...a really cool combo birthday/Birth Day present. E knows not to buy me jewelry. I've been sending him research on digital SLRs; this is what sounded best for my needs.
Best of all, he got all romantic in its delivery (this, from the most non-romantic guy on the planet...must be taking lessons from my Dad, who is ultra-romantic to my Mom).
I came downstairs on my birthday to a dozen red roses and a little jewelry box (psych!)...opened the box, the foam ring holder read: SEE LID.
E had scrunched up a "Treasure Map" ("Authentic Map!" "Very Old!!"). There was a crude drawing of me, in my room, a line of dashes showing my progress to the kitchen, then down to our basement and into the closet under the stairs.
There it was! And I've been studying operation manuals ever since. Hey, I even installed the software to hook up the camera to our 'puter. That's how excited I am to start playing with this awesome camera.
