signs...

most of the signs i took initially hung out on the fence at the Java Junction   i  laughed at some of them tryin' to imagine the enforcement of such rules way back when....

...anyways, today was a s-l-o-w day for me   felt really tired while workin' at Jen's office today    and today i told her, that from this point forward she is not to pay me   i have a limit of how much i can make and it appears my new boss at the convenience store wants to utilize me that one extra day a month i have   (will be working this coming tuesday)   this means i either don't help Jen out, or i just do it volunteeringly   i told her i worked soooo much more when i volunteered at our church   even when i first started working for her, i questioned as to whether to be paid for it  it's only a couple hours a week and it's really small jobs i do   important in the whole scheme of things for her, but trivial work to me   so, the job(s) situation have unfolded as they should    maybe eventually i'll not work at all, but i need something else to do with my time   until i find that, work is fine....

in the meantime, i went to REI, my favorite outdoors sporting goods store   i went to purchase a mini tripod for my camera that wood work for  my Grand Canyon trip   well lo & behold, just below that tripod was another full size tripod that is light as a feather almost   for only $7 more, i purchased it   thought the mini tripod was too short still once i fully opened it up   so i bought the full size   it was inexpensive too   granted it aint the best of the best, but it's simply awesome for backpacking and carrying around in any backpack i have in other future adventures   i wanted a tripod for the full moon photos   and the next full moon is in  a few days   we will be backpacking into the Grand Canyon on the full moon days/nights   i hope to take some great pics of the scenery with the full moon in full view   so this weekend i'll practice with my new tripod   will post the photos probably sunday   there's also a place in the city i'd like to take of the city lights at night   will see if i can still find that place in the next couple days   that wood be kewl too with the full moon at large   Goodness, great things ahead!

now, to chill out for the remainder of the evening with a little ice cream...

 It took me forever to find a tripod I could easily carry on my bike.  I have a couple now that work.  One is just tiny.  great for those crawling on the ground to get the best shot shots.  I can't wait to see your pictures.   Me....I am not sure I would work at all if I didn't have to.  Maybe in the winter.

I love the signs and the old wood they are hung on!   Isn't REI the best?  I dont know if we have one here in FL but I have been to them in CA and AZ.

    I'm looking forward to see what photos come from the Grand Canyon. I've decided that since I still haven't made it there myself, I will visit it vicariously through you.
