"New" versus "Old"

Dear Friends,
I took just a few photos in downtown Iraklion (Heraklion) the other day. They are probably in stark contrast to what you remember. I'm new to this - so bear with me. Ha. Ha. Remember, I was not raised in the computer age! When my son was a little boy, he once asked me, "Dad, what did you used to do for fun in the "olden" days when you were a little boy?" "Well, son," I replied, "after dinner we used to sit around the fire in the cave and draw pictures on the wall". That should illustrate just how far removed I am from the computer age...like I said, bear with me! Ha. Ha.









Top Left: Errik Grimm, son of the late Helmut Grimm, in front of his father's jewelry and gift shop at Lions Square. Top right: A little street girl plays her accordian in Lions Square for money.

I will try to post additional photos later. Right now, my battery tells me that I had better close or else lose what I am working on. So, until later...

...Take care, stay well, and let me hear from you.

Your Friend and Fellow "Silent Warrior",

Bob (Midget) Armistead

It appears to me that you are doing very well with everything!!
There seems to be no hurdle that you cannot overcome. I read your blog each time you post one. Very interesting.
