My Daddy turned 68 today. He was born on a military base in southern Texas along the Gulf, don't recall where exactly. Grandpa was in the Army.
Dad played football in high school with Mike Gottfried at Crestline High in Ohio. He joined the Navy and served on the USS Orion (AS18) from 61 to 65 after graduating from the GL Naval Training Center. He became a machinist and met my Mom at a kegger at Kent State in 68, the year after she graduated from high school. They got married

The film used is Ilford Delta 100 4x5 sheets. Three of the sheets were rated at EI50 and one that I included was rated at box speed. However, I concluded that I wanted the negative rated at 100 to be less dense as I had exposed important shadows at zone II 1/2. I had intended
DATELINE - Milton, Delaware. Wednesday, 10 FEB 2010
The wind is blowing like nuts. It's colder than forty Hades out there. I worked until 10:30 this morning and then bolted for the homestead. Enough of this infernal white stuff. This past weekend I tried to stay ahead of the snow so there would be less to lift when it was over. This weekend the wind is doing it for me.
