TO have all my kids here with their families. Amazing how little we need as we get older.
Oh, gifts... Money is always welcomed.
A freezer full of Ilford Art 300 paper comes to mind (from a selfish perspective), but I'd settle for a year without close relatives passing away (last 2.5 years have been rough that way).
Photo wise, I got mine. A secret santa sent me a Hasselblad 500ELX and 5 rolls of 125PX.
Life wise, I will not. The Ex refuses to let me see my son while I'm deployed and tells me that she throws away anything I send him. I'll be back in court once I return to take care of that.
I can't really answer this truthfully, as the Political Correctness police would pounce on me. Anyway, second choice would be a Stanley of Derby Ashworh-Hepplewhite-Gray lamp.
An OLD man here at my school told us one of the stories about Santa Claus.. Saint Nicolaus. He was one of the bishops chosen by the pope to decide what Christianity (and the Bible) should be about, but he was apparently a man of his own mind, so he protested in some things in that regard.
He was then put to jail.
One night he was getting a visit from the Arc angle Michael, that told him, he would get his freedom and respect, bu tin return he was to give mankind the greatest gift of all: The gift of tomorrow....
I have a good life - a beautiful girlfriend - a job - a hobby - too many cameras and lenses to use, so I'll "settle" for "tomorrow".
Merry Christmas all!
I have changed my dream gift. What I want is an M9 a 1.0 Noctilux and a black cat. I want this so I can take scads of ' black cat at midnight' pics post them to flikr and become king of the cat pic takers.:whistling:
