I was snapping away like mad when I realized I did not bring my charger along with me to “Willis Wonderland”. I was promptly told NOT to panic, that this could be fixed. This is only a small amount of chargers on hand at WW.

Chargers, memory cards, and more. There is never a shortage of these supplies!

Perfectly posed.

Um, how did this sneak in here? This shot was actually taken in JUNE OF 2010.

    I always have tons of chargers, batteries and memory cards on hand. I’ve never understood how people function with only one of each. You need to be prepared for anything.

    I love that shot of us. That was the first day I ever met you. Thank God I have extra chargers, batteries and memory cards or perhaps this photo may never have been taken.

    As I sit here melting in the blazing heat of Kenosha, Wisconsin, where I am to go to wedding tomorrow night, I had thought my day would be spent driving around and snapping photographs of amazing vintage stores, motels, diners, etc. Instead,the town’s all been polished up. Yes, we did hit Frank’s Diner, which had been featured recently on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dive’s, but I don’t care how vintage you are or how good your food is (not THAT good @ Franks, average +3) if you don’t have adequate air conditioning you ain’t for me. Point being that I have almost every single one of the chargers and memory cards pictured here in my backpack and all they’re doing is weighing me down and making me sweat even more. It’s a one charger/1 memory card town (unless anyone reading this knows any different and can advise me within the next 24 hours).

    You are right. It wasn’t until we all worked for you in Detroit did I realize how happy I was with a back up battery AND backup charger! Now I know the significance of this post!

    I knew you were on the road. I sent a text anyway. Can’t wait to get to LA. I can’t stand it that I can only eat kaya toast once a year, it’s not fair.

    As for local sites, that would bother me too. When I go away now, I am more conscious than ever in looking for kitsch out and about in the community and am sad when I can’t find any. Hang in there and enjoy your trip.

    See you all soon.
