It was an expensive lesson but I think we learned it. Just to make sure, B made a new rule for the camera. No rain and no bike races. Do not take your camera to a bike race when it is raining. Otherwise you will get water in it when the lens retracts. We thought we could get it to work by drying it out but now realize that when we heard a final dying high pitched gasp it was breathing its last. We took it to be fixed but it would cost twice as much as it was worth when new! Now to learn how to use a new camera. These shots are all experiments. I'm suppose to be working--and I guess this constitutes work, doesn't it?
