For the millionth time my memory card and my camera are in two separate locations.  And it has just dawned on me that the pictures that I THOUGHT I was taking earlier actually went off to la-la land because the memory card probably wasn’t in the camera at that point either.  Duh.

I’m going to blame it on my newest head injury.  NEver mind the fact that the head injury was this evening adn all of the camera nonsense occurred earlier in the day.

Which is all by way of explaining why I’m going to just go crawl in bed and not come out again until April.  Because it is FREAKING cold here in Iowa, and in bed I don’t think I can hurt myself.

Unless I fall out.
