Thank y'all for your kind words about my Rebel. Like Tanya suggested, I'm looking into local camera shops for repair. Hopefully they've seen this type of problem and can easily fix it while I wait.
Until then, I've decided to kill two birds with one stone. I hate the thought of not being able to post photos, but I remembered that I am in the process of scanning all my old photos and now have an abundance of material to show. Of course, I don't want to bore you all to death with baby pictures, so I made an executive decision. I'm going back through the shots I have of my evil sister. See what a blessing this is, the breaking of my camera? I now have a venue for revenge!
I know, I know. Displaying photos from her teen years isn't exactly an Annoy-a-tron, but that's okay. I can live with that. I think I have shots of her in a bathing suit somewhere. And one of her I KNOW I just saw where she's sticking her big toe up her nose. Oh, the possibilities! Hmmm. Yes. I'm going to do it.
Let me know if you can think of a better way to annoy my sister. She has no children, so that payback is out. I doubt I can convince her husband to engage in a plot. He's strangely loyal that way. I think it has something to do with having to live in the same house with her for the rest of his life. But you, dear friends, have no idea who she is. You can help me. Mwahahahaha!
Until I write again ...
