HAPPY 73RD BIRTHDAY ERROL!!!!!
i can think of no better way to celebrate your memory than by hosting a potluck slideshow. a virtual, global potluck slideshow. so, if you’ve received an invitation, grab a cold one or two or ten & a snack (potluck only, sorry!), pull up your bootstraps & make yourself comfortable. enjoy clicking thru the slideshows.
i don’t know if you had the privilege, but dad often gave gifts to others on his birthday. (it was a birthday party, after all). it was good stuff like pre-scratched lottery tickets and fancy imported jewelry from taiwan.
so, i consider this his birthday gift to you. he was the man behind the camera, but all these photographs are your history, your past, your legacy. the archives. it was time to bring them out of the closet & share them. i hope this makes you smile. i could only find so many of you, so you are welcome to share this website with interested or interesting parties!!
99% of these images are from slides (and 75% of statistics are made up on the spot). any of the slides that are presented here in black & white are such because time has given them a lovely tint of fuschia (yes, fuschia). when converted to b&w, they become quite viewable again.
so, there are 3 tabs at the top of the page- old timey photos (from prints), archive favorites, and the great southwest (both sets of slides). if you click on the first image on a page, you will see right & left arrows that allow you to view as a ‘slideshow’. i wish we could watch them all together on a screen, they are so much better in person!!!
if this didn’t satisfy your nostalgia, here are links to ‘flickr’ pages with 1000’s more (really!!). river trips, other adventures & ramblings, great scenery and more east fork memories. no password needed. this website couldn’t handle them all.

Happy Birthday Errol! Thanks to everyone for putting this party together. The photos brought back so many great memories. But I still like some of the photos Errol took of folks misbehaving the best – like puking by the camp fire or off the front porch.
All the best.
