Pictures: There a lot of these around this year.
I cut the top off this one 😦
Chores: Today was my chores day, so off to the city for laundry, water and shopping.
Pictures: Two little chippers 🙂
City: My friend Barbara and I went into the city today and did a few chores and had a meal out. I got water for the RV and did a little shopping.
Weather: We have a sunny day with a little breeze but I do hear thunder in the distance, so maybe there will be afternoon shower.
Pictures: Okay I am done with the Cabinets for now. Nothing special mostly square cuts and improper mounted hinges I had most of the hinges already and I didn’t realize till I was ready to mount the doors that they where not the right ones, so I said the heck with it and just went with them. The square part should be on the inside of the door. No big deal to me. I made a cabinet for each end of the 12 foot slide, both the same, 28 inch tall 38 inch wide and 16 inch deep. I give around my kitchen table because I just ended up piling things on it so now I have a place to put things away. So goes the old bachelor’s rig 🙂
Time: Now I have back my time to enjoy birding and computer stuff, like blogging and such, a good thing 🙂 Tomorrow will be catch up day on chores, laundry, water for the RV and such.
Pictures: I have three folder of pictures from the area and I am still on the second one, so …… more to come. I was lucky to have some overcast days when I came and it made for good photographing 🙂
City: Went into Kingman today and did a few chores, pick up water for the RV, pick up a few gallon jugs of water for my drinking water, did the laundry and little shopping. Such is the exciting life of an old dude out in the wide RVing!
New Lens: Ha, that is probably a year out, only one toy at a time. I have been looking at the Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM Lens a lot but that thing is just too costly for me just now. The 100-400 with a 1.4 ext would give me a nice reach of 560mm. I think in a year the price will drop some and maybe by then I’d be ready to buy. I have looked a lot at the Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM C lens too, a much cheaper lens with about 90% of the ability of the Canon lens. The Sigma would be great competition for the Canon on the long end seeing as I would have to use the 1.4 ext on the Canon but from 100-400 the Canon would be the top dog for sure! Given the choice and money not being a considerations, I would for sure go with the Canon but seeing as the Sigma is half the price and money is a considerations, well ….. Just thinking on it all 🙂 Jump in with comments if you have thoughts on it.
My long lens for now are the Canon EF 300mm f/4L IS USM Lens and the Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L USM Lens with no IS. Both great lens but I would trade the two of them and some dollars for the new Canon 100-400mm II. Oh I do have the Canon EF 1.4X II Extender, would be nice to upgrade to the III. Of course I could go on with a long list of all the gear I would love to have …. but I’ll make do I guess! LOL
Pictures: Looking out my front door in the evening.
Exercise: My short walk again today. The two miler ain’t much but it keeps things moving even if it is a bit slow!
City: Took a little trip into Ash Fork today for water, eggs and checked on mail(not here yet). Ash Fork is a really small place but it had the things I needed, for now. It won’t be long till it’s Wal-Mart time or some big store anyways.
Pictures: More wild flowers … or weeds 🙂
City: Took me a ride into Cortez, CO today and I like the little city. I fill a propane tank and got some water for the RV and did a little shopping.
Exercise: I took me a long walk after getting back from the city, not sure how far but I’ll guess something over 5 miles. Didn’t go out with that size walk in mind, it just kind of happen
