Too bad it's three hours to Saskatoon, each way (give or take). But thanks to the www a friend is on their way to pick up the camera. Robyn is heading into the city with her family to catch a wedding. She found out the camera was ready for pickup because of Facebook - which I have linked with my Twitter (think a site that just does status updates, allows me to put those on FB and on the side of my blog over there). I get my camera back without having to drive into the city, she and Garth gets to test drive the D40 for a weekend (my bet is they'll want to buy a new camera soon). We all win.
Expect to be taking pictures some on Monday (my day off!)
Here's the picture of my D40 before it came out of its box.
