Otis needs professional help.



Could we crowd fund that?

Better make sure the therapist isn't one of Otis' minions! Or we'd all be left without our nuts, errr cash...

Is there a photo gear party on? Can I bring my acieL??





Sorry about the blur and misfocus - it was taken handheld in LV at f/1.2 and 1/4th of a sec, and at an awkward angle at that.

At least it wasn't taken with a K-3

Great idea! Otis loves it, and would appreciate the help. He could set up an appointment with Dr Louie Squirrel for counseling sessions, all funded by his friends here!

BTW- He wants to once again thank all the PF Members that donated to his fund last winter for feeding those little blind orphan squirrels. While he was on the beaches of Jamaica last January, it did his little heart good to know that the little orphans were getting two peanuts a day...each.
Winter is coming again, and he knows you guys will be there once again with a helping handout!

Regards!

Otis is still waiting for a go or no-go on allowing his Army Squirrels access to this thread.....Can we get a vote?

I vote No...but will abide by the majority. I know these damn unruly critters all too well, and even confined to this thread would be a lot of squirrel nonsense and that bad breath and their unbathed hides are really disgusting up close and personal.

Regards!

No one wants to lose their nuts, in particular if they are big and robust ones.....

I thought we'd only reverse the names of organisations that threaten Tokyo? Revered Leica is certainly not evil, is it?

No one ever suspects the hero... Until they turn out to be the master villain! To avoid DoomOfTokyo, best treat them all as potentially eviL

Jean, when people keep telling you to seek help, they don't generally mean seeking "help" at your thrift store.

Really.

And the scary thing is that whatever illness you have is contagious. My immune system is working overtime, but the ranks of T cells are wearing thinner each passing day as I go through the classifieds and local online markets. I was (luckily!) just a tad too slow to bag an excellent deal on a Q kit the other day. I mean... a Q? Really?

Pure evil, I'm afraid. If you see the red mark - run! That thing will rip out the guts of your credit cards (yes, all of them!) in no time flat. It will leave your entire family in bottomless debt for several generations to come. There'll be only shreds left of whatever life you thought you had.

And yet people are complaining over the (undisclosed!) price of the over-the-horizon PFFT. Go figure.

Oh .... OK.

When I go there, I see in their eyes "How can I help you?!"

But now, the more that I think about it ... maybe it's "You need help."

Still 7€ is a deal for a camera bag with FOUR flashes in it !!!!

Joke's on you - I don't have a credit card And I've never been in debt - at least not to providers of financial services. Mate paying for a pint in the pub doesn't count
