Delusional? That's not what the voices tell me!
I think I have some of the Mexican blanket material I used to cover Rufus' seat:
Problem is...well, it's lacking in those "extra items." But who's counting.
As long as I'm typing, I'll mention that yesterday, as I came home from the track, both cameras (40D and 7D) were baptized in Coca-Cola when the bottom of a drink cup just up and fell out, drenching both the 40D and the 7D. Do I know how to have fun or what?
I spent a long time cleaning both of 'em. I also had to remove the clock (CMOS) battery and let 'em sit for a coupla hours before either one showed signs of life. But as of noon o'clock Sunday, both of 'em are working at about 95 percent. I still need to work with both of 'em a bit more before I feel all warm and fuzzy about 'em (hell, I could feel that way by wrapping myself in summa that upholstery material and then "soiling my dainties" so to speak.
Then I had a toilet (speakin of soiling one's dainties) decide that it didn't wanna shut off. As a result, I had water coming thru the ceiling of my studio room. I think I've taken care of most of that without any structural damage (I was able to drain it by lancing the bubble that was forming and getting the water out quickly.) Time will tell on that one.
There were several other little "shoot yerself in the foot" deals to the point where I started wondering if someone was trying to tell me something. As a result of some prayer and mediation about that, I decided to stay home from the track and try to catch up on other stuff. Good thing. The wind is trying to relocate Tooele, Utah to southern Idaho. According to one of the other "usual suspect" track photogs at Miller's, the wind is so bad at the track that he can't even hold the camera still enough to get more than a coupla lucky shots now and then. It's the Ferrari Challenge (one of only 2 stops in the US thid year) and I really wanted to get some shots of the Ferrari 599 GTBs, since I didn't see 'em run yesterday. However, I think discretion is the better part of valor today. I've got enough half-finished projects that it would be nice to get one or two of 'em wrapped up.
I'm gonna post a few shots from yesterday in the appropriate group. In the meantime, Doc...those voices keep tellin me that not only am I not delusional but that I need more tinfoil in my hat. There's a project I can handle.
