Sure ... blame it on a dead American entrepreneurial hero.

I'm too bloated to be very witty at the moment ... We all went out to the Chinese buffet and I stuffed my face with Nems, shrimp and frog legs +++ .... Mmmm !!! But I'm paying the price now ...

My bed is calling, so say "Bonne nuit, Gracie."

a post was recently made to a thread on the FF Forum that The Princesses are 'Discontinued' at Digital Rev
Digital Rev? Isn't that the same place that shows the DA 50/1.8 available as Pre-Order?

Now now, Gracie, not everybody sleeps 24 hours a day. I know there are cultural differences, but really...

I'm thinking this thread is more like the Waltons. The end of every episode everyone says "goodnight Johnboy" but you know it's not over! There is more to come the next day! And since that show ran for like a decade, I see the same from this!! I expect in 2024 some newbie is going to post " what the (bleep) is a K-3 and why does everyone hate it so?"

Sir: You have been around here long enough to remember (from the old days) that a 300 word essay is a Sunday afternoon post for me.
Don't worry you get stuck I'll help you write it. As everyone knows I am nothing but verbose. 300 words? No problem. That's maybe 5 minutes work for me, snicker....

As for why I didn't post much last night, I was busy gluing yet more tiny AB crystals to the white Oly, and no, I'm still not quite done. I've got 2 more packs to glue on that one at least. I'm getting there though. I'm about 9/10 done with the white one and I completely finished the chrome one last night. It's taken me a lot more time than I ever thought it would to do this. I'm beginning to understand why they charge 1K and up for one of these when it's done by some couture designer. It takes a lot more time and crystals than you'd ever think. I'm not even trying to bling the whole camera, just the front panels to where the sides start. It's taken me forever to get this far. They look great when they are on there and dry, but when it comes to working with them I definitely prefer the stick on junk crystals to working with the real thing. It's so much easier and faster than using real Swarovski and fussing with the E6000 glue...

Mags, we went up to the circus a couple of weeks ago and the family sitting behind us had a nice shiny red K-30 clickin' away. Thought of you, and was sitting there picturing it all blinged up!

Hey ... "Johnboy" ... that's pretty close there to home. Surely, I am "Jean" and a boy ...

So, stop calling me Shirley !!!
