Whatta house!

Hereford,  AZ

On Friday we again visited with my cousin Muriel.  It is a treat getting to know her better.  She occasionally lived about 10 miles from where I grew up.  However, her father worked on military installations as an ammo inspector and was relocated every two years.   They owned a house in NJ but the only times she lived there was when he was in Japan or Korea. I can remember her family living in SD, Ohio and Kentucky.   And as she is 4 years older, we never really "hung" together even when she lived locally.

Muriel lives in a church campground.  This is the view from her side yard.


The camp is an active children's camp during the summer but they hold other events throughout the year.

A covered wagon used as a buck house.

The amphitheater. 

Muriel "cat sits" by feeding cats for friends when they travel.    She took us with her as she fed the cats.  We never saw the cats but sure did check out the house!

The house sits mostly out by itself.   There is a 4 acre minimum in that area.   The couple are COLLECTORS of old stuff, trading on EBay.  It was impossible to take it all in.

After our house tour and the cats were left food, we went to Muriel's church where they were having an fundraiser dinner and cake auction to benefit the youth.   We had a lasagna dinner followed by the auction.  Cakes went from $12.00 to $175.00.  The best part was lots of people donated their "bargains" for dessert.

Over $1,900 was raised for a good cause.

Can anyone help?     As my daughter Amy reminds me - there is a spot on my lens which shows up on pictures in the upper left corner.    She tells me it is driving her crazy and I need to remove it.  I don't know how!    Leonard read the documents that came with the camera.  It is a Casio Exilim.  I am afraid of doing damage.  Any suggestions?

Nice house :) Can't help with camera issues - david is the photographer in our house!

Sounds like you are having a great time lady - hope to see you 'down the road' sometime again!

A good reliable camera shop might direct you to where they can polish the lens,if it is etched to bad the only other course is a replacement lens. if they are detachable. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna.

Could be a spot on inside of lens. Canned air and a soft brush should work.

Take your camera to a camera shop, if you aren't comfortable taking the lens off and blowing out the dust inside (with canned air and a soft lens brush). Also, cleaning the lens on both inside and outside. It might just be a spot of something. However, the camera shop can tell if there is damage to the lens.

I agree with the others, a camera repair shop is probably your best option. I'm assuming you've already cleaned the outside of the lens with a soft lens cleaner or a special fluid. The spot almost looks like a 'smudge'.

If a repair is possible, be sure to get a definite cost as it might be cheaper to just buy a new point and shoot camera. There are lots of really great cameras around for about $150.

What a house - pretty amazing!
