They are all in near mint condition (including the wife), all that for finally $275 (excluding the wife, after 16 years, she is more expensive). A little cleaning in the next days, and do not search me for the next weekend, I will be on the dark side of the house.
YIPPEE!!! Way to go! Now you have an excuse to buy a 4x5 camera. Have fun, and let us know how it's all working out for you.
As to the PO'd wife, buy her a nice baubel, and a romantic dinner at her favorite restaurant, and for goodness sake give her at least as much attention as the new toys get.
