That is the old curmudgeon. The picture was taken a bit ago by the guy who owns the Canon I am packing around now.
Yep, that's me!
A friend loaned me his "old" camera. It is one of those pro models that most mere mortals can't begin to consider owning. The loan is pretty open ended, but he says he will trade me the 24 to 70 F2.8 zoom lens next week, probably for a 50mm f1.8 or so. Hope it has macro possibilities.


It has been a long break.
Maybe too long.
What with the damage to the house and the insurance and the incredible amount of time it all takes, my brain has just had to lay low and stop thinking.
Really could not decide much of anything, couldn't really think of anything, there were too many blank pages and chapters.
Then there was a check for our personal property that was lost or damaged - that helped a little. A couple days ago the main adjuster called and gave me a number of what they would pay and said that a check would be sent the next day.
We haven't gotten to the receiving part of that check yet, so I am writing with or by faith.
Now I can start thinking a bit more,  but the thoughts are not clear and certainly not definite.
We still own the house, what is left of it, and the lot it sits on. That is not bad. But what to do with that knowledge? Not sure, still thinking about it, but keeping it seems the best option, or right now it seems that way.
