Happy 60th

Wednesday, May 17th, 2017

Here are Shannon, Paul, Katy, and me visiting the San Diego Wild Animal Park sometime in the last half of the 1980s. We looked so young! Come to think of it, we were young! Great Art courtesy of some film camera, taken by some person, digitized by the exclusive Morrowlife scanner, and part of my famous Shannon series.

Shannon’s picture is here to honor her on what would have been her sixtieth birthday, which would have followed her 37th Mother’s Day by just a few days. I miss her. I know our children do too, along with many others.

I’ve been going through a project to digitize all my old slides and photos. It’s daunting. There are so many, and the new scanner I bought ([amazon text=this one&asin=B008ZDCZ8Y], to be specific) only handles four slides at a time. I’ve scanned well over a hundred slides so far, but it takes a long time. Still, I’ll get there eventually if my enthusiasm doesn’t wane.

It shows no signs of waning so far – these old images are precious. Katy’s and Paul’s childhoods were documented on film, while we had digital cameras for most of Andy and Mark’s lives. So I’m reliving a lot of great stuff.

I’ve been helping my friend Michael replace the transmission on his 1969 MGB. It’s been a whole lot of work and has taken quite a bit longer than he predicted it would, but it’s been great fun. I love working on other people’s cars!

We’re leaving for Joanne’s son Desi’s wedding tomorrow. Everybody’s pretty excited about it. Including me.

Speaking of Joanne, she’s loving her new job. I’m truly happy for her.

And that’s it for today. I’ll leave my Loyal Readers with this exciting Morrowlife Employment Agency job opportunity: vampire ant!

See you soon.
