Funeral for a camera

My night is going to come to an early end. Not that I wanted it to.

My camera is pretty much finished. The shutter will not release, and once I press the shutter, power to the camera pretty much dies too. I had no idea it was coming, because it was working fine Tuesday at Beloit.

I figured this day would come, just not so soon. I had to have the camera repaired during the holiday break in December and early January, and that cost over $800. I think this is the last straw. The camera is over four years old, and I’ve worn it out.

Smith Center defeated Hill City in the opening match 25-10, 25-14. That will be all the volleyball I’ll see tonight. Time to go back home and pick up the pieces of another miserable failure.
