Thank you, No Sheep Pal

A lovely package arrived awhile back. I think it was right before the 4th of July and our second trip to the shore for this Summer. It was a busy time and I have not been up to my usual tricks on the PC since. Poor excuse I know.

Anyway, did I mention it is such a lovely package from my No Sheep For You Pal? See in the photo, I got two skeins of Bouton d'Or New Bamboo (color 078), which I already have on needles. I'm making a pair of baby socks as a gift for my friend, A. Along with the yarn I got ladybug tissues and a little ladybug handwritten note.
Thanks again, No Sheep Pal.

Rabbit, Rabbit, Rabbit!

On this the first of July, I remembered to say Rabbit, Rabbit, Rabbit.

On researching why I am getting the "err" message on my Nikon D50, I found this and this to be most helpful. I've tryed a different memory card, a fully charged battery, removing and replacing the lens and none of those worked. Besides Jonathan Ryan suggests if the message has appeared for a third time, as mine has, it is time to return the camera. I only hope my husband saved the purchase receipt.
