Chickens, camera and JP  
Not much interesting stuff has happened which is why I haven't posted in a few days. It's been cold and yucky down here. I've mostly been editing videos and uploading photos. I should probably start making posts now about my trip here. I made my second attempt at my Christmas card today and it just did not go well but I think it's better than the last attempt. But I'm not sure if it's something worthy of printing. Perhaps I shall try a third time and if I can't get it draw something generic...gah no. That's not my style.

I found three eggs yesterday that belong to Amaretto. She was laying them in the bottom corner of the coop. I put her in one of the nests today and she was digging but nothing happened. But that's a good sign. Maybe now she knows what the nest is for. I have been shoving my chickens in there to try to each them they need to go inside. So two of the six are now laying and both are my normal brown egg layers. All the eggs are still extra small. I don't know how many to use in my pie that requires six. I hope the others will start to use the nests because they have the special eggs. Latte and Hazelnut lay olive eggs, Leafie lays chocolate eggs and Melon lays cream eggs. I miss the eggs the old girls used to lay. It's a shame they retired. I washed out the coop today.

Chris is going to take Wed, Thurs and Fri off next week for Thanksgiving. I have some Thanksgiving decorations already up. Well I really want to get that camera and found this guy in Sarasota selling one of a good price. He said Weds is a good day to meet but I'm worried someone will go before then and buy the camera. Hope and pray that doesn't happen and that camera will be for me. If that works out then we can do stuff around Sarasota and I can start to use it. I hope the forecast is wrong and it won't be so cold that day. I do have a back up plan if this does sell. There's another guy in Tampa with one but it's more expensive. Still it comes with more lenses and the boxes so that's kind of better but also why it's more.

I got my Jurassic Park Helicopter the other day! I love it. I was so happy. I think I will put it together for display as it's just such an awesome toy. I can't believe I got it mint in box with all the parts. The net is awesome and usually what's missing in these toys when you buy them used. Over 20 years and I got a new one. I was like a kid on Christmas and Chris even got pics of me like that.

What kind of pie are you making that takes six eggs? That's a lot for one pie.

I've been looking at your trip pictures. I showed your pic of the barracuda to my mom. She's seen a big one. A five-foot long one got about three feet from her face when she was snorkeling in Cancun once. She thought it was a shark at first, but then she saw its underbite.

Oh good you've been following that. Well not everyone here goes to my DA's so I need to post some of those pics here still. Wow yeah the big ones can be dangerous. I'd rather see a small shark than an adult barracuda. I'm glad you showed your mom.

I'm sorry it's so cold but that's cool that you are starting to get eggs. I hope Amaretto has the idea now to lay in the nest.

Hooray for getting the helicopter, too!

And I hope you get the camera that you want.

Yeah well nothing you can do about that. We'll tough it out. Yeah I hope she knows what it's for now and will use the others.

This is such a neat toy. Love it.

Thanks. Hopefully it will work out.
