Picture ThisYup. It was one of "those days." You know, don't you.
To review. Bear could not get good pictures of the parade while standing the "Corporate Box." (There were pictures, but not good ones.) Bear was embarrassed to show them to friends (showed only two, so friends would understand the specifics of the difficulty).
The solution, of course, is not to buy a new camera, but to get a new lens for the camera.
Easier said than done.
Bear went to local camera store. Found the lens he wanted. A mere $1,500.00 (give or take a bit).
Which is about Bear's total "discretionary spending" for a year. Or two.
Defer decision-making; Bear is depressed.
Ask for help.
The question is:" Should Bear get a new lens for his camera?"
OK, folks. Have at it. Please let the Bear know what you think. Thank you.
Elsewhere in Bear's WorldI know that some of you go through times when Life gets in the way of Blogging. That often happens during the summer. When folks go on holidays. Or at other holiday times. Or family emergencies.
In Bear's case, that happens when life gets busy.
September 17, 2012 marks the first anniversary of Occupy Wall Street (and the similar occupations in over a thousand cities and towns around the globe). That was an event which changed some of the public dialogue in the world. The 99%, you say? Indeed. Etc.
Well, that was too good an event to forget. So this year. . . .
More on that, another time.
And while I'm not planning on leading our congregation again, any time soon, I have been asked to take on responsibility in a couple of ministry projects with the congregation. (Am I too easy, or what?)
So, if my presence seems a bit limited, I haven't gone away mad, or anything like that. I'm just "otherwise occupied."
Blessings and Bear hugs, friends.
