Have a good time, I'll be working on an expansion of my darkroom, the NuArc and Durst 5X7 need their space and the main needs more counter space for Carbon, working in the sink and one small counter just isn't cutting it anymore. Had I gotten the transmission put in the Dodge Ram a couple of weeks earlier I'd be on the road to Joshua Tree tomorrow, instead I got a load of lumber for the darkroom. That burned up $3500 too at a trusted local garage that could have funded a couple of nice trips. That's the way it goes.

My biggest regret is not being able to see Jim's cameras and prints, that's a let down that I agonize over. What can a person do in this case?

Best to all,
