One more goofy old-time photo, and then I’ll let it go for a while. I have no idea who these guys are, they could be Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid for all I know. Now that I’ve said that, I kind of hope they are. I’m pretty sure they’re not, though. They’re just two guys in my family’s past named Hans and Carl or Fritz and John. That side of the family is littered with Carls and Johns and Fritzes.

I was up late last night – past ten o’clock! – scanning pages out of the Great Big Photo Album of People Who Are Related to Me But I Don’t Know Who They Are. I scan the whole page so the photos are preserved in their original context, then make a copy of each individual photo so I can add my own wandering thoughts, conjectures and pithy comments to them. Then I uploaded the individual photos to a flickr account I started toying with many moons ago. I was going to upload every single one of them until last night, when I was informed that I was approaching the free-account limit of ninety photos and would have to pay twenty-four ninety-five a year if I wanted to save more than ninety. I’ve got a lot of photos in a lot of albums and I’m wondering what the limit is on the upgraded account, and how much I’ll have to pay to upload them all. So now I’m looking for another way to post all these photos. I’m such a cheap bastard.

    No limits with an upgraded account as far as I know. I haven’t reached it yet at least.
