On a tease from Zeke ~ 10/29

Tanita BC-1000 GroupI do not know that Id even be making this post except that a friend [remember Zeke] and reader of this blog made a statement regarding a special item he received today.

I didn’t get very good images of the new toy… I was going for a true “Jim Artis” effect and posting but, alas, it isn’t meant to be… The new toy is simply delivery of the new Blackberry Storm 2. I’ve been waiting on them to get released for sale and they finally showed up on the Verizon website yesterday. I have it charging now…

I’d likely just said, probably in a comment to this post “that the scale arrived.” But, no, in the “Jim Artis” Effect, I decided to do a bit more. So, this post is for you.

The scale did not arrive until 5:15 p.m. EDT. When I’m not waiting for a package, I see the UPS [and FedEx] truck mid-day. When I’m waiting–it is at the end of the day. I have not done any setup. I just took the picture above and prepared this article. BTW, this friend is the purchaser of my Tanita IronMan BC-554. After getting my package, I immediately went to ship his and made it before the UPS pick-up—drop off at 5:30 p.m. Thanks to Zeke for giving my BC-554 a worthy home.

The marketing pictures I have seen of this scale, the BC-1000, do not do it justice. It is a quality piece of workmanship. The box [now holding Zeke’s scale] and the reading materials are well done. I know that I’ll enjoy using my new toy.

I’ve been busy the last couple of days working on a new project. I’ll tell you what it is later [it is now later]. I think it will be useful and fun. Should I ever cover an event like I did Maria’s Parker’s ride, I’ll use it.
