Now that was a perfect landing, even on a green traffic light!

I love geography. Where is it that you live?

And welcome, even if I am a little bit late.

I spent most of the heart of the day at my sister and BIL's. I took over the photos I took of her 80th birthday party and loaded them onto her computer. Then we went over each of the 63 photos, enhancing, cropping, etc. Then uploading to Costo's photo center for printing. Then had to help them with some issues with printing photos and some misc. other stuff. It's frightening when I'm the techie in the room. At least she fed me lunch.

I am amazed at how inexpensive it is to get quality prints. Costco charges 17 for a 4x6, 39 for a 5x7 and $1.50 for an 8x10!

Glad you got some good pics of your sis's bday party, Andy. My daughter was also telling me about Costco's great prices on prints. Good quality too, I hear.

I have a huge job ahead of me, a couple of months ago my aunt and uncle (in their 80's) brought me 5 metal boxes with almost 2000 carefully stored and catalogued slides. They're from the mid 1940's to the '60's. Mainly vacation pics of trips to Yosemite and other CA national parks. I need to get a scanner first to see which ones I want to print. I looked at them through a slide viewer and am surprised at the great color and quality.
