I work up this morning to the cold hard reality that I am a year older and not necessarily a year wiser. Â Of course I was awoken early because Wendy, Mark, and Oliver all wanted to give me a birthday gift before the boys went off to school.
Wendy gave me a newÂ Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 APO DG Macro Autofocus Lens for my DSLR.
I have wanted a carbon fibre travel tripod for a while but the cost has always stopped me out. Â This is an exact copy of the Sirui T-025x travel tripod which is three times the cost. Â Amazon must be getting unbranded ones from the same factory. Â Bad for Sirui, good for me.
I also was given an AmazonBasics camera bagÂ by OliverÂ because with some lens acquisitions lately, my bag is overflowing with gear.
Iâ€™ll have to see how it stands up but the price on this bag is amazing.
Oliver also gave me a Bo Jackson football card that I have wanted since it came out in 1990.
Iâ€™ll get a protective case for it today keep it with my small collection of meaningful to me but otherwise worthless collector cards.
