My Picture

I read an article today that shocked me and saddened me immensely. Polaroid have decided to close their plants and stop making the instant Polaroid camera. Due to a slump in sales and the increase of digital camera sale they are no longer viable to make. I was so disappointed because I think there is nothing cooled than old Polaroids. I have never owner a instant Polaroid which makes it even worse but I think I might have to make a purchase off eBay to get one. Digital photos all cool but nothing beats a hard copy. I know its old fashioned and obviously not the feasible thing to make anymore but I still think they are awesome.

Work today was work and everything else was about the same. This week is going to be a bit hectic though because I am starting my lessons to get my HR truck license. I don't know how I will go because the truck I will be driving has a Road Ranger style gearbox in it and I have never driven anything like it but I will see how I go. My first lesson is Wednesday so wish me luck. Once I get my HR license I can drive any tandem axle truck and after a year on that license I can get my HA which means I can drive anything but a road train. Its all pretty crazy. In a year I will be able to drive any vehicle under 70 tonne! Still feel safe on the road??? Lol.

I had an old Polaroid camera - I think I still have it. I will check my closet to make sure. If so, I'll send it to you for free if you pay the postage from the USA to Oz (which could be quite a tidy sum now that they only have airmail, no more boat mail). Contact me at my blog if you are interested!
