Maybe nobody even noticed......
After going back to Costco today and looking around, checking with lost and found and with the girls at one hour photo, I declared the memory stick gone, gone, gone.....so I bought a new Sony camera!!! I am charging the battery now, it is going to be different not having to carry double A batteries with me everywhere anymore! Though I will search online for a second rechargeable battery to have a backup.
So I will take two photos and get caught up.
And I'll probably be taking photos all over the place with a nice big viewing screen, better zoom and more megapixels..
