Camera bags

Guest post by Allie Tinwood

When I purchased my digital camera a few years ago, it did not come with any kind of case, or bag. I have been keeping it in a wooden storage case in my living room, but when I am getting ready to go out somewhere and want to bring the camera with me, I am always scrambling for something to carry it in. A lot of times I just have thrown it in my purse, but then it is difficult to find – it seems to find a way to shift around and settle to the bottom, and get covered up with things. Recently a container of hand sanitizer that I kept in my purse sprung a leak and it got everything in my purse very slimy and wet.

If I had my camera in my purse when that happened, I think I would have totally freaked out! When my son Jason asked me if he could borrow my camera for a week when he was planning to go visit a friend in California, he asked me if there was a case or bag to keep it in. I was embarrassed to admit that I had nothing. He encouraged me to check out these bags for cameras at AvidMax Outfitters and see if there was something there that I might want to order for my camera. They have a really good selection of camera bags, but I haven’t made up my mind which one. I think I should ask Jason what kind of bag he would prefer, since he is the one that will be taking the camera for the week!

The Chocolate Easter Bunny

When I was young, I did not like the taste of most chocolate candies. I’m pretty sure that is because my parents kept giving me the chocolates that they didn’t like – the bitter stuff. When I would get chocolate candy, say for Halloween, Christmas, or Easter, I would not eat it – remembering it to be bitter. I did not realize that some chocolates were sweet! So I missed out on the joy of eating the chocolate candies! I can remember, as a child, getting chocolate Easter Bunnies, and not even tasting them. I was an animal lover, and appreciated how cute the chocolates were! I did not want to ruin the beautiful cuteness of the bunny, and was mortified when other people would bite off the ears! I felt bad for the poor, mutilated, bunny!

No Aprils Fools For Me!

Well, April Fools Day has arrived, the day when everyone is supposed to be so happy and giddy that spring is here that they play silly pranks on each other! I’m happy to report that so far no one has sprung any pranks on me and I hope it stays that way! I think I’m safe, I’m home for the evening and I’m not expecting any guests or phone calls! I’m sorry to say that most of the April Fool jokes that have been played on me tend to be cruel, so I’d just as soon not be the butt of someone else’s mean and rude jokes.

First day of spring!

I was beginning to think that winter was never going to leave, and spring would never arrive! But today IS the first day of spring! Finally! Time to put away the snow shovels, snow blowers, snowmobile, and tune up the lawn mowers and jet ski! I’m looking forward to having some fun in the sun and water this summer! Welcome spring – you were a long time coming this year!

What would you do if you found a pot of gold? Would you hide it? Put the gold in a safe deposit box? Turn it in to the police, thinking that someone lost it and that it is the right thing to turn it in so they can claim it and get it back? Cash it in and spend it responsibly, or spend it all on luxury? Would you share it, or keep it all to yourself? What would you do?
