Goodbye for now

Well, first of all I'd like to apologize for our absence. Things have been pretty hectic since our last post. Second of all, I'd like to dedicate this post to my grandfather, Stewart Campbell. Almost four weeks ago, on August 4th, he passed away after a heroic battle with multiple myeloma. My grandfather, who we lovingly called 'Grumps' was a pretty amazing man. Among his many talents, duck hunting and blue marlin fishing were his favorite. In preparation for the memorial service, I searched through some old photographs for the purpose of making a slide show. While going through hundreds and hundreds of photographs, I discovered a man with a heart for adventure.

Initially this post was titled "Goodbye for now Photoshop Sage," as I was going to end the summer postings with a tribute to my created Photoshop Sage, however  as I contemplated "Goodbye for Now," it seems a fitting title to pay tribute to the man who taught me so much. I feel so very blessed to have been the granddaugher of such a great man. So, goodbye for now, Grumps...this not goodbye forever.
