long that it will take a lot of rehab and conditioning to be mobile again. Knee replacement surgery takes a long time for recovery eve when I am in good shape.
      No, Mason just chatters; Sammy is saying several words but no sentences yet.
      I’ve been watching to see if you posted any photos from your new phone on FB and Flickr. Have fun. 🙂
      Thanks, Jola. 🙂

  2. I’d love a new camera but it will have to wait. Jola you will like the camera. HTC has very good cameras in their phones. I have an HTC myself.

    Little kids are a joy. It’s when they grow older there is a problem. 🙂

    • I am getting too old to wait; I gotta make the best of my next 40 years.
      If you had not bought the Droid X, I would have probably bought an HTC. You are a bad influence on me. 😉
      Kids are good until they are about eight years old.
      Thanks, Mark.

      • I like being a bad influence.

    • Mark, I love everything in my HTC phone; not only the camera; really everything. It was a good purchase. 🙂
