Crazy Days Camera

Today was Beadle Days in Madison, which used to be called Crazy Days, but since it's DSU's 125th anniversary, we changed the name. The day included a Dog Expo, the Madison Area Arts Council's Art in the Park, a Dakota Jam rock concert, and a downtown merchants sidewalk sale. Perhaps you note the altered quality of the photos. Radio Shack was selling some tiny digital cameras for ten bucks apiece, so I bought one. It takes pictures! You can identify people in the pictures! It's tiny! For the record, it's a DigiGR8, capable of taking 300K pixel photos, comes with its own software, lanyard, and cord. It will even take video and serve as a webcam. But you get what you pay for.
That's all I have to say about that, for now. It may turn out to be fun.
The day also included a 10K, a 5K, a mile race, and a kids run. First on the bill, at 8:00am, was the 10K, and yours truly found himself at the starting line. 52 minutes later, my race was over and it was 89 degrees. OUCH! I'm recovering. Thank you, air-conditioner! Hang in there! As I write it's about 93 degrees, coming up on 9:00pm.
I look forward to the end of the heat wave that the entire midwest has been suffering from. Mom said was 111 degrees in Pierre today.
