I took this image in February when there was a fair amount of ice of the river. The purpose of this little tug boat seems to be to keep ice from forming around the bridge pylons. I was on the river walk looking for eagles and I notice this guy come out. He has a bunch of steel I beams on the barge. He would do two circles around the pylons and then head back in.
In my life time I may have been sicker than I was Friday and Saturday but I don’t remember when. OMG!! Whether it was the Novovirus (as my wife thinks) for food poisoning (like I think) it was two days of unspeakable stuff. 😦
I got sick around 12:30 pm while I was in a chamber board meeting. Nothing serious as first but an unsettled stomach. By 1:30 pm I was on my way home and praying that I could make it. I have not been out of bed for any length of time until this morning. Ugh!
Hopefully later today I can venture out of the house with camera in hand. Oh speaking of that. Impatient person that I am I called Nikon Friday morning to find out the status of my camera and was promptly told that it had not even made it to the work roster yet! 😦
She asked me if I was an NPS member and I said no and then it was like “OK, I’m done with you and this conversation.” I looked up NPS and it stands for Nikon Professional Services. (i.e. red carpet treatment for professionals.) You have to be invited to belong and have a list of credentials that I couldn’t fake if I wanted to.
So I will (im)patiently wait to hear from them, who knows when.
Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your Sunday and be careful.
