It's 6am and I'm awake. Fed the cats and so I thought that I would drop in and say 'Good Morning'. My new Canon Rebel T5 EOS 1200D arrived yesterday and so I'm anxious to start to play with it. Came with two lenses: 18 to 55mm Macro lens and 75 to 300mm for my zooming in close to my subjects. Going to the Zoo today and hopefully it won't rain. Hope to get some nice photos.

    Ricky and I got caught in the torrential downpour at the zoo. Found a safe spot to get out of the lightning's way. With all of those trees around, it wasn't easy. Soaked to the bone.

    We got that in NJ, too! I ran to my car and as I was sitting there I couldn't see through the rain and my car was rocking back and forth from the wind. It was wild!

Went to Occupational Therapy yesterday. The arthritis in my right hand is bothering me, causing the joint around my pointer and middle fingers to stay swollen. Need to ice it more often at home. Moist heat before doing my exercises, ice after exercises.

    did they mention Voltaren gel? It's a topical NSAID that can really help with arthritis pain. sending healing thoughts your way!

    Thanks for your good wishes ladies. I'm doing the best I can, but I do overdo it at times.

I just heard that another police officer has been shot and is in critical condition. This happened in Ballwin, Missouri. What is wrong with these people going around killing people. But, Congress let's not worry about taking the semi automatic weapons off of the streets. Unbelievable. Prayers going out to all those killed and/or wounded.

    Don't blame Congress. Those guns are out there, the bad guys aren't going to turn them in. Wish there was an easy solution, but there isn't. Prayers for Dallas.

Left some love for you ladies, but had to stop as my hand started bothering me. I've been doing hand exercises at home and I guess I over did it.

Will catch up with leaving love tomorrow. I got behind. In the meantime, I'm heading back to the boutique to see if I missed anything on sale. I'm sure there is something that I forgot to put in my cart.

I have a Olympus E600 DSLR. I've had it for about five years. It seems to have died over the weekend. My batteries are fully charged, but the camera refuses to take any photos. I've put a call into Olympus and waiting to see what they say. There is a camera repair shop about ten minutes away from my house. I'm going to stop by the store and see what they say. Has anyone had their camera die on them?

    That sounds like a win-win situation - at least you won't have to pay for them to look at it!

    I've only had point and shoot cameras die on me. Thankfully, my DSLRs have been really reliable. One daughter is using my old Nikon D70 and another is using my old D90.

    Take to a camera shop. I had my Canon die after 55000 photos. Needs a new shutter at $225 so I bought a new camera.

Update: Started OT yesterday and will be going twice a week from now on. My hand hurts worse today than it did yesterday. Doing my exercises at home also. Hopefully this will work and I'll be able tp make a fist again and use my right hand again.

    It sounds painful, I don't remember it hurting this much. Good luck and do your exercises!
    Feel better soon.

    Hoping for the best for you Carol, I do know with PT it always has to hurt before it gets better. Hang in and take care.

    But it shouldn't leave you feeling incapacitated. Make sure they (and you) aren't overdoing it.

My hand is still hurting and I start my therapy today. Last week they only took measurements, asked a lot of questions and wrapped my hand in a heated towel. Will check back in later to let you know how it went today.

My heart goes out to everyone in Orlando. Just can't believe what happened. Sending prayers and love to all who have been effected by this.

    I just don't understand what goes through the minds of the people who commit these acts. I know it's an illness, but still...I can't wrap my head around it.

    I don't understand it either Carla. But then again, we are not sickos. Maybe now they'll get the assault weapons out of all of the citizens hands. No one needs them.

    Terrible, awful, tragic, maddening. My heart breaks for the families.

There goes the budget again this month. All the gorgeous new product in the boutique will end up in my cart. Look out ladies, I'm on my way to the boutique, now. I'll try and leave something for you on the shelves, but I can't guarantee it.
