This past week was our annual outing to Mississinewa State Reservoir. We worked and slaved and packed and toted, because the fun and relaxation at the other end would be worth the effort.
I went to the desk drawer to get the charger for the camera battery. As I picked it up, I noted the ancient A520 lying there, lonely, unused, rejected in favor of the newer, sleeker A4000. And a little voice spoke into my ear, "Take the old camera along. Just in case something should go wrong with your pet."
Nah. What could possibly go wrong? Everything, as it turns out, so there are no pictures from our most recent camping experience. The lens cover jammed and would not open; camera shut down automatically. I could think of nothing that helped.
The next time I have a premonition, I will attend more carefully. Maybe.
Oh, yes. It was a great time, even without pix.
Vanilla, you say, you could have taken pix with your smartphone! Really? I have never had, do not now have, nor is it likely that I will ever have, a smartphone.
