I bought the red ATG gun and had nothing but trouble with it. When I got tired of the frustration I bought the yellow one with an adapter so I could use 1/4" tape with it also. Then there was a mix up with the tape I ordered. I got one box of gold 1/2"(acid free) and a box of regular 1/4" (not acid free). So I put the regular tape in the red ATG (for cardmaking) and now it works good. Long story short I have two ATG guns.
Our barn is about 130 years old. It was used in a couple of weddings in the last couple of years and the photos were gorgeous. This has had maintenance done on it to keep it from falling down. The old barns are disappearing so fast.
I was feeling like "Susy Homemaker" today so I got out my sewing machine to do some mending. I've had new sewing machines but I always come back to this old faithful. It "usually" sews like a dream but today it gave me nothing but grief. Oh well it still looks good.
David and I went to the Western Fair today. This year they had a Skyline ride and we took it (took alot of work to get David up there). It was cool seeing the whole fair from above. Oh, by the way there was no way either of us were going on THAT ride, LOL!
I was talking to Karen and she was telling me about the CM photo organizing program. It sounds great but first I have to take all my photos off of Photoshop backup CD's so I bought this portable hard drive. I can't believe it; it holds (drum roll); 272,640 photos! If I fill this I need my camera taken away from me, :).
Today I had to go to the dental surgeon and have a tooth extracted. I knew I wasn't going to be looking for a picture so I snapped the dentist instruments (oops pieces of my tooth are on there). The dental assistant gave me a weird look but of course I couldn't explain with a frozen mouth. I'm finished my liquid dinner and off to bed with a pain pill so wanted to get this posted now.
We went to the Paris Fair today. One of the sites was a demonstration of snakes. This snake is so big. It's called a Yellow Anaconda. After the show we could hold the snake if we wanted. David took these pictures of me with the snake. The first one is when I was no way going to touch that snake. The second one is of me overcoming my fear and holding that snake. It wasn't so bad but not something I'm in a hurry to do again, LOL.
I spent today enjoying the weather, fighting a toothache and tearing the house apart looking for something I know is here but can't find (Grrr). Finally I went for a walk in the vegetable field and took a picture of this hot pepper plant. Usually they are all red by now and very hot!
I went to watch them bailing straw in our field and saw these two hawks sitting on the bails. I managed to capture the one flying away while the other one still sat there. It's seeing these sights that make me love living in the country.
David and I were relaxing at the top of the hill checking out if any wildlife was around. We both were enthralled with this sunset. I have seen much prettier ones but this sunset was a nice ending to a beautiful day.
The air show was on in Brantford and some of the flight paths go over the farm. The Snowbirds are a Canadian Precision Flying Team. I captured some of them as they passed over us. We actually see alot of their stunts from the top of the hill but they are too far away to take a picture. I love to watch them.
These tent caterpillars are found all over the place. They are really ugly and the only way to really destroy them is to cut off the limb of the tree and burn it. Some years they take over most of the trees.
