Found a bag of old photos in a box of my father’s stuff. Looks like my grandmother’s old photos. Some go back to the 1930s. Digitized them with my phone on a small tripod. Did over 200 in a few minutes. Here are some of the interesting ones.
Had a wooden shelf in our shower. It was made out of some sort of exotic wood and did last a decade or more. Decided to replace it when it started to fall apart. After much searching for proper wood for this sort of environment (is there any such thing?) I decided to go with a cedar 2×4 I had in my shed and some fiberglass resin. Used this stuff once when I was in high school to make a darkroom trough and it is pretty tough (and looks good too). Will send an update when I get it bolted to the shower wall.

From the BBC. Tourism is the world’s largest industry and functions as an export. I am more surprised that France is the world’s #1 tourist destination.
