These are photos from our most recent trip to Egypt and Israel, Dec. 2018-Jan. 2019. One of the women in my Egypt tour group confided to me (partly […]Read More WPC: Going Up & Looking Up

On a recent visit to Milwaukee, Dale and I visited Black Cat Alley, […]Read More WPC: Black Cat Alley – Transformation from Mundane to Beauty
When I got my new computer last spring, I was chagrined to find out that not only Photo Gallery wasn’t included, but that I could no longer download it!!
