A Memory Scan

You probably wonder where I have been for the past few weeks and what I have been doing. Answer:  Scanning hundreds of photographs from albums.

If you have been following the recent media coverage of the reported sightings of unidentified flying objects (UFOs), you are probably puzzled by how widespread the reports are.  There were even reported sightings in Oshawa, Ontario and Bedford, Nova Scotia!

A Visit to my Hometown

Back Home Again

It had been a long flight from Vancouver – almost six hours –… Continue reading A Visit to my Hometown
