The NIKON is a piece of shit. Sorry Dave said that, he was so frustrated with NIKON that he bought a new Panasonic Lumix for 2/3 of the cost of the NIKON repair. OH well Dave has a new camera and as Arnold would say "I am back". I have been very busy but it has been too hot here to go outside much. Even Dave who endured Woodstock winters and Toronto temperatures said it was hot and it still is hot. We have had 2 short rainfalls in 4 months, maybe more months but it sure has been hot. Dave has left me home a few times because he says it is too hot for me outside. I still like it here and Alanea has bought me a new food that I really like. I like it so much that I get Dave up at 06:00 every day to eat it. I went walking yesterday at the water skiing lake and got so dirty Dave bathed me, he said I was a filthy boy but I loved getting dirty in the mud. I am going to see Oscaroo in England in November which is very nice because he is my good friend and I have not seen him for 6 years. He was only 2 or 3 when he moved to England with Brad and James. Alanea might have bought a new computer, she is very quiet upstairs. She has had the old one for 8 years and is now ready for an upgrade. I will be in deep shit when she is figuring the new system out and I want attention. Dave and I can sneek out and have a beer in the garage.
