Day 123

A cottage in the country

It is not really a cottage. It probably belongs to a well to do farmer, or someone well to do who owns farm land. The house sets well back from the road. I zoomed in as far as I could without losing a lot of detail.


We have some very good friends. Diana & Steve Bush came over today to open our pool. I haven’t been able to do it because of my foot problems, and they volunteered to do it out of the goodness of their hearts. Of course they chose the coldest day in the past month or so to work on it.


Cindy’s gift to me for our anniversary is a digital video camera. The instructions that came with it were on a sheet smaller than a standard 8 1/2 X 11 sheet of paper. I went online this morning and printed off a seventy-four page manual so I could figure out how to use this new toy. Maybe I can spend sometime this evening trying to set it up. One thing I do know is that I’ll be buying an SD card with larger memory than the card that came with the recorder. I did the same when I bought my Nikon digital camera, because they never supply a card that is large enough.

Based on what I’ve read in the manual so far, this new video camera is going to take me a while to master…if I ever do master it. I never was able to get the hang of the video camera Lee and Michelle gave us. Part of the trouble with that camera was that I would only get it out every 6 months or so. When I did try to use it I had forgotten everything that I had learned before. I was only able to get one reasonably good video with that camera. I tried using it again at Niagara Falls, and it turned out to be a disaster. I have higher hopes for this new video camera. I plan on using it on a regular basis so that I don’t forget how to use it.
