You can capture many special moments with photography. It has always been something that I like to do. Right now, the picture shows this: I’m cancer free and finally getting back to making a graduation scrapbook for one of my five grandchildren. Francis Dowd ready to capture some photos.Francis Dowd ready to capture some photos.

I am 78 years old and have owned horses for 68 of those years. I am a cowboy through and through. My father gave me my first pony when I was just five years old and my first horse when I was 10. I have had hundreds of horses since. I also used to train the ponies down at the race track.

    I was somewhat disappointed in the post surgery wound care experience. I had MOHS surgery on my face, and there was no recommendation for a follow up visit to monitor the surgical site. I would have expected at least one follow up visit to verify that it was healing well. I called, and sent pictures, and was advised that it appeared to be normal, but I have to say, I am still uneasy.
