Vacation Day 25 – I think the correct order was a Barbecue then some crafting We’ve already met Bob and Ann, Roy and Jan are also life-long friends.

Beauty and the (out of focus) beast (365:106) – I had a self portrait planned for today. It involved putting the camera on the tripod, gathering the family, and taking a picture with Dash and Leslie.

Hadham Hall School, October 1968 – Today (March 11, 2021), spurred on by an email I recently received from another ‘old boy,’ I did a quick stitching job on the pictures.

As the image is low res, and time is short, that was the extent of my repairs to the photograph.
