Creeping Stealthily into "The" Bookshelf....
If you don't tell Randy, I'll share! I got into his collection and grabbed just a couple of his precious books, wanting to scan some of the awesome art in them. I tease him about his books, the mustier, the better! Oh well, I love most of the books he collects, especially the children's books. The "Lilly and Her Pony" is a tiny little book, I guess they sold for sixpence in their day, and came in series, "each with a coloured frontispiece and wood engravings." They were put out by the Religious Tract Society, were and are wonderful little books.
I got this idea that, while I was taking a break from the work for a moment this morning, I would scan a few things and share them. I also "stealthily" crept onto his dinosaur computer (good thing he likes old stuff, because I'll be getting there soon) because he's the one with the printer/scanner hooked to his computer. I had to bypass a little sign on his keyboard that says "Stay off my computer!" Can you believe that? I am sure it was meant for the kids. He just doesn't get it; he can't understand that the reason his computer is so slow is that it is sooooo old!
Well, before I have to get back to gathering more stuff, finishing some projects, cleaning up the tornado that happened last night while Kristin, Natalie, and I went up to work at the church until late last night. I felt bad, in fact, b/c Natalie was here until past 11 pm, and she had a drive to go. I hope she gets a good rest today!
I just had one scare that he caught me with his books, so I'd better finish up, get back to work on the "Gathering" (which I'll probably post a few photos of later today), I'll get them put on my post, then destroy the evidence on his computer, after transferring it to mine!
