    Two words: gift cards.

    My family are all under strict instructions to *never* buy me any photo gear.

    I can always count on you guys for good information and some good laughs. Although I wouldn't be the least bit unhappy to have a beseler 67 with a color head that comes out of my photography budget. Film and a 150mm lens for the 645 take priority and maybe something like an ftb or spotmatic to replace the fed 5v I'm using for 35mm. I hate getting gift cards because I never get them for the places that have what I want.

    I still love my red. Original model too. She is a great wife, and wonderful mother.
    Not the greatest organiser, and don't tell her important things at breakfast, because they won't sink in, but knowing her weaknesses is where I try to fit in my strengths.
    Let her shop all she wants for clothes from the catalogs that land at our door. She can buy whatever she wants, as long as if fits away into one of her two closets of three dressers; she pays for it.

    When it comes to Christmas gifts, she shops, and we split the bills.
    I wrap and decorate the home; we split meal and treat cooking duties most of the year, and Christmas time also.
    If it is a gift that I want, I buy it, and wrap it, and put her name on the 'from' tag.

    She heads off at least once a year to do a community theatre play. That means I need to get more organised than usual getting the rest of the clan around when she is out.
    The up side is that there are at least 6 weeks of three rehersals a week when I can disappear to the darkroom after the kids (presently 8 and 11) are sent up to read before bed.
    There there are three weekends of performances when major weekend sessions can be undertaken, if I have planned things right.

    I try to build up enough sleep over credits hosting other pals of our kids at our places over weekends during the rehersal period that I sometimes barely see anyone in the house when the run is on. That lets some great marathon darkroom sessions to be undertaken. Times like that I usually devote to large prints on FB papers, because the handling and washing and drying takes such a long time until you yield a sometimes toned, spotted and mounted print ready to take a place of prominence in the living room.
    my real name, imagine that.

    I didn't realize this thread turned into a redhead discussion - I feel compelled to say that having been with only one (unfortunately) they are completely crazy and worth every single bit of the trouble. I always find it amusing that people's opinions all or nothing when it comes to gingers. I'm one of those types that will double back on the street just for a second look.

    My flickr and (gasp!) dpug photos - take a look if you like.

    I preferred Mary Ann to Ginger.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Mike - Sounds like you and your red have figured out what works for your family. Bravo!

    Too many couples build up resentments, keep a tally of failures, and never really work out an amicable balance.



    Mary-Ann? Agent 99? You guys are definately showing your age!

    roflmao @ the Ginger vs Mary-Ann and agent 99. Ann-Margret or Mary-Ann or 99? Yep my age is showing too Mary-Ann beats out Ginger but Ann-Margret got me hooked on redheads at 12.
