I see the usual quasi-valid negatives are coming in, which is fine.
By similar arguments, one would opt to keep the pony, rather than drive a car because: it's too complicated to steer, accelerate and brake... a car is bigger than a pony... a car won't fit in my stable stall... the buggy whip would become obsolete... a car costs too much... The last one is actually ~driving~ the decision; the others are just justifications. Then you eventually get to Loch Lomond and find cars and tents filling the lush pasture afore ye arrived.
O ye’ll tak’ the pony and I’ll tak’ the Chevy,
And I’ll be in Scotland afore ye.
But me and my true love will never meet again,
On the bonnie, bonnie banks o’ Loch Lomond Tom
Every time Tom brings up pics of these binos, I ask myself "I wonder if he could only keep one, would he keep the 36" dob or the 16" double barrel?"
