A secret you may NEED to know......

I might have mentioned that my camera is sick........I don't know if it's just anemic or if it really is the CCD image sensor....ahem, that makes me sound important because I know that, doesn't it???? Well, that's where the secret you NEED to know comes in......

I think I actually read about this in the AARP magazine that comes to our house.....FOR THE MISTER......because you know I don't qualify for that periodical.....ahem. There will be more about that later this month, by the way..... Anyhoo, I read about this website called:
There is a new Solution for the problem you posted on FixYa
FixYa.com

Technical Support, Instructions & Repair Service

www.fixya.com! You can go there and type in whatever technical problem you might have. I don't think they actually counsel about other issues, but you could give it a try.....but they DO know technical issues. Someone on there told me that certain Canon cameras had a defective CCD image sensor and that the company would repair it at their expense....hmmm, FREE, you say??? I"m all over that. I was thinking my camera had a terminal illness and was on the way out. So I was encouraged to go over to the Canon Tech Support online, which I did on a Saturday. I really didn't expect to hear anything from them very quickly....maybe Monday at the earliest. Ya'll, within a half hour, I had an email from them offering to help me. I was overwhelmed with technical support love !!! So, to make this long story short, my camera is now en route to Canon to evaluate its issues. It's going to rehab, ya'll....

So, I thought I'd share about my not so fancy camera and its trip to the big hospital......let's hope it's really the CCD image sensor, and it will be fixed totally free of charge. You already know my love affair with Google Image, so I'll be relying on them heavily until my little camera issue is resolved....and I've commandeered my daughter's camera, too, in case there is something I must show you immediately. Actually there is...you must see the OH.SO.LOVELY bouganvilla I brought home from the grocery store....I'll be showing you that tomorrow. It's gorgeous....and spring-ish! So when our temps drop to 55 this evening, I'll still have a reminder that spring is really close at hand, and this cooler weather will be short lived. We are also in for some rain, which I sure hope we get....Texas is in a drought situation.
