    Really? He washes your windshield? I can't even get him to pump my gas!

    Well, you really need to know how to treat your indentured servants. A disrespectful servant is a reflection of the owner. You need to look in the mirror Rick. Do you like what you see? Neither does Michael. Hence no gas.

    - gasp - Sebastian, you are right. All this time, I thought it was Michael and the problem was really with me! I should have known that time I asked him to write my dissertation and he said no. Or that time I told him to dive into the lake and grab that fish that wouldn't bite my line and he told me to go take a hike. It was my fault. Michael, can you ever forgive me?

    Re: What would you take?

    Rick,

    Always remember to treat your servant as you would want to be treated if your entire livelihood lay in the hands of a fickle egomaniac with an egregiously high sense of self-entitlement.

    That's respect.

    Advice on the 1.4 noted logged and accepted. 2.0 out, 1.4 in.

    If I take Michael am I going to need a bigger bag or does he fold?

    Re: What would you take?

    I'm not sure I'd call it "folding." I'm not sure what you'd call it exactly. But he does manage to fit into my camera bag pretty well. By the way, Michael, the next time you're carrying my camera bag with you in it, remember to pack extra potato chips okay? I ran out way too early last time.

    You're a dear.

    I think there was a Japanese word for it, I'll try to dig it up. It really is amazing to watch. First servant I ever had that meets airline carry-on rules. The old ones were such a pain to check all the time. And when your servant ends up in Dallas and you land in Houston, who gets your bags for you?

    I think the word has "Michael" in it and rhymes with "oragami." Maybe we're thinking of different words though.

    "First servant I ever had that meets airline carry-on rules."
    Oh, you must have had him before the weight gain then!

    "And when your servant ends up in Dallas and you land in Houston, who gets your bags for you?"

    Yeah he had to walk from Memphis to DC once when the airline screwed up my luggage. Michael, how did you make that trip in one night? That Michael, always full of surprises.

    Re: What would you take?

    HAHAHA! Looks like I'm not going to be making this trip after all. I have way to much work to do with all the windows that need washing at Ricks place, and running to the store for milk. Boy, I hope he doesn't want it fresh from the cow again. That bull sure took a liking to me the last time I tried to milk it...

    Oh, and to get from Mephis to DC, Trevor gave me a ride on his bike. Of couse he made me to all the peddling.,,

    I dunno Sebastian. Michael has been working awful hard recently. What with digging my new swimming pool and all. Should we give him a vacation?

    When someone is as devoted as Michael to serving, their work IS their vacation.

    Re: What would you take?

    My god man! I hadn't though of it that way!

    I'll bet you that $1000 bonus I was going to offer him would have been a big insult to him! The real way to honor a servant of his caliber is to give more work!

    Yippee!

    Re: What would you take?

    My friend, the question is not "could" he. The correct question is "how much pleasure would it bring Michael if you were allow him to push your car from DC to Maine?"

    Surely, a man of his caliber would take much pleasure from such a venture.

    I don't know. It depends on how big of a swimming pool Rick needs.

    You're not taking into consideration the cropping factor of your camera body. Since you're shooting with a 20D, you have a 1.6 crop already, which turns your 70-200mm into a 112-320. Adding a 1.4 TC on the end to that gives you a 157-448mm if I did my math right.

    Hmm....why haven't I run out to buy one of these yet??
