Since I am a product of the past century I have been known to complain about living in this 21st century. Sometimes I must admit that some things are better in this century.
In the summer of 1985 Rosemary, our two daughters Alexandra and Hilary and I went on a trip to Hawaii.
I remember that I spent a whole day trying to find a 100% cotton Aloha shirt that was not made of rayon. I did find one (seen in the b+w photograph here) at a Liberty Store.
Because I had been hired to take photographs for a travel magazine, I never printed any of the family shots. Worse still because Rosemary was always telling me to photograph our daughters there are many of them and few of Rosemary. And of course who shaves the barber? There are evewn fewer of me.
Thanks to an old Kodak light box, and Agfa loupe and my very
good Epson Perfection V700 Photo scanner these pictures will see the light of
day in my blog. And, yes, I will admit some stuff is better in this century.

I have opened a family file in my computer (that I will eventually transfer to an external hard drive) and I have placed all these pictures you see here and many more. Who knows if my family might not want to have a look at them in some future when I am gone.
