Updates on Everything

Alas, I am a Twentieth Century child in the Twenty-first Century.

Remember when I complained about a 35 cent can of tuna costing 65 cents? Cancel that...today it was 99 cents.  Well, there are lots more people who need to eat tuna, and fewer tuna to eat. Figures

Volkswagens are still great little cars.  Too bad they quit producing the BUG however.  That simple, but functional car, would be great in our traffic jammed streets.

Our rose bush is trying hard.  Has lots of buds and tiny blossoms.  Soon it will blossom and I have the camera ready.

Service in the dining room of the old folks home is a LITTLE better...except on Sunday mornings. They still seat people in the doorway to the parlor during gatherings.  I am a bit afraid to go in there because it is sometimes impossible to get out when you want.

David Burke has reached Washington State in his journey around the perimeter of the United States.  Bless his heart, he still reads this journal as he travels.  Are you reading his? (link)

I am putting those old family photos you have seen here, into a Family Album for my new great-grandson.  He is only a few months old, but I am sure his folks will save it for him until he is old enough to appreciate it. Oh...  I have discovered I can restore the old torn prints using the PAINT program.  I didn't know that before.  My first attempt was pretty good, and with patience and practice I am sure I can do better.

Correct me if I'm wrong...but they DO make the BUG...actually called BEETLE!

If you run across a photo that is too hard to retouch, there are websites out there that will do it for just a few dollars. I found www.fixuppix.com  It was only $30 and they had the restoration done in just a few days.

Hope this helps,
