The Writing Project
The idea was one I tucked away. I made one of my usual To Do lists, with the idea that it would be scanned and entered the day after I saw that entry. What I didn't realize is that I did not reload all the drivers to the HP when I had that lovely hard drive crash last year. The idea went on the back burner, saved for a rainy day.
Yesterday's post HAD to have the picture that graces our fridge, one taken by Bawb when I visited Chicago to move Ed back east. July 5, 1995, Lakeshore Drive, Chi Town. That was a great trip and the start of an adventure for the two of us. The flippant pose? That sums the two of us up nicely.
My handwriting? It's not as cute as the picture. I spend far more time using a keyboard than printing things. The list I'd made was a hasty print, legible, but if you need to know whether that's a 5 or an S, I'm sorry to say, you'd be out of luck.
At the same time, Donna and I were about to do the great camera swap. She needed instructions for the camera I was sending. Not the stupid manual, a cheat sheet of what the camera does. Something she could keep with the camera, the prevent her from missing the shots of the vistas of Europe. I made a copy of the instructions, thinking it might be good to use with the kids in the event that I get a new camera and they inherit the old.
This is one page of the instructions, with diagrams and all. If Jennifer's writing sample shows she's very organized in thought and action, mine shows I'm hurried, frazzled and a wise ass. Decide for yourselves:
If you're a blogger, looking for a topic, this one is easy to do. Why not post the grocery list? (I know Saffa's wont be a list of wines this month, waaaaah) A wish list if the prize patrol shows up at YOUR door and they're not looking for me? Your favorite recipe?
