Don't let that little sniff fool you, had I not been able to sell my
soul to Amazon in the way of a credit card purchase you would
find me in the depths of hell right about now.
Can I afford a new one? NO.
In fact I have no pride when it comes to cookbooks or cameras.NONE.
Will accept any and all donations fora camera. You bet.
Where's my back up camera you ask?
Oh I gave that away in a moment of pure generosity.
Do I wish I had it now? yeh...no. it was a good thing I did.
Do I wish I had the winning lottery ticket? YES.
A camera is like a lung. I need it.
At least I tell myself I need it.
I know its a want.
I know I know.
It's also my life. My sanity.
I was out on the boat shooting the loons.
Still too far away for a great crop but I got a few.
Fired off about 64 shots when all of a sudden
there was an error message on the screen
mid shoot. Crap. Heart sinks.
Its internal. Nothing I can fix.
Loon comes within five feet of the boat.
I'm scrambling thru batteries, memory cards,
trying any and all combinations to bring her back to life.
Loon swims off. Babies swim off.
Heart sinks again.
I'm closing all blinds in my house.
I don't want to see the cool lighting thnx to
magnificent clouds that have filled the sky all day.
I don't want to see that the wind is almost nothing
so the water would be like glass.
You'll find me cleaning house.
Anything to fill the time until the new camera gets here.
Which is looking like Monday.
Is this worse than a broken heart?
Take my camera and I can't function OUCH.
Well. Time to get busy.
Am going to try not to click that my account button
on Amazon any more today. It will get here when it gets here.
yeh I wouldn't believe that either.
I hope it rains all weekend.
there are people living homeless
and without food.
I can take this one in stride and call it good.
