The red 50 Apo arrived today it's a real beauty. 

 

So why did i do a crazy thing like that? 

 

I have recovered successfully from a year with cancer. I´ve got a pretty big indemnity for late diagnosis. I was 4 times at hospital before they gave me the right diagnose.

 

So i wanted to buy something which i use a lot (and love) to remind med to always enjoy what i got, never postpone anything, take care of all your beloved ones, etc. It's so easy to forget what is important in life.

 

And i love the looks :-)

Hakan,

looks like a very good reminder. We often forget about the really important things (health, family, friends, nature) in life as long as everything is going on without problems.

Glad you are doing fine.

Congratulations Hakan, the best reason to celebrate and some great lessons that everyone could live by, it really is too easy to forget all that.
