How Was YOUR Christmas?

Ours was great, and is almost over.

I'm still trying to figure out why my prints come out exactly like they look on my monitor unless people are the subject, which results in too much red and much darker than they should be.
I got to use the IR remote my brother ordered from Hong Kong in July again.

Tried to buy another slave flash today using a gift card but it was sold-out everywhere due to a major price reduction because it's being discontinued.
Crap!! At the listed price I could have bought a bunch of them to sell for profit every time I taught someone how this clever flash stuff works.

As much as I want/need a specific lens for my camera system, getting a bass amp rig assembled is more important right now.
It's ironic that we'll be ordering a tube preamp/DI from B&H Photo in NYC, which is where I have gotten some essential camera stuff in the past during the holidays.

Hoping to find a decent used pickup truck this week while the sun is shining, and shooting next year's Christmas Card photo a few minutes later.

What the hell are you doing up at 5:50AM?
Oh yeah......kids.

You didn't miss much--Steve got knighted onstage by the Queen Of England only to have it revoked by the Duke Of Earl, Mike spent a LOT of time in the men's room, and David had us play Hashpipe twice plus Respect (which I don't even know) but skipped 2 of our best originals.

Great picture. I'd even go as far as to say "Wow!" Y'all make a great looking couple. We can't even get the camera to focus on "auto".
