Great story Dann !
My aunt showed me pictures from her 1972 study abroad trip to Europe, and fortunately she shot the majority on Kodachrome. There's nothing like seeing people in your family when they were your current age, and wondering where you'll be when you're they're age.
All told, it is the greatest way to view pictures from a roll of film. It becomes a "show", and where else are you going to see your own pictures that big, and in such vibrant beautiful colors?
