The Sun Is The Same In A Relative Way

A vintage Anchor Hocking Early American Prescut glass relish dish, line number 700-series with pressed Star of David and fan pattern circa 1960–1978, on a table with full place settings in the officer's wardroom aboard the Treasury-class U.S. Coast Guard cutter USCGC Ingham WHEC-35 (1936).

Despite the fact that I was cognizant of it in advance, circumstances allowed me to forget anyway. Pre-occupied getting ready for and ultimately participating in my mother's birthday camping weekend in and around Fort De Soto County Park in Pinellas County, Florida, I ultimately neglected to acknowledge in time a personally-relevant vicennial on the same date, Sunday, 26 September 2021.

As unbelievable as it is to me, that date marked the twentieth anniversary of Mount Sutro.

The rate at which I develop and process photographs, research and write articles, and ultimately publish them all here may be intermittent, but with a library of over 88,300 photographs (1.38 terabytes) many of which are as yet unpublished, a full supply of content remains to keep me busy for another few decades. In the meantime, I continue to travel and capture additional images, building memories and article material for the future.

By the way, if you happen to wonder what a Coast Guard cutter's wardroom has to do with this website's anniversary, the answer is, well, nothing. However, I can offer that the glass relish dish photographed aboard USCGC Ingham is seemingly identical to one owned by my mother and that I recall from the dinner table in her home.

The voyage continues… thank you for coming along.
