Finally managed to convince my camera that it does really want to let me put my photos onto the computer. After all that fight with the USB cable I realized that I can just take the memory card out and put it directly into the computer. Well ... duh. I think the camera has been dragged out into the rain one too many times and the connection is a little fried. Poor thing.
A few days ago we were not in a winter wonderland(as presents itself outside my front door today). It was misty and rather warm, pushing almost 10 degrees above zero and made it hard to drag myself back home to get ready for work. Especially when the dogs were clearly having a wonderful time looking for That Darn Squirrel. Leeloo in particular made note of previous squirrel locations and made sure to check them all.
