Like a dolt, I left my camera on the plane while passing through Atlanta. On the other hand, I managed to successfully carry the bag of Cheerios all the way to Seattle!
This has turned into a fiasco - I've contacted Delta lost and found and they claim that something which roughly matches the description of my camera is in the lost and found in Atlanta. They also have sent the lost and found a note with my phone number as well as providing me with the number for lost and found. I've not heard from the lost and found department nor been unable to contact them, despite trying all week. I've looked for back doors, alternate numbers, anything so that I can speak to the individual who can tell me whether they have my camera - and how to get it back!
I've resorted to asking one of my co-workers, who lives in Atlanta, to drop by the lost and found. Whether he'll actually have time to make a real effort of this is to be determined, but I sure hope so. I can deal with the loss of the money - I'm not happy about it, but I accept that as a lesson learned. However, I really want the pictures! There are some great shots of our family and Jerry's first trip to the Atlantic Ocean.
Speaking of Jerry, he clearly says 'mama' now!
