Lost But Not Forgotten

Two layouts of my Uncle Elwood who I haven't seen in a very, very, very long time. The "Forever Lost" layout was created in June 2005.

My United Airlines Menu

I picked up this United Airlines menu at a yard sale last month. It cost me fifty cents. What attracted me to it was it represented a bygone era in MY lifetime.

The menu reminds me that airline travel use to be a wonderful experience. Now, just the thought of “flying” somewhere fills me with dread. It doesn’t matter which airline you choose the feelings are the same—you no longer feel valued as a customer. From being fleeced by the myriad of fees that frankly most people don’t understand to the yearly shrinkage of space in the airplane, customers just don’t matter.

I enjoy looking at this menu. I like the artwork displayed on the cover and the food selections. Everything about it says “Enjoy” the experience!

Sweinfert, Germany

I am still in my "heritage" mood, creating layouts from photos taken years, years, years, and years ago. Since my memory is getting to be so poor, these layouts serve a dual purpose of allowing me to write the "who, what, where, when."
My best friend, Cathy, just sent me her photo albums from the "Germany" period. I plan to scan and create an album from her photos combined with mine.
