>Greetings to David and fellow LUG members...
>Thanks to everyone for the supportive messages and advice :)  Especially 
>to Douglas in Dublin, who told me a cheaper source for the missing 
>baseplate :)
>Sorry for the mass mailing; I returned from Belfast and Portadown this 
>afternoon, with 8 hours of sleep more or less since Friday morning.  
>Wanted everyone to know I'm fine, safe, healthy and unharmed.
>Two things quickly and I'll write a more detailed post tomorrow:
>One:  I met Gilles Perres and observed him using his Leicas-- of course.
>Two:  Nothing gets you instant respect among the photojournalist crowd 
>like having a Leica.  They may use other cameras for their own reasons, 
>but using my Leica seemed to tell them I was interested in what Gilles 
>called "thinking photography" and so my wanna-be self was able to walk 
>proud through the thicket of N90S's, the F5's, and the 1N's.
>More later when I'm coherent--
