Good afternoon, hosers.

We've been doing a bit of bill paying and a little shopping. The photo backpack is scheduled to be here tomorrow, and the 24-70 is ordered. It will probably ship Friday or Saturday with a delivery on Tuesday. I head to Dewey Beach, Delaware on Wednesday for a conference and will take them.

We have selected a roofer and a company to handle the door replacements, and are asking for a quote from a chimney specialist for sweeping and repairing the cap. MLW had a teleconference with the movers yesterday, so we are well on the way. We can't take too much up until a couple more rooms are cleared and cleaned, but I'll take a rocking chair and a couple boxes with me tomorrow when I go up and cut the grass tomorrow.

Busy times!! And a new lens to boot! Hope you get some time to play with it.

Moving is kinda fun, kinda painful, and always kinda crazy. 🤪

Anybody seen hide or hair of oldhippy, I've noticed that he hasn't been posting since 12/28/2021.

I miss his flower shots, and whimsical titles.

So, I guess USPS will deliver on stormy nights, but not on overcast days. Backpack is somewhere in transit, "Picked up by carrier" according to Amazon, but USPS says "Status not available." New date is between today and the 10th. Amazon is still holding off on shipping the lens since I requested delivery on the 10th.

It looks like it has been handed off to UPS (AKA "Brown Santa"), which says delivery Monday. It also says "Signature required." I am not home on Monday.

Luckily I've paid a few bucks to have ir rerouted to the local UPS store.

I had some errands to do today, my wife knew it was supposed to be delivered today along with a required signature. She found their sticker on the door that they were there, oh well I'll just go to their office Monday and pick up the lens.

They some/many times do not wait for you to come to the door.
Sticker on the door then back to the truck for the next delivery.

Happy day, all you mothers!

No, really, Happy Mother's Day. And have a great day, even if you aren't a mother.

The 24-70 (the "son") is supposed to arrive tomorrow, along with the backpack.
