Dear friends, and I mean that not merely as a salutation.
Thank you very much for your kind letters. I was not seeking sympathy nor do I deserve it. I am so embarrassed.
I thought I would take a respite from Camera Collector for a few days to get my brain back in gear. I still feel badly about erasing an entire thread and I still don't know how I did it. But I am glad nobody ordered me exiled or beheaded at dawn.
Going without CC and its very special people for these few days has left a gaping hole in my daily ritual.
I am not usually subject to blue funks or being down in the dumps. But neither am I a back slapping cheerful Charlie. I'm just your average mild mannered introvert. No more tantrums from me I promise.
Now I have some catching up to do.
I am not naming all the letter writers. Should I omit one I would really merit decapitation.
Once again, Thank you.

BUSINESS I have a number of old and not so old cameras that do not conform to everyone's idea of what a camera should look like and/or behave. Some are that way just for the sake of being different. Others are different to meet the needs of form follows function. But all are oddities for some reason or other. A fairly familiar example might be the 1840 Voigtlander Daguerreotype 'Canon' that is on the cover of the McKeown's Cameras of 2001-2002.
Could a thread of Oddities be of interest to enough members to justify itself?

You and your wife would be most welcome at the Oberman Arms. There is lots of room. There is even a private basement apartment, if one wishes privacy, that is at ground level so it is not too basementy. Decor is authentic 1972.
Indeed, the red carpet is out for any CC'er.
I know I am a disgrace when it comes to electronics but I am a pretty good tour guide/chauffeur when it come to showing off my favourite city.
