You Get What You Pay For

As I’ve mentioned before in the context of socks, I enjoy trying to salvage and get some use out of items that the kids have left behind.  In my ongoing searches I found two old digital cameras, and yesterday I bought new batteries in hopes of getting them to work.  No such luck.  Today I wanted to take just a few pictures of UJ, Aunt Bebe, and Richard at the OSU game.  So, I got up early, went to Meijer, and bought a camera.  It was so early in the morning there was no one there to consult on the camera selection, and I therefore didn’t want to buy anything expensive without knowing about features and so forth.  To my surprise, however, they had a camera sold for $12.95 that was able to hold 20 digital pictures.  $12.95!  Although I was suspicious, I figured “what the heck?” and bought it.  It appears to be made entirely of plastic, weighs about 4 ounces, states that it was made in China, and bears that trade name (I guess) “Digital.”

I think I was successful in supposedly taking pictures with the camera today, but I cannot get the pictures (if any) to download.  Rats!  So, I will have to post on the game without any photos.

The wise Kish has said that you shouldn’t scrimp on shoes and toilet paper.  I guess I will have to put digital cameras on that list, too.
