Project Scanner


Lou has Project Shed, and I am officially working on Project Scanner. Our new photo scanner arrived yesterday, and I have it set up and scanning away. The good news is, I will finally digitize the photos I would like to archive. The bad news is, I will now have a few thousand more digital photos to organize!

Here is a summary of how it works: I have it set up on our new desk space in the sunroom for easy access. I can scan photos while watching the news – the small black unit is the Epson Photo Scanner. I can feed up to 36 photos at a time and the scanner will scan both front and back and store the scanned images. Note – it will only record the back of a photo if there are notes on it.

Of course, there is more to it than just scanning. I have to find which photos are in which boxes, sort them and decide which ones to scan. Today, I worked on photos from our time at the Running Springs, CA house. Here are some random samples from today’s batch.

I started with some of our animals at the time …little Maggie was just a pup, and Hobbes was only a part time inside cat. He liked to sleep outside in the snow. The raccoons just wanted dog food.

Here are a few shots of the Running Springs house. we bought this house fully decorated, even including the wine glasses. Looking at the photos now, the wall paper and some other decorative effects might have been slightly overdone. But we loved the house and enjoyed living at 6,000 feet.

And, a couple snapshots of Lou and I … I don’t remember being this young, but it has been over 35 years.


I definitely have my work cut out for me with Project Scanner!

Our Favorite Bridge

Today’s destination was the Penobscot Narrows Bridge and the town of Bucksport. Teresa and her husband, Robert, joined us.

Pablo brought the boat from Belfast to our dock, since it is easier to load the dogs from home. Everybody had a good time. We had a sandwich picnic once we got to the Bridge. The dogs were well behaved and enjoyed their cruise.

Be Safe!

Yay – Boat Day!

We finally got the pups out on the boat for their introduction. Lou and Pablo were going over some of the boat systems, and I got to speed around in the dinghy.

The dogs were a little tentative at first, but Stitch found out he could run around the entire outside of the boat and he did that a number of times. I think Natasha was a little upset that it wasn’t “her” big boat 😊. She did fine, she just didn’t explore a lot. Plus, she had a vet visit this morning and had quite a few shots.

Here are a bunch of photos:
