If you are watching my progress on the project for Letters from Uncle Ralph, you might have noticed that by the 8th of July I was about two weeks behind schedule. I went into high gear transcribing, which wasn't too bad. After transcribing, I scan every page of every letter, envelope and clipping, and label appropriately in my computer. As my husband has noticed, my dog has noticed, and anyone who calls on the phone has noticed, I have been grumpy, grouchy, irritable -- especially after scanning.
The other day after a trip to the lab for some tests, I came home elated. The lab had this dandy scanner that you feed the sheets through in flash (or so it seemed to me). I want one, I need one. I came home and checked out the prices. Ouch! Even though I lust after this scanner, it is one of those things I Don't Have --- nor do I expect to get one in the foreseeable future. Be gone from my mind, ye beauteous temptress.
