Every day we’re going through our embarrassing trove of treasures in this house. After over 12 years, I’m still looking for the rats that have been packing this stuff in nooks and crannies throughout this ridiculously shaped house (with tons of nooks and crannies…and don’t ask me what nooks and crannies are…I just know this house has lots of them)!
Last night I came across an old camera bag with an old digital camera in it.
Today, I thought maybe I should see if it still works. It had some rechargeable batteries in it, so I removed those (assuming they don’t work after years of non-use) and inserted 4 double-A batteries that were in the bag. Surprisingly, the camera started up and I tried to take a picture.
“The memory card is full.”
Really? So, I checked it. A 1GB memory card. I fired up my laptop and downloaded the pics. There weren’t many, but that was mostly due to the card having two video clips that apparently Cameron took by accident. The video record button on the camera looks just like a power button on other devices. I think he had no idea that he was recording. So, those took up the majority of the memory.
Even so, there were some pictures from the 2013 MKonnections retreat (I think that was the first one Cameron attended). There were a few pics of helping the O’Briens in their move back to the USA.
No one has ever seen these pics before, so it felt like opening up a time capsule.
Here they are (sans video and a few blurry ones):
