Finally got my digital camera up and running. I bought a "slightly used" camera off of e-bay because I did not have the cash to buy what I wanted new. Apparently slightly used cameras come sans USB cables so that photos can be uploaded. USB cables can be pricey. UNLESS........you get them off of e-bay for MUUHUUCH cheaper than you can at any other establishment that sells those items!
Which I did, which means that I had to wait a few days before I could share cute photos like the one in this post.
