Hi Peter,

Joe did a great job of arranging for a superb meal at another Vancouver hot 
spot. (I wonder if it is really possible to not have a perfect meal in 

The semi-annual Lug Dinners that co-incide with the Vancouver Camera Show 
and Swap Meet are always a wonderful chance to shake hands with friend's 
from the List.

We really are a diverse group with Leica's in common. I wonder if Brian Reid 
thought way back in the last century if this list would bring friendship to 
so many strangers.

Thanks for taking and posting pictures of my most difficult subject (Melissa 
as a teenager) as well as the rest of the Lug Gang!
