    Alright I have some explaining to do.

    About a year ago we got a call that a lung was available for my wife. She had been on the list for 2years. As is the case there is a limited amount of time to get to the hospital before they will give it to the next person on the list. Everything went well and my wife is now better then she has been in the last 15 years. A few minor set backs but all is well.

    Needless to say this has preoccupied my day to day activities for a while. Now this would be enough excitement but we also have taken custody of our other 2 grandkids (6 and 7). The 1st one has lived with us for 12 years now and is planning on college next year. Wow have those costs gone up. Let's just say my daughter needs to grow up before it kills her. Did I mention we also sold and bought a house? I must admit it has been eventful.

    Sorry to say I let a few of my responsibilities lapse. I know I owe some of you pictures from a exchange for over a year now. Also David let me know who I need to send the traveling portfolio too. I will get it to them right away.

    Live is starting to become more routine now. I am going to build a new and improved darkroom this spring. Then get back out there with the kids and shoot some film.

    Again those of you that I owe prints too let me know I will get them to you.

    Glad to back
    Randy

    Welcome back, and don't forget to post some picture when you start on the new darkroom, it's always useful to see different darkroom setup. Good luck

    Also congratulations for the success with the lung transplantation

    Cheers
