amish



today we were in amish country ... it was lovely ... peaceful ... with quaint shops in the village ...

but guess what ... my camera seems to be eating batteries???? i don't know if it IS the camera or the rechargeables ... i bought some new rechargeables - i'm hoping that will work ...

just a quick note ... to let you guys know i am enjoying myself ... *smile* ... and leo and the fearless feline are fine too!!!

Dear Saija..This picture almost looks like what we would see in Kitchener.

I remember when we lived in Manitoba that there were quite a few Hudderites.
We would spend hours walking in their flat fields and never get bored!
Although one time my two brothers, age 7 and 8, I guess at that time not only got bored, but hot too.The 8 year old took off his little shirt and shorts, seeing as they were just two boys alone.
Well didn't that 7 year old little scamp grab all the 8 years old's clothes and run home with them!! Ha!!
Teddy, the older brother had to wait until after dark and make his way home the best way he knew how! Ha..

Maybe you better get Duracell rechargable batteries for your camera Saija.They last a long time.
Even so though, you should travel with about a dozen batteries..Nothing worse than running out of power when you are just about to take a nice picture!

Hope you continue to have a good time!!...Love Terry

Where are you traveling? I guess I must have missed where you are going. Is Leo with you? I have been gone so must have missed out. Sorry about your camera. We have one with a large rechargeable battery. We only have to buy one about every 2 years. Our camera is a Sony Cyber Shot. Hope you get yours charged up and it stays.. Have a great time.

Yep--I have that trouble too--I stay with the duracell rechargeables usually--and just keep a set charged up all the time. But my daughter also turned me on to LITHIUM for just regular batteries--they really do work better and longer in the camera. Good for about 500 shots, looking at them a thousand times in the camera over and over, downloading into computer.

Ahhhh, Amish country--love it!

Saija said...

hey guys ... well the camera is BETTER cause i have different rechargeables now ... the ones that i had (brand new - 2 sets of them) didn't hold a charge ... grrrr ... but now things are great - we did Niagara Falls ... beauty! well the steaks are on, i just stole away for a sec ... " having a good time, wish you were here " ... :o) (just talked to leo, he is doing fine at home - he says he misses me tho' )
