I have a friend named Lloyd who went out and got a bunch of Leica M6 stuff just
like his pal Mark.
He does not seem like his name and prefers to be called by his initials.
I tell him "Lloyd if you don't like your name change it I can't remember your
damn initials"
I call him LBJ sometimes but that's not quite it. 

Maybe he'll grow up to be tough!
I've got to figure out who to will my Leica system to!
I'd like to will them to the same plane of nonexistence I end up in.
