    I agree, although I do like to look at the tripods, bags and sometimes the filters too.

    I love Seattle. I was there for a week, back in October. Sunny skies every day, which kind of bummed me out some due to the contrast, but what can you do. When I got there, my buddy told me, they up to like 25 days straight without rain. Water falls were so-so due to no rain.

    Can't wait to go back. It was my 2nd trip up there..

    Did you have a rental car? I think taking public transit was what got me, so depressing, lol

    I would too, if I knew where they were. And please don't tell me. One thing I hate about Kenmore Camera is their used gear selection and their assortment of bags. Every time I go in there I end up buying one or the other.

    Every time I visit Glazers I come out with almost $200 worth of film and chems. Which wouldn't be a bad thing if I shot more frequently...

    And I do look for you every time I'm there.

    That would be a good plan, too, except for that pesky part of not exactly knowing what you look like...

    Hmm... I'm terrible with names. Forget 'em before the handshake is even over. But faces I remember. And I'm pretty sure I've seen that face not too terribly long ago.

    Do you remember being at the Glazer's checkout counter (across the street in the analog building) when a rather oversized fellow (about 6-feet 6-inches, about 230-pounds, but not heavy-set) walked in the door? Blue jeans. Probably wearing a University of Idaho hooded gray sweatshirt? Might even have been wearing sunglasses (it wasn't November) for that quintessential Unabomber look?

    Would have been last summer some time. On a Saturday. This guy is hard to miss, which sometimes comes in handy, and other times he hates...

    An international incident in the making.

    How about we plan a mini get-together the next time Matt is in town? I promise not to fall asleep this time.
