— My Alphabe-Thursday (2nd), the letter "O" / Thursday Two Questions — Did you ever?
"O" is for "OH!!!" today. No it isn't for my nose bandaged or the story behind it (mohs surgery for basal cell carcinoma, four cuts/digs).
"OH!!!" is for my exclamation when I found this camera Tuesday in the dryer. I heard the dryer making a thump, thump, thumping sound like it does when you have washed your tennies and are machine drying them for a bit (don't let them get hot, the rubber soles, etc, can't take the heat good--besides they will shrink).
No, this "OH!!!" came when I looked in my freshly washed blue khakis pocket and found the camera. I had washed it with the pants. After recharging the battery and sun drying for two days, it doesn't work. Nada. No light, no display, no noises, just nothing.
I will quickly shop for another Sony. Both Sony pocket cameras I have owned have taken over 10,000 pictures. So did the Kodak. Adi killed the Kodak when with her wagging tail she pulled it off the shelf by the charging cord.

My last post last week was about an "N" word group, the National Maritime Museum in Sidney, Australia. My questions were about discrimination and travel. A bunch of you have or are facing discrimination of sort. Perhaps most all of us are--I'm an 'elderly person.' which is a cuss word for a senior citizen.
1. When did you last--did you ever wash or wet something that doesn't tolerate getting in much water?
Not me, but my kids are always 'washing' their cell phones. Like in the toilet, ship channel, or off the car bumper into a water puddle.

2. I don't have a camera and for a very good reason. I take awful pictures so hubby is the one with the cameras. His seems to be lasting for many years.
3. I said 'Oh' when I saw your picture. Yikes.
4. Ornery is my favorite 'O' word today, because that's how I'm feeling today. In a good sort of way though. The day should be filled with fun things.
Have a terrific day. ☺
Favorite "Oh" story: I used to teach a programming class and taught my students the "Oh, S***" command. Some people call it "Undo."
I would say the "usual" thing that gets washed, and sometimes also makes it into the dryer is a tube of Chapstick! I have a habit of always carrying one in my pants pocket and sometimes to forget to take it out! Cold water doesn't hurt it, but if it's in the dryer very long....it has to cool off...and then, Good As New! :)
I said "OH!" a few weeks ago when I fell and dislocated my elbow. Actually, I said a lot more than just "OH."
As for the washer, we are both very careful about emptying pockets.
My favorite o word is - oce cream does that count?
The cut sounds painful, I had my thumb and index finger cut to get rid of bad skin before...one was minor and the other was major.
1) I haven't washed any cameras, though I washed paper money quite a few times. smiles.
2) Not long, they usually get stolen, yup. Or I will get tire of them, and lastly the technology just get too old to be any good / convenient.
You know, I can't think of the last time I said, "OH!" over something shocking or alarming....wait...yes, I do remember. I exclaimed, "OH goodness!" when I learned DD#2 had the flu and pneumonia which landed her in the ER & then the hospital for 3 or 4 days. My favorite O word has to be oops because I make so many of them. =D
You can just tell people you're a boxer - ha!
It was definitely my cellphone. I put it into my mug of coffee in the car. D'oh. I like the tip about the rice. I've never heard of that.
Thanks for an outstanding link for the letter "O".
