Thanks guys. We're not quite empty nesters yet, but the day is coming quick. My son was home for Spring break last week - was nice having him home, but he's very much into his own schedule and priorities now, as he should be. My daughter has a few months to go, and overall she's ready.
FWIW, I got the Epson 1280 tuned up and running. I printed the plane silhouette big, and I'm happy. And I bought some FP4+ 4x5 film to see if there's a difference shooting good, fresh film rather than the Arista stuff I've always shot. Hope to try that out today. And a roll of Acros 120 is hanging from last week at the Elwood Park zoo. I'm starting to remember this.
