Happy Monday! ~ 277
I hope you enjoyed your Father’s Day. I had one of the best in recent memory. What I wanted for Father’s Day was to do something with my kids. Angie had said that she, Ben, and the Grand Kids were going to bring DQ over later in the afternoon. So when Mark arrived I asked him how long he was going to be able to stay (thinking I wanted to be sure he would be here when Angie stopped over.) He said, “I here all day for you to do whatever you want.”
During our conversation we got to talking about golf and to make a long story short we decided to go over to Lacoma Golf Club and play the front 9 of the old course. We originally were only going to play 9 holes because of the threatened rain but the weather proved to be just great so we played 18 holes.
It was a great time together and to spend it playing golf made it even more special. Neither one of us played very well but the golf was secondary. One of my dreams has always been to play golf with my kids. We did it a lot when they were younger, but now that I’ve pulled away from golf and they both have their own busy lives I wasn’t sure it was going to happen. Now my next goal is to play with both Angie and Mark together. 🙂
When we got home Jeanne made us a nice lunch and then I took a nap. When I came back to the world Mark had dug out the stump for us. That is the second one he has dug out and sure saved me a lot of hard work, aches, and pain.
Around 6:00 p.m. Angie, Ben and the Grand Kids came over for ice cream and we had a great visit and of course a Oreo Blizzard just makes the world seem better. 🙂
Some camera information. I shot all the images for this post with a little Nikon Coolpix point-and-shoot camera. It does an okay job for events like this when you really can’t drag the big DLSR out. There are some beautiful golf holes at Lacoma and there were some times I wished I had brought the D4 but this little camera did a good job.
On other news I have sold my D800. The D800 is a great camera and captures amazing detail. The trade-off is that the files are huge and hard to work with. They actually slow my computer down to the point of frustration. I am never going to do any type of photography that requires that level of detail. That and the fact that I did not need three cameras convinced me to sell it. I still have the D4 and the D600, which is a super camera.
Okay, I’ve already told you more than I know so it’s time to get on with the day. Thanks as always for stopping by the blog. Enjoy your day and be careful.
