this was a power point presentation that I did for my mother's 90th birthday. I had to search my lofts to get the most beautiful photographs, and what were winners were the sepia tinted, some damaged, but exquisite photographs.

  • Hi Sabi, what a lot of work you did for your mum. I love the slideshow, but unfortunately from pcs 25 on the slides did not convert properly. Anyhow I love the old pcs. Now I see the first picture of your hansome father. You look like him and Mala and Deepa look like your mother.
    Very clever of you, I should not know how to do this ... Applause.
    Love ya Lizzie
