Back in NJ for a spell

Upper Deerfield Twp, NJ

Been a while since I've posted.   Here we sit in the cold in NJ.   Gotten really chilly this weekend.

Leonard left this morning to go Christmas shopping.  No doubt in my mind what's on the list.  I am REALLY tough on cameras.  I drop them.  I spill coffee on them.  I lose them.  I've gone through 3 cameras in as many years.  The last one I dropped only days into having it.  Bent the zoom lens.  We pried it so it would zoom. Worked reasonably well.   Three weeks ago I dropped it again.  This time no fixing it. Will take close-ups. Will not zoom.   His solution is to get me a Sports Camera.  Surrounded by rubber and waterproof.   Does he really think this will help?   I thought he knew me better than that.

We've had the girls for two weekends since returning to NJ.  Once here at Camp Driveway and then last weekend we stayed at their house in MD while their parents were in VA at a archaeological conference.

Not much else going on with me.  Leonard has been happy to be working back in his "shop".  Well, used to be his - belongs to son-in-law now.   Terri and Steve needed a new trailer to take stuff to recycling center. They bought one but it needed to be assembled.   Since Steve is working long hours Len was thrilled to work on it.   Mostly completed.   He will get out into the shop at 8 am and remain until late afternoon.  I will call him to see if he wants lunch -  most days no he doesn't.

The daughters go to their Dad's each Thanksgiving.  In past years we've worked at our church serving a dinner to those in need.  Church is not doing it this year.   That's okay with us.  We will be heading to my brothers house.   I talked to my sister-in-law yesterday.  28 people this year!    Oh my.   Should be a wee bit noisy.

Until next time - keep well.

Our son Andy has a Pentax sports camera, also waterproof, you can take it underwater with you, actually it was about the same price as some of the other point and shoot camera's, I think it is 14 megapixel so it takes really sharp pictures.Looks a little bogus with the rubber case, But it is really bullet proof, You shouldn't be able to bash it up easily. Glad to hear Len is busy in the shop. Hope your weather is warmer than ours , 27 degrees right now. Maybe we'll see you on your way west, The Escapee's Rally is at the end of May in Goshen In. we are planning on going. Have a great day. Sam & Donna....

Thanksgiving sounds like it's going to be a wonderful celebration with 28 people - must be a big Turkey!

Good luck finding a non-destructible camera.

Paul is so jealous of Leonard. He misses his shop so much.

With that many people, sounds like you will be making tons of memories on Thanksgiving. Enjoy the blessed day!

Big Thanksgiving! I know you enjoy being by your family for the holidays. Sounds like Len is in his element!
