Well, I've decided to post a few photos of myself (and family members perhaps). This photos was taken when I was about ten years old, about the time I started getting into photography, stamp collecting and other stuff. That is me on the far left, my mother beside me, her sister (aunt), my aunt's sister-in-law (cousin's wife) and my brother. All have passed on except my cousin's wife, and myself of course! I believe it was my cousin that took this photo. He had scanned a few photos and sent me them since it included myself and other family members. I'll have more as soon as I can scan what I have currently and that will come when I get my stuff out of storage.
Getting everything out and into my apartment will be happening very soon, December 20th to be exact. Using a new credit card and some cash in the form of a cheque/money order, I was able to pay the amount owing to allow for this development. After everything is here, I plan to sort through everything and have an auctioneer sell what I nolonger need (I have far too much as it is). The proceeds from the sale will go towards paying off the credit card. The auction will happen in January; that is the plan anyway!
So, I have heard from Brad in a manner of speaking (the email came from his email account, so I must assume it is him), so I hope he is well and able to post very soon. There are not a lot of details I can give you right now. I'll leave that up to Brad, so that you can hear of his adventures firsthand! Suffice to say, I still think of him as a friend and have nothing but love and respect for him! It's important for me to say that, as much for those of you who are reading this blog as well as Brad. Love each other and treat each other with kindness and respect. Everything in the world goes much better with this in mind!
Meantime, I am cleaning up my computer files to make for storage space plus allow the computer to run better and more smoothly. Its overcast and rainy anyway, and now its dark. Darkness comes so early this time of year, here at any rate since we're north of the 49th parallel. I hope you're all having a great weekend and doing what you love best! - Volker
