Welcome to Our Web Page
This is going to be the story of our life together. It started in Cairo, Egypt and after winding through many areas, it is settling in Louisiana. It has been an interesting life and is far from over. We will tell you about our travels, our hobbies and activities and other different stops along the way. All of these things will be covered on the web pages that are linked to the left column.
Since one hobby-photography-has been part of our lives for so long, there will be many photos displayed. Some will be a series of pictures on one theme. Some will be thumbnail photos linked to larger ones and some will just be scattered around. If the photo is fairly small, click on it.
We do hope that if you happen to visit us here, you will find it interesting and enjoyable.
