The other day I came home for lunch and when I left, I couldn't find Barb and I failed to say goodbye or give her a kiss. Bummer. Sometimes I get so mission oriented that I forget the finer things in life. I was all set to get the siding on the west side of the rental house done that I just plumb forgot. I'll try to not make that mistake again. She even told me that she was in the kitchen making me a bowl of watermelon. The watermelon was good later but it was sad to see that she was miffed. I need to slow down sometimes and remember that people are the most important thing and the rental house is just that.
I think there is sometimes too much of the Old Colonel left in me and I get too mission oriented. I try to not deliberately hurt people's feelings but What more can I say?
I am going to spend a week in Yellowstone next month. I am really looking forward to seeing the place. It was our first National park and I have never been there. I guess it's a lot like a lot of places I haven't been to yet. Another T-Shirt for the collection. I hope to take lots of pictures on the trip and I am using the monopod to hold the camera steady. It has a X44 Lens and it also doesn't let me really know where the focus is. Well, at least not very well. It is a Nikon so the set up and camera controls are pretty much the same.
I am also going to celebrate the birthday of three 90 year old people this trip. My uncle Warren in Denver, my father-in-law in Idaho and one of Barb's Aunts. It should be fun to see a lot of the western family that I haven't seen for a while. There are a couple of people that I haven't met yet and am really looking forward to the pleasure. This is only my 66th Birthday.
Oh well, better get to moving on. Have a great weekend out there.
