OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

John was dreaming that he was in an 18th-Century Mansion, so I had to chime in and tell him that it was time to get back to blogging!  I reminded him that today is LABOR Day in the USA.

KICKSTARTER Campaign for a better camera: Failed.  No money was collected from the 12 backers because I didn’t reach my goal in 30 days.

KICKSTARTER HAS APPROVED MY PROJECT!

Kickstarter Project_sm

 https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1306647628/a-better-camera-for-my-popular-free-humorous-photo

For over 3-1/2 years I have “fed” this blog with a $120 point-and-shoot camera.  I’m trying to raise $1,000 to buy an entry-level professional camera with accessories.  Click on the above link if you would like to contribute.  NO contribution is too small.  (Rewards are offered at the $25 and $50 level.) 

No funds will be collected if I don’t meet my goal in 30 days. I will be grateful for any support you give.  –John

Would You Want It in Your EYES?

Clean Dishes

Morning sun on our backs
shouldn’t make us frown,
but after they washed and rinsed us,
they left us upside down.

Only one more day before my month off!  I have submitted a Kickstarter project to get funds to purchase a professional camera for this blog.  If the project is approved, I’ll provide you with a link to it.
