Thanks Steve. The fellow in #3 was trailing along behind his lady who had dashed ahead to their car. I had noticed them going into the store without umbrellas and waited for them to emerge, hoping they would walk pass my front windshield. I didn't want too much rain on the window, so I had the wipers going until I saw them come out, then turned them off. And, tbtg, they passed in front she, dashing, he, strolling unhurriedly with something held casually in his hand. Click. And he was gone. It was a productive way to wait for my lady. Matt


OOOOps, that should be the fellow in #2, not #3. I have always been poor with numbers. Matt
