Monday through Sunday, August 1-7, 2022—Pickleball and a Photography Exposition

Yet another hot and humid week! We venture out early mornings and stay in the rest of the day. It’s getting a little tiresome being housebound. Consequently, there is little to report.

Kay continued her sports this week, playing pickleball Monday and Tuesday, golf on Wednesday, and pickleball again on Thursday. There is marked improvement in her games, both pickleball and golf; she’s amazing.

I played pickleball only on Monday and Wednesday, and came home drenched with perspiration both mornings. Bedford Camera and Video hosted Photo Expo 2022 in Little Rock Friday and Saturday, with enough speakers and vendors to whet any photographer’s appetite. Taking advantage of trade-in offers, sales, and a sales tax free weekend, I completed the transition from Canon to Sony. So it’s been an Argus C3 in the early 1960s, Minolta SR101 in the 1970s, Nikons in the 1980s, then various digital point and shoot cameras in the 1990s and early 2000s, Canon in the mid 2000s through 2019, and now Sony—quite a journey.

After church on Sunday, we had brunch at the Desoto Club in Hot Springs Village. Not only was it prohibitively expensive, it was also the worst buffet I’ve experienced. After two meals, dinner and Sunday brunch, I do not recommend it, and likely won’t return.

Towards the end of the week, I did make it out to the back “yard” for a few photos.
