Camera

My camera is officially gone. Last Wednesday, I left my camera on the plane. It was right next to my bag under the seat in front of me and I just forgot to pick it up. I realized my mistake as I was standing in the lobby of the Ritz-Carlton in awe over an arrangement of roses, when I thought I should take a picture. Immediately, I called my mother-in-law, who works for the airline we flew, to ask what I should do to recover my camera. After giving her ALL the information I could, she was off and running. My MIL called at least 25 people in the Philadelphia airport as well as Miami, from baggage to lost and found, she even was able to relay a message to the flight crew some 30,000 miles up to check the plane, as the plane basically touched down and turned around back to Philadelphia. I filled out all sorts of paper work at both Philadelphia and Miami, have been on the phone with several people in the "warehouse" in Charlotte. Nothing, Nada, Zilch, Zip, Nil! Nobody has seen my camera... So, it leads me to believe someone found it and decided to keep it for themselves. Unbelievable!

That's too bad.

We lost video camera in the LL Bean parking lot in Maine, I think I forgot to lock the car and someone helped themselves. Every once in awhile the human race lets you down!

That just sucks. At first I was thinking you could use the airline insurance money to upgrade... but I guess it's not like the airline lost the camera. I am so sorry!
