Thanks Piers!  I'm never far from the list, but I haven't had much time
with the cameras lately, and my stuff is all old, except for the EM-1iii
that showed up a couple weeks ago.  A year ago I was heavily involved in
eldercare.  Mom passed away last October and I was involved in getting her
condo cleared out, etc.

We need a better term than alumni for our dearly departed.  "Pantheon"
comes to mind for those who have joined Maitani.  "Olympians."  What do you
think?  I think you have a classical education, no?

I was poking around in the archives and discovered some idle question I'd
asked Chuck that got him going.  I met him in the flesh one rainy night in
Grinnell, Iowa, with AG presiding over pizza.  He didn't say too much, but
he laughed a lot.  His 5Dmkii was the first I had seen outside the trade
magazines.  I think he met up with others on that trip.  Moose, perhaps?
