    I think it would have to be something more like this...

    Build a new garage, do a ground up restoration on the Bimmer (it has a very nice, straight body but the powertrain is a little tired), get teh full 8x10 kit, hire a baby sitter for the weekend and then.....
    Wait a minute. Why were you taking the camera on that weekend? If you had time to use it your priorities are a tad off. Maybe you could schedule delivery of the camera for the monday after the toe curling weekend was complete. PLay your cards right and she won't even notice the package and the Bimmer would be the source of great memories.

    If you go with the Canham ( I have 4 ) over the <my opinion/experience> boat anchor that falls apart out of the box </my opinion/experience> I know how to get you the 8x10 at a fairly good price.

    Technology is not a panacea. It alone will not move your art forward. Only through developing your own aesthetic - free from the tools that create it - can you find new dimension to your work.

    I decided to go topless to work today. For a brief perspective see what I wrote about this in my blog.

    Robert, Yes, I have heard similar opinions. I tend to favor the Canham too. I will definitely be in contact if/when I sell the car (which, I fear I must - the one who must be obeyed has spoken. I'm not complaining mind you. Just noticing the way things are).

    Hmmm... a garage is most men's refuge, so therefore by selling the beamer and giving her the garage, you are giving up sooo much and deserve the new camera. Even steven...

    ...but toss in the piano stool for good measure. Then take your first photo with the new beast of her at the piano...

    It took me a bit to remember that you take a train to work, right? No wonder the BMW doesn't get many miles!

    Yes...that is correct. I take the train every chance I get. It is nice to have two hours a day to myself. I get a lot of reading done and now that gasoline is something like $2.75 a gallon, it's a pretty easy decision.
