warranty

Lets see what happens with my camera. Granted I do use it a lot but it should be made for that. Less than a year later I am sending my, I thought it was nice, casio x75, sure its worth $149 now but I got it on sale a year ago for a sale price of $169 I rock I know...camera - yup my camera- gonna send it back to the 'fix it place' while I ponder just buying a new one (for a buck fifty) and making this one my 'camping' camera as I wade through the muck of 2 hundred dolla'cameras.

Oh....yeah...

I cant post with photos for a while unless I borrow the pups camera or bananas and I dont see any of that likely - since they 'tolerate'me and my blog and would never give me disc space on their units.

Ran another camera to the ground. This one looks so clean and perfect still.

Reminds me of this rental car my brother and I had back in 88' traveling from Paris to Spain and he wasnt drinking and I was as he drove way too fast trying to keep up freaking me out the entire time. The car didnt make it. We drove through one night and the first morning we had to exchange the car since we fried it. Just like my camera. The difference here is my brother probably 'overdrove' the car. We admitted that when we made the exchange and garnered a 'faster' unit - so the guy said, half suspicious in his caring way. We were moderately pleased with our replacement 'ride' as low horse power as it was...... a lot like my camera! Wait not this camera, this one is a good one it was the previous one that this one replaced that is at the crux of the matter. It - that one - the other - or whatever. I refuse to spend too much on things that break too easy, like sunglasses and portable cameras. I went from 99 to 149 and this is what I got. BTW the kid is still using the 99 one. Well those two cars and these two cameras have given me plenty - 0- memories thats all I am trying to say.


So see ya when I see ya.

this hits close to home...I have fond memories of pouring ice cubes in my coolant tank and generally just praying I could make it to the next rest area to cool the old engine.

And my camera? If the damn crackheads would quit breaking into my house, I might be able to hold onto such items. I did have the one that could be dropped, a whole heck of a lot, and keep ticking. That's the only kind I like.

Good story--yet, I need your food inspiration. Con the Banana--I think she's more likely to lend you a camera ;)

That is, A tragedy!
Where's our inspiration from our chef in NY? Do we have to imagine the images now? Its a tragedy...

Beth said...

tavolini: having crackheads stealing it would make more sense than it just suddenly not working....

anette: It feels like we had a death in the family...

beth: I guess I have to learn to be more descriptive..

Har: I think it was....

I think if anything happened to my camera I would die, just, die...

Michelle said...

sorry to hear about your camera. I have an inexpensive kodak and an expensive cannon. I would be lost without them..

Joy said...

You've spoiled us now with the pictures. How can we carry on with descriptions? Your blog looks so bare without them!

I've had Canon for 30 yrs., fixable problems, if any... I sort of wish mine would croak so I'd have an excuse to upgrade...

I have a great nikon and an average minolta SLR cameras that I have had since 1980 - they both work great with film...I havent spent that kind of money on a camera in that many years so I guess I dont know what the lesson is here...I have had a multitude of handheld units in the same amount of time and I beat those babies up....my point..i guess you save the mustang but give up the dodge dart....

Btw, that roast turned out fine, but there's too much of it, so I put about half in the freezer and am checking on recipes for the rest of it. I ate some of it with cabbage, which I enjoyed. Now I'm getting tired of it. So tonight I had a bacon and tomato sandwich. Just one person doesn't eat that much.
