Roll with it.

The battery went dead in my camera today. My husband went to the camera store in town to get one for me. He had looked on Ebay, but didn't buy one for $20 because it was made in China.
So he bought one at the store, for $65, and when we opened it, it said, "Made in China" on the side of it.
What's up with that?
So I took my other camera with me, took some pictures with me, and now I can't upload them to my computer.
So. No pictures.

On the way to the studio this morning, Steve Winwood came on the radio.
I cranked it up.

Now if this doesn't get your blood boiling, you are dead.
Lie down now.

Of interest: remember me telling you about how I used to chase the UPS man down. I would pack my packages in the car at the end of the day, and search him out on my way home. It seemed I always found the same little Jamaican guy, who was always friendly, and laughed when I told him I wasn't stalking him..........HONEST.
Well, I haven't seen him in a long time, since I got my own UPS account, and they pick the packages up at the door.
But tonight, after dinner, a big truck pulled up out front. I went to the door, and when I opened it, it was my little UPS guy, with a grin.
He handed me a box, and said, "How've you been?"
I guess I made an impression, chasing him around town.
Who knew?

Seems to happen around here for products made in the USA only to get them home, and find out they were packaged or distributed here, made elsewhere.
I'm still tapping my toes !

We've got one UPS guy in our town. Us women call him Hotty Toddy! He's cute and is VERY friendly! All the older women in the stores on main street get all atwitter when Todd is delivering! I know a girl that is his replacement on his days off and she is so disgusted by the end of the day - all the women are like "where's todd?" -- "oh that Todd, he's such a NICE boy!" etc etc etc.... He can deliver a package to me any day! lol!!!!
