Right. Question 4. (It would be too easy to start at question 1, so we'll start at 4, then jump to 56, and so on)
Anyway, Question 4: When you wake up, what's the first thing you think about - (and yes, this is a multipe choice question)
a) lutefisk.
...
h) Donald's hair feathers.
i) ...
j) The hociR
There. Fixed that.

Otherwise our All Mighty Mod might take that for a political comment ...

Got home in time to find Otis had indeed done some " appreciatin' " today, he is a squirrel of his word......mostly! Apparently a few "regular" Pentaxians are now Site Supporters ........so Otis says. Check your avatars......I guess he wasn't kiddin'?
Oh Wow!
Thank you Otis!
I was a site supporter when I first joined, and have bought cameras, etc via the forum from B&H and Adorama, but it's been awhile.
In your honor I let this bird seed thief go free without launching a big glass of ice cold water in his direction. (haven't nailed one yet)



PS, Tell Rupert he's looking good................. after the trim.

Well I never! Thanks Rupert! Or should I thank Otis?

Thank you Otis (and Rupert)!
You guys thank Otis and his new "Appreciation Society", not me. Otis is the one with the cash.
I think there are a few more he covered last night, and he said he plans to make this a frequent activity, so if he missed someone this time, maybe next time he'll get 'em?

Why?...you ask? I have no idea what goes on in Otis' little head, but my guess would be he is atoning for past sins, in which case Otis had better have a lot of cash stuffed back!

BTW- Otis said "You guys are welcome...enjoy!"

Otis thanks you for your poor aim and wishes you continued failure! I think he means that in a "good way".

I sometimes get admonished by my wife for my poor aim.

Otis fully understands.....he aims to please, and often does, but realizes you can't please everyone...but he doesn't stop tryin'!

Reminds me......(I hear the Oh no!, not a long winded Rupert again!)

I spent about an hour in the Barber Shop talking with Piper yesterday. Interesting little small shop, where she is the owner/operator and the only barber. Until I grew the beard, I hadn't been in a Barber Shop in 40 years...but do have two Chocolate Girlfriends that own a Beauty Shop and I deliver chocolate to them weekly and sit and visit.....I know them well, and most all their customers too.

Here is something I have learned from both places......a good Barber or Beautician has your views on most everything from politics to religion. Watching and listening how they maneuver those views is a valuable course in diplomacy like you won't find in any book. Their true views? You will never know....that's how good they are! They could spend hours in the old P&R every day and never make an enemy....amazing!

Regards!

No, not really. He's not the first to figure out that bribery works. He's pretty smart for a tree rat.

...and the average tree rat is smarter than the majority of people

Otis is highly recommending I cancel on the K1, and encourages all his friends to boycott it. He just got a copy of the K1 manual, and went right to the new "S" squirrel setting on the main dial.....

Name:  S-Setting  K1.jpg
Views: 227
Size:  147.8 KB

Nope...he does not approve the K1.

Don't buy it guys! When Pentax says its a "Killer Camera"....they aren't kidding!


I'm certain this must be a pre-production manual? I will hate to have to send my new K1 back if it isn't. ......however, this could actually boost sales!

Regards!

I'll lock it away in safe place if you send it to me.

I'm sure Otis has my address
