So, last Wednesday I took Z to get his first REAL haircut. I took a picture before... the whole haircutting experience was traumatic for both of us. He screamed and hyperventilated the entire time. It was horrible.

But, I am not writing about that. No, afterward I picked up the camera to take another picture... and the lens is stuck. It won't go in. It won't go out. My little digital that has taken Oh SO MANY pictures and recorded so many events from pregnancy through the kids first 19 months is caput! AGggghhhhh!!!!

I am at a loss. I didn't realize how much I relied on it!

So, no new pictures. I did however get out my old, very beautiful, SLR camera. The feel of it in my hands was like meeting an old friend. I have taken about 4 rolls in 2 days! I know, it is a bit excessive, but I don't want to miss anything.

Now, I have to get them all developed... Hopefully, I can get them put directly on disk... and maybe then you will see pictures again.

That's just a good excuse for a new camera! Maybe a DIGITAL slr?? :-)

That is so sad that he was so upset by his haircutting experience. I've only cut Jackson's hair myself and he does NOT like it.

Oh, and you can get the film developed right onto a cd along with prints. My MIL does it all the time.

Have you tried putting new batteries in your digital camera? Sometimes if the batteries die the camera will shut down with the lens still out.

I have to add that when you put the new batteries, or re-charged batteries in, you might have to press the power button to get the lens to return.

This has happened to me a couple of times with one of my cameras. It's worth trying anyway.
