Underwater Camera

I figured if I’m a-goin’ on a honeymoon I’d like to have a camera and start taking pictures for my family photo album. I’d had my eye on the Pentax W20 waterproof camera after my first kayakin’ adventure where I ended up taking the crappy digital camera out of a ziplock bag, taking a picture or two and rebagging/stowing the camera again. I figured there needs to be an easier way. So santa brought me a late Christmas present and when I was testing it out I decided I could take pictures of the fish from inside the tank.
Of course, the camera also takes dry pictures, but as I’m not photogenic enough this was the best we could do trying to get a picture to put in the Sanpete County paper to announce our wedding.

I was actually laughing at the kitten falling off the back of the couch and Kayla snapped the picture.

Singing in the snow

So when I’m trying to leave the haircut appointment I get in the car and grab the brush to wipe off the back window of the rental car while I start the engine. As I’m fully aware that I need to wipe the window, I havn’t shut the drivers side door, and I’ve got my leg hanging out still on the pavement. To my (shortsightedly, I admit) surprise the windshield wipers kick a stream of snow onto the inside of the open door and my foot. I jump out of the car and wipe the snow off the door armrest onto the slushy ground. To my chagrin, I also managed, in that one swipe, to lock the doors to the car. I shut the door, locking the keys inside along with my cell phone, ignition still running, and the wipers going, radio blaring —etc. My car (a beat up pickup truck) has a safety feature to prevent such calamities, but I digress.
Suffice it to say, I didn’t make it back to work before 5:00, and I’ve ended up paying not more (but an unknown amount) than $76 for the 2 minutes it took the AAA man to blood-pressure-cuff the door open large enough to admit a small rod to roll down the window.
