How nice for you! You now have the sharpest damn hunk of glass in the
history of [Envy]the modern universe as we know it.
I hope you shoot the heck out of it. [Envy] It's time to document your
world! [Envy] Catalog all your earthly goods. If you have a wife of SO
make them happy by shooting them wearing their best hat not downlighted.
[Envy] It's an awesome honor owning that lens. You may be called to
defend the universe with it. Should that time occur I hope you have all
your senses tuned to the highest peak. (Try pinball).
