    Has it ever occured to any of you, that if you'd mount a Ross lens on a Diana camera, you might call this mongrel a "Diana Ross"?

    It's a thought that won't go away from the back of my head. Maybe we should make this happen....

    Moreover, the pictures taken with this combination will be "Supremes"

    :D

    that's just the encouragement we needed - now there is no excuse anymore not to do this. Only thing we miss is a real Diana camera, all we have is a Porst Happy (diana-clone, also with good name)...the one we had was slaughtered for a good cause years ago...

    If you don't call it Miss Ross, it'll get really ornery.

    Hey that toilet paper is funny. I know someone who had Jane Fonda toilet paper. They sold it at a local military surplus store.
