What's an 'Old Fogie'?

The tall guy said when he was growing up, whenever someone took a picture with their camera they had to use something called 'FLIMS'. He said these flims were very expensive and it's a good thing that he doesn't have to use flims to take my pictures or otherwise we would not be able to eat.

To that I say, thank goodness for not flims!!

Oh, he also said if you want to make your pictures look like 'Polaroids', you can find the software here: It is free. He said if you wanted to make your pictures look like 'Hemorrhoids', you were on your own.

    I'm thankful for digital photos! I sure did waste a lot of those flims.

  5. Mom is glad her picture was not posted here. Whew! She also said if she hadda use flim, I would have no bloggie.

  6. Thank goodness for the digital age! Hey, we still have a Polaroid, kicking around here somewhere! I always liked waiting and shaking the picture, before you peeled off the top!

  7. Polaroid Jack - Love the pawprint in the bottom right hand corner of the canyon scene - that's real authenticity.

  8. JAck,
    Thank goodness for digital!! My mom remembers the cameras with the little flashy cube on the top and it turned after the picture was taken~~ Wierd huh??


  9. Yuh, and according to my ancient momma sometimes they were even in black and white. Can you imagine?


  10. Jack boy is TG right in those days I rarely developed all the film I took. Which explains why I don't have many pictures of Toto the mighty mini Dachshund.....

    BUTT mom would like to say when she was learning to use the digital camera...she called it a pain in the butt for several months.

  11. Jack,

    Woofs and Licks,

  12. Some real old fogies live here, Jack. They even still have those flim cameras AND even a working Polaroid one. All the more gadgets for them to torture us with.

  13. Come to think of it, the Polaroids weren't even all that long ago!

    To think of all the money I spent on films . . .

  14. Thank you, Jack! We will check out the site!


  15. You crack me up Jack! I am grateful for no films too :)

  16. Beth here....I would go broke if I had to pay to have films developed!

  17. Oh you just haves no clue how greatful mum is furs digi. Her used to go all da way to another city to haves it developed.
    Her did haves a hard time going from film to digi but in da long run it has been a financial lifesaver. Thank goodness her not developing her stuffs now.


  18. Yep, digital is the way to go! Thanks for stopping by my blog, Jack! I hope we can be friends.

    Your pal, Pip

  19. Now WHY would anyone want their pictures to look like a Polaroid? They were always awful! My goal is to take good photos, not to take good photos and then make them look bad LOL

    (Now,a Polaroid picture of a hemorrhoid would be an improvement... )

  20. My grandpa used those cameras and things too!
    My mom is happy to have a digital one now!
    Kisses and hugs
