Page 3 of 3 - Photos From the 2017 Christmas Letter!
posted: December 31st, 2017
Go To Page:

This page shows ONLY photos which are included in the Annual Christmas Letter for 2017.  On this page are the photos/images from September, October, November and December.  The photos/images on this page are those from pages 20 - 29 of the Christmas Letter.  Let me repeat what I said on Pages 1 and 2 - there were so very few photos taken during the month of December that this set of photos is taking the place of the pages which would normally show the photos taken during the month of December. The final 15 photos here were taken during December.  Click on any thumbnail to begin.

What is the difference between these pages and the actual Christmas Letter?  These pages show only the photos from the Christmas Letter and VERY brief photo descriptions.  The Christmas Letter tells the actual stories behind the photos and more details about the where and why.  The primary reason for these pages is to allow people to see larger versions of the Christmas Letter photos.  The Christmas Letter is 29 pages in length this year.

  Here are links to separate web pages - all of them will open in a new window (or new tab). The first link shows some photos of our DVD Collection, an AVI Movie of our Home Theater System and 9 photos of our Sharp Aquos TV. The 2nd link shows our entire DVD collection in DVD Profiler (if you're asking yourself what might be good to rent for the weekend). The DVD's will be sorted by date purchased. You can click on the "Title" Column to sort that way if you desire. The 3rd link shows our entire DVD collection in php DVD Profiler, which is much more sophisticated than the plain vanilla DVD Profiler just above it. The 4th link takes you to a set of pages which show you the FRONT cover-art of our entire DVD collection.
