OK Cathy, you are exonerated!!
(*Tuition glass = glass you buy because you want to learn something, not because you actually want them...Alternatively, the junk glass you buy out of compulsion, just to teach you to be more choosy in the future.)
I have been there Cathy, I keep going back, and have cupboards full of the stuff.......mostly compulion driven with very little 'Tuition', and certainly not much choosiness!!
Thanks for the info about the Rose Bowl.....now, since I 'happened upon' the GMB, I really am getting some proper 'Tuition'!
Sorry to hear of the death of your camera.......bereavement is always hard, and my heart goes out to you. The trouble is, you will buy a far more sophisticated replacement, and then you will have to get familiar with a whole lot of new buttons and gadgets that it comes with, and you will end up hankering after your old first Box Brownie!!!!!
