At the end of the month I age another year! For some reason I never hear about 48th birthdays and I seem to jump the gun and say oh man.. I am 50 years old... LOL But not quite yet! I am 47 for 16 more days! YAYYYYYYYYYYYYY! ..

So what shall I do... Its me by my lonesome I believe .. no children have mentioned going to eat or such so I want to plan something fun to do alone.... HUMMMM.. any ideas?

What kind of trouble do ya think I could get into on the 30th! I think it is on the cusp of an American holiday right after,,,

Maybe go camp at the beach  and listen to the water!

LOL...NO MEN ALLOWED... I need to regroup... by Myself!

I just don't know what to do! After 28 years..I seem to be a lousy judge of Character when it comes to "Men"

I'd hate to ask anyone.... things and people are not as they appear to be these days!
Makes the asking difficult to say the least.. Me is a bit gun shy so  I'll pass!

You should thank the Lord you are not 50 yet and party on down. Is the film Mamma mia out in the US because if it is take a bunch of girls and go and see it. Not laughed so much for a very long time.

You are very kind, thank you.

Freelance. And I've been printing for a group of war photographers for the last couple of years, transferring their images onto glass.

I used that piece of glass to test the exposure for a larger piece.
See how it fades from dark to light? I exposed sections of the glass for progressively longer periods of time.  Pick the one that looks right, figure out how long it was exposed, and that is the correct exposure time for the final print.
