Ok, In A Better Mood Today…

But have a headache developing. Oh Joy!

Let’s see… SWMBO took me to the All-You-Can-Eat Chinese food place over on Bethel for lunch yesterday. Food was good but the company was much better. Then we zoomed out to the Silverdale Mall and walked some of that lunch off. Then back home for SSDD. Smile

Got my new 110 film scanner in yesterday. Had to pick it up at the Post Office cause the box Amazon shipped it in was way too big for our mailbox. They *coulda* put it in a smaller box!


So, spent several hours yesterday, and this morning, scanning all my old 110 sized negatives. Man, some of those pictures haven’t seen the light of day since they were taken! Was only about 1300 110 scans; a little bit more with playing around with the old Kodak sizes. I don’t know how I’m going to easily scan those! Don’t know how I’m going to scan all those large format negatives from High School either. I may have to build something special…


The final scans aren’t the absolute best but more than adequate. Way better (and cheaper)  than having prints made then scanning those. You gotta remember that the 110 sized film can’t gather a whole lot of information/light and anything that small blown up is going to be somewhat grainy. I’m happy with the quality and it’ll be fine enough for archiving purposes.


NMARES meeting went okay last Thursday evening. Actually had 7 people show up. Dang! Lot’s of hoohaha  going on about the club Constitution and By-Laws. Club Officer elections coming up pretty soon. I will NOT be club President any longer! “They” also decided to shut down the club website; just not taking in enough in dues to pay for it. So, I think I’ll port it over to wordpress.com and just pony up the annual domain name charges. They’re also not understanding that the website could notify everyone of when the next meeting is if only they’d subscribe to the posts. They’d rather someone send out an e-mail with that info. Oh well, I guess not all us old guys can clue in on technology! Rolling on the floor laughing


And that’s about it for today. Gotta get some dishes done if I expect us to cook and eat dinner.

Damned Headaches!

I *HATE* waking up with a headache! I really do think it’s the change in the barometric pressure or somehow weather related ‘cause each time the weather changes I get one of these damned headaches! AAAaarrrrrggggghhhhh!


So, didn’t get a whole lot done today. Some laundry. Made Chicken Noodle soup for dinner cause SWMBO is having some chest congestion and I thought it might help. No, I know it won’t help clear up the actual congestion, but, when someone makes chicken noodle soup for you then you know they care. And maybe that makes you feel a bit better. Smile


OTT, not much going on. Pulled all the pictures out of an old (OLD) photo album of SWMBO’s so I can scan them. Not going to put them back; they’ll take up a lot less room in an envelope in a box. Get to do the same thing to a couple more albums.


Had a serious enquiry on the Digger that didn’t pan out. Guy lives in Vaughn (wherever that is) and messaged me that he found a Digger closer to home. Bummer. I don’t want to sell her but need to so we can pay off some of our bills and SWMBO won’t feel the pressure to work so much.

The other guy is coming over to pay for the Dump Truck tomorrow and figure out how large a trailer he’ll need to haul it off. That money will come in handy.
