More 5th anniversary photos

Over the years we have included over 1,600 photos in our newsletters (now blog postings).  Our latest blog generated such attention that we decided to put together another set of photos from the last five years.
If any of these photos pique your interest (the snakes – yes, plural – Steve almost stepped on, Steve’s lost glasses, Steve’s attack by killer rattan, or Steve’s missing body, for example), we invite you to browse the website for previous stories – and photos of Marcia, too.
