My camera died

About a week ago, my camera from 2006 died. I tried and tried to turn it on, but to no avail. This camera had been really good for me. I bought it the day before my first flight to Japan – a trip to see my son and his family and brand new baby, Annika. It was a digital Canon with 5 pixels—not great, but good enough. I suppose I have taken thousands of photos on it.

What to do? I want to continue writing on this blog and adding photos is a big part of that. I do have a camera on my iphone, but I don't really like the results I get with it. Perhaps I could work on getting better, but instead  I decided to check out the options with a new digital camera. Voila! I was able to get a new one with more pixels at a third of the cost of my old one. So I ordered it and got it Friday.

Here is my first photo taken on my new camera. There's a story that goes along with it. We were on an Alaskan cruise in 2008. There were 19 of us that went. My sister, daughter and I were shopping in a store in Skagway when I spotted these adorable Alaskan nativity sets. I commented "I would give my eye teeth for one of these sets." Heidi overheard me and stepped back to another aisle in the store and phoned her husband who was in another store. She told him "I just found Mom's Christmas present! It's in 'such and such' store. In about 15 minutes, will you come to this store to buy it?" That was in August. Christmas came that year and I opened my package to find this. I was thrilled!

Love the Alaskan manger set. That is a neat story about how you got it. You must have set it up at your work. I do not think that is your house because I do not recognize table, book shelves, stair case.
