I expect BUncle will gravely conduct an exorcism to banish these puns.

We finished the path.  Rather the kids did while I was working OT over the weekend. 



Of note, this path is 5' closer to the house than it used to be.  This means more room for pumpkin patch to the right, and a need for a new fence...

The bridge of death was replaced by the ancient path of death. 



Anywho, Pumpkin futures contract signed.  That's one less thing to worry about this year...

Yes.  Pinky seems to have something of a fetish...

Yeah, I noticed that too. It sorta seemed that way at the time, but I rarely remembered the gags from one week to the next.

So, belly's been acting up this week. 

We had a couple days of bad eating in part due to celebrating Mother's Day, but it's been getting steadily worse from there. 

Got reading up, known side effect of the allergy meds I take is increased gallbladder problems. 

So...I can breath or I can eat, but I can't do both... 

I don't know if we have any of the alternate allergy meds.

So, been doing digging.

As far back as 2012, I have been keeping an eye on the pentax K-30. 

It remains the absolute top of the line low light camera.  It also contains most of the modifications my K-10 has to work with the manual lenses, and a few tech features I presently lack.  Plus simultaneously would allow me to upgrade to automagic D lenses. 

Downside is it wouldn't have wifi and still would require the photoshop processing I currently have to do where the newer ones wouldn't. 

Presently priced around $200.   Definitely on the birthday/christmas possibility list. 

So been digging more because I over-analyze these things.  The reason the K-30's are dropping like a rock is they've discovered a flaw in them.  The autofocus mechanism becomes magnetized over time rendering it inoperable.  So...while a K-30 is still on the list as the best low light camera ever built, and my manual lenses would render the flaw inconsequential, it's useless to me as a gateway to automagic stuff for vacations. 

Furthermore, this flaw extends to a whole line, eliminating the K-50, K-S1 and K-S2 options as well.  That last one is particularly painful.

SO...

That brings my options to the K-5, K-5 II, K-5 IIs, K-3, and pie in the sky K-3 II.  Technically the KP is an option, but I'm not interested. 

K-5 ~300
K-5 II ~350
K-5 IIs ~400
K-3  ~450
K-3 II ~700

Uno-wise Low light quality goes down the further down you go on this list.  The K-5 is about even with Vera though.  The K-3, most notably would add wifi ability. 

So, $200 for a K30 upgrade to Vera, or $300 for something the kids can use.
