Two things

A whine: My camera was supposed to have been delivered yesterday. Except that it didn't come. UPS appears to have lost it. However, I have a lovely 50mm lens, as well as a 17-40mm that I have enjoyed holding and looking at. My new Bogen tripod is lovely too.

A warning: People on the Lake Walk are whack at 7 AM. This morning a woman stalked me for over half an hour wanting me to tell her everything that I know about photography (which isn't much), and then trying to get me to go to her for cosmetic surgery (she was a physician). She even made me program her phone number into my cell so that I could call her to set up an appointment, despite the fact that I expressed no interest in having cosmetic surgery.

I enjoy meeting new people and chatting, but DAMN!

I'm glad it wasn't DHL.

Start photographing her - that can drive people nuts in my experience. If nothing else you can post her picture.
I should have asked to take her photo. That would have been fun. :-)

DHL is the only carrier that I haven't had problems with. The guy who delivers to our neighborhood is always super friendly too.

Isn't that strange? People can become very aggressive, defensive and paranoid when they are photographed.

DHL can lose a package as easily as FedEx and UPS, it's kind of a miracle that more aren't lost. You should see the piles of boxes at each station that have the wrong address on them. It can take more than a few calls to get them to the right place.
I have faith that your camera will meet up with your lenses. Maybe it can be a Christmas miracle. I love that you're enjoying your new lenses and tripod.
