Dance Monday, open Tuesday, afterschool program Wednesday, Dance Thursday and Friday.

Gonna be a long year.

Matt
I hear ya too...we have swimming lessons Mondays, off Tuesdays, Amelia Brownies Wednesday, Church Band practice Thursdays, Fridays off. I work 2/3 Saturdays too. When I work nights, I try to pre-make the dinners so they can grab and go. Will get worse when Audrey starts getting into things too, still, we have it light compared to alot of you guys.

Yeah thats how I did it too for the first year, 18-55 and 55-300. Then expanded 10-20mm, 30mm, 18-135mm, 55-300mm, but one thing to know is this can get addictive and stupid expensive. So love it but be careful loving it lol!

Moning all.

Again, life is cramping my DIS time. Stupid life.

On the up side, Lovie is now 8-2 on Monday Night and Romo has applied for a new job as "Turnover Specialist". All in all, GO BEARS!

I have to admit though I punted on Fantasy this week. Benched Colston and Witten in favor of Holmes and Gates. Hopefully I can climb back into contention next week.

Praise for those deserving, prayers for those in need, bacon for all.

Drats! I KNEW I should have texted you on Sunday. We were at BG from about 2 to 6. How long were you there? You plan on going for Christmas Town?

I've seen that sign! They have some interesting ones in there DD loves to hit the gem sluce at the shop around the corner from there. She found some emeralds and rubies this time.

Also ran into a former co-worker recently, waved me down from dropping the girls off at school, he was in the area having breakfast. He's battling cancer and been off work fir some time now. Lost a kidney apparently. I knew he had been off sick, but nobody really knew why, he's a very private person. I worked with him for over two years when I started out, and 8 months of midnight-shifts, plus almost another two years at my current store a few years back, golfed and drank with him often too. I didn't even recognize him how much he changed in appearance. They've both been on my mind alot lately. While I complain about a lot of people I work with,., these are two good souls.....

Prayers sent! Life can change quickly.... at any time.

I did some in the pre-SWMBO days when I had time and money. I'm hauling my gear to the pawn shop tomorrow to get what I can for it. Not much demand for a Fujica STX-1 these days and my lenses aren't compatible with anything new. Makes me when I think what I have in the 80-200, wide angle, etc.

Seconded. Elements is really the way to go. You'd have to be pretty advanced to take advantage of a lot of the functionality in the full version of photoshop, Elements will most likely be more than sufficient for you and it is easier to use too.

We were actually on the same side here, nemesis. Thanks for taking care of the Cowboys.

Glad you liked it. I just spoke to the rest of VA and we are currently accepting applications from New Jersey. I never want to move.

In other news, the Cubs completed their long, steady march to 100 losses yesterday. Thank God for the Astros.

Prayers go out to your co-worker and friend...and all others struggling right now. We will keep them all in our thoughts.

Hey Dads! Good Afternoon!

It's DD birthday on Columbus Day and a company holiday, but now I have to #@$%^%$ work! Auditors managed to screw up enough stuff that will need to be in the office meeting to meet our filing extension date. Everythings has been done since late August. Why do they always wait until the last possible second. Venting over....Thanks.

Here's hoping for forgiveness. I guess Sunday will be spent making the princess feel like the queen (this is going to be expensive ). Wish me luck.

The workshop I attended last week had someone there at the beginner level like myself and they had already spent about $4k on lenses. He had a fish eye that he didn't eben know how to use. The fisrt one I would like to get is a good quality 50mm.

Yeah you can have a 1000$ lens but if you don't know how to use it you might as well be shooting with a point and shoot. Lol as for 50mm could do a sigma 50mm they are just as good as a Nikon official lens. I have a sigma and love it! Tell that student to give me the lens and I'll use it til they know how to!
