Title: Photos from Lakeland Rally 1/25/18
Post by: SeilerBird on January 25, 2018, 03:07:52 PM
And a splendid time was had by all. Jane and Will were sorely missed and we all hope his doing better. We all pigged out and badmouthed all who did not attend.

Sorry I missed it, I've been waiting all year for that.  Jane insists I follow the Docs orders...go figure!  I knew I was going to be sore today when I saw the Doctor pick up a hammer and slid a 2 X 6 under my back just to put the port in my chest...he said to the nurse "watch this"

I had a great time. Bobby was not happy about missing it and will make every effort to be there for the 4th rally.

It's Captain Chris; She is usually at the helm or our boat and our coach  ;)

Yes she does  ;)

The first pic was taken at Chris' induction as Commodore of our boat club. The second pic was taken aboard our prior (small) 34 foot Sea Ray.

I'll post my pictures tomorrow. - Hopefully.

Had a good time and it was a pleasure to met all that were there.

The internet has been down at this park, off and on for 5 days or so.

I have to resize the images before I can post them.

Getting late now so will work on them tomorrow.

Tom,

Whatever your rank, I do thank you for the photos.  I will now make a better attempt at naming my photos on Quartzsite thread as the labels are helpful.

 Oh boy something else for this tired old mind to recall.

Betty

You are welcome Betty. I label the photos not only for the forum members but for myself as well. Makes it much easier to find a photo when they are properly described.

This was my first lunch with members of the forum.

I know many of you are too far away to make it or had other plans. Last year I was in MI so it would have been a long haul to make it.  ;D

I took some pictures and they are as follows.

The first one is when I got there and it also is the reason for the first 3 letters of my user name - in case anyone wondered.

The second one is of some of the candy I made to pass out at the Rally.

The forth is of the group with their user names and real names.


The third one is why I think it's usually better to setup a TRIPOD even if someone else is going to push the button for a group photo.
I don't know if anyone under 30 - 35 years old has never used any camera except what is on a cell phone or not. But it seems to me
that many people don't realize that when you have to push down on a button you need to do that without moving the camera.
But very often they must not get that point as with most cell phone cameras you push towards the screen and not down.
You can see the result of the group shot that the young person took is not up to standard - at least not my standards....

Good thing he took one or more with Tom's Phone as I assume he has much more experience with that type of camera.   :o

Very nice photos Karl. My camera has a button to click, not push towards the screen or down, you just click it. I have never had anyone else take a blurry photo with this camera. Thank you for the candy, hope to see you next year.

Thanks, it's always fun seeing pictures of forum members getting together. Regrettably, we don't get to many rallies nowadays, but have managed to hook up with individual forum members in the last year.

On my Iphone any of the volume keys will also act as a shutter to take photo. I never touch the screen even though the button is there to do so. Helps keep camera still.

On my last camera is could be controlled by voice. Say 'click' and it takes a photo.

I need to apologize to Licille - Rene's wife as I labeled her wrong and When I Tried to modify the post it would not let me
remove the attachment so I could redo the file with her real name above her.  Sorry.  If a Moderator can remove it I will redo the file.

Tom - like I said before I had someone use my cell phone to take a picture and it was blurry too so maybe it's just a general
miss understanding that you have to hold a phone or camera still as much as possible especially under low lighting situations
like inside a building vs. outside in bright sunlight.  Holding it still will get you the sharpest picture possible - Oh well Next time I'll
try to remember to bring IN my tripod which was on my bike.  I carry it to do self portraits when no one else is around.  ;D

Glad you liked the candy.

I removed the image. You could just reply with the new image. If you wish, I could add it to your original message.

Thanks Karl. The candy was great. I'm just glad it was low cal candy.  :)) :)) :))

I'm glad everyone, so far, liked the candy - guess that means I will have to bring more next year?

I can't say how low cal they are but there is no Cholesterol in them and they do have some protein with the nuts.
Also I make them using a number of dark chocolates which are supposed to be better for us.
I enjoy giving them away so I don't eat the whole batch.

Thanks Tom for replacing the image.  Send me your address and I'll send you some candy so you can become a taste tester too.

Was nice to meet everyone and the food was good. 

If anyone wanted to set up another meet and greet before the end of March - that way we wouldn't have to wait for another year to pass.
A different place and/or city (or the same place) would be fine with me. 
Maybe we could post another date and/or place and if we got more than say 6 - 8 new people to say yes then it would be worth it in my book.
If no new people agreed to show up then we could cancel the date.  Anyone up for that?

I would be in favor if we could hold one here in Saint Cloud. There is a great restaurant here called Boggy Creek Resort.

   I'm game for it depending on my condition at the time. Nothing says it has to be once a year.
