Well, I think I'd rather actually keep her at Golden Touch.
I just got back from the Boston (Waltham) show. (Well worth the 3 hour 
drive south!)
Having been "shooting for dollars" since 1985 all over the country and this 
was actually my FIRST ever camera show that my schedual has allowed. I'm 
extremely glad that they are only intermittent, 'tis an experience that I 
could easily become addicted to.

Thanks in part to all of those of you who were so kindly helpful and 
forthcoming on information about the M5, I purchased one of the three 
Black's that were at the show! I got a nice three lug, post 134XXXX model. 
I wouldn't have had a clue, of what exactly to look for without Ms. 
Krauter's most kind assistance in looking them over for me and giving me 
some recommendations. She also saved me a few bucks in the barter process 
by pointing out a few minor lacking points on the otherwise excellent body 
that I ended up with that I wouldn't known to look for. What a font of 
knowledge (and wry humour.)

So now I have had my full sized M (REALLY full sized!) for a whole 9 hours 
and I've already put four rolls through it! Can't wait to get to the 
processor's place early in the am to see what I get back. I am going to 
have happy photographer dreams tonight!

Also can't wait to find a flash bulb holder to fit it with and to start 
playing with some fill flash ala sylvania (or whatever I can find!)

Thanks again! This list sets the example of what the Internet should be all 

Carpe Lumen,
