Oouuch!!!

This is going to be one costly month. One good thing though, I got my car back, but it did cost me $ 2150.00. Then pre-oredering the camera { with the grip B-11, that comes to $4000.00(also pre-paid half of that}. I also had to renew my drivers license yesterday and failed the eye test, so I had to go to a doctor to get an eye exam, turnes out I need new glasses, while I'm at it, might order a spare as well, oooops, cost for that $1.180.00, also got layed off yesterday, due to lack of work.

Yikes, Stephan! That's one lousy month right there, for sure! You're due a few breaks, for sure. Here's hoping for some speedy and satisfying employment for you.

Stephan, just noticed the price of your eye glasses ($1,180.00), seems rather steep for 2 pair of glasses, are they made of gold?

Stephan,

I am so sorry to hear you got laid off. I do trust and pray you will find other work soon.

But hey, until then now you have more time to play with your new camera! When do you think you will be getting the new camera?
