What Made You Angry/Sad Today?
« on: April 09, 2011, 07:36:41 AM »
A new topic just to get things off your chest.

Was stopped at the longest traffic light in the city on the way home from work yesterday. Wouldn't you know it? A beautiful hawk glided right on top of a utility pole directly across the street! The problem? I didn't have my camera with me!!!  :thud:

I've been trying to carry it with me now that the temps are getting warmer. The camera is rated for 32?F at the coldest/lowest for safe temps. Since temps have been dropping below that at night I've been leaving it home.

On another note, I'll be getting a new tripod soon.

Got awaken by a hail storm around about Midnight!!! Jumped out of bed because I remembered that Kay's car was outside, so I went out to put it in the garage and got soaked!!! Of course the hail had stopped by then and there was only heavy rain... thus the soaking!!!  :thud:

Then around about 2:00AM both my legs got charlie horses which kept me up for an hour or so, but then it came back in one leg around 4:30AM!!!  :thud:

Needles to say an Afternoon Nap will be in my future.  :hah:

A hate the charlie horses when I'm sleeping!

Yesterday, I went to the park to take a few pics. Saw a woodpecker and got really close to it and fired off a few shots. This lady walks past when I first start and says nothing. She walks past again and started talking to me which scares the bird away. I'm not upset because I've already got a few shots in. However, that's when I realize that I had the camera on the wrong setting the whole time and the pics were not tack sharp. :(

Fasting is not fun!!!   :eek1:

Especially when you know that a colonoscopy is waiting for you at the end of your two day fast.  :thud:

Actually it all turned out to be lots easier than I had expected.  :bigthumb:

For the fasting part it was OK to have all the liquids I wanted, including broths, clear soups, etc... so I was not hungry.
For the colonoscopy part... it was quick and painless and they had me knocked out except for the last few minutes.

Thunder and Lightening!!!  :yikes:

We had a really bad thunder storm here in Tobaccoville last night and there was lots of lightening to go with it. At least one bolt struck the house and fried several sections of phone wire and burned out the HDMI connector on the satellite box, we can still use it by connecting with RCA cables, but the picture quality is way down... a new box is supposed to arrive fro Dish on Thursday.

It also fried the DSL modem, so our internet was down for about 16-18 hours... Kay was not happy.  :08:
It only took the Windstream tech about five minutes to replace the modem and fix the issue.  :2thumbs:

Did you have surge protectors? If you buy good ones they will replace what was fried. ;)

We have them, but they are older. Everything was covered except for the phone wires.

Brain power/function.

What really sucks is when you know what you are losing.
Something like Alzheimer's might be better, because at least that way you wouldn't have a clue!  laughing7
