    Gettin' my kicks in year 66
    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.

    Re: how old are we?

    Someone here suggested I read "Travels with Epicurus" by Daniel Klein. I'm almost finished reading it. Excellent. Explores how to live a fulfilled life in old age and rejects the notion of the West's "forever young" culture. That's simplifying the book but well worth reading for young and old.

    I'll be 66 this summer. Will be retired for three years by then and can pursue life on my terms. But those terms grow more narrow. Was out shooting in the snow today with my 4x5 Zone VI camera and realized that navigation of the slippery stuff is different now. I have to be more careful.

    My friend Paul made a picture of me. I think he's going to title it, "Grizzled Codger."Click image for larger version.

    Well I do have to have surgery on my right hip. Seems that my 23 year old hip replacement is worn out. Not bad considering that I’m a carpenter and have used the hip pretty hard over the years. Hopefully other than the surgery things will be smooth sailing.

    Roger, wishing you smooth sailing after the surgery. Oh, to be only sixty again!

    All the best,

    Thanks Merg. Recovery has been a little rocky but is coming along. Just have to be patient as I don’t seem to heal as quickly as I use to. I am looking forward to being able to spend some time in the garage as I still need to build frames for your two prints.
