You know the expression that if you get a new hammer, then everything looks like a nail? Well, I've been playing with my SB800 flash and using it on everything. I got it for Christmas, but really hadn't spent a lot of time with it until recently. Today I learned how to attach the SD800 to the SB800---that's the little compartment that adds a 5th AA battery to the flash, and causes the unit to recharge much, much faster.
This plant is an airplane plant--basically, a spider plant with curly leaves. I really like the curvy metal hanging basket that it's in. I have this hanging in my bay window to help block the ugly, ugly Hitch 'n Go that's outside our window. Hopefully, this plant will get much larger soon. It's replacing a spider plant that just couldn't handle my inconsistent attention, although it did wonderfully shield us from Hitch 'n Go for about 10 years.
When we bought our house, the realtor told us that the commercial property was required to put up a fence, and that would be happening soon. Yeah. Right. So our neighbors are Hitch 'n Go, and Happy Joe's Pizza. Doug and I are worse than plants; we establish roots, and then just don't change anything. So we've lived in this house for 25 years. With Hitch 'n Go and Happy Joe's noise. We've had the same two vehicles for 13 and 11 years. And if and when we have to give them up, we'll. . . . well. . . . cry.
