The second one is of my father's parents... The oldest grandchild (my uncle's son) could not say grandma and grandpa when he was first starting to talk... he said "Moe and Boppie" and thus that is what they became to ALL the grandchildren. What a simple time that was. With our grandchildren there seems to be so much confusion. Our oldest grand daughter calls hubby Papa, which makes his daughter (hubby's daughter) angry because they had reserved that title for her husband's father. OK, so stay with me here. Her daughter did not come along for another year after he had been deemed Papa. So now he is grandpa to one and Papa to the others... silly, and petty, I know. I just think it gets a little complex. My sis decided she would be G-Ma to her grandson... and it stuck - sort of - she is G G since that was easier for him when he was little... it works though. I guess to me, it is the names that your grandchildren give you that are the ones that matter.
So there you have it, the start of the story for Bosco's Book (oh, do not tell him I called him that LOL). It has been a long road, but I have finished scanning all the family photos (@700 in all) plus all of the lost photos- that I found YAY! That was a couple hundred more. The massive photo sort is also complete. OK, I guess I know where I have been. Give me a little credit, I have stopped in to say hello to some of you. I just wasn't feel terribly inspired to post.
So here is a photo of what organized pics look like...
Oh yes, and for the fun of it, this is what 10 days of wood looks like. Hubby built this rack, so we can fill this and then pull wood from the garage to fill the inside wood box - which he also made. I am sure glad he got the table saw! The garage wood rack is so cool because it folds down into itself for easy storage when we aren't using it. It pays to marry an engineer. LOL Personally, I will be happy when we are no longer in need of the wood stove... (SUMMER anyone?!)
I am pleased I was able to pass on info regarding screen shots. I thought I was the only one who had trouble with them. It completely blows my mind how simple it actually is. I had looked it up originally on google - and there found that the screen shots went to the clipboard, which I had to jump through some hoops to find... and when I got Vista, Ihad to hunt for it again. But Vista left it out... OHHH do not get me started on Vista. (or The Company That Bill Built!!!!) Vista + Me = BAD THING!!! I have a wireless mouse and keyboard. It is a Microsoft - so you figure it would jive with Microsoft products. NOT!!! Apparently, my screen saver does not work because of the mouse.. and this just started with Vista. They know about it, and have known for quite some time - but do you think they would make a fix... NOOOO! I have been hunting down what to do. I did finally get my Hibernate to work, but it almost took an act of Congress. You see, as user me - I have Administrator privileges... but am not really the Administrator. The Admin is hiding somewhere in my puter... and I am on a mission to unhide her (me)... every time I go to do anything I have to get permission FROM ME!!!!! Now what kind of craziness is this. It does not help the whole concept of WORK FLOW! ARGGG!!!
Gee aren't you glad I showed up all sunshine and smiles?! Tomorrow I will go to town and hopefully return refreshed. I am thinking I really have to shake this cabin fever. Hawaii is sure sounding good! I have air miles.... hmmmm, do ya think hubby would go for it...
Have a great one... I am out of here!
ciao for naio,
