Letter to Santa

Dear Santa,

To save you some time, I made this list at a photo store online. Consider this list a suggestion as I have not been good all year but have been good most of it. You will note I have not asked for anything in several years, so I hope you will average the cost of these items with the no request years, and find it's in your budget, cause it's surely not in mine.

Finally, Santa, if you are having challenges with your budget this year, I urge you to read my recent post entitled MollyMath for how to evaluate the purchase price of a camera lens. Many people have advised it helped them, and can be applied to evaluating other purchases.

Your pal,


P.S. And let's keep that time I pulled my brother's hair so hard it raised a knot on his head just between us. After all, it only happened the once and it was a long time ago.


  1. I had to fully cross examined a gentleman at the gym about the 24-70mm. Beautiful pictures even in the gym. Keith and I are negotiating...

    AMEN. I want the same thing because have you seen my pictures? Meh. I'm hoping if Santa doesn't come through maybe Pioneer Woman's Random Integer Generator will take a cue from my moniker and hook an SSG up!

  3. I think Pioneer Woman's RNG has my number and knows what I said about it in my Sadistics, er Statistics class in college. Hence the letter to Santa.
