Happy Birthday Angel !

We celebrated Angels Birthday with a breakfast at Ol Country Buffet.

                                                                   Angel Holding the door.

We stood in line for about 30 minutes, but it was truly worth it. The family enjoys going to this restaurant because of the choice of foods they can pick out.

                                                                         Savannah & Brooke enjoying ice cream.

Angel didn't want us to announce to everyone that it was her Birthday. Didn't want everyone singing the Birthday song. So after a little teasing, Tina handed Mom the birthday candles. Mom lit just one and Angel with the help of her daughter Brooke, made a wish and blew it out.

                                                                        Angel making her Birthday wish.

Everyone had a great time. With everyone's very active daily life we all left the Restaurant and went on our separate way.

Be safe, God Bless, and come back again.

New Nikon First Pictures

New Computer is on line, uploaded the few pictures from our new Nikon camera.

I like this one the best.

Of course I plan on getting much better. I had forgotten that these SLR cameras have many more buttons than the typical "point & shoot" cameras.
Saturday morning AT&T will be installing our New Internet and TV service. Hopefully all will go alright and we will be happy with the service.
I'll post again when it's done and I get some breathing time.
Almost forgot....Sunday is Angels Birthday! Happy 38th Birthday Angel!!!

Take care & God Bless....till next time.

New Computer

I have the new computer waiting to be installed, still in their boxes, in the spare bedroom.

As I am giving up the Lodge Secretary job, I will also be giving up their computer. Wayne, the new Secretary, has been getting instructions from me and doesn't feel he is quite ready to take the Lodges computer home. This is why my "New" computer is waiting to be installed. But by Thursday I am disconnecting the Lodges computer and connecting my new computer.

This is going to be a scary experience. Why you ask? Because all the other computers we have use Windows XP. The new computer will have Windows Vista.

So we, meaning Wilma and I are keeping our fingers crossed that the internet hook up will go fine and neither her nor myself will loose connection or our email configurations.

Then on Saturday AT&T is coming to install their "U-verse" system. We will be getting a new Wi-Fi router along with up to 4 TV tuners, one of which will have a DVR. So I will finally get a DVR! Can't wait. Along with getting cable for our bedroom & the basement TV's.

So as you see, this next week is going to be extra busy around here. Hopefully everything will go as planned with no hitches. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

I don't plan on writing again until after this coming up Saturday, the 23rd. Maybe I'll have a few pictures taken with the new Nikon camera also.

Like I say: It's feeling like Christmas in February with all that is going on around here.

Come back again, God bless and be safe.

New Camera Arrives

Oh boy Oh boy Oh boy!!!!

It's Christmas in February.

My gift: A Nikon D40x Digital SLR with 2 lenses. Man O Man!

Now comes the learning curve. Really it's not at all difficult to get great pictures from it. But to get "Creative" pictures, it takes a little adjusting. I can't wait to learn it.

Wilma just wants to know "how to take a picture". So she will be receiving the official "crash course".

Wish us luck, and when I get it figured out I'll post a picture or two.

Until then.....

God Bless and stay safe.
