Marjorie in Aquaba, Jordan206 viewsFor my 40th Birthday, Marjorie gave me a trip to Jordan -- on the Concorde (May 1989). We flew to Aqaba, on the Red Sea, and then took a bus to the carved city of Petra. This photo was taken by the pool of our hotel near Petra.

Marjorie in the City of Petra, Jordan - 1989126 viewsThe city of Petra grew rich from the spice trade. During the late Hellenistic and Imperial period local worthies engaged in what seems to us now a fantastic orgy of construction, carving Greco-Roman fašades from the living rock. Marjorie stands near a few stone pillars.

Petra, Jordan -- Sand For Sale138 viewsWhen I was playing around with this photo using Photoshop, I enlarged the lower left-hand corner where two gentlemen seem to be doing something. I had a good laugh when I could read the hand-lettered sign in the corner: "Petra Sand For Sale."

Marjorie and An Orange Juice113 viewsMarjorie giving me Stink Eye: "Put that camera down. Why are you always taking pictures of me?" I belive this was in Aqaba Airport, Jordan, in 1989. Marjorie gave me a trip to Jordan on the Concorde for my 40th Birthday. Our first stop was Aqaba, where they had a reception for us. Most passengers had a lot to drink, and there were a lot of poorly passengers on the hot bus in the later afternoon.

Marjorie Floats in the Dead Sea -- Jordan99 viewsWe took an "afternoon dip" in the Dead Sea, 1989. Because of the high salinity it was impossible to do much more than float. And the salt irritated every small cut you didn't even know you had. When we got out, the soap wouldn't lather to wash off all of the salt.
