One good thing about rain on a Saturday morning is that the line for the Confessional Booth is not very long. This will not take too much time before it is my turn.
. . . .
Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned.
Yes, Father, I know that it has been a while, but I really have not transgressed in a long time. No boxes from KEH for months now. But that John has been telling me for a long time that I should have a Nikon F3HP and that I would appreciate and understand why it was considered to be an outstanding example of its type and a true working camera when it was the current model being offered to the professional photographer community. Now that I have one with the MD-4 Motor Drive attached to the bottom of the F3HP, I think that I do understand why this solid feeling camera was considered to be an excellent work-horse camera for the active working photographer, who was also young and strong. You really do notice it on a neck strap.
Well, it did come with a couple of short zoom lenses, and a NIKKOR 105mm f:2.5 and a 300mm f:4.5 lenses also, so it seemed like a very nice package kit.
Oh. Well, yes, Father, you are right. I did make the decision to buy the camera, didn't I? And, yes, John was not reaching into my wallet and pulling the money out for me. Yes, I actually did it. So, yes, Father, I will contritely accept my penance.
Thank you, Father. See you next week.
