Look how far he has come!

You may recall that this past Christmas my husband made a leap into the world of electronics when he received his first digital camera.  This is the man who only a couple of years ago didn’t even know how to turn a computer on let alone what LOL meant!  The boys and I are certified geeks and had pretty much given up on Mikey joining us in the world of technology, but believe it or not a miracle has occurred.  My husband now has his own laptop, knows how to surf the net, regularly sends text messages, expertly uses a GPS, and as you will soon see takes excellent digital photos.

Yesterday was his 50th birthday, so I guess that’s proof that you are never too old to learn.  I even had to buy him a “techy bag” for his birthday, so that he could keep all of his electronic gizmos and cords organized.  Back in February (see It’s A Miracle) I posted one of Mike’s first photos from his new camera from a walk I convinced him to take out behind our house to try out his camera.  Back them he still wasn’t showing a great deal of interest in his new camera.  Much to my amazement, he came home from work one day last week, having taken a whole bunch of photos in Goderich, Ontario, and asked me how to transfer them to his laptop.  As the photos appeared on the screen my mouth dropped – he took some amazing shots!

So, it’s official.  The boys and I have successfully transformed Mikey into a geek.  Yayyy!!! Here is a sampling of his photos.  They were taken near the Sifto Salt Mine where a tornado came in off of Lake Huron last year and devasted the town of Goderich.
