I was at Costco the other day and noticed they're having a sale on the Canon Power Shot camera. For only $249 you get the camera, a case and an 8-gig SD card! I went home and rationally explained that incredible value to my wife: "PLEEEASE! Oh please, please, pease!!!"

It's all I get for Christmas, she said. She then tried to take it from me to save for Christmas. No way, I said. I'm a grown man... I can have it NOW!

If you want one, hurry! The sale is only through Nov. 1.

I've been taking pictures of everything in my house and here at the studio. I'll share some with you when I can capture a birdie or something.
