I'm so excited that I have to write you this...

My fiancée and I will be married this 16 of september.
This morning, I was walking around a well known camera dealer in brussel
(near St. Boniface for the belgian people) and saw a Leica M3 in the shop. I
entered, inspected the camera, and baught it. I had the plan to offer it to
my girlfriend, as a wedding gift. This was so because I ennoy her now for
more than six months with all the Leica docs I collected from the web,
because I'm fond of the M6. Listening to me with such a kindness, she didn't
stay unreceptive to the Leica addiction, and found the M3 the best camera of
all. So, I come back home this midday, with a mystery look on my face, and,
in a sudden, give her the camera. She was totally astonished by it, then,
with also another, even more mystery look on her face, she asked me if I
wanted also a wedding gift now, because it wasn't complete yet. I said yes.
and then... ho, what happend, she gave me a brand new M6 TTL 0.72 silver
chrome, apologizing herself for there was not yet the 35 summicron asph with
it. The rest is a little bit to intimate to describe, but, ho boy, what a

This is totally real, and if not, I don't want to awake, what a wonderful
girl I have...

The M3 is an early one, double stroke, sn 740198, with a summicron 50 sn
The M6 has sn 2495878.

at least, M...
