Dawg, they're too precious to me to hand them over to a stranger, to be honest. Many of those slides are almost 70 years old now and they've been so well cared for. My mom when she was a young girl, vacation pics of family - long gone now - by lakes and rivers in California that were flowing with water back then and almost dried up now...my grandma and grandpa proudly standing in front of their brand new shiny 1947 Buick bought off the assembly line in Detroit. They're amazing!

I'll just buy a scanner - my oldest daughter down in Valencia wants me to come spend a couple days with her, stay up late, and git 'er done.

That's so cool! I understand why you don't want to let them go to anyone else. Precious memories!

Sadly for you, it also goes with my white wicker rocker. That table is usually on our porch, which is waiting for Himself to get around to painting.

Actually, everything I've priced is out. Some things will have to wait till tomorrow. AND I already made $29. Some guy saw us posting signs on Tuesday and followed us home! How can this NOT be a rousing success with that happening? Updates later...

Got run into by a lady on a mart cart at Walmart on purpose. I'm trying to tell myself it doesn't hurt and another round of ice might make it okay...but I doubt it.

That a good reason not to shop Walmart. Most of the people I see in those motorized shopping carts should be walking and losing a few pounds.

I found a sight quite by accident. More than 1500 recipes for a slow cooker. Winter is coming. Perfect timing.

Index of Slow Cooker Recipes by Ingredient

Enjoy.

You probably have never had a disability before. You should probably drive an aisle in their shoes before saying something like that.

+1. Not all disabilities are visible.
