    So, you didn't way whether he accepted your offer. Was it a wonderful holiday with your husband, or a wonderful holiday from your husband?!? :o

    Paul, he came with me. I took him around Rome, Amalfi Coast, Venice and Germany to catch up with relatives and then he went home and I went to Paris.
    Dear hubby couldn't stay as long because of lack of babysitters. The children had to stay home. Can't miss school of course.

    If you have to ask for moral support here --- maybe, just maybe you aren't experienced enough or equipped for this level of domestic negotiation.

    From someone who has survived a heart attack I have to tell you this you cannot take it with you.

    Me -- I already have one so nah!!!! I don't NEED it.

    Well Bruce, if you have a few more cameras like that one and a nice darkroom, I'll marry you!

    I don't have a husband anymore but I have lots of cameras and photo gear

    (Please send pictures of camera and darkroom.)

    My other half just talked me into buying a 54 enlarger!

    At least thats how I see it: She comes home on day and tells me the guy at the local lab is selling one... then sugguests we go round and see it... then arranges for me to go round and collect/pay for it... then she pulls the switch and points out I just blew all that money on a new enlarger! Any sugguestion that I was pushed is definiatly forbidden.

    I cunningly got myself a few momments breathing space by diving into one of my many piles of junk and pulling out a 110 neg carrier which fits the new enlarger perfectly . She's a Pentax A110 fan - I'd had the carrier for years, saving it for just such an occasion, so I'd look good!!.

    Now my 54 enlarger is her 110 enlarger (albeit slightly overkill :-)), she's talking of a new project of LARGE prints, I'm broke, and in trouble for spending all the money... I think I was connned :-)

    It is a nice enlarger though...

    Maybe it's better if your wife isn't interested in your photography

    Why Neal, you DO care!

    I agree it is a nice kit.... and the sailing idea could work but would take too long. Jorge's "make a camera plan" could work as well. But honestly I wouldn't get a divorce over a zone vi 4x5. If it's going to cost you half of everything you own, you should at least buy an Ebony or maybe a larger format.
    Just trying to be helpful.

    Same in California. She'll probably take the film holders and lenses. All you'll have are pieces of wood and a bellows.

    Well, ok, but how do we keep my wife from finding out?

    Two years ago, I bought my wife a Mini-Cooper for her birthday. She looked at it, looked at my photography equipment, and said, "We are almost even."

    Get the camera, but share the wealth--or debt.
