RE: best catalogs for pictures

Good points Harold.  I do surf the net to most all the iris sites.   I have 
my iris wanted folder that is full of favorites.  My main 
problem with the internet is that I now live in a rural area and can only 
connect at 26k.  I left high speed and the city to live in the 
country  with a G3 that surfs like a snail.  I'm on a waiting list with my 
phone company for DSL, but until others in my area want it, 
they won't put in new lines.  I still browse quite a bit, and do lot's of 
"research" during the winter months.  Some sites do shut 
down, like suttons when they are redoing it, during that time the printed 
catalog gets lot's of attention, highlights and little stars 
on the rebloom chart.  :) Sure, they are a thing of the past, but that makes 
we want to get them even more.  I can't afford the old 
one's that get listed on ebay, I'd love to be able to collect them to help 
out with putting some names to my historics.  Here's a few 
pics of those.   Thanks 
everybody for all the suggestions and the update on Dave Niswonger.  Will
