They're from the mid 1940's to the '60's. Mainly vacation pics of trips to Yosemite and other CA national parks. I need to get a scanner first to see which ones I want to print. I looked at them through a slide viewer and am surprised at the great color and quality.
Does your printer scan at all? Today's printers are 3 in 1. Print, copy and scan. And they have come way down in price.

That should read copy, scan and fax. It is obvious that they print. The 3 in 1 are now less than $100. I have the HP and I use it for everything. One time I scanned a cookbook in.

Hi, gang! Ready or not, Phase One of my garage/yard/porch sale (I have a LOT of stuff... ) is happening tomorrow and Friday. Trying something different by having an evening sale (5-8), followed on Friday by a 10-4 sale. As long as the weather holds out, I'll probably reprise those hours next week, too. Please do whatever your thing is, whether prayers, good thoughts, or witchcraft, and send positive vibes for that good weather, please. I have way more stuff than I have horizontal surfaces. I still have boxes of stuff that haven't even been priced. Where did all this stuff COME from???

For your perusal, a few pics from the basement before I started any of the pricing and organizing, and a photo of the garage before the set-up began. IF I remember tomorrow, I'll post of photo of the garage just as the garage goes up. With any luck, I'll get to do this all over again in a week.

Well hi there, CG! Wow...what a difference, you have really done a lot. Good to see you again, and I'm sending good vibes for a great sale! I'd sure go if I could.

+1 and I'm sending good vibes too - for good garage sale weather and a good sale.

What do you want for that white wicker table? It will go perfectly with my front porch furniture! Good luck with the sale!

Holy crap, Cheryl, that is a huge job! Is there somewhere you could take them where they could do it for you?
