At long last I got together with Linda and her Shire horse "Jim" for a photo
He's a massive horse but very gentle and calm.
Wasn't bothered at all by my being there or the flash going off.
Made a little">movie

Still working on the main crop of pictures. I think she'll like the results

My mate Ian, the bastard!

(viewed 748 times)
I've been best of mates with Ian since we were both 17/18 and joined the
army (1980/81 for anyone who's counting backwards)
We now still work together, as truck drivers at Huisman in Nijmegen, though he lives
in the Midlands, UK.
He's on holiday right now.
Canary islands.
Very nice there over Christmas & New Year, apparently, sunny, warm.
Very pleasant.

Did I mention how much I HATE HIM??

Last night Boet, Hans & I went to Nijmegen to see an Ice Hockey match
(Nijmegen vs Amsterdam).
A lot of fun!
Trying to take pictures of these guys whizzing up and down the ice is
neigh-on impossible!
Still trawling through a couple of hundred shots to find the one of two
reasonable ones.

Oh Viewty, You Beauty!

Look what Santa's little helper brought to my door today!
Better late than never.
It's beautifully packaged, tres chic.
Thank you LG Nederland, I'll get onto configuring the Email etc tomorrow,
stuff to do tonight, though the internet connection worked right out of the
So far very impressed, touch screen worked great using fingers and thumbs,
there's a satisfying little "buzz" when you "press" a key, and everything's
in a pretty logical order in the menu's.
One of the first things I tried was the 120 fps slow-motion film function
(it records straight to DivX which is great too) and the result was amazing!
I'll get some footage on Moblog asp.
I'm off to a darkened room now for a little play, 'scuse me.
