Hi everyone,

Well am I excited or what! A great Christmas gift! YAHOO! :)

I just received a phone call telling me I had been nominated for the Life
Time Achievement Award by  CAPIC..."The Canadian Association of
Photographers & Illustrators in Communications."  (CAPIC), Canada's
premiere association of visual communicators.

This is akin to being nominated for an Oscar and winning! :) :)

On March 26 in Toronto I'll receive the award at a big wing ding affair! It
can't get any better than this. :)

I may just go out and buy myself a new M6 and a couple of lenses to celebrate!:)
My wife on the other hand will have other ideas of celebrating. :) None of
which have the word Leica attached.

Howver this only happens once in a lifetime, so maybe I can do a real sweet
talk job on her and she wont complain ____TOO___ much! :)

Just wanted to share this wonderful news with the LUG family and the
world!:) I had heard some rumours, but I never put much creedence in things
like that as it's always someone else who gets nominated and wins. Me? Damn
it's great!:)

Yes teddy, there really is a Santa Claus after all. :)

Going to be a tough night to get to sleep! :) :) Hell who cares. :)
