David laughed at me when I brought one of my several acid-free boxes filled with slides and negatives from the big armoire in my guest bedroom. “More slides?” he questioned. Well, sort of. These are the slides I didn’t know I had, although many of them also in photo albums. (Below, Central Park NYC)
I found more photos of relatives long gone, relatives I haven’t seen in a while, and far too many of me. By yesterday afternoon, I had decided I had posed for far too many photographs, over my lifetime.

As I scanned slides and photos yesterday, and figured out how to scan negatives this morning, I realized we did a heck of a lot of traveling together and apart.
For two decades, from the early 1980s until 2002, I traveled to NYC no less than 4 times per year. David and I traveled together to NYC and other places, like Ohio and Arkansas, where I gave talks regarding demographic issues. We also traveled all over the US and Canada for pleasure.
