It's alive!

We set out for Best Buys to entrust my beloved corpse of a camera with the Geek Squad to see if they could resuscitate it.

Right before taking it into the store, I gave it one more try and lo and's alive!

Oh snap!  I thought I had that camera taken care of.

My guess is that it got too hot (I must remember this is the desert) and simply shut down to protect itself.  I now store it in a shadier area inside the RV and will put it in the small insulated cooler in the car when it's with me but not in use.

Whew!  I'm so glad I didn't haul it in there and then find out it was fine.  It's like those times you have the repairman come to the house and then the afflicted appliance is working just fine.
Maybe this is what caused that craving for fish and chips?

The best part of this is I got to have lunch out again since we went all the way into town. 

I'm not sure if Left Brain believes me now that it wasn't working in the first place.

So...the photos will be continuing without interruption.  Now we can go on our outing to Borrego Springs to see those giant metal sculptures I've been excited to visit.

Long Live the Overheated Queen


  1. Enjoying your posts, have been having a browse through some of your older ones and will continue to follow you. We have a caravan parked up in a camping ground and enjoy getting away to it occasionally.


  2. Good news Overheated Queen. Remember to drink more liquids too!

  3. What good news about your camera. When it is in the cooler, don't let it get too cool. It may do the same thing again. The fish and chips sounds delish! Can't wait to see more photos of the metal sculptures. You have a great day, hugs, Edna B.

  4. Well this is good news! That camera is important. Love the pictures and travel stories you share! But, take care of of yourselves, too! The desert can be a bit aggressive!
