Oh well, it will be back in 8.5 months. The camera is something I will have to talk to my wife about, maybe we can put it on layaway. I have no energy today, I am supposed to be doing my laundry, and picking up.


Have a great day!!!
I'll keep LC in my thoughts, Xmas.

What kind of camera do you want?

Adrian wants a new one, too. Ours is on it's last leg. It's on the list! We also want a bike for me, tv for downstairs family room, and more shelving for the garage.

He brings back so many childhood Christmases.

how wonderful! I love items that have so much memories attached to them.

Who has a copy of Photoshop that can put that on a Camaro hood?!
I like that idea too!!!

There's a gift shop & garden center here called Down To Earth that I first visited back in November when I was house hunting. It had so many neat vintage Christmas items! I know I'll go back again this year @ the beginning of the season. I can keep an eye out on things for you

I bought a few things. It's a really cool place!
I just keep an eye out for things that jog my memory, hence why my tree is covered in C7 lights and bubble lights. I don't remember too much of the ornaments, but I know my favorite one from my childhood I broke when I was 10-ish? It looked like these:


We also had some big wax covered ornaments that had Christmassy scenes all over them, they looked similar to this:

We never used them because they were so heavy on the tree.

It keeps me busy. One of the reasons I want to own a Christmas store.

Something inexpensive, I have my eye on the GE X400 15X zoom 14MP Digital Camera, I have read a lot of good reviews on it so it is just what we need for now.

I love those ornaments, Xmas. Very beautiful!!

i'll let you know if I find some.

And I remember the waxy ones. So unique!

We had some similar to them, but they had a snowy, clear glittery finish. Mom also had some candles like that. I would love to find some one day!

Thanks! We've had some heavy thunder storms so far in my neck of the woods in Oklahoma, but nothing too bad yet. My wife gets very nervous as her house blew away during a record breaking tornado we had in May of '99 (before we were married). Anyway, since then, she keeps an eye on the weather.

Thinking of you guys! Stay safe.
