    Thanks Frank …. much appreciated :) and, sadly, I won't have the fiscal leeway as in my previous place :( …….. unless, you can catch a plane and make it to Vancouver by 5:50pm on September 30th ;)

    Cheers,

    Thanks Learning …. much appreciated :) and I hope, like when I can to Gastown, I can entice some customers to, at least, drop by for a browse :)

    Cheers,

    Thanks Andrew …. much appreciated :) and I'm hoping so, as well, as they deal with a "more pro/commercial " crowd and so I'll have a fair bit of learning to do :eek:

    Cheers,

    Thanks Kenneth …. much appreciated :) and that's exactly what I'm hoping for :), although I have a lot of Nikon customers and they haven't stocked Nikon for a while :eek: but, apparently, they are talking :)

    Cheers,

    Thanks Sam …. much appreciated :) and I'll have a slightly longer trip to work, about 10 bus stops further than Gastown was and, only 1 further from when I was at D&R :) You are correct, I do know the staff, fairly, well and I think that will make the transition a bit easier :) As for the "junkies et al", I imagine it will be the "usual suspects", from when I worked at D&R, only we'll all just be 10 years older ;)

    Cheers,

    Jack

    Neither am I Jack but I have a friend who has recently bought a condo in Vancouver so I've the prospect of somewhere to stay so it would just be a question of flights. Cuba, New York and a few European cities are further up the pecking order at the moment though, so it will have to wait at least a year or so. :)

    I can't believe that it's nine years since you last changed job Jack.

    I hope you'll find a comfortable berth at the new place and that you will still find time to take some pictures.

    Best wishes

    Elsie and Chris

    :D and, trust me, like London, having mates with flats in Vancouver, is one way to safe on dosh :) and, speaking of fares/flights, one of Western Canada's airlines (WestJet) is starting to fly to/from Gatwick-Vancouver next May and here's a link to some decent (I think) fares for May, just an possible example :

    https://booking.westjet.com/InternetBooking/AirFareFamiliesFlexibleForward.do

    I sent the same link via PM on FB as you'll probably see it sooner ;)

    I'm really sad, I never got to Cuba/Havana before it opened up to America :( and New York is a place I'd like to go to and just wander about with a camera :) As for Europe, put me and me camera anywhere and I'll be happy :D

    Cheers and looking forward to seeing you …….. at some point when I'm still in my 60's :D

    Thanks Chris and Elsie :) and having 4 days of not working can only mean a few things, to me, taking a boatload more photos and/or taking in a lot more movies :eek: . I'm hoping that spending lots of time taking pics will be less expensive than hitting the movies :D

    Cheers,

    Jack
