    Sounds like it's over-exposing outside. Kinda like you. Is it a point-n-shoot, dslr? What kind of camera?

    Friggin cameras.... the trail of dead bodies is over 10 strong in my life. :rofl:rofl:rofl
    Sucks, but when I think about how much fun I'm having, I happily get another. :lol3
    I occasionally decide I'm getting a real DSLR, then I think "who the hell are you tryin to fool":lol3

    I really want to get a mirrorless next: small and somewhere in between my point and shoot and a dslr. Just not very good for moving targets. Oh well, one day....

    a school it is, we added on the 3story part then after school lets out. We'll tear down the old building to the left of that white van. Fill that side of that retaining wall up, add a new bus loop, more parking & playfield.

    It's gonna be a busy summer. :(:

    getting psyched up for the next trip out west & right before we leave i've got some sorta throat thing going on almost over it.

    the saturaday before we leave wake up with sinsus infection from hell. Robin wakes up all sic & i have to hold a gun to her head :gun1to get her to go to the dr.

    She gets back shes got a broncial infection & 5 different bottles of pills.

    I go monday 2 shots in the ass a bottle of antibotics & lets go. ( i can work like this but its no way to take a vacation)

    Thrusday she meets me at work, we leave her truck there. Head to the big bird. Land in phoenix, pick up rental car, told them we wanted a poshce. They give us a little vw sedan, close enough. Go get bike covered in dust, haul buggy over to quailty cycles in mesa & leave it with dave.

    I forgot to mention while we were at storage unit we admired renes new hot tub
