It's Here! — Six Word Saturday —
my Six Words:
The new camera is another Sony pocket camera, this time a Sony DSC-WX50, a 2012 model. Being a 2012 model means reduced price. It was listed at $199.99 but I doubt many were sold at that price. My price was $107.95 from an Amazon.com associate supplier, Roberts LP. Not being from Amazon itself eliminated $6.80. T e x a s . sales tax.
Mrs. Jim and Katrin here are scrounging in the refrigerator for us some leftovers for lunch. Mrs. Jim did well with these left over from our Tuesday evening domino group dinner.
Next comes a back yard picture followed by two side yard pictures. The golf course is dried grass mostly yet due to a late heavy frost.
You can click on any picture to make it larger.
The side yard pictures below are of the back porch and the greenery on the property line. The right hand picture shows the red bud tree pretty good.
Here is a front yard picture. The ornamental pear trees in front are starting to bloom.
The holly tree in front here has its berries starting to fade. They soon will drop and the birds will pick them up for us.
Below is a before and after picture of Katrin. She had a trip to the groomer today. I can get three haircuts for the price of one for Katrin. But then mine last three times longer so we come out about even.
She gets pretty shaggy between her cuttings. Mrs Jim will trim some in between times, especially around her eyes. While Katrin was getting her cut Mrs. Jim and I played a round of golf. Neither of us were up to our usual so so game as each of us for differing reasons had not played for a couple of weeks.
Here are a couple of trial pictures. At left is my twilight shot of the moon. The Moon is not any of the round items as it was a sliver moon. It is the small dot, second from the top of the slanting upward four above and right of the tree. My drowned camera would not take pictures of the moon.
At left is a trial of the zoom function. I was sitting beside Mrs. Jim, top picture here, and the chair was thirty feet away in the living room. I think it did pretty good. This camera zooms five times with the lens and five more digitally after the lens is fully extended.
The green on Katrin's head is a St. Patrick's Day
ribbon that the groomers put on her.
Happy St. Patrick's Day to you!
(be sure to wear green tomorrow
so that you don't get pinched.)

I liked your leftover lunch too. Now I'm hungry.
Have a terrific day Jim. My best to Mrs. Jim. :)
I loved seeing the before and after photos of Katrin,I liked her fur before the haircut but I must admit she looked super cool afterwards and the green bow in her hair just made it!
Your back yard....woah...at first I thought it just couldn't be so....it's huge!!I need a garden like that!
The camera looks great,I cringed when I heard what you had done with the first camera because that is something I would so do!I have washed my beloved earphones before,lucky they did still work...and for that I was 'very' grateful!I would like a new camera and hang over a Nikon...must start to save those shiny pennies!
Keep snapping,I look forward to seeing some more good shots,could you do some of your neighbourhood,I would love to see what it's like around your house after seeing your back yard...love Jess x
