Beginning in August I will be reposting old photo posts from my original blog. Several posts from my old Blogger site have disappeared in the last few months. Some in their entirety, but more often just the photo file. I will be reposting my favorite old photo posts here, in their appropriate month, just to make sure they don’t get lost down the memory hole. So for the next year expect many more photo posts on this site, although you long time readers may have seen some of them before.
