And so it begins again
I also got a letter in the mail, similar to last year's, about a week ago. The language on this door hanger has a confidence that belies the 7 weeks of perfect weather where nobody from the city even came to our street, let alone did any work. We shall see. At least the cars won't be able to drive up and down the street for a good chunk of the summer.
I got a camera by the way, a Pentax Optio M50 and so far I'm quite happy with it. There is some useless nonsense on it (a smile mode, for real), but I can hold 96 pictures in it without a memory card at a fine resolution, higher than these you see here. It seems zippy enough. I had to go downtown to pick up some cables for work, so I made a lunch of it and swung by Simon's Cameras. Got a very smooth salesman who quickly knocked any thoughts of spending less than $100 out of my head. They do seem to have excellent service, helpful and knowledgeable, good selection and what seemed like quality service (the guy said I could bring it back for up to a year if there are any problems).
