    Default The long wait!!



    I ordered a new finder/guidescope ( Lunatico )and a few new bits of glass last week! They are arriving today. This morning seems to be dragging so slowly while waiting for the van! I'm up and down like a yoyo going to the door at everything that sounds like a van!

    Hopefully they will be here while I still have my hair

    Is it just me or do we all suffer from this type of nervous disposition when it comes to waiting for new gear?

    I suspect that this behavior is absolutely normal.

    I would suggest that you hide all clocks at this point as they are your enemy!

    Other than that all I can offer is good luck!

    Fresh baked bread, some cheese, some black olives, and a flask of good wine sometimes makes the time pass faster.

    And I'm still pacing about!! The cheese has been eaten, the wine has also been slurped and I'm no closer!
