Oh No!

Well, for the very first time in my life, I've lost something valuable. It wasn't stolen (I think), and I didn't leave it somewhere (I think). I've lost my digital camera. :-(

I had it for sure about 10 days ago, but when Sally and I left for Branson last Thursday, I couldn't find it anywhere. I looked in the church van. I looked in my office. I looked at the Muskogee Baptist Center. I looked at my grandma's house. I've torn the house apart, but the sad fact remains: I've lost my camera.

I am really sad about it, too. It was a very nice Olympus 720 that Sally and the girls got me last Christmas in Hong Kong. It had about 20 pictures that I hadn't downloaded yet. It had a huge storage card in it. It was "weather resistant"; very handy for the likes of me.

We can't afford a new camera right now. I'm going to have to dig out my old Sony with the busted LCD screen. At least it has a view finder so I can take pics.

I miss my camera.

Rick -

I am so sorry for you. I know with how much I have been wanting a digital camera,that it must be doubly awful to actually have had one and then lost it. I pray that it will turn up somewhere soon when you just aren't looking for it.

Did you use it taking those pumpkin carving photos?!?! I can imagine your sadness over this one! It's like an extension of self to be able to express artistically through photographs.

THINK! THINK! THINK!

It has to be around there somewhere. Has Sally checked her bag?

I feel your pain. We also got a nice digital camera for Christmas last year and recently lost it(although I think theft is likely here). Bummer. Now I know what's on the Christmas wish list again (just not sure we can swing it:-(
