    To All:

    I am pleased (once again) to confirm that Camera 8.1 (Nikon) arrived safely yesterday, a full one year, one month, and ten days after it was first launched on June 14th of 2011.

    Much kudos, in the end, to Ralph Javins for the finest and most secure packaging job imaginable. Let’s just say I have enough bubble wrap for ten cameras now. Seems like Ralph was not about to risk damage in transit after all this time.

    The camera is in great condition. The flimsy battery holder, although not broken, was secured by someone along the way. Thanks to whoever did this!

    The package picked up a couple of hitchhikers along the way:

    1) Buried deep into the vinyl camera case was a bunch of lapel pins from Manitoba. There are seven of them total, all courtesy of The Banana, who intended them as souvenirs for those who shot after him. It seems most, if not all, missed them, because if you didn’t dig your hand deep into the camera case, you probably didn’t even know they were there. Anyway, I have seven Manitoba lapel pins. I will keep one, and include six of them in the package for Camera 9.

    2) AHEM: Whoever threw in the single latex glove – please explain this. It appears clean, but I didn’t look (or smell) too closely.

    Finally – waiting on the status of Camera 8.2. Simplicius is about to come through. I am sure Síle has the APUG goonsquad mobilizing, just in case.

    Will keep you posted on the processing status shortly.

    Regards,

    Shawn
