Default OT - WONDERFUL NEWS!!!

5 OF THE 6 ROLLS OF MY WHALE WATCH FILM HAVE BEEN FOUND!!! Sorry if I busted anyone's eardrums with my yelling.....I had really given up hope! Yes, after 19 days the photolab in Maryland found, processed and returned them to Target. However, Target can only find 5 of them....no quiveling here....I am just VERY THANKFUL to have the 5! My cousin is on her way to pick them up now, so barring any mess-up with the USPS, I should have them by the end of next week. Keep your fingers crossed for their safe passage! Mgram

That is great! I know I would have been devasted if I lost my travel films.
I hope they aren't going to charge for the film after this mixup.

Glad to hear you'll get the pics. It's devastating to lose those precious photos.

I recently read of someone who had their camera stolen....they were more upset about the photos which were in the camera than they were about the camera itself.

Pat, that's GREAT news! I don't blame you for being happy, even with a roll still outstanding. We're happy FOR you! What a great ending, and what a happy day!

All 6 rolls are safely in my cousin's hands and there was NO CHARGE. She says that I have some great shots....sure hope so. Earlier today the stores Asst. Mgr. told me I would have to pay half, but one clerk said I had been through enough and she would waive the charges (she said she had the authority...not a store employee....under contract with the lab). Apparently that particular Target does not have the delivery guarantee that Target and KMart normally have. Oh well, it's water under the bridge now....lesson learned. Thanks to all for your good wishes! Mgram

Maverick....since you insist, I will post a gallery once they arrive here. This experience is a real good argument for a NEW DIGITAL camera. I love the one I have, but it does not have a zoom, so I didn't use it for the whale watch. Not that I really needed a zoom...they were right at the boat! My digital takes great wide angle shots(for group pics and panoramic views without detail) and terrific closeups (3-6ft)....but I get accused of having a 'fat' lens on it! Mgram
