What do you "do"?
Chuck was an airline pilot, and then the recession came and the layoffs came with it. We weren't upset. Chuck wasn't loving the gone 5 days, home 2 kind of lifestyle. We're independent people, but even we have a limit. Now he works at a real job doing regulatory affairs, which I think sounds dirty but actually has to do with flying. He's a big fan of coming home each night.
I'm a teacher. I help blow noses. I sing Happy Birthday and add the Cha Cha Chas. I'm the only one in my work space allowed to use a stapler, tape dispenser, and scissors with pointed ends. Because I'm a teacher, it's important to me that the blog stays G rated. If you can help with this, that's great. No bad words, no bad thoughts, mind your p's and q's in your comments.
What's the deal with Jack?
Jack is our angel cat. When you don't have kids, you turn into certain kind of people. We became cat people. We did not set out to be cat people. This happened on accident. We're a little mortified at being those people.
But we are what we are. We've had Jack for 4 glorious years. I still get lost in his green eyes and tuna breath. We've taught him to fetch and walk on a leash. We've built him an 8 foot scratching post. We paid $1,700 for emergency surgery when he swallowed a toy. It was one of my first posts here. We are those people. We are cat people.
Who's Lucy? I thought you were sans children?
Lucy is my favorite niece. She's also my only niece. She belongs to Shelley, my favorite sister. She's also my only sister. We're together a lot and I'm a big fan of those two, so they end up on the blog pretty often.
What kind of camera do you have?
My cameras are my life, which is a little sad. My first is a Pentax K200D. I shoot with either a standard 3.5-5.6f 18-55mm lens or a fixed 1.4f 50mm. I also have a really annoying mounted flash. Oh, I am obnoxious. I also have a Nikon D5000 and a D7000. I shoot with a standard 3.5-5.6f 18-55mm lens, a fixed 1.8f 30mm, or a telephoto 4-5.6f 200mm lens. The camera thing is getting out of control.
