I've been at home now for two days, practising to be retired. So far it's lovely!
Heading out in two more sleeps for my default destination in the hot-spring zone of the neighbouring province...bearing all manner of groceries and holiday gear including a brand-new digital camera.
This is a breakthrough, folks, I started with a Baby Brownie, took 8-exposure 127 daylight film, and had no power assist of any kind... and lasted me nearly 30 years. Near the end of that time it filled in a photographic gap and actually took COLOUR pictures of Big Ol' Mountain...and the 127 had such big negatives that great, great prints resulted.
Won't be quite the same thrill with the new baby Nikon I am sure!
home to clean out the car and the coolers and get the ice packs frozen.
Y'all behave, now.
