Of course that's where it was.

Did I post about the old new camera? I don’t think I did – out of shame that I buy cameras like Kleenex. Brad’s old camera was giving out. The battery was bulging and wouldn’t hold a charge, but new generic batteries didn’t quite fit. Then it fell out of my jacket pocket onto the sidewalk at work. *Sniff* It would take a photo, but then shut off immediately.

It was time.

The new one is nothing fancy. It was recommended by a website as ‘the best camera you can buy for under a hundred bucks’. I figured I should buy cheap since I tend to be careless.

I think I've had it two months.

Anyway, the battery has excellent staying power. I’ve only had to charge it twice, but last week the battery was going and I couldn’t find the charger. I looked at home, all over work, in the truck, in my bag, then through all those places again. Grrrrr. I finally caved and bought a cheap charger from Amazon. It’s supposed to come later this week.

Well, of course I found it this evening. It was in the basket where we keep the grocery bags. Of course!! What a logical place to stash it when I was ‘cleaning’.

It is not in this photo, so don't strain your eyes.

Grrr. Anyone need a charger?

    I think you should get a pegboard and start keeping stuff there. You could trace the outline of each object where it’s supposed to hang.

    And you should include an outline of your cat, er… what’s her name again? Mothra? Velveeta? Mrs. Whiskerson?

      Lloyd really wanted Princess Buttercup, but I was firm on Batman. Of course, the obvious compromise was Princess Batman.

      We might tell people that the preschoolers named her. 😉

    Well I say it’s always good to have a spare!

    I recently misplaced my King Syrup only to discover it in the backseat of my car under a sweatshirt in the hot sun where it had leaked all over my seats and my dog walked in it and ran back & forth back over the seats. I need a new car.
