We used our website for commercial advertising. But I slipped in a sub-domain or two for our own personal photos. I separated them out into this album now.

We went to Barbados soon after we met and had the time of our lives!
I was more than impressed with the Almond Beach Club, and I came away weighing considerably…
Beynac

Triumph Daytona 1200

Shadow on his back
Shadow has always been soppy and loves lying on his back while you tease him with a soft ball on a string or some such toy.
Stupid Shadow
Shadow enjoys nothing more than being stupid. Oops, wrong again, - it's food he likes more than anything else. Oh, and let's not forget the great cat sport of…
Charlie
Not the most intelligent of dogs, let alone Parson Russell Terriers, Charlie is nonetheless very cute and very photogenic.
Charlie in the woods
Charlie, doing his best to look intelligent. Or innocent.
Puppy Charlie
Charlie as a puppy would run and run and run and run. And then he would fall asleep wherever he was when he stopped.
