There was an old rusty gas tank and some man that was even older tending to it. He couldn't understand our Boston accent. Spike couldn't understand his western accent. Spike finally gave up and told me to do the talking. then when we stopped off at a diner, it was full of ranchers. Spike said he wasn't going to go through "that" again. So he just pointed out on the menu what he wanted. I was surprised at how quickly I was able to slip right back into a western accent. You just have to make the sounds come from the back of your throat. That is why I can yodel and my kids can't. Bostonians don't do that. We only use our hard palate to talk.

Got Mom and Baby Brother aimed towards Idaho, Dad found them a freight load to pick up there and haul to Denver. Which means Mom will get to stop, see my Sister and her boys before she gets home.

Mom brought me a huge box of my baby pictures and all my annual school pictures, she included lots of scrapbook thingies and a purple leather scrapbook album so I can put them all together. What's the best glue to use on the pictures? I've never done any scrap-booking...I'm not a crafty type person...

There is a special glue tape or tabs you can buy at any hobby or craft store. That would be best.

Scan the pix before you put them in a book.

Okay...thanks for reminding me I can do that. There are three 8 x 10's that are original studio pictures. One is actually hand painted with water colors on a sepia tone.

Do you have Picasa image organizing software? It's free. A lot of old photos change colour. There's a thing in Picasa that's called "I'm feeling lucky" which applies some best guess corrections (easily un-doable). That did amazing improvements in the colour of a lot of my old photos. Picasa

I have it now, thanks! I'll have to use Shrek's computer, mine won't link to the printer/scanner.

Your welcome. I've used it to make some cool collages and assemblies of pix. Here's one from our anniversary in 2011:

That is nice! I hope I can do this justice. I'm really worried about messing up these pictures, but then I remember they are just for me.
