- I'm losing a lot of my contemporaries and friends to stokes, cancer and the like and there is no guarantee that if I wait I will be here to buy at the "proper market price"

So, what the heck - I buying myself my new toy and if you promise not to be to critical of my efforts I may even tell you how I get on with it

I'm now waiting like a kid for his promised Christmas Present
That's what I like to hear. My dentist wants to put crowns in my mouth, but I'm not prepared to sink all that money into my mouth when a filling will be sufficient & the cash can go to exciting toys that someone else can enjoy if I, for any reason, am not able to. Any excuse to add to my toys.
I fiddle with violins (when I'm not fiddling with a camera).
