Birthday Boy!!!!!

He says he can have what he fancies for breakfast at his age!!!!!!
It is diabetic choc biscuit
This card suits Embee as he is not a computer expert! He found it funny and had a good laugh
A very apt card from Beccy as she gave him the Sat Nav holder.

Happy Birthday Embee

Saved by Sam

I have the best daughters in the world. As soon as Sam heard my camera was busted she sent me their old (her words) Cannon Powershot SD200. It arrived by Fedex this morning. Just to try it out, I quickly charged the battery and sneaked a picture of my mum relaxing and reading the paper.
All I have to do now is learn how to use all the settings. This is a 3.2 mega pixels my old one was 8.1 does that mean I won't get such a sharp picture-you can see I know nothing about cameras!
Thank you Sam and Fred xxxxx

Thursday's Thought

(if you want a better view click to enlarge)
I wasn't quite quick enough to get a good shot of this splendid old Bentley car as it was being towed away a few days ago.
My thought at the time was; wouldn't it be nice to take a ride but then it wouldn't do many miles to the gallon! Also hope whatever the problem was that it can be repaired. Guess I'll be on the look out to see if it's back in the neighbourhood!

Camera demise

Every year they hold a Balloon Fiesta in Bristol and this, it's 33rd year, it runs between the 11-14th Aug. So in the days leading up to the fiesta we often see balloons in the sky. Yesterday evening we had one flying fairly close to our house. I took the picture from my dining room window.

This might well be the very last photo taken from my little point and shoot camera! It has been ailing for a few weeks and today it won't turn on.

This camera has served me well for the past few years: (I got it when I last went to the US in 2007). Since then it has travelled to quite a few countries, furthest being China, and taken thousands of pictures and quite a few videos. Although I'm keeping my fingers crossed (the local camera shop wanted to charge £50 + to try and mend it and I didn't think it was worth it) I think I should really be saying RIP little camera.
I now need to think about a replacement....already I'm missing it as today there have been things I wanted to photograph! (sigh)

Fun Monday

Sad to say I don't even know if Fun Monday is still running. However, today, decided I would create my own bit of fun.

So calling all grandmas you need a pair of these!
If anyone has their own little bit of fun how about sharing it to brighten up this Monday. You have a blank canvass so anything goes!
