It was an OK weekend. The weather was windy Friday and Saturday and I didn’t go diving. I probably could have gone out Sunday but I didn’t call anybody.
I ruined my phone yesterday, I cleaned the touchscreen with alcohol, it got all inside, wrecking the backlight.
Last night we sat out on the back porch, the moon was beautiful, and, playing with my camera, I got some good shots. I have had many Canon Powershot Cameras, with this one I am going to learn ALL the features.

I don’t know what I’m going to do about another phone.
It’s Sunday, I’m up, the wife is still sleeping.
I showered, walked the dogs, had some cereal and am drinking coffee. I’m thinking about going for a bike ride. I put new handlebars on my bicycle last week.
It was a windy weekend and I don’t think there is any diving going on that I’d be interested in.
But this coffee is dang good!
Yesterday I was playing with some of the functions of my camera that I don’t normally use. It was pretty cool I thought:
Replacing Green with Blue
Everything Black and white except green (The guy looks like a bronze statue!)
Replacing skin tone with blue. Didn’t work too well. but neat effect!
I got off early yesterday, and I have the day off tomorrow, but I’m working today! But I’m not complaining. Tonight The Wife and I are going to a Thanksgiving dinner. Usually it is a pretty big event, poolside, a hundred or so people, and very disorganized. We will see how it is this year. My friend has a dinner every year, and I haven’t been for a while.
Here’s some pics from my beachwalk yesterday.

A sign for what?
Last weekend I went to the 19th annual Partagas/Casa Del Habano cigar dinner. It was a weeklong event and the dinner was the closing. There were raffles, auctions, dancing girls, and of course, cigars.
I uploaded all my pics to Photobucket, HERE. Also I am trying a new slideshow experiment below. Check them out, there’s over 200, It takes the same amount of time to look at them as it does to smoke a cigar. You can do both at the same time!
This weekend I’m going to a Cigar Dinner. I’m meeting my father-in-law there. I will smoke many cigars this weekend!
Yesterday I stopped at the beach for a half mile swim, after I got done it slowly dawned on my dim little mind that the beach was more crowed than normal. So I wandered around, eventually asking someone what was going on. There was a Turtle Release! Several times a year, the Turtle Farm here releases turtles into the wild.
Of course, it was so crowded I didn’t actually see anyone actually put any turtles in the water, but I did see several turtles with trustworthy turtle-release agents.

I couldn’t actually see the release
This morning I was coming to work, usually the traffic is pretty light. Today I hit a pretty big backup. Having a scooter, I pulled into the center lane and went around.
There was a cute puppy playing with a cute young chicken in the road. Oh they were frolicking joyfully and cutely.
I’m not saying I would have run them over.
But if I had my camera and took pics, you’d be ooooh-ing and ahhhh-ing, making me want to puke with the cutness of it all.
