Don't Worry, Be Happy
I hope to take some nice photos in the mountains. I've been taking a lot of lame pictures this week, including a Fruit Loop happy face. I'm debating whether or not to carry my tripod. My "lightweight" Bogen 3001N with quick-release, ball head is a not-so-light-for-backpacking four pounds. I went to Wal-Mart this evening and bought a small, one pound, table top tripod. Since this is a rated PG blog, I'll just say it's essentially a $14 toy. The plastic head wobbles more than a weeble....and it'll probably fall down! Hopefully I can tape up the packaging and return it. Bad news is I don't have time to buy the used, lightweight, Gitzo tripod I had my eyes on. Worse news is my Bogen tripod is in the trunk of my cousin's car. Hopefully, I'll have a chance to pick it up tomorrow during lunch. This whole tripod situation sucks....but don't worry, be happy!
I had my hearty minced meat stew for lunch and dinner today. I should finish the remaining leftovers for lunch tomorrow. Speaking of food, I had an amazing revelation this past Sunday. I was looking for some sunscreen and came across my daughter's fish tank. The fish hadn't been fed for a week....oops! One of the fish looked like Karen Carpenter....but worry not, they've been fed twice a day since then. Don't worry, be happy!!
