    Just For Seven Days !
    I'm going on vacation tomorrow, to Bermuda !
    It will be my first vacation in 9 years with the XE-7,
    and Co., And My Final Few Rolls Of Kodachrome !
    I'm more excited to be reunited with my favourite
    camera and film, than the actual vacation time.

    And it's all thanks to APUG !

    After last years vacation, I realized that I needed to
    Ditch The Digital. I started looking around to buy
    some film holders and I came across APUG.
    At first I checked out the site for a few days, and
    didn't see the need to register, or subscribe.
    But then I realized that after nine years of digitalism,
    that everyone else was on the bandwagon too.
    So there was no locals left to talk to about photography
    or darkroom work. Then I realized that an APUG subscription
    was a worthwhile investment. And I was really in shock when
    I went to the camera shop to buy film, and found out Kodachrome
    was discontinued. So much changed in such a few short years.
    Thanks to Sean we have this great community to help us out.

    And where else would PE be able get his nuggets cracked
    so thoroughly. I'm amazed by the rubbish that gets dumped on him
    sometimes. Thankfully he keeps coming back for more !

    Hey - have a great time - sorry I missed you at Stony Brook - perhaps the fall will work out better for a few LI outings.

    Thanks Benji,

    I just realized that I forgot
    the Cigars, but I remembered
    the Vodka ! It would be nice
    to do a little APUG'ing while
    I'm away. Maybe I can find an
    Internet Cafe on the island, so
    that I can keep up with things.
    I would hate to miss out on any
    of LXDudes' Shenanigans !!!

    Thanks Bob, I will be in touch when
    I get back. I'll be ready to go out
    when the Island cools down !!!

    PE (I would sign it "Ron" but then it might confuse some! :wink: )

    Bermuda! Been there twice. Loved it every time, but didn't enjoy Emily in 1987.

    One has to ask but did Emily enjoy your attentions :D She might still be traumatized 13 years later . . . . . . .

    So the Wind Cried Mary . . . . . .

    Have fun Ron.

    I'm off around the Aegean/Med in 2 days, the wonderful Dubrovnik, really great people, Venice, well fortunately it's in Italy and they only let the riff raff emigrate to the US :D

    Bari, the wife says is dangerous I found th locals really great, more wonderful Italians.

    Then Greece and Olympia, they were poor architects in Sparta, the Stadium at Aphrodisias is far more impressive.

    The only dilemma is what formats. 6x6 6x17, 5x4 and dddddggggtttll.

    The 6x17 needs an outing so that makes the choices simpler, but it would only be used here.

    What are you drinking? I want some of it! Then again, no, because apparently, it makes you lose count. 2010-1987=?
