Ah yes, this is the day Cliff's Social Security shows up in the bank, so we will go for our big monthly shopping spree. Most of the $280 I allow for groceries each month will be gone today.
Yesterday morning I took the pictures you see in the previous entry and stuck the camera in the pocket of my housecoat. We headed out for our walk, my camera still in my pocket (yes, I do walk in my housecoat; it's another advantage of living in the sticks).
When we got back to the house, I tossed a load of clothes into the washing machine and, seeing there was room for something else, I removed my robe and put it in with the rest of the stuff. You've already seen the problem, haven't you?
About forty-five minutes later I thought of a picture I wanted to take, and when I couldn't find my camera, I realized what I'd done.
I can't live without my camera!
Since today is our big shopping day, I ordered the same model camera to be delivered at Walmart. I can pick it up today.
I posted on Facebook that I had laundered my camera (some wise-guy said, "No more dirty pictures, eh?") and my ex-daughter-in-law messaged me that she has a Nikon Coolpix she bought thinking she would use it, but she doesn't. I can have it.
So we'll be going past Kathy's house today, and I'll tell the folks at Walmart that I don't need that camera after all. I'll be getting used to another kind of camera, but since it'll save me $100, I'm willing to try.
