That's it. I'm done with everything from 2017. It was a busy year! Now I'm doing posts on 2018 as things come up. I spent way too much time working on this blog last year. Seventy five posts, and many of them very long ones. I am NOT going to do as much this year.

If anyone was reading my recent posts, I adjusted the dates on them so that they all fit in 2017. Hopefully it won't cause confusion.

IMPORTANT REMINDER. To really see the photos, click on them to get the full size version. It's best to expand your web browser to full screen so you get the full benefit. The thumbnails that I put in the text of the posts does not do them justice.
