It is always hard to find Christmas presents for my adult children. But sometimes you run across something at Costco that just says “Buy Me”

My daughter, Melanie is quite an accomplished artist. Maybe this is what she would want for Christmas.

Maybe if I just post this here we won’t have to mail these out?

We never plan family photos and it is difficult to get us all together so scrounge we did and found photos of everyone that I could blend into a single photo and send to Costco for some ‘custom’ Christmas cards.

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!

Costco Equinox 10.4 Kayak

Every spring when I enter Costco I am tempted to buy one of these Equinox 10.4 Kayaks. I was able to resist the temptation in years past because I had no easy way to carry it in my convertible. Now that I have a regular car I might be able to fit it either inside the car or on the roof. I do notice that they lowered the price $50 from last year, so it is only $299 but it does not come with the foam block roof rack.

I have read a number of reviews online and am surprised how positive they are. My other reservation has been that I have been spoiled using long & narrow sea kayaks and this kayak is definitely wide. I guess I can always pass it down to the kids/grandkids if I decide to ‘upgrade’ down the road.

Will I be able to resist the temptation this year?

I was just in Costco and saw that they have Photoshop Elements for $49.99. If you don’t need all the bells and whistles of Photoshop, or don’t have a wad of $100 bills in your wallet, Photoshop Elements might be just what you need to tweak some of your photos.

Elements has many of the features of Photoshop that a photographer will need, including all the adjustments that come with Camera Raw. Either way, save $30 and buy yourself a Christmas present.
