Last November as Anita and I were preparing to board the tall ship Hawaiian Chieftain, my video camera fell in the drink. I was in public, so I had a calm response (really just ask Anita!) It was a goner, so we just went on and enjoyed the cruise less my video cam (which was later replaced by an HD camera).
That was the last I ever saw of that camera, right?
Thievin' varmit :)
But what a great story.
