Guess Who Got a Camcorder For Christmas?



And yes, I did remember to make a wish!

Actually, we all do between christmas and New Year, we write it down and hang it on the tree. Mine is to take Jake for a walk on the beach with all the family. Sam's is to have his dad and I take him out for a walk after dark around our neighbourhood, to spot all the trees and Christmas house decorations. Matt has decided we all should go out for a Pub lunch (rolling eyes).. and so on, and so forth.

Guess I won't be around much for the next few days. Hope you and yours are also having a great holiday.

Cuckoo said...

Aha !!

"I absolutely hate, hate, hate my voice on tape.."
Who is asking you to listen to it, Carol ? Leave that to us. We will somehow manage to it without making any faces. :)

Shrinky said...

Gee Cuckoo, you are ALL heart (giggle).

Carol said...

The happiest and merriest of New Years to you and your gang, Carol!

Shrinky said...

Thank you Carol, we've had a wonderful Christmas, I hope you have too.

Fletch said...

Oh, oh!

Belated Birthday Greetings.

I feel quite a dumb@ss for missing it. The clues were all there.

Won't forget next year. Honest!

Shrinky said...

Aw Fletch, truth be told I'm happy to forget ALL future birthdays and to just stick with 49 (smile).

Akelamalu said...

I hope you had a great birthday and a great Christmas! :)

Pat Houseworth said...

Live action shots from the island? Great....

As far as hating your voice...heck I was a radio/tv broadcaster full, then part time for over 25 years....I never go used to hearing my voice, so don't feel like the Long Ranger, nobody likes there voice recorded.

Pat Houseworth said...

of course that should be "GOT used" and Their not there...must be that Holiday Hangover?

;)

Les Becker said...

Argh! It won't load for me! Is it because I'm Canadian?! I come from a long line of Loyalists, you know!

Hmph!

Shrinky said...

I did Akelamalu, I did indeed (spoiled rotten, so I was) - hope yours was just as good?

Oh Pat, I can see you have certainly had a good Christmas then? And I will try to take some comfort in those words of experience.. after all, there is no way you would have last twenty-five days, let alone years, if everyone agreed with your own opinion of your voice. Smile.

Shrinky said...

I'll let you into a secret Les, I can't view it either, my computer stubbornly refuses to let any ActiveX programme through my firewall. I have posted it directly from flickr to blogger, only way I could manage it. Besides, truth be told - you 'aint really missing much hon.

Marty said...

This was a very fun post - you look great! Happy Birthday!!

Shrinky said...

Cheers hon. Dim lights, or better still, candle-light Marty, it helps gloss over the wrinkles!

Bart said...

Congrats.

Now don't you dare do with it what I've planned to do with mine...:D

Scott from Oregon said...

And A Merry Happy Birthday Christmas to you shrinky!!

"OK, you can switch off now..."

Very cute...

CHEWY said...

Wheeee! This is so much fun to see you in action. I like your accented voice. Are you turning into a computer techie? (giggle) The evening walk to view the lights sounds delightful.

CHEWY said...

Happy Birthmas!

*Goddess* said...

A budding director!

I wanted one a camcorder so badly and then when I got my camera with camcorder capabilities, I had no idea what to tape..LOL!

Happy Birthday!

Fireblossom said...

LOL @ Chewy and "Birthmas."

You look beautiful, Shrinky, just gorgeous, with that million dollar smile of yours.

PS--I hate you LOL

QUASAR9 said...

Glad to see you are having fun

QUASAR9 said...

I too enjoy taking the kid(s) out for their first walk in the winter evenings, and seeing the houses lit-up in the dark night.

Love taking the dog for a walk early morning, first footprints on the crispy iced-up morning dew

Shrinky said...

Bart hon, it's too late!! (teehee)

Hey Scott, I had to say something before the daft kid ran out the battery.. (cringe)

Oh Chewy, I've just come back from the family walk on the beach - I finally dragge- er - drove the brood there, only to find.. I'd brought the camcorder and left the battery charging at home. BooHooSobWaaaaaaaaaH!!

I know Goddess, I come over as such a bossy cow, don't I? Thing is, they had already sung "happy Birthday once, if you listen real close, after I say "sing", you can hear my eldest mutter, "What, again??"

Well cheers Fireblossom, I love you too.. hmph!

Yes QUASAR9, those are the things that are priceless, captured moments that cost nothing but which are worth the earth. Smile.

CHEWY said...

Million Dollar Smile and a Nickel Memory.

What?

OW!

Mushy said...

Congratulations...memories in motion...can't beat that!

BTW...Brits sing about as good as us rebellious Colonists!

"sj, I absolutely hate, hate, hate my voice on tape - cringe."
Whatever on earth makes you think we are the least bit interested in your voice, Oh beautiful one (said with a lewd and lascivious tone!:) Roll that video!!!! LOL!

My wife is sitting in here knitting, occasionally putting her nose where it doesn't belong. "Make sure you tell that lady your bark is so far ahead of your bite that they've never met!!" Sigh.....

Happy Birthday, Merry Christmas, and blessings upon you all!!

Shrinky said...

Oiy Chewy, a girlie can off some folk, y'know (if only she could remember why..)!

Hi Mushy, yeah the family hate my new pressie already, but they 'aint seen nothing yet (evil grin).

Hahahaha, ah Dan, your missus has you well sussed, so she has. Hope you are enjoying the holidays hon, and give that good woman of yours a wave from me.

Maggie May said...

Belated Birthday greetings! That was quite impressive!
Hope you had a good Christmas and that the New Year will bring everything that you wish for.

Shrinky said...

Thanks, and the same to you Maggie May, welcome to my humble abode.
