Leaving Present

hi
Today i left my place of work i have been going to for the last 38years as a rose grower, and the guys and gals and boss there had a whip round and treated me to a Canon BG-E3 battery grip and a Canon EF-S 17-85mm 4-5.6 IS USM lens, hows about that then.
My new place of work is at the garden centre, up the same drive i have travelled for the last 38 years, working for the same family but this time i turn left at the top of the drive, instead of turning right.

What no 17-40mm f4 L?

I'd take it back immediately!

Seriously though, sounds like they'll be really sad to see you go

Fantastic Boon, they must have really thought a lot of you.

A sad day though, after being there so long

Well done! The 17-85 EF-S is a cracker, a really useful lens.

38 years!

Guess it might be time for a change

I only managed 25 in one stretch - but I was tied to that job.

So are you still full time or more leisured now? And what does a rose grower do anyway? production or developing the next prize winner..or ?

Old memories and new adventures

Grip is brilliant, and then a lens, shouldnt put things in a material perspective but it definately sounds like you'll be missed as much as you'll miss them.

Good Luck in the new role

(and dont forget its left LLLEEEEFFFTTTT!!!!!!!)
