If I had looked at my keyboard I would have figured that out but it still needed an editing job. Thanks.

I do have a brand new wide-bed scanner, but I have boxes and boxes of "loose" Instamatic prints and a few Polaroids that I don't want to deal with the scanning part.  I bought the large frame scanner especially to scan pages of old photo scrapbooks and some larger photo prints.  

There are also several VHS tapes that I would like to have converted to digital videos (MP4, I think, is the standard format most of those companies use).  

 

BTW, my large flatbed scanner is an EPSON WF-7820.  I didn't have ANY printer before, so glad I finally got it for that too.  So far, so good, but haven't had it for very long.

I remember when Webshots went out of business.  I had a ton of photos on there too, My son helped me get them moved because I was such a technology challenged person and couldn't figure it out.  Now I use googlephotos so they are all out in some cloud somewhere.  I am so sorry you lost so many pictures--just heart breaking.

I have all my photos on my google account too and remember a few months ago getting some notification about how much of my "space" I have used and if you go over you have to pay.  I did go through a bunch of the photos and deleted a lot.   My dh did copy them all to a jump drive that is in my fire safe so I do have access to them if that "cloud" decides to rain.  My first few years of quilting, I took actual phots and kept in an album. I do enjoy flipping through a book rather than scrolling through the computer screen.

agreed.  I like having physical records too.  not sure why but I really do prefer paper, having something in my hands.  At 1st I was thinking I'd just rely on the blog, but I've changed my mind.  Same at work when reviewing something, I think I do a better job of catching errors when I can put a pencil on it - old school habit I'm guessing.

I agree with you 100% on physical records; in my case it is a collection of fat three ring binders. This kind of record is so easy to create and then easy to access when you need to jog your memory.

I keep a "table of contents" page on the cover of each of my notebooks so it was very easy to count up a total of quilts, wall hangings, etc. created since 1993. Not going to ever overtake you, Dee, but I have a respectable total of 129.

Wow!  You are productive.  And almost all of those quilts were made while you were working a full-time job.

avoiding finishing our taxes -

I've been avoiding that also.  Will get that done in the next week, I hope.  Since we now have to May 15th, I have more time to procrastinate.

Oh, no!  Do you not have any pictures anywhere?  That's awful.
