Birthday Comes Early
I mentioned it to my wife, noting that a spotting scope would be a swell birthday gift... and btw, perhaps it could come early given the blogshoot in W.Va this weekend. She came through in a big way. One of my commenters mentioned upon my posting about being told to buy a gun to piss off the local pravda that she was a real keeper. I'm gonna have to agree -- big time!
When I got it, my son wanted badly to play with it. So I put it on the tripod, fixed the power to the lowest setting, and focused it on a Christmas card across the room. My son put his eye to the eye piece and said, "I see my sister and my mommy." Which was pretty amazing considering they were upstairs. So this spotting scope is really, really good.
