Yes, I am probably being impatient.  I just hate being without my best camera for two or three weeks during a time of the year when there are so many great photo ops.  Since the a57 is only 4 months old I really want to save it and the lens is too expensive to lose if I can save it.  I currently have the camera & lens on the rack meant for delicate items & shoes in my dryer and have been running it on very low heat hoping to speed things up without causing other problems.  I keep checking it to be sure their not getting too got. They'll go back into the bowl of rice when bedtime rolls around.

My husband who has been in the fireworks industry for over 25 years will find you rowboat story interesting.
