Dad bought me a Canonet 28 sometime in the late 70's when I
was 12 or 13. Loved that camera. Dropped it, bent the lens and
focusing got stiff.  I was afraid to tell anyone :-)  Don't really know
what happened to that camera, which is too bad.

Didn't have a "real" camera again until my ex wife's father bequeathed
some older manual Canon and 50mm lens on us in our early 20's.
