Jon and I were unsuccessful in attempting to scan 35mm slides into the computer with a couple small “scanners” I had bought some time ago. I had never been able to get them to work very well but thought maybe Jon could discover something that I had missed--no luck. So, we took the logical approach, set up the projector, used the kitchen wall for a screen, and Jon took pictures with his smart phone. We have had many of our old slides scanned at Sam’s and Walmart over the years, but we have many that were not. We would like to go back through and select some more but with the price up to 50cents/slide, we considered alternatives. This pictures is one of the statue of James Joyce in Dublin, Ireland that was taken a few years ago. Elaine and I took a Globus Tour to Ireland, Whales, Scotland and England. We had an excellent tour leader, bus, hotel accommodations and wonderful companions.
We have long since forgotten the cost , but will always remember the pleasure. This was of Elaine and some of the ladies with the statue of Molly McGuire and her cart from which she sold flowers. We were very fortunate to have done several overseas trips during the first years of retirement. We can now look back at the pictures, our narratives and relive the experience. As we enter the NEW YEAR we look forward to pleasures closer to home. We appreciate the boys and their families coming back to visit as often as possible but are so fortunate in having Carolyn & Ben, Julie & John, Sadie and Jack right here in Seward, with additional family nearby. It should be a Good Year.
