50th post

I am so far behind in my blog it isn’t even funny. My goal is to get to 200 blogs yet at the rate I’m going it will take me two years to get there. I think I need to set a reminder on my iPhone calendar to blog at least every other day. Been traveling on some photo shoots recently. I’ve got to go to a morning networking group I attend each Thursday but when I get back in the office tomorrow afternoon, I will post a much more detailed blog with photos. Big thunderstorms headed our way tonight. We had them early this morning and I slept right through them.

47th Post

Had a nice weekend, and it sure seems sad to see it end so quickly.

I went and changed out our accounts for our iPhones from at&t to Sprint, because it would save us approximately over $84 a month.  That adds up to a very hefty savings for our budget and the Davis Mansion.  ha ha ha !!

So it took over an hour to change over from one provider to the other, but we (my wife and I) have the new iPhone 4s and I’m now spending another couple of hours to transfer everything over from my old iPhone to the new one.  The old one was a 3G model and my model was about to die, so I’m really pleased with the new phones.  Just wish it didn’t have to take so long to transfer all my songs, games and apps over to the new phone.

I’ve also VERY anxious to try out the new Siri feature on the iPhone.  I think I’ll be using that service a lot.  In fact, I already used it while I was in the Sprint story to remind me of an upcoming birthday for a friend of mine.  I ALWAYS forget my friend’s birthday in May and I feel bad about it; fortunately for me, just as the new iPhone was getting set up, she texted me.  So I immediately went into Siri and had a reminder put in place for me.  I’m sure there will be a ton of things I can get Siri to do for me, I’m really excited about that.

Looking forward to a good work week, I tentatively have a aircraft shoot for Tuesday, it will be a Canadair Challenger 604 model, a little bit larger jet than I’ve photographed the past couple of sessions, so I am thankful about that.  The larger the plane, the more room I have to move around in it.  And I’m a big guy.  I just hope it doesn’t rain that day.  It only shows a 30% chance of rain, so I hope the “weather guessers” get that one right.  Not a lot of fun to photograph a jet out on a wet ramp.

It is my wish that all of you that read my blog have a GREAT day today and I hope you have a WONDERFUL week, as well.

 

Trip to Florida

I took a very quick trip to Florida on Monday and will be writing an article about it in the very near future.  I flew with an organization that does Angel Wings flights for people who are needing to travel for medical treatment.  We picked up two passengers in Destin, FL who needed treatment at M.D. Anderson Hospital in Houston, TX.

After hearing the stories of these two patients who have cancer, I can certainly count my blessings.  If you ever get down and depressed thinking your life isn’t going well, just walk up and down the hallway of your local hospital.  You’ll start feeling better right away, that you aren’t sick and in a hospital room.

Sorry for such a short post, just wanted to publish a quick update on what’s been going on in my life.
