Yes, too long between visits. I wish we had another Spring trip to CA. That
was an especially fun trip. I am still processing some of the images from you
visit last Fall so I get to relive some of our jaunts.
Marnie is working on some trips later this summer--don't know if that will
materialize but might be on the other coast. My cousin David lives near
Seattle and he is supposed to take us on a hike in the Cascades. I really
want to find where that dog Gus hangs out with those tremendous vistas. My
cousin is the only one I know who has hiked the Annapurna trail (in winter) and
just got a lead article in Science.
(Not bragging by proxy, just like the cover--"sequencing going ape")
I am forwarding this to the CVO (Marnie) to see what can be done. You and Carol
are always welcome of course--"Hi" to Carol from us.

Yup, a +1/+2/+4 set from ages ago sure sounds like the common single
element lens sets. Perhaps that in part explains the many seriously soft
flower images he's posted over the years. :-)
He and Rick post the blurriest images. Rick is old and has admittedly
quite poor vision, so he gets a pass. Not so sure about Chris. He pretends
to good vision, but there are contra-indications, such as his comment about
Brian's rose today.
PS: Carol and I were just commenting on how we miss you guys. We had
just had a good visits from a Maine friend, then one of her sisters and
hubby, which reminded us of others we enjoy spending time with, but who live
far away*. It's a long time 'til Fall.
* Or perhaps we live far from you? Ask Albert.
