Found a shoebox with a bunch of old photographs in it. The photographs were from a variety of time periods, from baby pictures, to school pictures, and multiple birthdays and Christmases. I thought i would be a good idea to scan all of these and preserve them as digital copies. Some of the photos have aged badly, turning dark red and losing all the blues and greens that were in the original color photos. This is going to be a long term project. The scanner is slow and so am I.
I was chatting with someone online and he wanted me to write down his phone number so I could call him later and follow up. Its funny – he is old school and I guess that I am, too. He said, “Get a pencil to write this down” and I didn’t flinch – I started hunting for a pencil. What a dummy! All I had to do was type the number into Notepad and I didn’t need a pencil. LOL
