New Furniture

Finally! We found a couple of chairs and couch for the new house. We have been looking for weeks.

The search can be compared to Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Too hard, too soft and just right. Actually, there were other considerations like, too tall, too wide and most importantly, too expensive.

We ended up a Sofa Mart (which is part of Furniture Row). If you are not familiar with Furniture Row, the store is like a little strip mall and are all connected inside. The stores include Oak Expressions, Sofa Mart, Denver Mattress and Paul’s TV. One stop shopping. Kind of interesting that Sofa Mart was the first place that we looked at.

The best part is that the salesman don’t bother you. No pressure. However, they are always willing to help and and are readily available when needed. One thing that is cool is that you can change the material on virtually all of the sofas and chairs for no additional cost. The lead time only increases by a couple of days. We ended up going with the “stock colors” and will be anticipating delivery this Monday (November 3rd). Cool

Here are a few pictures of the new stuff. Please keep in mind that Michelle will most likely have us (me) move them around this weekend. I have no problem moving the stuff but I know that it will just end up where we started.

Oh well, if it makes her happy…..


In case you haven’t seen my previous posts, here are few pictures of the living room in the “before” stage. You will notice that the living room is lacking the couch and a couple of uncomfortable chairs. The couch is in the basement (see previous post) and the chairs are in my study. It seems that my study is a catch all for crap without a home.












And here is the “after” shots:








Nice couch!

Rocky Mountain Arsenal and National Wildlife Refuge - Part Deux

 Yes, I bought a new camera.  The new and improved Fuji XT-4.  The XT-4 is FAR superior than it's predecessor (XT-3) in all aspects.   You can blame Michelle for converting me to Fuji. Now, I must say, I didn't' blatantly spend money on this camera without having a plan. I sold my Nikon Z6 and associated lenses which more than paid for the Fuji.  I can honestly say that I feel good about buying the new camera.  The only regret that I have is that I didn't ask for more money on the Fuji "kit lenses" that Michelle and I had (27mm).  Fuji has NO stock on any of their lenses and I could have made a killing on the lens.  They both sold within minutes of posting them on eBay.  Dammit! So, you may be asking yourself what the fuck that this has to do with the RMANWR?  A test drive on the new camera.  Michelle was kind enough to let me "borrow" her Fuji 100-400mm lens.  Possession is 9/10 of the law.  It is now my possession.   The Fuji 100-400mm is far super

Thank You For The Smoke (California)! Wyoming Sucked

Another attempt at Astrophotography gone up in smoke.   Thank you California for the ruining our Wyoming weekend.  Don't worry, we will be visiting soon and will definitely leave a mark on your ass. The smoke was so bad in Wyoming.  Thick, grey and disgusting. Of course, this didn't stop people from going to one of our favorite spots in Wyoming.  Medicine Bow National Forest.   We dressed for 60 degree weather.  We didn't expect 35 degree weather with fog and blustery wind.  Glad we packed additional clothes (hats, gloves, scarfs etc). I am ahead of myself.  The day excursion to Medicine Bow was the second day.   We spent the first day at the Wyoming Territorial Prison to visit relatives.  Ha...the prison is now a park.  The prison's most famous prisoner was Butch Cassidy.  The only prison that Butch was incarcerated in.  Pretty good for career criminal. We spent most of the day at the prison.  Historical Prisons will the only ones that I will visit.  My mother raised m

Denver Zoo (New Lens Test)

 Michelle got tired of me asking if I could use her Fuji 100-400mm lens.  Really?  It's her damn fault for talking me into buying the new Fuji XT-4 in the first place... bitch. I found it on sale at Mike's Camera and with the rebate and free stuff they provided, it was hard to pass it up. Since fall is upon us, bird watching is pretty much out as they have mostly migrated to warmer climates.  Well, that is except for the ones at the Denver Zoo.  Camera, new lens and COVID Masks in hand, we headed out to the zoo. Well, as you can see, there are more than just birds there. The Fuji Lens blows my old Leica (Panasonic) 100-400mm out of the water.  BIG TIME.  The Fuji is sharp in the entire focal range.  A bit more pricier but the image quality speaks for itself.
