LOL !!!

maybe much cheaper !! 3 kids = 3 more leicas, lenses, and binoculars (!!) if
the members of this list are typical parents and strive to keep arguments
to the minimum ("my turn to use the 75 !!", "i've only had it for 10 minutes and 
the gopher hasn't re-appeared yet !!", "MOMMY ! jason won't let me use the 75...",
ad nauseum....).

i am now pretty intrigued about this:

how many of you who have kids 12 and under retain your serenity while your children
use your leica equipment (despite it's marvelous guarantee) ?? 

how many list members who have kids 12 and under, and who encourage their children to
explore photography, have purchased leica equipment for their children ??

this is an informal poll, and could yield interesting information for leica gmbh
(m6jr anyone ?).
