burying (part of) the past

But first, a very Happy and Prosperous 2016 to you, a most treasured reader.  (Apologies in advance if this last post of 2015 may be a tad boring.)

After reading the book noted in this blog several weeks ago called Tidying Up, by Marie Kondo, I figure it’s high time to dispose of old digital photos.  The hard copy versions have already been history.  Now, the hard drives need space, hence it’s time for old photos to bite the dust.  One way to bury them is posting them here.  Years from now who knows where they’ll be, but at least they’ll no longer be in my digital library.
