I ordered up some misting nozzles and fittings. I'm going to build a custom low pressure misting system for the deck in the backyard. It gets hot here in the summertime -

Panasonic Lumix DCM-FZ1000 digital camera with superfast auto focus so I can take photos of granddaughters like I used to with my old film SLR's when I was younger.
Tired of my slow old digital camera that snaps a shot about 1 1/2 seconds after pushing shutter. Excited to get it tomorrow!

Frustration with shutter lag was the main reason I bought a DSLR. Hope the Panasonic meets your expectations.

A Bluetooth remote. I have an older Iphone. I also have Amazon Prime. I have downloaded about 15 hours of music to the phone and use it off line in my car. The phone connects through a cable, and resides in the glove box between the seats. This should allow me to control the phone without having to dig it out.

PetSafe Electronic Pet Feeder

I have mice in my basement where the cat gets fed. I used to have an always-available dry food feeder. The exterminator said I was also feeding the mice. He recommended getting rid of it.

Since then I've been trying to feed the cat just enough to not leave any dry food around. Now she is constantly begging for food. I am hoping I can condition her to eat small portions throughout the day with this feeder.

Pack of 10 Xenon light bulbs for our outdoor landscape lights. Cost was $10. This compared with $5 each at Home Depot.

Let me know how it works as a substitute for you with your wife. If you deem it successful, I may follow. My GF is such a talker, she has admitted she doesnt even care if I understand the point sometimes. Just don't interrupt and let her talk, she says.

Anchovy stuffed Spanish olives. Got back from a great vacation in Spain and we've been eating our own version of tapas ever since.

Ordered surgical disposable face masks (for allergies) last night after dinner (July 3). They showed up today (July 4, 12:15 PM). All this for only $5.00. I do love Prime Mail.

Ever know a truly, extremely clumsy person? If not, then now you do know one, and that would be me.

I don't know why, but honestly I drop my computer mouse at least six times a day. I try not to but it flies out of my hand anyway and hurtles towards the floor. I think computer mice have minds of their own and are doggedly determined to engage in wild and crazy rough-and-tumble independent suicidal flight. Because of these insane mental issues apparently shared by all of them, I use a wired mouse so that I can retrieve it without having to peer under furniture and fish it out 6+ times a day.

Anyway, the four things I love about this Amazon Basics USB wired 3-button computer mouse are that:
1) it's wired
2) it's unbelievably sturdy and will last for almost a year under this type of mouse-abuse
3) it's a mouse. It's comfortably shaped and the buttons are predictable, and
4) it's cheap!

So, I ordered another one. $6.99 including Prime shipping, covered by my e-book settlement refund.

You may have already considered and rejected this idea, but you sound like an ideal candidate for a trackpad instead of a mouse.

You're right. Unfortunately I can't seem to operate a trackpad very well. I guess I have to be able to hurl it at the floor and abuse it before a device will give in and do what I want it to do. Just kidding but I really do hate trackpads.
