I've been collecting seashells for as long as I can remember. From east to west, coast to coast, and shore to shore, I always find a treasure to keep, and adore.

Thanksgiving 2012

Twas the day of Thanksgiving,
and much to my surprise,
my little Coolpix camera met it's demise.
I had just barely used it moments before,
and didn't drop this camera on the floor.
The screen display showed 'lens error'
Much to my horror :O

I turned it on, and the sound it made just wasn't funny
Erhnn, erhnn, erhnn, erhnn... I need a new camera honey!

No pics of my Thanksgiving,
nor none of my family.
No new listings for Etsy
No stores are open on turkey day!

I don't DO Black Friday shopping
it's a nightmare to me.
Shopping in a massive crowd isn't done gleefully.
But out I went on Friday, with much trepidation
Hoping to score a camera on a clearance liquidation!

I did so love my camera, that I went to get another Nikon
But all the super mega-pixels were so long gone.

So I hemmed and hawed back and forth trying to decide,
which one of these other brands would suit my needs just fine.
I finally settled on a Fuji with an incredible zoom,
Oh my holy cow I can zoom across the room!

This camera is perfect for the beach, and for my Etsy, too!
I hope it takes good pictures of Mili, Bonesaw, and the Cannibal crew!

You are an unbelievable poet!! Nice job! I had to laugh because when my friend Judy was here, her camera did the same thing! We googled it and tried all the the fixes...to no avail. But...we didn't think to write a poem about it!!!

Brilliant, as usual! Sorry about your camera's untimely departure, but new stuff is fun, huh?

Isn't that how it goes. I find black Friday to be a nightmare as well.

Del, I am laughing at you very cute poem, but I feel sorry for your camera loss. That's a bummer! Glad you were able to buy something that works for you. And hope to see more beautiful photos! Good luck with your new toy! :)
