It is a long story, but the short version is my dad is in his 80ís and has been unable to buy much for me for many years. Due to a change in circumstances he has a bit more spending money and decided to spend some on something he thought I would like. Heís also a great bargain hunter and found it local to him at a fantastic price. On top of the camera he provided a Sony 28 f2, 85 f1.8, and for my birthday the 24-105 f4! And yes Iíve told him he shouldnít spend money like this on me. He isnít exactly listening.
My dad passed away 30 years ago, I don't suppose I could share yours?.......... He sounds like a really good man

I really love him. And no you canít have him. I worry every day about him and wish he was closer physically.

Yup, you're lucky you still got him. I've been thinking, lately, how little we preserve of the wisdom of the ancestors. Get it while it's still available. Now that I'm an old grand-dad, myself, with no living ancestors, I sometimes find myself thinking, "I wish I'd paid more attention...".
I already kick myself for not making hours and hours of recordings of my grandmother.
