The Welcome

Until today I've never been in a Whole Foods grocery store.  Living in the Portland area that probably puts me in the minority.  Alex and I were out and about when I got the call from Kathi asking me to pick up some leeks while I was out.  Whole Foods was right down the road and I thought who better to have leeks than a place called Whole Foods.

We park and walk to the entrance when about ten feet from the entrance I felt something hard hit my head. I look up and around but see nothing and nobody but Alex.  Then I look at my shoulder which is covered in green grasslike clumps.  It was then I realized that I was pooped on.  I could then hear the geese flying above sqauking "welcome to Whole Foods sucker!"

We continued into the store and Alex asked what happened so I told him a bird crapped on me.  He of course laughed and a lady who overheard smiled at me and said "that's nature in all it's glory."  Yep, forty two and a half years living on God's green earth and nature finally hits its target.

Friday Night Excitement

Elizabeth Taylor as the shrew on TV.

Digital SLR Camera's being reviewed on the internet.

Fringe being recorded by the DVR.

Beer in the glass.

The dog is puking.

The kids are munching popcorn.

That's our Friday night at this moment. Kathi and the kids are watching Taming of the Shrew with Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. They recently studied Shakespeare so this is how Kathi is wrapping that study up. I'm half paying attention. My other half is reading about digital SLR's. I'm finally (with the help of a nice tax return) going to plunge back into my old hobby of photography with a new camera. It's been years and I've been patient.

The problem I have now is deciding which one to buy. At this moment I'm torn between the Nikon D300s and the D7000. I wish I could blend the two to make a single camera with the features of each that I like. I know Nikon will do it someday by putting out the D400, but like anything electronic these days the moment you buy it it is obsolete.

I hate being torn. I think tomorrow I may take a trip to the camera store and do a little touchy-feely and see what the salesmen say. For now I may turn my attention to the movie and Elizabeth Taylors enormous cleavage.

Blogging on the go

I know I don't post much anymore but it isn't because I don't have anything to say.  Sometimes time gets away from me.

Today I discovered that I can post from my phone. So here I sit by the river digesting my lunch and putting a post up.

I'd probably say more but typing on this keyboard is just not very efficient.  I just wanted to post because I can.

The Force

With my immense love for all thing Star Wars this commercial spoke to me. My inner geek is alive and well.
