The only problem with Hubby's recent photography obsession is that it's led to frequent trips to Precision Camera and Video over in Austin, the largest camera store in Texas.

And, every time he goes to that camera store, he ends up popping into Terra Toys -- the world's greatest toy store, which happens to be right next door.  And, every time he goes to Terra Toys...

Calvin ends up with new stuff!

That's what grandpas do, right?

Is it just me, or do you see the resemblance too?
Of course, I have no room to talk. After all, I went out and bought a new car yesterday, to replace my beloved Little Zippy, just for Goober. That's what we grandmas do, right?

Almost finished with my "beginner project" from my Paper Painting class last week!

Once I complete that bit of background on the upper left corner, I can finally move on to something a bit more interesting, like a toucan, or perhaps a couple of my daughter-in-law's wedding outfits for the Sudanese travel journal. One thing is certain, however. Judging from the sheer amount and variety of papers it took just to fill in a simple red apple on a solid blue background? Well...

I'm gonna need to paint a heckuva lot more paper, in a whoooole lot more colors, before I move on to something more challenging!
