My wife and I have made our own cards every year for 62 years. Originally we made 100 cards in my darkroom using Kodak 8" x 10" "Folding Weight" paper. When I switched to digital, I made color cards on my desktop Epson printer. Now I design the original and have Over Night Prints Company make us 250 5.5" x 8.5" color cards cheaper and faster than I can do here at home. The significance of the shack on our card is that it was an icon on the causeway which , as our kids said "we are almost there", meaning the beach was only several miles away. Super Storm Sandy wiped it out and it is gone forever.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas, Dave & Sharon!:)

It’s really great to get to know you both and get a little glimpse of your work through your posts. Love the shack, snd the story behind it is a warm reminder of our own vacations when our own kids were very young. Thanks for the memories too!:):):)

Over the years, this place has been a great destination and a rare community, and today it remains so. A nice end of year Christmas wish just brings that all home. Merry Christmas Dave!

Thanks all for the replies. I love this place. Everyone is a gentleman (or lady!). Your work and posts inspire me to get out and photograph. I will me 85 in February and sometimes need a little kick to get going!
