Actually that could be the next shoot-in.
Either post your oldest photo or first photo you took (that's still
availible) either
with a film or digital camera.

I shall try to remember to keep a space "fore-'n'-aft" of a URL in the future...;-)

I use short lines with hard returns for a reason. I like my reader since
its text size is reasonable for easy reading (the samples supplied of other
reader[s] have text that is too small [and I prefer B&W to color and ">>"s
to vertical lines for showing "age"...;-]), and I dislike having my text lines
broken at odd locations (making for odd-length bits) or not at all...
So, there! 8^) I also retain copies of what I write for archiving on my
web site, and my method provides "clean", consistent copies.

'Pends on preferences.....;-)
