Tragedy!!!

Yes, yes, I know I can't hear that word without then hearing grandma's wisdom: "There is no tragedy except in sin."
But this is pretty damn close- I lost my CAMERA!!!!
'Nooooo They Be Stealin Mah Camra !!'

I left it at the playground in my neighborhood yesterday. I am off to Craigs List and to make signs. That's what I get for going outdoors.

Update: Camera found.
I knew I could rely on the good people of Charlotte to come through for me! I actually was quite hopeful because of the kind of people who live here. I had posted signs all over the neighborhood and was ending at the playground, or the 'Scene of the Crime.' I let Bella play for a while and was just about to leave when another couple arrived at the playground. Bella was on her 'last slide' and I was gathering my things. I mentioned to the woman that I was hanging signs, and it turned out that she was there to hang signs for a Found camera! She was the nanny for the woman who found it, so tonight I will pick it up. *Phew! My faith in humanity, and specifically Charlottans (I love saying that!) is restored.
Tragedy Averted.

I still am in disbelief! I hope the signs help and someone who is kind and honest found it and will return it without damage or expecting a reward or something.

NO!!!!!! I can't believe it. I once left my camera at a park in Pleasant Grove when Lucas was a baby. Marc told me to go back and put up signs. I thought he was crazy, but I did get my camera back! Good luck!
