Old Can be Beautiful

For all those who commented:  Dad did not get to come home today.  The doctors are meeting in the morning to discuss his case.  We expect him to come home tomorrow, but he didn’t feel really well when I left tonight.  Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers.  It will do him good and I love knowing I have so many good friends out there.

I received an excellent email yesterday.  Since I am still busy taking Mom to the hospital, I will beg off once more and try to amuse thrill satisfy show you some beautiful pics I was sent.  The specialness of these pics is that they are all nearly 100 years old!  Magnificent photographs taken totally without the use of the digital camera or anything of the recent times.  These are true gems by true photography masters.

These came in a general email.  I do not have any of the owners’ information.

What I can tell you is that I did not take them.  If any copyright infringement was made or if there are other legal problems, please know it was not my intent.  Let me know and I will take the pic(s) off this post in a reasonable time and manner.

Namaste,
