Well if you can lug around the suitcase full of hundred dollar bills it would take to buy it carrying the lens shouldn't be a problem.

I usually only log into the regular forum version on my laptop when I post new photos. These days I very rarely log on to my desktop.

It would be nice if they were stacked. When I visit the forum from a laptop I see one and a half, with the resolution set at the max.

When I visit the forum from my dual display CAD desktop they are small.

Removing a cuties bra?

How can that be gross?

Certainly nowhere near as gross as hociR.

Almost a five hour drive E/SE from Poitiers ... the in-laws live at Clermont-Ferrand (home of Michelin) which is not far away from there. The "Vichy" regime of the WWII era can still be a sensitive subject here ... but, Vichy table clothes are "OK". J
When I was young my grandmother showed me her old photo album including a few B&W prints she had made of Marshall Petain on his visit to Adelaide in 1919. He seemed to be on the jetty at Glenelg.

That's very interesting ... in 1919, Pétain was of a "national hero" status in France, as I understand it ... with the Vichy Government of WWII and afterwards, history was (and historians were) not so kind to him ... still a topic of "debate" at times IMHO ... J

We have two, mostly outdoor, cats. One of them got one of these last summer. It was NOT a fun experience. Being the resident nurse, guess who got to play vet & get it out of the screaming, hissing cat? That's right! This gal!

I did take the cat to a real vet once I got the wound cleaned & could see just how bad it was.

I recently presented a paper to the International Balderdash Association entitled, "Is There a Known Link Between hociR and Botflies"?
