Me: Hey, Piper, guess what!
Me: This box that just arrived in the mail? It's the camera!!
We've finally got the camera back from the Little Shop of Miracles!!!
Piper: um, has the camera been missing?
Me: What?! It's been gone for weeks!
Weeks and weeks!
Me: Haven't you noticed on our walks by the pond lately,
that I don't stop every few seconds to take a picture?
Piper: Of course I noticed. I was thrilled.
I thought I had finally trained you to Walk Properly.
Dear Readers, if you are still here...
I will be putting the revitalized camera through it's paces very soon,
and there will be lots of images and updates to come.
But I couldn't wait to share these first snaps,
taken minutes after I brought up the mail and opened the package.
Piper, who declined to accompany me to the letterbox
on the grounds of, "It's too h-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-ot....",
was at first mildly interested in the package.
(Treats often come in packages, you see.)
But you can judge the level of her excitement
when I brought out The Camera.
Me? I felt like jumping up and down in joy!
But Piper had a point:
it truly is Summer now, and it really is hot.
