Campfire watchers – Sept 3, 2005

MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

Here are Shannon and Andy sitting by the campfire one evening during our memorable trip to Worlds End State Park in Pennsylvania. Great Art courtesy of my old Minolta camera (with its bad pixels not too obvious in this photo) and part of my famous Shannon and Camping series.

Yet another pretty decent day. I got to speak with several family members today, although I forgot to call Tony back. He called yesterday afternoon while my friend Gary was here and I promised to call him back today. I thought of it in the morning, but he would have been at work, so it seemed better to wait until the afternoon. At which time I forgot. Sorry, Tony! I’ll try again tomorrow.

Not much else to report today. I went to the Homeowners’ Association meeting tonight to meet some folks, thank them for their kindness to my family on behalf of Shannon, and listen to a nice lady from the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society speak about the Light the Night walk scheduled at the beginning of November. Really wonderful group of people. They hold the meetings in a conference room at our local Ford dealer, so while I was there, I ordered a license plate mounting bracket for the front of my beloved pickup. The old one was gone before I got the truck, and I’d like to have it. They had to order the part, so I expect to receive and install it on Friday.

My new Roku 3 arrived today. I got it installed and working in my bedroom and moved the old one to the office, as planned. Much better solutions in both places. Recommended, in spite of the fact that Amazon just introduced a new competitor today (or was that yesterday?). It seems like a nice unit with very impressive specs, but one review I read says it’s still quite rough and without much support from third parties. That will change with time, of course, but I can get a Roku that works perfectly today. So I did.

And that’s about it for today. As usual, I’m lonely and broken-hearted, and things are improving for me every day. Small steps, but improvements.

I’ll leave my Loyal Readers with this shocking food violence news: sword-brandishing taco heist!

See you tomorrow.
