Some Mentionables

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!

My mom keeps telling me it was her job to spoil me when I was little and now that I'm older it's my job to spoil her. Sounds like your kids are doing an excellent job! You will love having the Kindle during your bus commute. Makes the trip so much faster.

Our kids surprising us with gifts like this are always a treat. Makes us think we raised them right. Such special gifts, Annie. I know you'll enjoy them.

Oohhh! A new camera! Let me know how you like the Nikon 1. I had looked at that one pretty closely too when I was thinking about cameras. It was so nice of your daughter to think of you and your blog! Yes! Take lots of pictures! It can get addicting!

You have wonderful children, but you probably already know that. Hope you've gotten a chance to enjoy both your new gifts.
