It's Photo Tag Time!

Well! I've been tagged by my friend at Amy's House of Cats for photo tag! How exciting is this!

Here are the rules: Go to your first photo folder, find the 10th picture, post that photo and explain the story behind it. Then, tag five blogs to do the same.

Well, this isn't a pretty picture, but it's the 10th one in my photo file:

Poor Charlie. 

Here's the story. I had bought a small point and shoot camera a few weeks before Christmas. I wanted something to keep in my pocketbook that I could always have on hand whenever I needed it. I was tired of carrying the bigger camera everywhere I went.

Well, one day, I was at the shelter trying to take a picture of a new dog who had arrived. The dog was so happy to see me that she knocked the camera out of my hand and it slammed to the cement floor. The digital display looked more like a cartoon than anything recognizable. But it was very colorful... I can't tell you how many cameras I've gone through this way. But, the good thing was that this camera was still under warranty.

I sent it back to the manufacturer, and they sent me a new camera. I was so excited to have received the new camera (it was late on a Friday night) that I was shooting away at a sleeping Charlie. This was one of her expressions of not-quite-bliss as the flash kept waking her.

Sorry, Charlie!

Now, I'm tagging:

I can't wait to see your pictures and read your stories!
