I have lost my camera download cord. Or, maybe it is my mind I have lost. Or both.
Yesterday I took a few photos of Megan clearing the new snow out of the front driveway (a job that equals fun for a kid when it involves driving the four-wheeler with snowplow). Then I went to my computer to download the photos from my camera.
The cord was missing. It usually lives attached to the computer. It wasn't there. So I looked in the other two places in my desk where I have sometimes kept it. Not there either.
I have searched all the likely places several times. I have searched the marginally likely places such as under the desk. I even searched the wastebasket that sits under a corner of the desk. No luck.
Then I began searching unlikely places--the drawers in the living room tables, my scrapbooking equipment boxes, the drawer in my dresser where I have an old film camera and a couple of camera cases. I walked through the whole house, hoping to stir a memory of where I might have put it or absent-mindedly laid it down (why would I have been carrying it around?). No inspirations fell upon me.
Then I repeated all of the above.
I am coming to the conclusion that the only way it will ever be found is if I order a replacement cord. As soon as the new cord arrives, I am sure I'll find the missing one!
