Notice anything different? No? Well, this is the first photo from the newest camera in the fleet of 3. The Olympus Stylus TOUGH. Thought that would be a great idea since it is supposed to be pretty bomb-proof. Now, the old camera was a great guy, unfortunately a little large and probably far more options that a non-camera buff like me needed to have in my hands, pack, purse, ... yah.
I haven't played with the features too much. Tough to do that with 1 good arm to work with... more on that in a moment. Next week is little E's last dance class. No more sitting at the center junking out on FB for me on Tuesday afternoon.
Speaking of E... here is a night shot G took at the 4th fireworks in FeeFee La'Key. Never heard of it? So many haven't, best kept secret in northern Michigan. ;) What ya don't see is the flame/sword juggler performing for the children. That was scary, cool, scary.. and I just couldn't believe the small town allowed that in such a crowded space? Yikes. Seriously. Maybe I'm just more protecting and more "Safety Patrol" when on the injured list?
Waiting for the parade of firetrucks, police cars, tractors... yep, best kept secret I tell ya! You will know my shots, I'm always in a sitting position... more on that... in a moment.
Some small child snatched the camera from my good arm and snapped some shots. Tootsie Rolls were definitely the theme of the day's parade.
My personal favorite. Not many turned out so .. jagged. Nice Glen. Nice.
Just love the color and streaks.
It's like hot lava in the sky!
Oh, hi there. 1 week ago I was sitting at G's in a slouchy-coma. Who knew he walked into the room and was fiddling with the camera? So, this is me on the first morning-AFTER my bike bucked me off. My shoulder popped out of it's socket when I hit the ground. Not happy about that. That walk, that wait, that x-ray tech! Holy cow... how many times did I have to tell them my pain was a 10+!? Seriously, worst pain of my life, but happy it didn't break. Happy I'm no longer in the Tylenol 3 coma of last week/weekend, and so happy I am sling-freeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee as of today! woo hoo! Also, so thankful for the good riding buddies who walked with me, let me say some fancy words without scoffing, laughed at the looks of my screwed up arm/shoulder.. good times.
Can I mention I'm a little happy I won't be playing softball again this summer? ;) Too bad I also have to wait for the trails... paved roads are coming up. I think I'll be ready next week. In the meantime, I'm counting my good fotune on a clover & so thankful for the healing capability of the human body. Amazing.
p.s. I also like washing my hair with 2 hands, snuggling The Willow, opening a container WHILE holding it at the SAME time!?, buttoning my clothes without working up a sweat, turning doorknobs, pulling on socks, ... just wait until I grab the steering wheel with both hands later today AND engaged the turn signal without having to completely let go of the wheel! Awesome!
