Hope you all had a great Independence Day.  I watched my favorite tradition "Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest".  Of course Joey "Jaws" Chestnut won again. Although this year he had some stiff competition from Stonie.  I find the contest equally disgusting and fascinating.  I just can't eat a hot dog on the Fourth of July anymore. Go figure.

I got a full nights sleep. Oh, and so did Happi. I guess the painkiller idea worked. Tonight will be the real test.  If she can sleep two nights in a row we may have the cause and solution. Her wattle is shrinking slowly it seems. 

I didn't write about it yesterday but I bought a new camera. I took my old 35mm camera in to be cleaned.  I had been thinking of buying a digital camera and there were some to look at at the store. I am not sure looking at cameras on the day I was utterly sleep deprived and waiting for Happi's test results was the best idea.  Or the best time for an impulse buy. But I bought a really nice camera.  I got home and almost immediately wanted to take it back.  I don't do expensive impulse buys.  I research. I look at reviews. I check prices. I Google. I don't walk into a store and purchase.  I got home and did those things and found out I got a good camera for a decent price.  It didn't have all the bells I wanted but I was not willing to pay for those whistles.  So I am keeping the camera.

Instead of riding the bike today Brenda and I took a short walk.  I am down to one crutch now so it is easier to get around. 

Until tomorrow...


  1. I'm glad to know that little Happi is happier and feeling better. She sounds like such a sweet dog--and truly, a lucky one.

    I've had my eye on a new digital camera for a long time. One of these day, when I'm feeling flush, I'll go ahead and get it. I hope you'll enjoy yours.

    Enjoy the rest of the weekend, Adrienne!

    1. Thanks Happi is seeming better. I am in love with the camera so far but I also have a small digital camera that fits in a pocket that takes great photos and I love that camera as well. Be sure you get what you want and not more than you need. I didn't get a more advanced camera that I probably wanted because it was too heavy. I would not be able to hold that camera for very long so it stayed at the store. I got this camera because it was lighter and had the basics that I wanted. oh, and was in my price range.


Would love to hear what you have to say!
