Pub Guys Recording Session

PubGuys Recording Session

27 October 2009

My day was spent with an eye on the clock, ’cause once again, I was going to be sure to attend the PubGuys recording session, and this time, I didn’t want to be late! I got my wish—in fact, I got chauffeur service! Kyle was able to stop and pick me up on his way on down Hwy 287 to the Firehouse Grill where today’s recording was to take place.

This is a great place, by the way . . . and a little too off-the-beaten path to be as well-patronized as it deserves.  It’s in Mansfield, in the same shopping center with the Home Goods and Marshalls store . . . right along Hwy 287.  Awesome food, huge selection of beers, (Rahr Octoberfest is on tap!) full bar, and great people!  Check it out.

It was a good session . . . made a little more special when the pub/restaurant owner came over to join the guys at the mics!

My Kyle and a Rita

Veteran’s Day/Armistice Day

I worked all day (except for one brief errand) and could hardly wait for Kyle to get home from work.  Tonight was camera-buying night.

We have been researching this purchase for quite some time.  Kyle—because he’s always looking for better technological gadgets, and me—because I am picky!  I knew I wanted something fairly small, but more importantly, something able to take decent close-up and zoom shots.  Low-light shooting is nice, but not at the expense of small size, or ease of use.  And, one of my biggest particulars—AA batteries!  Not these little proprietary rectangular things.  I want to be able to walk into any drug store, grocery store, gift shop, the world over, and buy batteries for my camera! 

The answer, it seemed was the Canon Power Shot SX110 IS. It’s relatively new, so there isn’t too much about it floating around out there, yet.  But, what was written about it, made me feel pretty confident about it. 

So, that’s what we bought.  I’ve taken only a dozen or so shots with it, so far, but it seems like it’s going to be just fine.  As soon as I figure it all out, that is!

Dinner tonight at Abuelo’s—celebrating the new acquisition.  I’m expecting that Kyle’s photo from today will be a shot of my new camera.  I’ll keep reporting on it, as I learn all it has to offer.  Sadly, I’m too tired tonight to read the manual!
