Okay here's the thing...
1. See that black thing at the bottom of that icy stream down there? yes...that'd be my lens hood!
2. See that guy bent over there? Yes the one in the "harley" shirt...that'd be my super extra special hunny knee deep in said icy stream retrieving my submerged lens hood.
3. There's the evidence of a couple of icy, cold wet legs and jeans AND shoes! He drove 2 hours home like that!
...what a guy! :highfive:

LOL. I love how you're just clicking away on the camera while he's in icy water! :p

Harley riders never were too bright :rolleyes: http://www.mtbdirt.com.au/home/smf/Smileys/classic/hihi.gif I'd have grabbed a long branch and fished it out ;)

Did you mention to him it was worth about US$10 at the very most :D

... and there's snow in the edge of the third shot just to show that it's cold! I think I might head off to the beach just to warm up :D

SHHHHHHHHH! Don't tell him that! We're both too cheap anyhow!
I was hoping he'd McGuyver something up for me to get it (once he got my house keys out of the bottom of an elevator shaft with a tape measure, electricians tape and a bent piece of wire) but instead he just got right in and got that hood for me...lol.
He's not laughing about the Harley riders comment ;) (he's got 3 of them!)MA....lol

Only an hour away from Detroit, and home of the Jeep, Toledo has large population of Harley owners. Many of them love the muscle in their cars and their bikes are supposed to sound the same way. I will say, with most of them working on GM, Ford, or Chrysler assembly lines, they could probably have used their brains a little more, but the companies put food on the table of many families and provided excellent financial security. However, the guys that ride these bikes, usually know how to fight because they spend a LOT of time in the bars. I can't count on two hands how many of them have protection just inside their waste line. Generally they are nice guys though, and always willing to help...haha
Being an avid Irwin fan myself, those Aussie's are a different breed as well. Scrappy little fella's if I dont mind.
If I pay for everyones plane ticket, we can all go to the show! :D

Really though, that is pretty funny that he just stepped into the water to get it for you. Almost makes me think you told him to do it just so you could get his picture while he was in the water. Then make fun of him for it......sounds to me like your the real instigator here. :eek::highfive:

I swear I had no idea...really JJ! But it was fun taking shots of him...he's still shivering on the couch here wrapped in a blanket...:D Gosh, hope my $10 hoodcover didn't give him pneumonia!
Btw, he's got a back belt X2 in karate...lol....:highfive: and he really is one of those nice guys as well.

I had to give you some sort of credit for all of this. After all, I highly doubt he was the one using the camera when the lens hood fell in the water....:party:


At least its a Pentax

I'll take back my comment now I know he saved your keys without squeezing down the shaft himself ;)
