Happy 44th

Yes, today is Wife and my 44th wedding anniversary. Shit, I think pushing 50 years of marriage makes one feel even older than turning 70. As befits who we are and our chosen lifestyle, we are celebrating by returning home by airplane from a visit to the #2 Family.

Best Of 2017

Wife has been going through a process of winnowing down her pictures from the year to come up with the few that will go into her 2017 slide show and the even fewer that may be of print up and frame quality (that will be probably no more than 5 out of thousands). She encouraged me to do the same. I've never done this before. I was interesting. There was a clear difference in the overall quality from the first trip of the year to the second trip clearly a result of the workshops we took. None of mine will be print quality as I take them in JPEG instead of raw which would capture much more information (and require much more adjustment with a higher level of editing than I am capable of).  But here are my selections for the slide show.
