My birthday was a few days ago but it was today that I got toys. Wheee.
After work I went to Occoneechee Park to go around the mountain twice. That's around 5 miles. Even though it was only around 70f it didn't take long before I was soaked with sweat. This getting old business isn't good for ones health. Of course being dead is no picnic either.
Anyway, the first trip around I saw 5 snakes and was upset that I didn't have my camera. I generally don't bring it with me these days because I go slower when I'm carrying it 'cause I keep taking pictures.
So on the second loop I had retreived the camera from my car and carried it with me. Of course I didn't see one damn snake. The bastards! At least I saw this deer as a consolation prize. But I can't pick up a deer and take a picture of it so it's just not as good as a snake.
Back to the topic of toys...
When I arrived home I found that I'd gotten 3 packages from Amazon, all ordered at different times. The most recent order, the one for a replacement camera, arrived after only 4 days. Not bad. I've got the battery charging now so I'll find out in an hour or so how well it works.
The other two packages contained DVDs in one and a book in the other. What a nice welcome home.
I've still got some books that haven't been delivered yet. They were books that I preordered. One was released yesterday so I'll receive it in a day or two, the other gets released next Tuesday. Both are books that I'll read right away. :-)
And speaking of birthday gifts, a friend of mine recently vacationed in Hawaii and she's promised me bikini shots of herself cavorting on the beach. I can't wait!
