Remembering a friend's photo - taken by a couple of Chinese girls near the Duomo in Florence with a Polaroid Instant Camera. It was very small (nowadays a $90 camera takes business-card-sized photos) but what a nice gift from total strangers - and my friends thought they just wanted my friends to take a photo of them (the Chinese girls). The really nice aspect of these cameras is that the photo can be given away immediately as a present and the receivers can enjoy the excitement of watching it develop.

Interesting that this type of technology hasn't gotten cheaper over time: a Polaroid One600 Classic Instant Camera, "Just like your original Polaroid camera" costs over $200 nowadays and the film costs over $1 a photo! --

-- but it cost only $19.95 in 1965 ! :o

No Jimmy here. I see a very nice looking lady with long brown locks and a warm smile. :)

I see you Julie! Bella bella! :)

I've noticed, though, that which picture shows up depends on what setting you have the board on. If you have the board set on lz_bias, then your avatar photo will appear with your posts. But if it's on IP.Board Mobile then instead of your avatar photo appearing, it will be your personal profile photo.

So check to see what setting you have the board set on. Hope this helps.

Someone reached out to me today, apologized for their past actions and vowed to do better in the future. That took a lot of courage and character. It really meant a lot to me and I hope I can do something similar if the occasion arises.

Today I am going to a baby shower for one of my girls from girl scout days. She will be bringing a new baby boy into the world soon.

Kinda brings home the fact that I am getting older than I want to be physically, but still feeling young in my mind.

The circle of life just keeps marching on through time.
