The Lens

I just picked up the Sigma 70-200 2.8. I have done a little testing so far and look forward to getting to the hockey rink to see how it performs.

Birthdays and Fishin

The day before my 47th birthday my father called to say he would be fishing so he wanted to wish me a great Bday. I wished him good luck fishing and we hung up. Well.... the next day I get a call from Dad it seems he caught a monster 29 salmon. As you can see it's beauty! Posted by Picasa

Figure Skating

I headed down to the rink to try my new Sigma 70-200 and bumped into some friends. The Flukinger's. Thier daughter was competing. and I got a few shots for them. Not entirely happy with the results. I guess I need to work on a few settings. And perhaps my technique. Posted by Picasa

Family comes to visit

My mother and her husband Ralph came to visit from Brandon Manitoba. They where doing a visit with all the friends and relatives. We got the chance to spend a day together and share a meal. We laughed, cried, and solved all the worlds problems. They left for Kelowna the next day. It was real nice to see them and gab a bit. Family is great! Posted by Picasa

Buying a house

Well have you ever gone through the process of selling your old place then buying a new (new to you) house? Man does it get weird. We thought we had sold our mobile in one day on the market but the folks backed out at the last minute. So now we start all over again. We have had two more walk throughs but no offers so far. So we wait and see what happens.

This is my brother Derek coming in for a smooth landing just off Strawberry Hill. He has taken up paragliding and has really started to get the hang of it  Posted by Picasa

House Hunting

Well folks we have begun to hunt for a new dwelling. It's kinda depressing to see what a 100 grand will buy you. We are tring to stay in the Westsyde area but it looks like slim pickings so far. We have just listed our house and will wait to see what happens.

These are two of my children, Jessica & Kristine. They are the absolute "Bees Knees" Posted by Picasa
