Well definitely won't be in Lakeland anymore but I'll keep the list updated as a I move. About to graduate "A" School and get into the real Navy! Nice to see Nifty traveling and hey, maybe I'll jump lists to the European one.

Real Navy, huh? What were you in, the Coast Guard? ;)

Rick and Chris ... I'm I correct that neither of youse has posted up pics? Come on guys, what good is this thread without pics. ;)


Rick.. I believe ChrisBlaze is deployed at this time, but do try and contact him in case he is available, then move to the next on the list, Kevin (assisn2leads) ... Look back a few posts.

well, i sent a pm to chrisblaze. i'll wait a couple days and see what's up.

as for pictures, i ain't got much. but what the heck. i did take a few the weekend before last at a local organic farm. my wife and i were playing with the concept of starting a blog showcasing local farms, shops, eateries, wineries, etc. (http://localbeet.blogs​pot.com (external link)) for our first foray, we went to this place and i took a handful of shots. here they are... (these were all taken with the 50D)

so, nothing too special and other than this, i've only taken a couple of indoor shots of our dogs lazing about. dang, you wait so long, then when nifty shows up, you're too busy to do anything with him!! oh well, i'll still try to get a few more shots before i send him out...

Good to hear!

I'm sorry about the lack of pics. :o

I've been busy with wedding photos, I will try to get my nifty shots up tonight. It was great fun.

So Rick... It looks like if Chrisblaze does not answer you the next on the list would be canonnoob.

I'm going back home and I'm unsure if Nifty's been there but if he has, I'll take him around a few other areas 'cause it's home and I know it well. Va Bch baby!

So for some reason, I can't get my pics to show. Flickr has made some changes apparently. I will keep trying...

That's what I normally do but it looks like the process has changed somewhat.

This looks like it will do the trick in case anyone else is having issues:

So here is a brief synopsis of my time with Nifty and some of our experiences together:

Nifty showed up at my office about three weeks ago looking like he'd been through a long night in Vegas. Weary from all the traveling and in need of some R&R, he hopped in the car and we made our way to my house. Right off he struck me as the quiet type, not much of a conversationalist. I told him that if he thinks he's tired now, just wait until he meets my kids.

8/26/2010
I decided to show him around so we went for a walk into downtown Grass Valley. By the time we got there it was on fire.

My mind immediately thought of the alleged "Nifty Curse" and how things can go pear shaped rather quickly once he pays a visit. We stopped and looked at the fire trucks and some of the other buildings before heading back to the house.

I had a wedding to shoot tonight but I thought it would be fun for Nifty to come along. I didn't like the thought of him being cooped up in the house and I thought maybe he could help out a little. I was wrong. As soon as we got there, he split. Apparently he has a thing for bridesmaids. And let me tell you, he's quite the ladies man. All his stories about where he's been, the places he's seen. The long, unaccounted for absences. He's very mysterious. Kind of like that Dos Equis guy.

I finally managed to snag him for one shot and I wish I hadn't bothered. He looks kind of soft in this picture. He and the maid of honor had been doing J├Ągermeister shots for a good hour by this point and I think he was drunk.

After the wedding was over, I went to the bar to pick him up. Needless to say, I was pretty frustrated with him. Neither of us said anything on the way home.
