New Project(s)

OK, most of you probably know that when we go on trips, I take notes. Then I put our pictures and notes in albums. Well, when we went to China I put about 900 pictures on three CD's and took them to Sam's. That's when I learned that you don't give them the CD's. You upload the pictures on their machine. So I go to the kiosk, put in a CD, all my information and begin to upload the pictures and watch the machine go 1 of 297.........2 of 297.........3 of 297...... (remember I have THREE disks) so you get the picture, right? Then I get smart (ha!) and upload the pictures to Sams and have them mail them to me. Cheaper and saves gas. Well, I just got 500 pictures back from Sams. The bad news is they are in NO comprehensible order so I have piles of semi-sorted pictures all over my dining room table. I've never really considered myself obsessive-compulsive but I think we all that gene lurking. My OCD is I WILL put these pictures in order. So I have the laptop by the piles of pictures and am putting them in order. You're laughing, right? Want a bigger laugh? There are about 300 more pictures in this album I have yet to print AND I have two more trips to print (and sort). Good thing I'm retired!!! So, why am I sitting here typing? I have WORK to do!!!

Another Retirement Perk

You know how, on those chilly mornings, you wake up all toasty warm under the covers and you don't want to get out of bed? When you're retired, you don't have to! :-)
