My Nikon is now sitting in my camera bag after shooting picture # DSC_9999.jpg the other night. But I know that I cannot have something ready to take another picture with before Ruff's birthday next Sunday so I dusted off my old Sony digital that I haven't used in the last 4 1/2 years and I charged up the battery. I will keep the promise I made to take my 10,000th picture with my Nikon when Ruff has his birthday party. After all, it was Ruff who was the reason I bought the Nikon in the first place. If you're curious, here is the 9,999th picture. Nothing out of the ordinary, just another after-the-movie image.
