Last month when DD Erica was in town she surprised me with an early Mother's Day gift. I was flabbergasted to open it and find a red Nikon 1 camera, in brand new condition, that Erica had scored (dear me, I hope she paid a small fraction of the list price on this link!). She claimed my little GE point and shoot "makes people look fat"--plus, she knew how important good photos for the blog and my archives are to me. I was thoroughly chastised, therefore, when I showed up in Arizona at her graduation without the new camera. My claims of lack of time, traveling light and not having a camera bag were not accepted. Oops. But I am very pleased to have such a wonderful gift to explore and get to know.
Not to be outdone, son Nick and The Marrieds, Elaine and Chris, surprised me at our belated Mother's Day brunch last weekend. I was flabbergasted once more to open a box--and find a Kindle Fire. Just the thing to keep me elevating my legs as I am supposed to, yet able to blog and surf the net, and of course, read, play games, or watch shows. Sweet!
So here is a photo of my Kindle taken with my Nikon. The red case completes the theme, I suppose :) Thank you very much, Erica, Elaine, Chris and Nick! I'm very grateful to be spoiled in this way by my kids!
