The pictures are beautiful and I hadn't seen them before. I sent pointers to
everyone in my family. We're from that part of Russia. To see our roots in
color like that, what a trip. One of the cops looks like my hippie uncle who
everyone always told to get a haircut. He looked like our ancestors,
apparently. Dave
