Remember back in May, how I fell in love? Well, it has happened again.

But we need to start at the beginning.

Way, way, way back in 1990, The Doctor bought a video camera. I wasn't around yet, he just wanted one. It was cool because it could record on full size VHS tapes. After we were married, I loved it because after we taped things, we could just stick them in the VCR and watch the movies. I loved it.
Ours wasn't quite this cool because it didn't have a flip-out view finder.

Well, in 2002 it was on it's last legs. It would still record, after you flipped the switch on and off several times. And then the viewfinder quit working. Well, what good is a camcorder if you can't see what you are recording.

That Thanksgiving, Wal-mart had their sales and they had a VHS-C camcorder for $208. I was pumped and pretty much told The Doctor we were getting one. And I did get it! I was very happy. I just read in my journal about how light it was and how wonderful.
I know, that's really small picture, but at the time, that is how it felt...small and compact!

Well, I think you know where this is heading. I have been getting the itch again. I see people with their teeny tiny camcorders and I have been coveting them. Yes, coveting.

But I knew I would have to wait. It's hard to buy frivolous things when your husband is out of work.

However, my grandparents gave each grandchild some money this year. I did not want to just spend it on bills or such, and suddenly I knew exactly what I was going to use part of it on. I did some research and today I dragged The Doctor to Sam's Club and bought this beauty...

It looks big, but trust me, it is teeny tiny! It fits in the palm of my hand! It has a 35x optical zoom, and has a 30 GB hard drive. No tapes, no discs! Even on the finest quality, it will record over 7 hours of video! And we got a great deal on it, because it included a remote control, carrying case, and tripod!
I am so excited to have it! I am in love again!
Thank you, Grandma and Grandpa. Everytime I use my camcorder, I will think of you. I love you both.
