I'm making Gumbo this afternoon, sort of a last dinner for my neighbor of 20
years who is moving away this week.  So while it cooks, I thought I'd set
this down.

 I'm still enjoying my M8, especially since I got that M6 and I've I've been
shooting  film again, and I remember how it was before Leica digital.  One
thing that my "new" m6 came with  is Griptac skin from

I thought it might help my M8, so I sent away for the kit, and it arrived
yesterday.  It's not too hard to apply, easier than changing the leather on
my old MDa was with the dried out skin.

 I also recently had some custom length camera straps made up at a local
tack shop.  I was amazed at the quality of leather, and the price!

Here's a look:
