Roxie at Christmas in 1969.
I'm spending this cool and very windy day going through slides that go back nearly 50 years. Or however long there have been slides. Word to the wise, people. Take pictures of people. In a few years you won't be able to identify the state that picture was taken in - that particular rock is now unidentifiable. Oh, and take close ups of people. That's what matters. Not far off pictures with Old Faithful gurgling in the background. I want to see a closeup of my grandpa's face on that hot summer trip in 1969. I can google up a damned geyser. I can't google up Pa.
I've got hundreds of slides here that I'm transferring to my pc with some gadget that the Bickster recommended I buy. It's a long process, with 90 percent of the slides being discarded without saving, as there is just no point.
