Credit to my Mother-In-Law, who is graciously visiting for the weekend. I love her, love when she's here, and Bella is BESIDE herself. Anyway, we're eating some of Alex's fabulous steaks for dinner, and during all the chit-chat, MIL says, "Alex, do you remember that fellow who used to ride a unicycle up and down the street, always saying, 'I am plums cuckoos?' Well, he's in the highest segment of Homeland Security now."
I nearly inhaled a crouton.
As it turns out, the unicycle-riding and "plums cuckoos" stuff happened when this person was a child, but for a while there , it was just apropos to the point of being poetic.
My camera, a Sony Cybershot 7.2MP, suddenly will not extend its lens. When you turn it on, it makes a labored little noise, then says "Turn camera off and back on again," but when I do, the process just repeats. It works fine in all other modes. Anyone got any ideas?
