The grapevine has it the camera has reached central Canada via totally exhausted dog sled puppies. B-man will wait for a break in the ice storms and do his thing.

Now what has happened to Camera 4?

Yes, camera 5 arrived here last week while I was on vacation. I'll get my shot done in a day or so and will ship it off by week's end. Pagan chicken recipe to follow:p

Shot taken and the camera will be off to Walter23 tomorrow.

Breast of Chicken Agenteuil

(a cold dish that is great for warm spring days)

4 chicken breasts, halved, skinned and boned
2 cups dry white wine
1/2 tsp. dried tarragon leaves
1 bunch asparagus
1tsp salt

sauce:
1 cup mayonnaise
2 tbsp sour cream

8-10 radishes, washed and sliced

1. In large skillet combine wine, tarragon and salt. Add chicken breasts. Bring to boiling, reduce heat and simmer, uncovered 10 minutes, turning once.
2. Remove chicken breasts and liquid to shallow dish. Refrigerate, covered for at least 2 hours
3. Cook asparagus to desired tenderness. (I use the microwave for about 3-4 minutes)
4. Make sauce: in small bowl combine mayo and sour cream, mixing well
5. Just prior to serving: remove chicken breasts from liquid. Spread thick layer of sauce on each chicken breast. Arrange on platter, decorate with sliced radishes. Arrange asparagus alongside chicken on platter. Serve.

Drink remaining white wine. ;)

Oops! I just confused #4 with #5!

Glad to hear both are progressing - although it does seem like 5 will land before 4!

Now to PM tim with my correction! :o;)

Cool. How do I get the next person's address? I haven't been following this thread closely.

I thought you knew premonition was one of the requirements for signing up. It's worked so far...

You will find a packet in with the camera. It will have extra batteries in case those in the camera go belly up. It also has a list with names and addresses of everyone on the circuit. Find your name, the next one down is the the person you send it to. In your case, it's Ms. Nelson.

You will see. Make sure the packet is sent to the next person with the camera... and remember to turn it OFF.

Now go out and take a nice picture for us.

Camera received today. Just waiting on the weather (should clear up tomorrow) and then it'll be on its way again.

Oh man, I'm an idiot. I fired off three shots thinking it was just autofocusing and not actually firing. FYI, the viewfinder zooms in / out a bit when the camera takes its shot. It's been awhile since I used an automatic P&S camera - my skills with them just aren't what they used to be :)

I'll throw a fresh roll of FP4+ in the box in case the roll runs out.

Should get it mailed tomorrow.

Don't sweat the small stuff. Remember to turn the camera OFF. If the camera gets to me with no more pitchers, I have your address. I'll send my brother Guido to pay you a vis....

Fergot, those were the lines for the Community Playhouse last month...

That is a 36 pitcher roll of film, the count of particiapants is 25. I set it up that way to allow for accidents.

The camera is crossing the border agin. !

The probability of horses heads in any Irish persons bed is very small, but not a negative number. The number of individuals named Guido is much higher say in Italy, hence the probability goes up.


Pagan horses head recipes?

It's under control. I have written to Walter23 and have a timeline. Those cross border times can be killers. I would anticipate return in a couple of days.

Can you tell from my language I am at work?

Sorry guys, camera got caught up in a move. It's in the post. I put a cyanotype print in for the next person to get it (Imn). Careful opening the box, it's right on top (though sandwiched in cardboard).

I think Walter may be reading "lmn" as "Imn"
