Here's how this story goes. I ordered some photo prints from Walgreens. A couple of days later, they sent me a coupon for 50% off all photo gifts, including photo books. Photo books? Cool. As many of you know, my wife and I are able to attend a few Pens games each year, and we always take the camera along. I had been trying to come up with an idea for collecting all of our game photos from this past season to make something that we could enjoy for years to come. I was hoping for something more than just a bunch of 4x6 prints that get tucked away in a box somewhere and forgotten. This photo book thing sounded like it might have promise.

I started slowly, just going through the few thousand pictures that we had going back to the 2009 Cup Final, picking the ones that would be worth including. The problem that I faced was that the coupon was only good through Saturday. By the time Saturday rolled around, all I had managed to do was select the photos for the book. That in itself was quite an accomplishment, but I still had to assemble the book. I started doing that around 1:30pm, hoping that the coupon would be good up through midnight. Luckily it was. I ended up submitting my order at 11:59pm. I'm really happy with the result, and I'd like to share it with all of you. My preference would be to ship it around to each of you individually, but that may not be practical. So I did the next best thing I could think of - I took pictures of each page and posted them to my Picasa Web Albums.
