Cleaned up the old photo album

I started this site on my old Earthlink account, then moved it to, then eventually here, When I started out I created a photo album (which seems to cover the first six-eight months of Miss Frisket's reign) using Thumbsplus. Thumbsplus is a nice photo management tool, whose features I probably use only 10% of. One feature I used was to create photo album web pages. Unfortunately it appears that each time I updated the "album", it created new thumbnails with new names and may or may not have updated the URLs in each page.

So while the thumbnails have been working on the Photo Album, most of the images were broken once you clicked on them.

I've cleaned it up and added some code to pop the image up in the frame using a toolkit called Lightbox.

Separately, I also created a flickr photo set of Frisket's attack on a roll of paper towels from her wild and crazy youth, here: The Paper Towel Disaster.
