drowned camera, we mourn you.

dear camera,
you were our first camera. we bought you at the forums at Caesar's palace on our secret trip to vegas, the first summer we were married. i loved your red color. you take such beautiful pictures. i'm grieving for you this morning. grieving because i put you in my handy dandy red patterned purse yesterday, along with brennan bottle of water. you knew that brennan's bottle was not tightly screwed, but you said nothing. you must have been shouting, "i'm drowning!!!" but we did not hear you. we were car dancing to "womanizer" while your lens was being flooded with water. i thought if you dried out things would be okay, but this morning you are still broken. you've been all over the country, the Hawaiian islands, weddings, the pork loin's birth...we will miss you sony cyber shot. you and your 7.2 mega pixels.
love,
e, s.d.gib, & the pork loin

p.s. there's soap in my hair and i'm not going to wash it out. how did i get there? the pork loin has to grab at "protruding parts" while getting "changed," thus we are constantly washing with the Cetaphil. did i mention the pork loin is obsessed with grabbing my hair lately? these two activities don't go together. well, they do to the pork loin. are you pickin' up what i'm puttin' down?

we have that camera! we bought it on the east coast after we left our first ever digital camera somewhere on Martha's Vineyard. Hmmm. We have moved on to even another camera now- but we always some back to our cyber shot in times of technical difficulty. Read my post about it later in fact....

I love my Canon digital elf. It does a great job for me. Sorry yours bit the dust. I always get attached to a gadget because I don't like having to get used to a new one with all its quirks, etc.

The same thing happened to my cell phone at Disney Land last summer. Digital equipment and water don't seem to get along. Sorry to hear of your loss. My thoughts will be with you. : )

What memories, what good times, what a way to go. I know that losing a camera can be tragic, and some may tell you to take your time to mourn your loss. That is not my advice. My advice is to get out there, and find a Better camera, that will give you Better pictures, and Better memories! (Does this sound like break up advice, because if you know someone going through a break up, you could totally use these same words and give them all the comfort they need!)

P.S. how goes Brennan's progress on walking? Can I change my prediction? I think he already passed it. Is that cheating?

I had that same camera in black and Ruben dropped it in a pool at Black Beard's Castle in St. Thomas. It died that day and we went months before buying our Canon Rebel XSI. I bought the insurance plan on that one ;)
