Odd Month - Last Sunday

So, it was a non-normal weekend - the weekly routine was broken. As usual, I went down to the ACP computer swap meet. I even took my camera so I could document how sad the situation has become: I've written about it before, and things have only gotten worse.

I had my list of things to buy, and was open to other useful items. Since, after that unfortunate burn-out a couple of weeks ago, I haven't had a spare power supply, that was one of them. The ones at ACP tend to be the cheaper ones, but they work in a pinch.

My usual small-parts supplier had a very poor selection, and, even the recycler didn't have much out. After completing my tour, as I headed back to the car, I reviewed my list and nothing was crossed off. I picked up several power supplies and between them I don't think they weighed a total of a pound. I judge power supplies by weight.

Before leaving, I went across the street to take a couple of snapshots, then was gone. When I got home and was ready for the post, I pulled out the camera and found I had no pictures - I had the camera in the wrong mode and didn't notice it.

I'll take another shot at it in January - if the swapmeet survives.
