Wj1 - I am sure it's your printer. If you have something like a Costco around you, they have a photo lab and a machine where you bring in the flashcard or whatever system you're using and you put it into a machine to choose your photos. Then the lab prints them up. Costco is only $.19 for 4x6 but it's a membership club. You can also try, they have some specials now (I think they give you some free prints).

Prayers and love to you and your family. Please keep me informed as to how things go.

I really do not intend to print the photos. Neither my husband nor I want to drag the pictures out of the disarray that photos seem to end up in a cabinet. I wanted to post an album on the internet or email the pictures, etc. You know how Kavey has hers set up at Ofoto, or Rocco, others have posted theirs too. I really just cannot keep all the names with the right people when I'm posting. Sorry.

Clematis- I will love you forever for that sweet comment. MMMMMMMaaa! That was a Dinah Shore kiss. (Please don't ask who Dinah Shore was.) 50's thing.

wj1- You haven't taken your new camera to Africa yet have you? You're in the practice stage? Well, thats where we are. In the course of a day I go from "I am so smart with my new camera" to "I'm gonna throw this darn thing away"
Hang in there and read Rocco's thread. I think he takes his in to get printed and for enlargements. This is one of the most frustrating things and you are so powerless over it. My husband reminded me how I was when we got our computer. BIG learning curve. This is every bit the same. I called Olympus today and after 30 minutes on hold finally got someone. He said to use automatic all the way and as I relax I find I know more than I thought about the modes and menus. I'm gonna take it, use it and I know it will work out. I'm going to look at the X drive, and a few others I read about on dpreview. I may just get another photo card but maybe the portable drive will work out. Liz

Thanks for all your well wishes. It's my dad who's been in the accident, on a golfing course. I am sure he will be fine, though will need some ops in coming weeks on the skull fractures and eye damage. As he is saying himself, it really could have been worse and there is no point getting upset, stressed or depressed about things that have a) already happened or b) are outside of one's control. Amazingly, he has always followed this philosophy for real too!

I am sure I will be popping into this site for some light relief reading and planning in between work and hospital visits.

If anyone has any contributions to make to my thread on ideas and planning for my South Africa trip, I'd be very grateful!

Thanks and hugs

Thanks for the update on your dad. Strong willed guy. Thats half of the battle. Keep us posted.

I wish I could help you on South Africa after all the help and support you've given to me and everyone else, so don't think I don't care about your trip. I just don't plan on ever getting out of Botwana or Namibia, but after you get back with your tales and poetry about the sites I'll probably be planning a visit. You know it seems for months all that was posted was about South Africa and now its mostly switched to East Africa. Of course since I'm going there, its exciting to read everyones posts now.
Love to you Kavey. Liz

I know what you mean - there are so few of us on this site (compared to the Europe board) that postings really reflect upcoming trips...
I'm just as happy to read your stuff about East Africa though - all inspirational stuff.
I might have to top my thread for more input from Traci and other SA experts!
Thanks again for good wishes.
News just now is that they _might_ let him have some time at home and just come in for all the check ups - no decisions yet on whether fixative surgery will be necessary but even if it is, it may not be necessary for him to stay in the hospital in the mean time.
Thanks again for your good wishes, its nice to see that communities like this can be so supportive.

An update for those who were kind enough to send good wishes.
The specialists have decided that they won't operate on the skull fractures - it's quite a major and risky operation because, although the fractures are on the orbital (eyebrow) ridge, they would have to cut the skull open across the top of the crown and flap that section open to fix the damaged area. So they are going with the lesser risk of allowing it to heal as it is, leaving the somewhat pushed in fragments where they are.
Regarding the damaged eye, he will need to have operations because there is some minor retinal detachment and the lens itself is severely damaged and will need replacing.
That said, he's very much better and back to his bossy but affectionate self, planning more trips, entertaining friends and pottering about.
Thanks again for the well wishes.
