Over the past 3 weeks, I’ve scanned > 2,000 photos, > 300 personal documents, and almost 500 pages of a “book” that my high school friend Christyne and I wrote in the late 1980’s. Phew!!!

So pretty! it only took me an hour and 15 minutes to make the 2nd star, versus 2½ hours for the first one 🙂

Until today! They let us out of work 3 hours early [woohoo!], and since I’m not traveling for Thanksgiving [thank god] I headed down to my basement workshop the minute I got home.
