I Said I Would

The last time I was here I said I would put something together and post some pictures in a few days. I guess in my world 17 or 18 is a few.
I could tell you I’ve been busy or I’ve been sick or any number of other excuses. I really have been sick but Doc thinks he can get my BP back down to an acceptable level and tonight the ring finger on my left hand is throbbing like a son of a gun, darn crowbar. Fact is I just haven’t been in a writing mood and I just finished screwing with the pictures a couple days ago.
I will bore you with a few stats before we see the pics. I used four different cameras and snapped a shutter on the north side of 1700 times. I don’t need to tell you a lot of them were garbage; however the first scrub left me with 895 keepers. I tightened the limits and still wound up with over 200 suitable for “show and tell”.
I think WordPress (my blog host) would pull the plug if I tried to share all of them with you so I scrubbed again. I think I have just over seventy to share.
I have them in kind of a sequence to correspond with our trip. I will try to put a little info with each pic.

Good Night and God Bless.
