    I was rearranging some bookshelves to make room for a few new books when it happened. I was in for a surprise and did not quite know it. There behind some books on my bookshelf was an old family photo album I had not seen in years.
    When I say old, I mean these were pictures taken when cameras were really cameras with film in them. Nobody knows what those cameras were like today.
