Thanks, ladies. Yes, this cruise was the best thing to happen to us in a long long time. We will have memories (mostly good a few not so much but are now kinda funny), to last our lifetimes. I am hoping to share a bit and pictures as soon as I am awake enough to do it!

I think my favourite part was travelling through Tracy Arm and seeing the glacier there. It was so beautiful and peaceful.

Right now I am enjoying a nice chai latte and going through pictures. I can't remember taking this many, but I am not complaining!

Glad you guys had a great time. A relaxing vacation makes a big difference in your attitude and generally how you feel.

I'm working on a client's 2008-2013 tax returns. She has professional income. She wasn't very good at organizing some of the info. Sigh.

There will be a big audience for your photos, LP.

Do you remember when we used to take the rolls of film to the drugstore and wait a week for them? And the horror of finding that some of them didn't even come out - - -

Lizzie, that is what prompted me to buy my first digital camera. I took probably 10 rolls of film at my brother's and then my cousin's weddings and NONE of the pictures turned out. Then I took a photography class in order to learn how to use it

Oh, man, GG. That's a real-life horror story with no fixes to be had. Sorry - even if it was a long time ago.

Thanks. Yes, it was in 2000. I love the digital darkroom!

Welcome back LP. Sounds like it was wonderful for the most part. At least you found the humor in the tough spots. Can't wait to see the pics - have fun vacationing all over again each time you look at them.

I've taken a lot of pictures in the past 60 years and I can say without hesitation that the best thing to happen to photography is the replacement of film with digital photography.

Gone are the days of buying and carrying your favorite films, sending or taking them for development then waiting for them to be developed/printed. Hesitating to take too many pictures for fear you wouldn't have enough film is gone forever. The cost of buying and developing the film could get prohibitive. If you wanted larger prints, that cost extra.

Now you don't have to be a darkroom genius with thousands of dollars in equipment to make a great photo.

Things have changed so much that most pictures aren't even taken with a dedicated camera anymore. Cell phones rule.

You have my sympathy. I have worked with so many professionals that are totally disorganized. They haven't got a clue. They depend on others to straighten out their life so they can screw it up again.
