Hi All!


I know this may not be customary, but I consider you guys and gals to be friends.  I didn't want to post this in a public area, so I am posting it here.  I am just about to begin my pilgrimage back to the states.  My camera will be packed away and probably not used till sometime in August; if then.  We have a very busy schedule, and I spend a lot of time at a camp with no internet services.  Due to this, I will probably not be able to comment on posts, and my log-ins my be sporadic.  As of now, everything is positive, and I hope and pray it stays that way.  I appreciate this forum a lot, and I love looking at what's being posted.  If I'm not around, you folks will be in my thoughts, and I'll, hopefully, be popping in once in a while.  Until then - thanks!

Johnny...have a safe trip and check in when possible.  Sounds like a heckuvan' adventure!


While my absence from here has been nil, new images are at a stand still.  I arrived in Winnipeg about 2 weeks ago with my camera available, but no time to even pick it up.  Boxes arrived from the states and it's been a cardboard jungle here and trying to get things in place has been a real joy.
