Bought a new camera this week, a Fuji S6500. Out snapping in the garden as can be seen from the pictures. As can be seen I have not yet got the hang of the autofocus on macro mode.
The red thing is rhubarb, not the spot on my nose which I will refer to later. I suspect it has appeared a bit early due to the clement weather and I am hoping that the bucket I have over it will give protection on cold nights.
Had an interview for a post as a self employed social research interviewer on Tuesday. Extremely anxious about it and was amazed to be successful. Low pay but it will get me out of the house and provide beer money into retirement. Speaking of beer Rodney "Mester" Shaw told me yesterday when I saw him in his HQ (otherwise known as Morrisons) that it is soon to go up to £3 a pint so if I want to see him in the pub I'd better hurry up. Rodney is a local character of indeterminate age, probably of traveller origin and I should have mentioned him before.
Puch still seize free though there is no doubt that power is down, doubtless due to bore and piston damage. Plan is to replace barrel and piston after I have run it for a few miles to ensure there is no underlying problem which caused the seize which I have not fixed.
Have developed a large teenage spot on my already beer reddened nose. It is a bit much. I had acne as a teenager and the only consolation of old age was that I thought it would be spot free. It was not that I went without vitamin C as a child. The rhubarb pictured came from my family home. We had plantations of it and a large bowl of the stewed plant was always on the table when in season. If it wasn't rhubarb it was apples or gooseberries. I prefer the smooth rather than the hairy ones don't you (gooseberries that is!)?
