    Hehehehehe ....

    Yeah, although I admit I've overdone it, and now I'm agonizing over paring down the pile a bit.

    A trip to your well organized collection of useful items is cheaper and faster than any trip to Home Depot or Lowes, and faster than ordering online.

    I was not brought up in poverty; but it runs in my family to keep a collection of useful things. Stuff is purged as it is used or when the space is needed for something of greater purpose or value.

    Don't pare the pile down. Stop giggling, die and, perhaps, win.

    I don't enter competitions that require winners to die.

    Ah - but no one gets out alive!

    I keep telling My Faire Spouse that if I croak she can call in MonBack Brothers and have it trucked away, no guilt -- I won't know!

    A few months ago I decided I had too many cameras, estimating the total to be around sixty.

    After selling some and giving others away, I counted up what remained and was shocked to find seventy one!

    I have all ways had to have 2 of everything I use when related to photography. Even if I never use the first one, I have a backup just incase something happens to the one I don't use.
    Then if I decide to sell something, I allways need it 2 weeks later since I sold both.
    Crazy ain't it.

    I'm afraid that someday I will need it and won't have it. Want to see my stash of photo Kodak printing paper?

    Exactly!

    Even better, as a singleton I don't have to justify my 'collection' to anyone!

    *closes eyes and listens to blissful silence*
    Cheers,

    Jim.

    My "problem" is the opposite. I have a spouse that won't throw anything out if somehow you can imagine a distant future use. I prefer space.. empty space is what I would like to hoard. Even the garage which is filled with bits of wood and old bicycle parts and nearly empty paint cans waiting to be recycled, would be a dream come true for me if it was empty and I could make it what I want it to be... another place for making still life photos.
    Let me rest my eyes on an empty room.
