    Dropped Les off at the airport yesterday at 5:45AM. All is well. I have never meet a finer and more generous man. His booming voice and infectious laugh will be greatly missed in the house.

    Both Erna and I miss him a lot.

    Take care Les, we love ya.

    Well the saga is over and I'm home, I've developed 30 rolls of 120 film and still have 6 rolls to do as well as 20 rolls of 35mm, not to mention 200 d****l images. I've posted a few early efforts in the gallery. The whole event was well documented in a most entertaining way by Aggie, so I'm not going to bore you with my version, suffice to say that most of the facts were correct but with a few embelishments by the lady but let's just call it artists licence.

    What I would like to say is a big thanks to Aggie and Eric who organised their respective workshops and also thanks to the local apuggers in both areas who made my stay so memorable. Aggie, I appreciated your kindness and help in all that we did while I was in San Francisco. Eric, I miss the laugh and the dry quiet Canadian humour.

    There are also non apuggers to thank, mainly Jerry who provided the darkroom in San Francisco and Erna, Erics better half, who provided a level of friendship and caring that I appreciated at a time when I really needed it. I asked Eric not to mention this in his posts while I was there but I received the news that my sister had died on the second day of the workshop. Eric, Erna and all those who attended the Calgary workshop helped me through the next week until I could get home, in a way that I will never forget. Hopefully, we can do it all again in the future although I will not be falling into the Pacific Ocean again especially with expensive digital cameras in my hand.

    I have also got to the bottom of why I could not access apug from my computer, it was the McAfee Internet Security software on my computer, sorry Sean for all the trouble I've put you to in the past 2 months.

    Having just got back into apug I will be missing for the next 5 days for I am off to Ireland tomorrow to do some more workshops.

    Was also very sorry to hear about your loss (sent an email the other day). I hope everyone is doing ok.

    So glad you got to the bottom of the apug access issue! I didn't even think about a firewall causing the problem because I figured 'why would Les have a firewall'? Atleast if this happens to anyone else I'll know where to look. You can't post your new pics to the gallery fast enough, I may have to sit in the gallery and hit refresh over and over

    Welcome Back!
