All Set To Scan – Where Is The ScanSnap Icon?
Here I am again all set to do some scanning of some photos and postcards. I am looking for the ScanSnap icon in the array – but I am not finding it. I had it on the bigger computer but not here on my laptop. When we moved recently from our one bedroom apartment on Level 3 down to a studio apartment on Level 1 there was no longer space for the bigger computer and printer. (Happily they are now being used by one of my granddaughters – “it’s not lost what a friend gets”). I will see what I can do in the morning when I can confer with my Tech Adviser. Meanwhile here is an old photo which I scanned previously.
Duchess was my first dog. My father and my sister Ruth and I went to a kennel somewhat west of Boston and we saw an array of dogs/puppies. I remember the location as being quite rural.

Duchess was sick in the car on the way home, but I couldn’t have loved her more. She was the family dog through my growing up years.

I have also, for the first time ever, recorded this poem with a background track. Experimental it may be, but I am quite happy with the result. See what you think.
The Simple Things
The simple things of life delight
Children’s laughter, birds in flight
Grasses swaying in the breeze
Help to make my life of ease
The smell of new mown fields of hay
The rising sun at break of day
Autumn mists and wintry showers
Buzzing bees amongst the flowers
New made beds with smooth clean sheets
The smell of smoke…
