The Bear Did It

I must be the last person in the world to upload a video to Youtube. But, at last, I have. And like a gazillion of them on there, a silly meaningless one.

During a bad electrical storm, I had my computer turned off but was just waiting for the storm to pass so I could get back on to work. I used the wait time to learn one new thing about my camera from the manual.

Hm, what is "flip animation?"

I grabbed the first animate-able thing I could think of: an old toy bear, left by a visiting child at my mother's work back in the late 70s. Thereafter, whenever the computer malfunctioned, they would point to the bear on the shelf and say, "The bear did it." When she moved, Mom bequeathed the bear to me, and the bear continues to be unfairly blamed for all unwanted computer drama.

But now he's a star!

At least you can blame someone. I always say, the cats did it, when something breaks.
