A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to New York

I thought I had put film in the camera. Really, I was pretty sure about it. I had just taken in one roll of film, and I thought I had put a new roll in a few days before the trip.

I know, I was pretty busy. Also, I'm getting old. Last January, I thought it was funny when we visited my parents in Arizona and my mom took a whole bunch of pictures of my neice in a Japanese yukata I brought out for her. Later on, she discovered that she didn't have any film in the camera.

The same thing happened to me.

No film in the camera.

There has been something wrong with the camera recently. We can't make out the numbers on the top of the film any more, so can't tell what number picture we are on. Also, just on this trip, I put in a new battery. But the battery read that it was half used.

So we thought we were taking pictures. But we weren't. Good thing I met my blogfriend Fran and she took a picture.

sigh.

I'll try to paint some word pictures.

and... I guess we'll have to go back to New York sometime .... right?

I'm trying to make the best of it and not feel too stupid.

But I really wanted to have pictures from this trip, because I never had pictures from the last one.

And I'm a little down today as well because tomorrow I get to have the Procedure That Everyone Is Supposed To Have When They Turn Fifty. So, only clear liquids for me today. I'm glad I ate well this weekend.

I'll be back later with stories.

I'm guilty of the very same thing. Now I have a digital camera so the only worry is batteries being charged up.

Did you have fun though?

That is all that matters really and your memories.

I'm with David...and for the same reason I got a digital camera. But now my problem is that when I go somewhere I often forget to take extra batteries with me. It's always something :)

Looking forward to reading about your trip, even sans pictures.

"That" procedure will be done in a jiffy! Don't you worry. Then you'll have lost enough weight to have an ice cream sundae!

Diane said...

thank you Presby Gal! I needed that. I'm a little down about not being able to eat today, although I will say the green jello tasted much better than it usually does! and the beef bullion!

Presby Gal is right. You can make up for it with something special tomorrow and just think of the sympathy you'll be able to milk this for... It's almost as good as a rabid bat. I mean, I feel sorry for you.

Glad you had a good time. I felt happy all weekend whenever I thought of it! Fran has a great photo of you two at the diner.

Your word pictures are lovely. I can't wait.

Lindy -- the bat is much more serious. I just never realized how much I depend on food before.

I'll be posting on the trip soon.

I send prayers for your day tomorrow... I have not yet scheduled one for my recently turned 50-year old self!
