New Camera

It's a Canon XTI Digital Rebel. It finally came today. My dog Jones was one of the first guinea pigs. For pictures of the kids, you gotta go to their blog.

Oak Island, NC

We went to the beach at Oak Island, NC!! We have never taken a family vacation before, so we decided it was time. But how much time is enough? The answer to that question is 4 days.

Old Man by the Sea

We saw lots of pelicans

and more pelicans

We saw some boats, too.

Big boat going into port.

Bitter Sweet News

Yesterday I found out that a manuscript for a children's book that I sent to a publisher had been accepted. Then I realized that I can not afford the author's investment required for a new author. Pretty cool getting accepted. Pretty crappy not being able to do it. Oh well. Life goes on.
