Hi GW,

Sorry to hear you needed the surgery, but who needs a stinking gall bladder anyway -- best to get rid of those superfluous organs. . .they're nothing but trouble, and weigh you down. . .

The new stuff should motivate a speedy recovery! . . . but I'll add my wishes for one anyway -- but I'm sure that getting new stuff works better --at least that's how it would be for me --

Let me know what you think of the CC -- I really like mine, and use it about every day right now with the FA*300/4.5 + AFA on the K-7 and Sigma 180 Macro + AFA on the K20 -- easily the best way to carry two bodies with big lenses without having them banging around.

I do get a lot of strange looks though. . .

Scott

Drugs are good. When Dan had his out his anesthesiologist wasn't happy - Dan had an asthma attack when they put him under. He had it out in an outpatient clinic where they keep you just overnight, but there was no doctor. They didn't like his oxygen levels so they admitted him to the hospital across the street, "just in case". A couple of days after he had it out, we had a huge snowstorm - 30 inches in one night. He ended up having to help dig out the Jeep Wrangler, which I managed to get stuck just beyond the driveway. He does NOT recommend that type of activity right after surgery!

All appear to be top quality items and I can't wait to get to feeling better so I can try them out!

BTW, I'm in a lot of pain right now so, any typo's or statements that don't make sense I'll blame on the Pain medication.
Sorry to hear you are in pain old friend. Hope it ends soon and your recovery is 100%.

As everyone else has said, hope you recover quickly mate, just think of the new gear as an incentive to rest up properly so you can get out in the field quicker.

GW, with you if it isn't one thing it is another! You know the old saying: The doctor told me to cheer up, because things could be worse, so I cheered up, and sure enough, things got worse. But you have demonstrated repeatedly that you have a resilient spirit that will see you through once again. And you don't have to have had surgery to make typos or fall asleep at the keyboard, either - I do it repeatedly.
