    Wonderful pages!

    So much fun looking back at the marvelous memories that have filled our lives . . . drop by drop.

    Fascinating to look at, even if there is nobody one knows. I love the ‘outline’ picture with number identifiers. In a lot of our old pictures, we have lost track of who’s who in the zoo.

      That’s good to hear.

      Yes, it is such a pity ;-(
      It takes a bit of time, but once printed on acid-free paper, it can just be slipped behind the photo.


I would ❤️ to hear from you.
