    Just tell me one thing, why does a woman need 15 pairs of shoes? [/QUOTE]

    Count your self lucky, my wife has over 70 yes 70 pairs in their boxes in the closet. But, she doesn't say anything to me when I buy a camera.

    I do not see a problem here. Show her the door, she will either stop her hissy fit or leave. Either way you are better off.

    You earn the money, so you are allowed to get things for yourself. Just because she is not interested in photography is not a reason to stop buying. I am sure she buys things that your are not interested in. Tell her to no longer buy things that you do not care about. The song will change real fast.

    Tell Graham that I have the bank account open
    The best way to combat gas is not having budget, none. A car without fuel doesn't run, unless you're going down to a valley.

    A friend of mine at work likes old cars. His wife told him he can't have any more. So he asked if I had any spare room in my garage.

    Idiot me! I forgot...
    Tell Graham that if he needs a new storage for his cameras, he can send me some. I promise good use on all kinds of Rangefinders, hasselblads, rolleis, mamiya RB & RZ.

    :rolleyes:

    I actually thought I had GAS on the run for a while. I hadn't bought any gear for about 6 mos or so. Last weekend I bought a Zorki 4 at the Hymers Fall Fair. Sonnar copy jupiter 8 lens, and all the shutter speeds work. $25. Just one drink......

    Attending a support meeting on Apug for photographers with GAS while also surfing for gear on ebay is like going to an AA meeting at happy hour at a bar attached to a discount liquor store.
