Cold! And The Gift...

Posted by Picasa
It's been very cold lately...too cold to go out and play with the wonderful present I received from my DH. My Other-Half gave me a wonderful camera! I have been drooling over a Nikon D40x for the longest time...even checking out multiple places online for any "deals" I could find that would fit into my budget. No such luck. Skunked every time. Bah, Humbug!

Then, on Christmas Day, said Wonderful Husband gave me presents such as a really nice camera bag that could be placed on a belt, keeping both hands free for using a camera...a second larger bag for keeping the camera, lens, filters, etc. I should have seen it coming, shouldn't I?

Then, there it was...the last box. By the time he placed the last present in my lap, I was heady with the scent of a favorite and very expensive perfume he had also given me...this last item was a bit heavier than the others. When I opened it, I couldn't believe my eyes! There was the camera...for one of the few times in my life, I was speechless. Dumbfounded. I can now take all sorts of photos including ones of the sheep in action as this camera has a very rapid recovery between shots. Being raised on 35mm cameras with a father who had a darkroom in many of the places we lived in spoiled me to digital cameras who took their own sweet time to recover after taking a shot, letting good shots get away while I was waiting for it to be ready to go again.

So, now I just need a day where I can get outside without dangerous wind chills to start using this Marvelous Toy.

Thank you, Honey...for believing in me as well as encouraging me. If I didn't say "Thank you" when I opened the box, it was because I had to wait for the tears to clear from my eyes and my voice to come back. You're wonderful!

Clearly, I was not sitting in a correct position, holding my tongue right, or biting my lip correctly through the process.
