While Odel was away, I tackled my "new technology" list, spending many hours researching the purchase of a new digital camera to replace the Olympus I have had for a couple of years. After owning three Olympus cameras, I finally switched to a Canon. They have a great reputation, but switching brands means a learning curve.

The other technology I wanted to master was the "scanner" aspect of our computer printer - which turned out to be a snap.

For the first time ever, I had something I wanted to scan, this photo of Odel in his flight suit ready to climb into his fighter plane. The photo must be around 40 years old, and is quite faded. Before it is damaged further, I wanted to make a digital copy. What a hottie!


  1. What a great picture!

  2. odel: that's a great picture. hope you'll are well. sounds like it. harry

  3. Laurie,
    I absolutely love my Canon digital, it can see better than I do some times! :-) I first had the 35mm and as soon as the digitals came out grabbed one. I have never regretted it! Great photo of Odel to preserve!
