One, that it was Father's Day! Yay for fathers!
Two, that is was my first ever gotcha day! YAY ME!
Three...some doggy made my poor Momma all upset!
You see, yesterday she was taking pictures with her most favorite camera, a Nikon D90. At one point she had to take a photo break so she could take a potty break.
Carefully she set the camera on the kitchen table, but left the strap hanging off of it...
|Photo reenactment! Also...please disregard super, super old chairs that are headed to the dump someday (hopefully) soon.|
Then - while she was busy doing her own personal business - there came a loud BANG!!! from the kitchen, and when she came back there lie her poor camera on the floor in two pieces.
The camera body, and a few feet away the camera lens.
Momma's eyes landed on me...poor, completely innocent me...and she growled meaner then any doggie can ever hope to growl "Wesley, what did you do?!"
"But it wasn't me, Momma!" I told her, telling her the absolute 100% honest truth. "It was the squirrels! THEY did it!"
...she didn't look like she believed me at all, but sort of closed her eyes for a minute before sighing and picking up the camera pieces and checking out the damage.
As it turns out, the camera body seems to be fine. The lens, though....
|Can you see where a piece broke off?|
But that doesn't mean at all that she's anything like happy.
Those stupid squirrels!
((Wes Momma - Here's a bit of almost funny about this. Chris, Wes' Poppa, was talking about me upgrading my camera this past week...and I kept on telling him 'No, that's ok. The camera I'm using is just fine.' Maybe it's a sign from fate? Then again the camera does still seem to work ok...at least I'm not noticing anything immediately wrong about it. I'm not exactly a super camera-guru though. ))
