Well, the holidays are finally over and hopefully, life can get back to normal, whatever that is.
We had a nice time with our children and grandchildren at Christmas even though the youngest granddaughter careened into a doorway edge and put a large dent into her forehead! Children are so resilient though and she was fine after a few minutes of intense wailing. We thought about taking her to the emergency room but it didn't seem necessary and the rest of the visit was completely normal. No problems since then either according to her father.
The scanner I had ordered arrived on the 23rd but I didn't have time to do much more than install it. It seems to work well although I have to tell a funny on myself about it.
I installed it and was really trying to get it to work and it just wouldn't produce any picture no matter what I tried. I ended up uninstalling everything and reinstalling it and even though it made all the proper noises and seemed to be working, it wouldn't scan my picture! I was beginning to think about returning it when I blew out my breath in frustration. A corner of a protective sheet of paper fluttered just the tiniest bit and after I removed the paper from the scanner glass, I was able to get a beautiful scan!
No nasty comments, please - remember, the same thing could happen to you!
