Clickety click

My new toy arrived yesterday :-)

Isn't she cute? :-)

I vowed to keep my real toy safe from the elements - gotta learn from past mistakes - so I patiently waited until I had enough airmiles and then picked this one from the rewards catalogue, yes that's right this little blue baby didn't cost me a cent!

Hey I'm frugal, not cheap ;-)

Now I have something to snap pics and create HD movies with in the rain, the snow, the dusty barn, windstorms, you name it since it's waterproof, dust proof, shock proof and freeze proof! Well, so they say - I won't test it by throwing it in an icy river or anything.

I'll let you know how it goes after a few test shots. I'm not expecting anything spectacular as I have a real camera for that, this is just for those difficult situations.

So we'll see.

Today the big barn renos begin, we're replacing all the windows - uggh, can it please be over with! It will take a few days as there's not one straight angle or unrotten piece of wood in that hunk o'junk but we have to start somewhere. My handyman neighbor and I will do our best and that's that.

I heaved yesterday when pulling more poop-infested insulation from the walls. This shit was fresh, I'm not joking. Looked and stank like human crap - WTF?!

*gags some more*

One day Vegas will make us filthy rich and I'll never have to do this again, I can wear funky pink construction boots with a matching hard hat and direct a crew of professionals to build us a fancy barn from the ground up, that's what!

Because my husband rocks ;-)

Oh GROSS! I'm sorry you're stuck doing all that poop laden insulation removal! But that is one cool blue camera!

I've often thought of getting a waterproof camera as it rains so darn much here.

I get photography withdrawal symptoms when I cant get out there with my camera..

Do try it out soon and give us a review!

I will save you from the poo-poo :)

Congrats on the click-click. Let us know how you like it...

Sorry the barn saga continues. It really is gross, but alas my dear the deed must only be done once. Once it's all fixed up and Big Daddy is warm-n-toasty, you'll be so glad you went thru all this crap (literally). Ha!

Poop is never ever fun to deal with...but fresh poop? gag.
Love your new toy...I am sure you will too. IT is nice to have a little one to throw in the purse or pocket; you know spontaneous.

Your new camera is super cute! Love the color. And free, too? You win today.

I'm selfish, but I want you to run a B&B so I can come have an animal vacation! :)

To be free, it is quite a cute camera!
