    Nothing Perks-Up the Day Like a Box in the Mail from...

    Today it was ArtCraft... (early too! Thanks Mike!) Yesterday it was Pictorico. Monday it may be B&S or B&H, etc. It never fails. When the postal carrier brings a box to my door, I feel like a kid again. Nothing beats the rumble of the diesel and squeal of brakes on the big, brown UPS truck as it stops in front of my house. The guy knows me as I always meet him at the curb. Even though it symbolizes a drop in my already small bank account, it is still a thrill to cut open that box and part the popcorn packing to reveal the treasure inside. Time to brew some more Palladium Chloride, Ferric and Potassium Oxalate. Wooo Hooo!

    Am I the only one that still gets this thrill after all these years?

    Nope! I get jazzed when a package arrives too. It's like the key to the doors of opportunity landing in your hands.

    My favorite boxes are the lot buys from eBay and orders of miscellaneous stuff from AS&S (www.sciplus.com). It's so much more fun to open the box when you are not quite sure what is there. BTW, AS&S currently has stocks of Magicubes and Flipflashes if anyone is looking.

    The door bell rings and you run to the door and open it, it's like a Holiday, you take the package in your arms and say thank you then close the door and rush to open the package with that new camera, what a deal you got, the camera and lens, oh boy, oh boy; you open the box and WOW it's those film hangers you ordered the same day because you were so hyped to get the camera and lens you had to buy something you didn't need. Well crap that's a bust, maybe tomorrow it'll come. That feeling?

    Hi Dave,

    Not to get into a topic best not discussed here ... yes. I have been experimenting a lot with the process.
