OK, this has to do with pictures. Hundreds and hundreds of them. Just to put it plainly, I wish all of our pictures were in long boxes with lids. All the pictures would be dated on the back and it wouldn't make any difference where they were......just keep them IN a box.
I have a suitcase full of random pictures that aren't in books. Where in the world did they all come from? Can you throw away pictures? (sara, do NOT answer)
You know what is really aggravating? Those old picture books with the cellophane wrapping type pages....kind of sticky, kind of electrified or something......well, they turn yellow and very unpleasant.
I'm just telling everybunny now, if we have to flee to the middle of the state because a hurricane is in the Gulf, there is a GREAT chance that not many pictures are going to come along with us.
I've got my pictures tamed, they are all in ONE old suitcase and ONE cabinet. They are going to stay just like they are until I have a day that I have NOTHING else to do but weed out and date and file and fix. But first, I will buy some long boxes. I am not going to *scrapbook* any pictures........I might as well face it. You that enjoy scrap-booking, have a great time. Without me.
I don't want to be a slave to pictures, I want to be able to enjoy them......
So, tell me about your pictures. Are they all standing at attention in beautiful black velvet books with ribbon ties? Are they in order? Do you have piles of pictures in different places that you are going to *fix up real nice* some day? Do you have envelopes with pictures in them waiting to be put in books you bought three years ago?
OR, are all your pictures, dated...........and in long boxes with lids?
*edited to add* What has digital pictures done to your habits of old? Do you still print pictures, REAL pictures, or do you have a nice program on your computer for them?
