    I’ve been trying to get in touch with Mr. Hama for about a month now to check on the status of a camera repair on a Yashica YK. But I have been unable to connect with him via email or phone. I’m concerned not only for my order but for Mr. Hama as well. Has anyone here been in contact with him in the last couple of weeks, or anyone know why he may be incommunicado? He’s always been very reachable in the past. I hope all is ok with him.

    It's not out of character for him to be non-responsive for periods. But yeah, he's getting long in the tooth too. Wish I had known about this last week; I was just in his neighborhood on a business trip. Could've done a drive by...

    I'll be only a few miles from his house tomorrow though I'm not entirely comfortable dropping by unnanounced.

    I seem to remember reading in another forum somewhere that he sometimes takes a holiday overseas for some time. If I can't reach him by mail or phone after the holidays, I may drive down that way myself - I'm 3 hours from Atlanta. I've googled to see if there may be some news on the internet about him but nothing comes up. Regardless of what has happened, he has my Yashica YK and $100 of my dollars, so I'd at least like to recover the repaired camera, or the camera and cash if unrepaired, if he's left the business or is otherwise indisposed.
