The K5 is a big hit in Naples Fl
Lens: Pentax 18-250 Camera: K5 Photo Location: Naples Fl 
Posted By: charliezap, 03-14-2012, 05:36 PM

I thought that I would have plenty of time on the computer to get back to people on the forum while I was on vacation but boy was I wrong.It's been constant doing things and going places non stop.Last Sunday was the big pool party bash for March and I had some 8x10's made of the complex here and the association really liked them and offered to put them on display at the 50-50 raffle table for 20% of what was sold. 30 were sold at 10$ a pop that day and any residuals are all mine for further orders.Walgreen's did a great job on the enlargements for only $1.25 per enlargement with on line coupons.The collage I put together today and we'll see how that does.I hate to say it but when I get home in April life will be a little more relaxing.--charliezap

Hey, what a cool idea Charlie and they did turn out very well. It isn't easy to be retired at times, just too much work. Have fun buddy.

I thought that only a few people would be interested Bob but I was sure surprised at the interest.--charliezap

Charlie, what is it about the word RETIREMENT that you don't understand? VACATION also seems to be a difficult concept for you. Maybe it is your age. Glad to hear you had a good time and managed to make a little money though.

I think that makes you a pro Charlie... it won't be long before I'm dropping your name all over the place... 'I knew him back when he was a nobody."

I think Susan that more trips are going to be needed before I get the hang of this Retirement aspect of life and leisure.--charliezap

The great thing about retirement is you have control of how busy you want to be (Uhh, most of the time anyway)
Great idea by the way!

Good job Charlie, glad that you are having fun. I retired almost 15 years ago and right now I wouldn't have time to go to work even if I wanted to. (Not that I'm complaining)
