New camera!! New bed!! New friend!!

Been busy the past few days, taking time to post the news!! I got my new tulip poplar bed frame all assembled and in the trailer..looks good, but lost some floor space....but it will be worth it! Also, my new 8" thick king koil mattress arrived Friday morning, all compressed and rolled up into what looked like a big duffel bag, and after letting it de-compress over the weekend, I placed it on the new wood frame, and it looks great!! Feels great too! Laying on it now as I type this, and its extremely comfortable! Think I will be sleeping very well starting tonight!

My new camera arrived this morning as well!! A Kodak EasyShare Max Z990 with a 30X zoom!! Can't wait to get some pics posted, but I need help with that.....for some reason, I just can't get them to upload....but, I have a new friend due in here this week who is a real whiz at computers, and in exchange for my supplying her a full hook-up site, heres hoping she will educate me on how to properly upload pics to my blog!

Her name is Charlene Swankie, and she is travelling the country living in her Chevy Express cargo van. She is on a quest to kayak all 50 states! Here is the link to her and her adventures are outlined there.....hopefully, she will be gracious enough to help educate me on posting pics to my blog!!

I'm still alive and kicking, just sort of stalled at posting!! Lots going camera is on its way which will hopefully allow me to take some great pics, and with the 30x zoom it definitely should! New bed frame has arrived, (yet to be assembled!) plus a new 8" memory foam mattress!! After sleeping the past year on a 2" thick pad on a chaise lounge narrower than a twin bed, this new set-up should throw me into sleep heaven!!

Cooling off here in southern New Mexico, and last night I brought out my new electric blankie from, slept SOOOOOOOOOOOOO good!! And when you throw in the ear plugs I got from a guy on Ebay, the steady blasts of train whistles from Union Pacific did not even faze me!!

When the new camera arrives, will post some pics of before and after of my sleep chamber!! Some of you will likely say---how on earth did he sleep on THAT!!!!!!!! Hey, when you're tired, you can sleep on most anything!

Stand by, more coming real soon.............
