    That's a nice portrait. How's Rusty doing? Was it epilepsy? Is he on meds?

    The vet supplied us with some "nutritional tranquilizers" which are a preliminary solution. Rusty tends to be quite attached to me and nervously hunts through the entire house, when I am not there. Right after Thanksgiving, he had three seizures within 36-hours. It made me pretty nervous, because there was no real excitement to trigger them. He had some different kinds of food, after Turkey-Day, so it could have just been some weird food reaction. Anyway, after those ... I started the NTs on a daily basis and have had no re-occurances with him.

    Personally, I can live without all the excitement, as so can he. I suppose the "wait and see" attitude will just have to be in play for the holidays. Thank you for asking. I believe he is a lot more comfortable in our home compared to that "awful life" he had before we took him in.

    Merry Christmas to one and all, from "Rusty"

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    Angry Let's have some Christmas cheer!

    Folks, we are three days away from Christmas ... and you have NOTHING to post? What? The camera's not workin'? Lenses frosted up?

    Something about this is just not right ...

    (Thanks for your contributions to the cause, Frank)

    If everyone just posted one image ... why, we'd have at least ... TWO!

    Thumbs up Lights, camera ... reaction!

    Turn the camera on your home ... and the mountain of lights you placed upon it, causing the shuttle astronauts to be confused when returning to Earth.

    Right there, around the South Carolina coast ...

    As this is in the Sony thread and not the general gallery area, you are reducing participants. Perhaps you wanted it that way, as other fanclubs have their own thread, too (including Pentax :-)

    No, people are aware of the galleries ... and I would support submissions there, of course. I just am trying to get some specific participation from the SONY bunch, for their own edification.

    The posts are waiting, gang ...

    Thumbs up Getting it done!

    Here's an idea: Anyone got severe images of the pre-Christmas "nightmare" of preparation for the event? I know it can be a complete mess, because it is, darn near every year, here, as we entertain family ... yep EVERY year, for the past 20!

    Ah heck ... the Midwest is getting a Christmas-clobbering, this year. Can you imagine an inch of rain, in Chicago ... in the winter? It is making travel absolutely ... hell on wheels, literally. Hey ... no wonder we do the family entertaining, eh? There is some serious consideration involved in this.

    BTW: Could you put this lens under my tree?

    christmas has really sneaked up on me this year.
    The new TV, replacing the one that went toes up, prompted me to build an HTPC, a job I've put off for a long time and a project which gave me a few more hassles than expected. Still all done now and just in the nick of time.
    So no new Christmas Photo this year, but the sentiment remains the same ....

    HAPPY CHRISTMAS AND COMPLIMENTS OF THE SEASON TO ONE AND ALL!
