I’ve bought myself a present, well two actually :-)
The rain poured down all night and continued for a long time during the day too, well I won’t complain because it looks like I’ve washed my car 🙂 I am however glad the wind has calmed down, I do like to fall asleep to the sound of a strong wind but it is no fun in driving around in it. Much better now days though since the SAAB is quite heavy. My little Mazda that I had before got tossed around in the most nasty ways sometimes and I don’t miss that at all 🙂
It is my birthday today and I usually don’t celebrate it but I tend to have it as an excuse to buy me something that I want. Last year I bought myself the Hasselblad camera and two lenses, this year is cheaper thankfully but yes one of the things is a camera and I’ll tell You more about it when it arrives. The second thing was something I didn’t expect to get. I saw this telephoto lens on the pawn shops auction site. It is the same I already have but the auto focus doesn’t work on that one I already have.
It was less than an hour before the auction would end and the price was only half of what it would cost as new, so I placed a bid and forgot about it. No one else placed another bid, which is odd because this is a good lens and many usually wants it so now it’s on its way here. I guess I’ll have it before the weekend arrives. Pawn shops used to be a good place to get rid of stolen things but not so any more, the one selling an item, private or a business, must know it isn’t stolen. If they would sell a stolen thing and get caught they would go down for receiving and selling stolen goods. They write down serial numbers and anything else so it is easy to check it oneself.
It is time to make something to eat and to watch the news.
Have a great day!
