Well for those of you who have known me a few years, I have been working toward a promotion at work for about 6 years. Really pressing the past 3 years...got the call and finally have received a promotion effective December 4th :D

There is a really long story behind it I may post in the venting forum at some point, but it did not come easy nor in a way I would have liked for it to progress...but keeping with a cup half full mind set on it it does come with a slight increase in pay now and future pay increases that are quite nice...and in this economy I do still have a job.

Hopefully this will also mean that some additional time will be at hand for things like photography beyond what I have had recently.

Congratulations, Kurt. That has been a long time coming, and I know you must be relived to see it finally happen!

What new lens will you buy with the proceeds from your first quarterly bonus? :lol:
Congrats, I hope there isn't too much travel involved.

Thanks all

No new lenses Phil (though I do still covet the 200mm f/2)

Four kids in private school, one still in hockey, one in travel softball and travel volleyball...that is where all of my money goes.

Yes Mike, hopefully I will be a much more frequent visitor here again
