I also had to replace that crappy camera with a new crappy camera. Got a cheap Fuji with limited zoom. It would probably have been wise to save the money and (after Sluggo was upgraded or replaced) bought a better one. But I'm nothing if not impatient.
And, by the way, Frank is mauve again today. At least for me he is. I've decided to believe that it is because he likes me better than he likes anyone else. Heh.
