I also need to shoot some film. Are you building the XP machine to handle a scanner? Yes, I am. Someone at work gave me t...

Re: Missing friends

I am very sorry to hear of Claudia's passing. I got to know her and Lester in the days of Nelsonfoto, and we corresponded via e-mail for many years. The mails stopped coming when, I guess, they moved into the retirement home. I hope and pray that Lester is still in good health.

Way back when.....

Way back when God was a boy, we had friends who built their own "Rondavels" on their land near Pretoria, South Africa.
