ABC Wednesday – R is for the Three Rs, and then some.
We RODE the #4 bus from the office to the bus stop at the corner of SW 4th and Taylor, downtown Portland.
We entered RITZ Camera, the little shop on the corner, with one thing in mind, to take a photograph.
We asked Mr. ROMANO, helpful and RELIABLE store manager, if he would pose with Flat Stanley. "Of course," replied Mr. ROMANO, placing Flat Stanley and his Vespa on the counter in front of the Nikon display. Mr. ROMANO posed in his best trustworthy mode.
When I took the non-functioning D50 to RITZ, Mr. ROMANO discovered that it could not be REPAIRED in the store. So, Mr. ROMANO took RESPONSIBLITY for sending the D50 off to the camera hospital in September. About a month later the D50 came back home to Mama, meaning me, RIGHT as RAIN.
"RIGHT on!," hollered Flat Stanley from his perch on the display counter. He knew that without the D50, some of our photo opportunities would not have been REALIZED. Off camera, Mr. ROMANO smiled. So did I. All's RIGHT with the world.
