What Santa Claus brought me this year!

I think I must have been a very good boy based upon the presents under the tree for me this Christmas morning. I got a digital camera from Kodak, its a model CX7430 with 4.0 mega pixels and a 3X optical zoom feature. It takes REALLY big pictures in the default mode, but not very many fit on the internal memory... But the quality seems just fine and the controls are starting to be understandable.

I also received a welder! Hurrah! It looks like this Harbor Freight Easy MIG unit. While its probably completely capable of most of the work I might want to do, I might just upgrade to this welder for a little additional flexibility and power. And we know power tools are all about power now, don't we?

I received a double cd set of Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band live in Auburn Washington, the first cd is spinning my computer's drive right now! Later tonight I hope to be watching my Blues Brothers 2000 video that kind Lili bought for me.

We also had a surprise visit by grandson Astin and his proud folks. They has said they might not be coming out with the baby for fears of him catching ill. But Sarah's mom had to catch a plane home and so, while they were out anyway, they came on up to Ogden and surprised us. It was really quite wonderful.

So Christmas day passed quietly at our house with everyone playing with their new gifts and napping in between snacking. A fine time was had by all.
