Dear Abby 6/23

Dear Abby: I regard my photograph albums as diaries. I don’t like to make copies of my pictures for others. My future mother-in-law looked through my albums and chose half a dozen that she would like me to copy for her. I had already given her several snapshots of her son and me, but she wants more.

Abby, I don’t understand why she doesn’t just take her own pictures of us! I view these pictures as personal items. I don’t think they are for others to own and display. Am I wrong? How can I refuse requests for copies of my pictures without offending someone?
