Re: Everyone must be....

Eeek! Don't throw them out! I think perhaps you underestimate how much your kids or grandkids will want to see them if they are available. I went through at least 2500-3000 slides. It was great. I felt like I'd had a tour of my dad's life- which was particularly interesting for the portions that he was a young man. I'd never even seen many of the pictures before. I've saved them all and actually have now shipped many, many boxes to my sister so that she can enjoy them.

to just pick the best and a few representative...the rest are going out.  I
don't think anyone will miss them...especially the ones of trips.

We are finally getting some cool weather but very, very dry.  Last fall was
spectacular but this one rather subdued with a little color here and there.
Since it has been so dry, I haven't even put out my usual winter flowers of
pansies and snapdragons.  I just don't want to nurse anything more through
this drought.

It's a chilly fall day here.  We were hoping for some much-needed
rain from Hurricane Noel - they promised us four to six inches - but
none fell.  Yesterday was really disagreeable - temperatures in the
forties and very windy and dark - but not a drop of rain fell.
Fall color has been very nice this year, and seems to be more
prolonged, with trees turning in some sequence instead of all
at one time.  There are still quite a  lot that are quite green, but
I haven't figured out just what makes some turn before the others.
We've only had one very light frost, which is late for that, but it has
been pretty chilly and windy for the past week. I've been occupied with trying to make some sense and order out
of half-a-century of photographs.  When the boys were here this
summer, my youngest took a couple of old albums that were falling apart and put them back together, and scanned them into
a removable disk.  Now he is urging us to put the rest of the many
boxes and piles in order while we can still identify them.  I'm halfway
ready to throw the whole batch out - I find it hard to imagine that my
grandchildren are going to even look at them. And I don't even want
to think about all the boxes and carousels of slides. At least it gave me
excuse for not doing garden work in the cold windy weather.
