You will have to pretend that these pictures have anything to do with the subject, even if they don't.
The bad news is that my dear Nikon SLR seems to have shutter release issues in such a way that I think it is over...
The good news is that that means I can shop for a NEW camera, which will be nice. I used this Nikon many years almost continuously, so I feel I got my money's worth from it for sure.
Anyway, today was awesome. I attended some retirement event at Sylvia's school which included ice cream and socializing with other moms.
We went home, picked up some kids and went to the thrift store to find a variety of good buys. Including a cool new skirt, I have been wearing tons of skirts this summer, so always nice to have an extra one.
Sylvia found a nice doll, Erik got a bunch of books, Dawn acquired some new clothes, and Jane got a present for a friend. Very productive thrift store visit.
Getting into the storage facility was an interesting exercise in failing computer technology, and at the end she said 'FINE! I'll just let you in and you guys hope it works NEXT time!' That was after half an hour of many tries to get our key card to work.
They selected four boxes to take home, and were happy to see everything that was in there. Including My Neighbor Totoro, to the utter annoyance of Erik, who thinks Sylvia shouldn't watch it 24/7 since that interferes with HIS movie watching!
The store attendant did send us to a local comics store though, where we did not find wigs, but we did find many other shiny things (inluding a bumper sticker saying 'Inconceivable!') so we were not unhappy anyway.
It was such a lovely low-key day and I hope the other days of the weekend will be just as awesome.
