found this outside my back door this morning, with a howling wind for spice. Today will be my first day with a bag for all weather use of my air cast on my ulcer wounded left ankle, should be interesting.
“Fantastic,” said the plastic surgeon looking at the healing of my heel, excuse the redundancy of that. A ferociously difficult drive through the steady rain down from Georgian Bay to downtown Toronto to St. Michael’s Hospital. It was like driving through a 100 mile long car wash. I really detest that dull silvery grey low visibility look like the inside of a dirty fish tank. With so much rain there was a ton of spray being whipped around by cars and trucks. I managed to pry my fingers off the steering wheel in the parking lot and schlepped over to the hospital with my aircast on soaking my open to the elements socked left foot. Must think of a plastic bag cover one of these days. A bit of slough (dead tissue) removed and a follow up appointment for the 2oth just five days before the big red suited guy lands. Clinic staff exceptionally upbeat, cheery, and energetic without being at all annoying about that, which was refreshing.

I had this for a time when they were fresh on the market and then I went back to an SLR, a Yashica FR and then a Nikon FG. This 35mm rangefinder with automatic exposure has a very sharp lens. The problem with this camera these days is solving the battery problem. Adapters are available online.
